This plugin enables the use of the Braintree Drop-In Payments UI in your Ionic applications on Android and iOS, using the native Drop-In UI for each platform (not the Javascript SDK).

Ionic Native utilizes a maintained fork of the original cordova-plugin-braintree

For information on how to use Apple Pay with this plugin, please refer to the plugin documentation

NOTE: This is not a complete payments solution. All of the Braintree client-side UIs simply generate a payment nonce that must then be processed by your server to complete the payment. See the Braintree Node server documentation for details and a sample Express server that implements the required functionality.
