Merchants and developers can now easily add Apple Pay to their checkout flow in addition to PayPal, credit cards, and debit cards. Braintree are continuously expanding their platform to enable merchants to deliver the best commerce experiences, and their extension of Apple Pay support to UK developers furthers our mission to support multiple wallets.
