Hi. I am at a total loss as to how to configure my Wordpress website (running WooCommerce) to enable Apple Pay. Apparently I am supposed to be able to accept payments through this Square, but am not able. Google Pay set up was no problem. 


I cannot find any instruction on Square on how to set this up.

The square plugin on WooCommerce is pretty abysmal at best. 


The closest to helpful thing I found was to connect to my Square Developer page and 'open the application which connects my Square account and Woo. I cannot find this, or do not have it. 😞


If you would be able to point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful.
