With macOS Sierra, you can make payment on the web using Safari on your Mac. However, it requires you to authenticate the payment on your iPhone or Apple Watch.
Currently, very few websites such as Wayfair, Time Inc or online Apple Store support Apple Pay on the web. Besides, payment processors like Shopify, Squarespace, Stripe and Big Commerce support Apple Pay. We expect more merchants to offer the support to Apple Pay in coming few months.
