just Love this app.

This app configured to use with my Paypal account makes getting the best deals from just better deals. I use this in all my shopping online. It just that simple to use. Go to the website you would like to order from place things in your cart. After HONEY is downloaded and Bamm there are multiple codes you wouldn't have norman access to... use Honey as you will not be disappointed. Some larger stores don't accept honey but they all seem to realize its costing them steeper discounts just to compete with the HONEY APP. Just do it, you won't regret it. Safe shopping on unsafe places as Honey won't be allowed which would be good for you as they don't need your business unless they will work a lower price for you. Greedy stores don't like honey, I wonder why lol. Best app ever !!
To respond to the devloper comment, it wasn't the codes that usually didn't work that ultimately made me remove it from my computer, it was how horrible it made Safari run. The Honey Extension really slowed things down. Between this and the fact that the codes didn't always work, I removed it. And FWIW, I didn't ever enter codes, I just let Honey do it, but like I mentioned, most times they didn't work... I downloaded this a couple of months ago on my MBA. Over the last couple of months, it has "saved" me some money on a few random purchases without me actually having to search for codes and trying them. I never signed up with Honey, I just let it do it's thing when browsing for items to buy. Most times it didn't do anything though... Anyway, I have noticed the last few weeks that my computer has been going really slow.... and this came on suddenly. I have gigabit internet and my computers no slouch, so I knew something was wrong... I had a hunch that it may be this app slowing everything down so today I deleted it from my computer.... and BAM! My computer is back to lightening fast! So, nevermind the fact that this is just a data miner (but what isn't anymore?) but this was an ok app. Too bad it slowed everything down so much though... I couldn't take how much it slowed Safari down and took it off... and it won't be back. I'll just have to go back to using google to search for coupons again! lol.

Developer Response ,

Hey there, thanks for reaching out! It's possible that code you used just didn't apply to the items in your cart. Our system monitors coupon activity - If it finds that a coupon code hasn’t been working for any of our members, it will be removed from our system. We do not sell your personal information. Ever. Honey works by finding you the best deals. When you buy something with a Honey coupon, promo code, or offer, the store sometimes pays us a fee. That’s how we make money. We do not need to (or want to) sell your information.

Smart way of collecting user data

I used this app, and in the beginning, it saved me a few bucks. Sure, it is convenient to have an automatic coupon search when they even work. It is, however, unclear how to use the accumulated reward points (I guess they're helpful to use within their affiliated merchants?). Anyway, despite its usefulness or not, I uninstalled this app given the incredible amount of personal data it collects from users, including financial information, browser history, searches, location, and so much more. They build a comprehensive profile of their users to serve whatever business they run behind the curtains based on user data mining. Suppose this is okay if you don't mind giving away your sensitive data for free (the coupons are searchable anyway). Honey is a Paypal service, a company whose business model and ethics are not on my best consideration. If you make heavy use of online shopping, you can save a few dollars the easy way, but the trade of my personal information for such a convenience is definitely not worth it.
Hey there! We're happy to clarify. When you earn enough, you can redeem your Honey Gold for a gift card of your choice on the Redemption Page. In terms of privacy, we only read the page when you're on a whitelisted shopping site so that we can find coupon codes for you. If you're not on a shopping site on our whitelist, then we don't track or see any of your browsing. Our extension never collects other sites' passwords, phone numbers, or your credit card info. Additionally, we do not sell your personal information. Ever. Honey works by finding you the best deals. When you buy something with a Honey coupon, promo code, or offer, the store sometimes pays us a fee. That’s how we make money. We do not need to (or want to) sell your information. You can read more about the commitment in our Privacy Policy: http://bit.ly/2QlMqqe.

PayPal Announces Support for Safari Passkeys Feature

Popular payments service PayPal today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for PayPal accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16, and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and macOS Ventura, coming today.

paypal passkey

PayPal says that passkey logins will be available to iPhone , iPad , and Mac users on the PayPal website, and it will expand to other platforms in the future. Passkeys replace passwords, and will allow users to log in without remembering a password.

To create a passkey, PayPal users can log in to the website and then choose the "Create a passkey" option. Passkeys on iOS and Mac devices sync with iCloud Keychain for security purposes, and logins are authenticated with Face ID or Touch ID .

While PayPal is one of the first companies to implement passkeys support, there are other apps and websites that it works with, including Best Buy, eBay, Dashlane, and Kayak.

Paypal to Block Apple Safari Browser, Other Browsers

paypal question

Paypal has announced that they are going to block browsers which do not support EV SSL certificate anti-phishing technology, which include the Apple Safari web browser, along with a few other browsers. The online payment service, purchased by eBay for $1.5B back in 2002, in the good old days of rampant Internet mergers and acquisitions, has become a frequent target of phishers and hackers. Anxious to recapture their good name and to offer to sellers and buyers alike a more secure environment, PayPal plans to discontinue support for web browsers that do not include anti-phishing capabilities. If this plan goes through, PayPal will block Safari and older versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Netscape.

*Note: Since publication of this article, we have been made aware of one comment, to one story, by a Paypal employee refuting that Paypal plans to block Safari. Said Mike Oldenburg, of Paypal Corporate Communications, “We have absolutely no intention of blocking current versions of any browsers, including Apple’s Safari, from our website.” Weasel words, we think – exactly how is Oldenburg defining “current”? We suggest that they probably mean “up-to-date with current anti-phishing technology”, which Safari is not at this time, and that if and when Safari adds that current anti-phishing technology, it will be supported. A look at Paypal’s own website shows that they are now all about anti-phishing technology-enabled web browsers. (By the way, nothing wrong with that.)

EBay’s Chief Information Security Officer, Michael Barrett, and Director of Information Security, Dan Levy, recently co-authored a white paper disclosing this move, writing that in their view, “letting users view the PayPal site on an unsafe browser is equal to a car manufacturer allowing drivers to buy one of their vehicles without seatbelts.”

In that white paper, an official PayPal white paper entitled “A Practical Approach to Managing Phishing”, they say, and we quote:

At PayPal, we are in the process of re-implementing controls which will first warn our customers when logging in to PayPal from those browsers that we consider unsafe. Later, we plan on blocking customers from accessing the site from the most unsafe – usually the oldest – browsers. The Internet Patrol is completely free, and reader-supported. Your tips via CashApp, Venmo, or Paypal are appreciated! Receipts will come from ISIPP. CashApp us Venmo us Paypal us (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Somehow, we think we’ll give a bit more weight to what PayPal’s Chief Information Security Officer and their Director of Information Security have to say than to what some Corporate Communications flack posts in a comment to an article on a 3rd-party site. A request to clarify the impact this move will have on Safari users posted on the PayPal blog has yet gone unanswered.

[You can download a PDF of the Paypal white paper on security and anti-phishing here .]

It is at this point that we should make clear that we applaud PayPal for their position, the white paper, and their efforts. But they should also make an unequivocal public statement as to whether or not people who use Safari will be blocked from accessing the PayPal sites and services.

So back to unsafe browsers and seatbeltless cars, it’s time to buck up and buckle up, people. PayPal said recently that it still sees site visitors using the decade-old Internet Explorer 3, released when security was little more than making sure that nobody was looking over your shoulder as you entered your password. The security situation is much more complex today, but PayPal intend to transition themselves and their users to superior security in the future. And it does appear that in order to curb attempted security breaches, in particular phishing hacks, PayPal will after this transition only permit transactions with browsers that support Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates.

Users will be warned if they use an insecure browser, and if they persist they will be prevented from accessing the site until they upgrade.

Tip: When your integration is ready to go live, read the Go live section for details about the additional steps needed for Apple Pay onboarding.

2. Getting started in your testing environment

Before you develop your Apple Pay on the Web integration, you need to complete Get started to set up your PayPal account, client ID, and sandbox emails for testing.

  • Download and host the domain association file for your sandbox environment.
  • Register your sandbox domain.
  • Create an Apple Pay sandbox account for testing. You don't need an Apple developer account to go live.

Important: You need to verify any domain names that you want to show an Apple Pay button. Apple rejects payments from unverified domains. The Apple Pay payment method won't work if the domain isn't registered.

Download and host sandbox domain association file

  • Download the domain association file for your sandbox environment.
  • Host the file on your test environment at /.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association.

