Wikipedia now accepts donations through Apple Pay on its website


Popular online encyclopedia Wikipedia recently updated its website with a new, small but interesting feature for iOS and macOS users. Wikipedia is finally accepting Apple Pay as a payment method on its website, making it easier for users to send donations to the nonprofit.

As Nikolaj Hansen-Turton noted on Twitter, there is now an Apple Pay button right next to the credit card and PayPal options when sending a donation. With just a few clicks, iPhone, iPad and Mac users can choose an amount and pay using the cards stored in the Apple Wallet app.

Wikipedia is a nonprofit project of the Wikimedia Foundation that does not charge users. To keep Wikipedia alive, the organization always asks for donations from those who access the website.

We’re a non-profit organization that depends on donations to stay online and thrive, but 98% of our readers don’t; they’re just looking the other way. If everyone who reads Wikipedia gave just a little, we could make Wikipedia thrive for years to come. The price of a cup of coffee is all we ask. […] Wikipedia is a place to learn, not a place to advertise. The heart and soul of Wikipedia is a community of people working to give you unlimited access to reliable and neutral information.

It should be noted that the Apple Pay option is still being rolled out gradually to users around the world, so you may not be able to find it at this time, depending on your current location. For more information, see the donations page on the Wikipedia site.
