GitHub Actions Tests

Welcome to Braintree's iOS SDK. This library will help you accept card and alternative payments in your iOS app.

v6 is the latest major version of Braintree iOS. To update from v5, see the v6 migration guide. If you have not yet migrated to v5, see the v5 migration guide

The Braintree iOS SDK permits a deployment target of iOS 14.0 or higher. It requires Xcode 14.3+ and Swift 5.8+.

Supported Payment Methods


We recommend using Swift Package Manager, CocoaPods, or Carthage to integrate the Braintree SDK with your project.

Swift Package Manager

This feature is only available in v5+.

To add the Braintree package to your Xcode project, select File > Swift Packages > Add Package Dependency and enter as the repository URL. Tick the checkboxes for the specific Braintree libraries you wish to include.

If you look at your app target, you will see that the Braintree libraries you chose are automatically linked as a frameworks to your app (see General > Frameworks, Libraries, and Embedded Content).

BraintreePayPal and BraintreePaymentFlow also require the inclusion of the PayPalDataCollector module.

In your app's source code files, use the following import syntax to include Braintree's libraries:

import BraintreeCore
import BraintreeCard
import BraintreeApplePay
import BraintreePayPal


# Includes Cards and PayPal
pod 'Braintree'

# Optionally include additional Pods
pod 'Braintree/DataCollector'
pod 'Braintree/Venmo'


Braintree 6.0.0+ requires Carthage 0.38.0+ and the --use-xcframeworks option when running carthage update.

Add github "braintree/braintree_ios" to your Cartfile, and add the frameworks to your project.

Note: Long term support for Carthage is not guaranteed. Please update to SPM, if possible. If there are concerns, please comment on this Discussion thread.


Start with 'Hello, Client!' for instructions on basic setup and usage.

Next, read the full documentation for information about integrating with additional payment methods, such as PayPal and Venmo, as well as explore our pre-built Drop-In UI offering.
