Apple & Google Pay

About Apple & Google Pay for Web

Apple & Google Pay for Web are payment methods that allow viewers to pay for online content using their Apple or Google Wallets.

For viewers to be able to use these methods, they will have to:

  • Be in a supported country (click here and here for details),
  • Use a browser that supports Apple or Google Pay, and be logged into their browser with the account on which they’ve set up their wallet. They can still use a different email for their actual InPlayer paywall account.
  • Have their Apple or Google Wallet already set up with a valid payment method, like a credit card.
    Note that the Google and Apple Wallet cards are separate from the cards saved in Google Play and iTunes and the credit cards saved in the browser.

Note that Apple and Google Pay for Web are only available for pay-per-view (ppv) price options. They are not available for subscriptions.

Viewer experience

This is the experience a viewer will have when making an Apple or Google Pay purchase.

Once they go to your webpage, they click the BUY button on the asset.

They log into their account (or sign up for a new one).

They choose the pass they wish to purchase and click NEXT.

They are forwarded to the final payment screen.
Here they click on either the Google Pay or the Apple Pay button at the top of the screen.
Whether the viewer sees the Google Pay or the Apple Pay button will depend on the browser the viewer uses. For Chrome, they will see Google Pay, and for Safari they will see Apple Pay.

They click on Pay now.

They will then be taken to their Apple or Google Wallet where they will be able to choose their card and complete their payment.

Once the payment is complete, the paywall will disappear and they will be able to see the content.

This concludes our guide.

Our platform supports In-app payments for Google, Apple, Amazon, and Roku, which means you can integrate the paywall in your apps and sell your content there.

Enabling In-app payments

If you wish to enable In-app payments on your InPlayer account, just send us an email at or contact your InPlayer account manager.

To learn more about setting up the various In-app payment methods check out these guides.

Viewer experience

The viewer experience of purchasing an InPlayer asset via your app is exactly the same as the experience of making a regular In-app payment.

There are no extra steps to follow. The viewer just follows your app’s regular payment flow.

Note that the viewers always need to log into the app where they watch the content with the same account as the one they used to purchase the content originally.

Managing subscription cancelations

Since In-app subscriptions are controlled directly via the systems of their respective platforms (Google, Apple, Roku, Amazon), there is no way for an In-app subscription to be canceled via the InPlayer Dashboard.
When a viewer wishes to cancel an In-app subscription, they will need to do so via the settings in their In-app platform’s account.

Viewer instructions for doing so can be found here.

Managing refunds

Similar to subscription cancelations, refunds for In-app payments cannot be done via the InPlayer Dashboard, due to the refund policies of Google, Apple, Roku, and Amazon.

To get a refund, viewers will have to follow the standard refund rules for the In-app platform in question.
Below you can find links to the official refund instructions for each platform:
