2. Select Identifiers from the menu on the left, and then specify the identifier as Pass Type IDs.
3. Fill in the Pass Type ID Description field and give your ID a unique identifier.
4. Verify your name and identifier then register your Pass Type ID.
5. Select Select Certificate on your newly made iOS Pass Type ID.
6. Follow the steps outlined in this article: Create a certificate signing request, then upload the certificate by selecting Choose File.
7. Download your new certificate. Double click to add this certificate to your Keychain. Right-click your certificate inside Keychain Access to export to a .p12 file.
8. Add a password to your certificate. You will need to remember this password when you upload the .p12 file to the Wallet Dashboard.
