  3. This video shows you how to use Passbook in Apple's latest Operating system.
    We introduce the first 3 steps of the PassKit Pass Lifecycle Process.

    Step 1. Design and create the Pass using the Pass Designer: create.passkit.com

    This is quick, easy and intuitive with the Pass Designer. You'll see exactly how the Pass will look in Passbook as you make your way through the design process. You can select a Pass Type, choose your colours, upload images and make the Pass perfect for you and your customers.
Make sure you save the Pass. You'll then see a Pass Link, an Edit Pass Link and a QR Code you can use for distribution.

    Step 2. Distribute the Pass.
    
Because it's a URL delivered from the PassKit server you can distribute this anyway you like.
    
- You can send it in an email
    
- You can have it appear on a webpage (perhaps following a ticket purchase online)
    
- You can deliver it from within an app
    
- Or you can even allow people to scan a QR Code. As an example you could 'print the QR code' in a newspaper ad or in a poster next to your cash register, and then people can get a Pass in Passbook even from 'print'. Much better than cutting out a coupon in the newspaper, hey?

    

Basically you can distribute the Pass anyway you like as long as you can provide your customers/users with the URL link that they can access via the smartphone.

    3. Add to Device.

    This is the bit that your customers (users) will do.
    
If you have designed a Pass with all static fields, your customers will be presented with the Pass straight away that can be added to Passbook.
    
If you chose any dynamic fields (maybe like name, or preference, as is the case in this video) the user will be prompted for their information and then to click 'Create Pass' (with the option of providing a rescue email if they want the added security).

    They can then click 'Add' for it to be sent to Passbook

    If you are a consumer you may not be interested in Step 1 and 2 and just want to Add Passes (and not design or create) but hopefully this video gives you a feel for how easy it is to create Passbook Passes. If you want your favourite merchant to issue Passbook Passes, simply put them in touch with us at Passkit.com and we'd be delighted to get them started.

    Likewise, think about other things that you'd like to get out of your wallet and into Passbook. Give the Pass Designer a go - it's free and fun to use. Be creative and let us know what you think.

  4. This video guides you through how to get an Apple Developer Account for use with PassKit.

    It's the first part of a 2 part series.

    If you already have an Apple Developer Account you can skip this tutorial and move straight through to Part 2:- Generating your Pass Certificate and uploading it to PassKit. vimeo.com/passkit/upload-pass-certificate-to-passkit

    You can then start creating your own Passbook Passes.

    If you don't have an Apple Developer Account follow this video and wait until you have an Apple Developer Account before following Part 2.

    If you prefer to get an Apple Developer Account for your organisation - which will allow you to add more users from your organisation - then follow the same process and simply enrol as a company. You will need to provide your Business Address and D-U-N-S number and it may take a little longer than an individual application.

  5. This video tutorial shows you how to easily generate and add your own Passbook Pass Certificate to PassKit

    Step 1: Generate your Certificate Signing Request (CSR) in the Pass Designer

    - Log in to create.passkit.com and generate a CSR containing your account details through the 'Certificates' tab of your 'My Account' page.
    - Click "Yes! Let's Do This" and a CSR file should start to download.

    Step 2: Use your CSR to generate your certificate in the Apple Provisioning Portal

    - Log in to your Apple Developer account and select the iOS Developer portal. If you do not see this option when you log in to your Developer account, you may need to check that you have joined the iOS Developer Program and have activated your membership.
    - Create a new Pass Type ID. Your description should be something meaningful that will help you identify the certificate.
    Identifiers are conventionally give in reverse domain format to ensure uniqueness. A certificate named greatstorecard for example.com would have an identifier of pass.com.example.greatsotrecard. However, your identifier can be anything, providing the first five characters are pass. and it is unique.
    - Configure your new Pass Type ID and upload the CSR that you generated in Step 1. Click configure, and configure again.
    - Since you have already generated a CSR, you can click continue to go to the next step.
    - Choose the CSR file that you downloaded in Step 1 and click Submit
    - Generate and download your certificate. Once you submit your CSR, your certificate will automatically start to generate. Once it is done, you can download it.

    You should now have a certificate file called pass.cer in your downloads folder.

    Step 3: Upload your certificate to PassKit

    - Upload your certificate to PassKit. Click the button to select your certificate (the pass.cer file generated in Step 5). It will automatically start uploading to PassKit.
    - Logout of your account to activate your certificate. When you return to the certificates page, you should see your certificate listed.

    When you return to the Pass Designer, you should also see your certificate in the Pass Certificate dropdown.

    Note: The certificate that you generate will be exclusively for use with the PassKit service. If you want to independently produce and sign your own passes, you will need to generate an another certificate, using your own CSR, through the Apple Developer portal.

    To be able to complete the above steps you will need:
    1. An Apple Developer Account vimeo.com/passkit/how-to-get-an-apple-developer-account
    2. A PassKit Account (visit create.passkit.com and click Login in the Top Right corner to register)

    IMPORTANT NOTE: IT IS AN APPLE REQUIREMENT THAT ALL COMMERCIALLY ISSUED PASSBOOK PASSES ARE SIGNED WITH YOUR OWN CERTIFICATE (IE THE ONE YOU HAVE JUST UPLOADED IF YOUR FOLLOWED THESE INSTRUCTIONS).

    BY USING PASSKIT SERVICE AND AGREEING TO THE PASSKIT TERMS AND CONDITIONS YOU ARE PERMITTED TO USE OUR PASSKIT CERTIFICATE FOR PRIVATE, TESTING AND EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY.