Register your sandbox domains

  • Go to your PayPal Developer Dashboard.
  • Register all high-level domains and subdomains that show the Apple Pay button, such as businessexample.com and checkout.businessexample.com.
  • After the domains and subdomains are registered, you can test the Apple Pay buttons after you register the domains and subdomains.

Create Apple Pay sandbox account

If you already have an Apple sandbox account, you can use that account and move on to the next step.

  • Create an Apple developer account .
  • Create an Apple sandbox account .
  • Get test cards from your Apple sandbox account.

3. Integrate Apple Pay checkout

Follow this integration process to add Apple Pay as a checkout option, customize the payment experience, and process payments.

Important: You can find a complete example in the GitHub repo .

Call the Orders API

To accept Apple Pay directly on your website, create API endpoints on your server that communicate with the PayPal Orders V2 API . These endpoints can create an order, authorize payment, and capture payment for an order.

Server-side example (Node.js)

The following example uses the PayPal Orders V2 API to add routes to an Express server for creating orders and capturing payments.

  • paypal-api.js

4. Set up your Apple Pay button

You need to Integrate with the Apple Pay JavaScript SDK and PayPal JavaScript SDK to add Apple Pay to your site.

Integrate PayPal JavaScript SDK

Use this script to integrate with the PayPal JavaScript SDK:

Include applepay in the components list.

Integrate Apple JavaScript SDK

Use this script to integrate with the Apple JavaScript SDK:

PayPal's Apple Pay component interacts with your JavaScript code in 4 areas:

  • Checking merchant eligibility for Apple Pay: paypal.Applepay().config() .
  • Creating an Apple Pay session.
  • Handling the onvalidatemerchant callback: paypal.Applepay().validateMerchant() .
  • Handling the onpaymentauthorized callback: paypal.Applepay().confirmOrder() .

Before you show the Apple Pay button, make sure that you can create an Apple Pay instance and that the device can make an Apple Pay payment.

Use ApplePaySession.canMakePayments to check if the device can make Apple Pay payments.

Tip: When testing, you need to be logged into the iCloud account for your testing environment. Testing in the sandbox requires you to log into an iTunes Connect sandbox tester account , which you can create with an Apple Developer account . When you test in a live environment, log into a live iCloud account.

Check for device and merchant eligibility before setting up the Apple Pay button.

To check eligibility, use the PayPal JavaScript SDK API paypal.Applepay().config() .

Tip: You can find more details on how to set up the Apple Pay button in Apple's developer documentation .

5. Create Apple Pay session

The ApplePaySession object manages the Apple Pay payment process on the web. Create a new ApplePaySession each time a buyer explicitly requests a payment, such as inside an onclick event. If you don't create an ApplePaySession each time, you get a "Must create a new ApplePaySession from a user gesture handler" JavaScript exception. For more information about this error, visit Apple's Creating an Apple Pay Session page.

For each ApplePaySession , create an ApplePayPaymentRequest object, which includes information about payment processing capabilities, the payment amount, and shipping information.

The response object of the PayPal JavaScript SDK API paypal.Applepay().config() provides the following parameters in the ApplePayPaymentRequest object:

  • countryCode
  • merchantCapabilities
  • supportedNetworks

Include the new ApplePaySession inside a gesture handler, such as an onclick event or an addEventListener click handler.

Creating an ApplePaySession object throws a JavaScript exception if any of the following occurs:

  • Any Apple Pay JavaScript API is called from an insecure page that doesn't use https .
  • An incorrect payment request is passed. Payment requests are incorrect if they contain missing, unknown or invalid properties, or if the total amount is negative.

onvalidatemerchant callback

Use paypal.Applepay().validateMerchant() in the onvalidatemerchant callback to create a validated Apple Pay session object:

onpaymentauthorized callback

Safari calls the  onpaymentauthorized  callback with an  event  object. The event object passes a  token  which you need to send to PayPal to confirm the order.

Capture the order using the PayPal Orders V2 API . Use paypal.Applepay().confirmOrder() to send the orderID , the Apple Pay token, billing contact details, and confirm the order.

6. Show the payment sheet

After you have created the Apple Pay session and added the callbacks, call the session.begin  method to show the payment sheet. You can only call the  begin  method when a buyer explicitly requests a payment, such as inside an  onclick  event. The begin method throws a JavaScript exception if the buyer does not explicitly request the action:

After the buyer starts a payment in the browser, they use their Apple device to authorize the payment.

Customize payment

Customize the payment experience using the Apple Pay JavaScript SDK .

Per Apple's development guidelines, your Apple Pay integration needs to follow these rules:

  • The last step of an Apple Pay transaction should be when the buyer uses the payment sheet to confirm the payment.
  • Don't ask the buyer to complete additional confirmation after they use the Apple Pay payment sheet to confirm the payment.
  • Don't allow changes to the order after the buyer confirms the payment on the Apple Pay payment sheet.

The commonly used customizations for Apple Pay are:

7. Test your integration

Test your Apple Pay integration in the PayPal sandbox and production environments to ensure that your app works correctly.

Use your personal sandbox login information during checkout to complete a payment using Apple Pay. Then, log into the sandbox site sandbox.paypal.com to see that the money has moved into your account.

  • Open your test page with the Safari web browser on an iOS device or computer.
  • Get a test card from your Apple sandbox account.
  • Add the test card to your Apple Wallet on your iOS device or by using the Safari browser on the web.
  • Tap the Apple Pay button to open a pop-up with the Apple Pay payment sheet.
  • Make a payment using the Apple Pay payment sheet.
  • If you have an additional confirmation page on your merchant website, continue to confirm the payment.
  • Log in to your merchant account and continue to your confirmation page to confirm that the money you used for payment showed up in the account.

Make Apple Pay available to buyers using your website or app.

Important: Before going live, complete production onboarding to process Apple Pay payments with your live PayPal account.

Live environment

If you're a new merchant, sign up for a PayPal business account .

Use your personal production login information during checkout to complete an Apple Pay transaction. Then log into paypal.com to see the money move out of your account.

Getting started in your live environment

Verify any domain names in your live environment that will show an Apple Pay button. Apple Pay transactions only work on a domain and site registered to you.

  • Download and host the domain association file for your live environment.
  • Register your live domain on your PayPal Developer Dashboard.

Important: The Apple Pay payment method won't work if the domain and site aren't registered. The merchant that owns the domain is responsible for registering that domain.

Prerequisites

Enable Apple Pay for your live account:

  • Log into the PayPal Developer Dashboard with your live PayPal account.
  • Select the Sandbox/Live toggle so it shows Live .
  • Scroll down to Features .
  • Select the Apple Pay checkbox and select the Save link.

Create an app:

  • Create an app similar to what you created in the sandbox. You don't need to log into a separate test account.

Download and host live domain association file

Host a domain association file for each high-level domain and subdomain that show the Apple Pay button.

  • Download the domain association file for your live environment.
  • https://example.com/.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association
  • https://subdomain.example.com/.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association

Note: Remove the file extension from the domain association file when you host it on your server.

Register your live domain on PayPal

Add all high-level domains that show the Apple Pay button.

  • Select your app.
  • Scroll down to Features > Accept payments > Advanced Credit and Debit Card Payments .
  • Check if Apple Pay is enabled. If Apple Pay isn't enabled, select the Apple Pay checkbox and select the Save link to enable Apple Pay.
  • Select the Manage link in the Apple Pay section.
  • Select Add Domain and enter your domain name.
  • Select Register Domain . If registration fails, check that the domain association file is live and saved to the right place on your live site.

After your domain is registered:

  • The domain appears under Domains registered with Apple Pay .
  • Buyers can make payments using the Apple Pay button on the registered website.

Testing in your live environment

When testing a purchase in production, consider:

  • The business account receiving money can't also make the purchase.
  • If you create a personal account with the same information as the business account, those accounts might experience restrictions.

How to test Apple Pay payments in a live environment:

  • Open your test page with Safari on iOS or desktop.
  • Select the Apple Pay button to open a pop-up with the Apple Pay payment sheet.
  • Proceed with the Apple Pay checkout transaction.
  • If you have an additional confirmation page on your merchant website, confirm the payment.
  • Log in to your merchant account and confirm that the money has moved into that account.

