There are many other features of Apple Pay that you could challenge yourself to add to your app:

  • Calculate sales tax on the server and update the tax amount in summaryItems.
  • Change the available shipping methods based on the ZIP code.
  • Read the order information on the server and verify that the address is valid as a shipping destination.
  • Store products, shipping methods, and prices for each product on the server instead of hardcoded into your app.
  • Create your own customized Apple Pay button by following the Apple Pay guidelines.
