Apple Wallet

Apple Wallet allows you to keep credit cards, transit cards, event tickets, and a lot more at hand by adding it to your Apple device's wallet. It's also possible to add a pass to an android device but requires you to have an app installed such as WalletPasses.


Get in touch with our customer service to enable the plugin. To activate the plugin you need an Apple developer account and a pass type identifier with a valid certificate. This is required so we can sign and send updates to passes automatically.


Once the Apple Wallet plugin is enabled users will be able to export their subscriptions as a pkpass file to import it into their Apple Wallet. Subscription passes will be updated automatically on every device as soon as a subscription changes in Unidy. If users do not use their Wallet or do not have a device compatible with pkpass files we offer the possibility to download the subscription as PDF.

Make a subscription exportable

Subscriptions are managed through our API. To make a subscription exportable as pkpass file you need to fill out wallet_export data.

Subscription payload

  "wallet_export": {
    "qr_code": "abcd1235",
    "further_information": "Your terms of use and privacy",
    "additional_attributes": []

The qr_code attribute is mandatory and cannot be blank. It will be shown as a QR-Code with it's value below. It can contain up to 1024 characters. If you like to add more information to your pass you can add additional_attributes. You can add up to four attributes. When additional_attributes are used you are required to add the data for these attributes in metadata. Adding attributes without metadata will cause an error.


Every additional attribute must be included in metadata with a label and value.
For additional attributes only the characters a-z0-9_ are allowed.

To show more information on the back of the pass you can use the further_information attribute. This attribute is optional and can be left blank. You might choose to add your terms and conditions here.