Troubleshoot your integration

Make sure that there are no browser console warnings or errors. The JavaScript SDK configuration attributes have distinct validation checks for input formatting and values.

If the validation fails, the web browser's developer console shows warning messages that say which property is incorrect and what you need to do to address the issue. The library generally attempts to revert to the safe default values if missing or incorrect inputs exist.

Next steps & customizations

Get started testing, add security to your checkout experience or create customizations for your audience.

PayPal to pilot new AI-powered updates, including a cash-back feature and ‘Smart Receipts’

paypal on safari

PayPal announced today that it will begin piloting a few new upcoming updates to its service, some of which will leverage AI-driven personalization. The company is introducing a new “CashPass” cash-back offering called “Smart Receipts,” with personalized recommendations, enhanced checkout and guest experiences, Venmo enhancements for small businesses and a new offers platform for merchants.

The company announced that its app is getting a new “CashPass” feature that gives customers access to hundreds of personalized cash-back offers. If you come across an offer you like, all you need to do is click on it, shop at the brand, and then check out with PayPal. The company says CashPass uses AI to organize personalized offers for users based on their shopping behaviors. The app will surface new offers regularly, so customers are encouraged to check it often.

PayPal plans to launch CashPass in March with a handful of partners, including Best Buy, eBay, Priceline, Ticketmaster, Uber, Walmart and McDonald’s. Users will be able to stack the offers with other PayPal rewards, such as cash back from the PayPal Cashback Mastercard.

With PayPal’s new AI-powered “Smart Receipts” feature for customers and brands, when customers shop with PayPal, they will soon receive a receipt that will let them track the order and see predictions of what they may want to buy next from the brand. The receipts will leverage AI-powered suggestions that are based on shopper behavior data, combined with what PayPal can see across the web.

With Smart Receipts, brands will be able to include a personalized recommendation along with a cash-back reward offer on the receipt in order to increase their chances of re-engaging directly with customers.

The company is also launching a new “Fastlane” service that offers a one-click guest checkout experience that will allow users to make quick purchases on merchant websites that use PayPal’s platform. PayPal notes that standard guest checkout experiences are slow and require users to update their credit card information and shipping address. Customers will soon be able to save their information with Fastlane to check out in one tap. They won’t need to enter a username or password or update their personal information.

As for PayPal’s regular checkout experience, the company says it has accelerated it to improve latency to enable customers to check out faster. PayPal is also integrating its Passkey support directly into the redesigned checkout experience. Plus, the checkout experience will leverage AI to get “smarter and faster over time,” the company says.

In addition, PayPal announced that it’s introducing enhanced Venmo business profiles to help small businesses get discovered. Venmo launched business profiles back in 2021 to provide an easy way for businesses to accept payments, but PayPal says it’s aware that it can be hard to stand out on social media and get noticed, which is why it’s launching the next evolution of business profiles. The new profiles will add subscribe buttons, profile rankings and the ability to offer promotions to consumers.

For merchants, PayPal is building a personalized advanced offers platform that will offer them the ability to reach customers based on what they have actually bought across the internet. The platform will use AI to “organize and analyze data from nearly half a trillion dollars’ worth of merchant transactions globally,” PayPal says. The platform will also allow merchants to customize offers for customers. Customers who don’t want their data used to receive more relevant offers can opt out from having their data shared with merchants.

PayPal finds a new use for its stablecoin as it looks for ways to fend off Apple

PayPal website on a smartphone

If your company has a venture capital arm and its own stablecoin, why not find a way to combine the two? That’s what PayPal did on Friday when it used PYUSD—the $1 token it launched last August—to distribute $5 million of its $6.5 million in a crypto-focused startup .

It was a clever trick to give a little boost to PYUSD, whose launch was hailed as an important new bridge between crypto and mainstream finance, but whose adoption has been underwhelming. As of this week, PYUSD’s market cap is only $300 million, which is ninth among all stablecoins and less than 1% of category leaders USDC and Tether. Part of the problem may be a chicken-and-egg thing as PayPal must show a critical mass of people using PYUSD to get others to follow suit—and so using its own venture investments seems shrewd.

