Android Pay and Apple Pay have gained a lot of ground in the recent years and they’ve become the new standard for payments in mobile apps. If you have a native checkout experience in your apps, consider using them as your main method of payment. Otherwise, you’ll be missing on great opportunities.
As more and more users love the simple process of paying with these methods, React Native developers are facing the challenge of integrating Apple and Android Pay into their mobile apps.
Until now. React Native Payments represents a react native module which allows mobile developers to easily accept Android Pay and Apple Pay in their react native apps. It takes advantage of the Payment Request protocol, which standardizes the way merchants accept payments over the Internet.
We’ve tried the open-source library ourselves and we used it into one of our React Native E-commerce Templates. The documentation on the GitHub page is very comprehensive and it allows you to add payments to your app effortlessly. It describes exactly how to install the npm package and how to use it. It also lists all the differences between iOS and Android, so that you won’t go through the trouble of figuring them out by yourself.
