Apple Pay must be used through App?

I am trying to see if I can integrate Apple Pay into my web-based payment system. Currently to process a swiped credit card, I use a USB magnetic reader which inputs data into an HTML form, and I submit the data through my server to Authorize.net.

 

I was originally thinking that I might be able to get the Apple Pay data into an HTML form similarly, but obviously this depends on how the readers work. Now, after reading the Authorize.net Apple Pay API information, it looks like the only way to submit ApplePay transactions to Authorize.net is through an iOS app. This is clearly not how it is working at major retailers, where the NFC reader acts as an intermediary, so I am confused and disappointed.

 

Can someone please confirm or deny that I cannot get the Apple Pay data directly from the reader into an HTML form and then submit the data through my server to Authorize.net?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello @seakayaker4life 

 

I can confirm that it is not possible to accept Apple Pay on a web page.