If all goes well and PYUSD catches on more broadly, PayPal will have a new source of growth at a time when it badly needs one. Shareholders are fed up with the company as its stock trades around $61, down over 80% from a pandemic-induced sugar high that saw PYPL reach a record $308.

PayPal’s first-year CEO, Alex Chriss, didn’t help his cause when he went on CNBC earlier this month to say the firm would roll out product updates that would “shock the world”—remarks that caused shares to climb 5% in anticipation, but then fall by more than that amount after analysts concluded they were more bored than shocked by the announcements. There’s a reason the adage goes “underpromise and over deliver” and not the other way round.

That said, Chriss does not have an easy hand to play since product tweaks are unlikely to do anything to help PayPal with its biggest problem: Apple. The iPhone maker’s Apple Pay service is gobbling market share when it comes to e-commerce and retail transactions, and a good part of that is coming at the expense of PayPal. Short of PayPal launching a hardware device to compete with iPhone, which won’t happen for obvious reasons, it’s hard to see how the company fights back. Meanwhile, PayPal also has strained relations with another tech giant, Amazon, which booted its Venmo service in December.

Given all this, PayPal’s best bet to become a growth story once again is by winning the next era of payments technology. That era is likely to feature plenty of AI—which featured prominently in the company’s recent announcements—as well as stablecoins. PayPal is on the right track in both these areas, but it will also need plenty of luck if it’s going to hold its ground for the long term.

I'm having the same issue. can't get PayPal to open at all - not available when trying to purchase from another website, can't get the app to open on my phone or iPad. can only get the website to open on my MacBook if I use the Firefox browser - but then I don't see the "manage open sessions" that you are referring to on the security tab. I have restarted devices, reinstalled the app, changed the password. Nothing works.

any other ideas from anyone?

Aug 5, 2021 5:58 AM in response to a.triple.eff

I had this same issue but I could get into my account through google chrome web browser on my PC. Once logged in on I turned off two factor authentication in the settings menu of Paypal. I also cleared cookies on my safari web browser on my Iphone. All software and app versions were up to date.

Once I turned off the two factor authentication I got logged right in on safari and then through the iOS app as well. Hopefully this helps someone.

I had a similar problem, after entering my login credentials I was greeted with an unchanging blank screen. I have managed to regain access on my iPhone by logging in via the web and disabling 2FA as I suspected that might be the issue. I can now login normally on my iPhone, but without 2FA. I will try resetting 2FA again in a few days and see what happens.

Sep 15, 2021 7:06 PM in response to hwayner45

This actually worked for me! I've been trying for two months, changed my password (through Google Chrome) and reinstalled the app 3 times with no luck. But turning off two-factor authentication did it . Thank you for this tip.

Sep 20, 2021 5:06 PM in response to XxETHAN80xX

That didn’t work for me, I did turn off 2 factor authorization and was able to get into paypal to check out, before that it didn’t work on any of my IOS devices (I have a lot). I wish they’d fix it, so I can turn 2 factor back on.

Nov 12, 2021 12:37 PM in response to maudefall21

I was experiencing a similar thing with the PayPal app (8.6.1) on iOS (14.8.1). Just the blank screen waiting for the 2FA to load. My last attempt i waited for 3 minutes and it finally loaded. I didn't time it prior to that (and while I think it was the current version of the PayPal app, I had deleted it to reinstall prior to checking the version I was on, I suspect it was the current one as it was updated 2 days ago).

I'm not interested in turning off 2FA, so it looks like I'll just need to wait until this clears up.

I noticed too, when I tried to log in with Chrome (Version 95.0.4638.69) on Catalina (10.15.7) that it took a while to load as well. I looked for the security and current sessions to see if that was an issue, but was unable to find that option in the security tab.

Thanks for the DNS hint!

Easy to test by turning off WiFi, which proved that I could sign in over cellular. So I switched my router's DNS servers to Cloudfare's (1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1) and now it works over WiFi as well.

No more disabling 2-step verification when I need to use PayPal on my phone. Nice!

Oct 20, 2021 4:39 PM in response to maudefall21

Change your WiFi dns to Google

8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4

This method worked for me without having to disable 2fa
