Payment Request

How to create payments when using our Checkout.

Edit "Payment Request" on GitHub

The integration consists of three main steps. Creating the payment order, displaying the payment menu, and capturing the funds. In addition, there are other post-purchase options you need. We get to them later on.

Create Payment Order

When your customer has initiated a purchase, you need to create a payment order.

Start by performing a POST request towards the paymentorder resource with payer information and a completeUrl.

We have added productName to the payment order request in this integration. You can find it in the paymentorder field. This is no longer required, but is still an option to use v3.0 of Digital Payments. To use productName, simply put Checkout3 as the value in that field in the request. You can also specify version by adding it in the header instead. If you use this option, you can leave out the productName field.

POST, PATCH and PUT requests use this header:

Content-Type: application/json;version=3.0

GET requests use this header:

Accept: application/json;version=3.0

When productName is set to checkout3, digitalProducts will be set to false by default.

Supported features for this integration are subscriptions (recur, one-click and unscheduled MIT), MOTO, instrument mode, split settlement (subsite) and the possibility to use your own logo.

There is also a guest mode option for the payers who don’t wish to store their information. The way to trigger this is to not include the payerReference field in your paymentOrder request. If the payer field is included in your request, you can find the payerReference there.

Sometimes you might need to abort purchases. An example could be if a payer does not complete the purchase within a reasonable timeframe. For those instances we have abort, which you can read about in the core features. You can only use abort if the payer has not completed an authorize or a sale. If the payer is performing an action at a 3rd party, like the MobilePay, Swish or Vipps apps, abort is unavailable.

info

To minimize the risk for a challenge request (Strong Customer Authentication – “SCA”) on card payments, it’s recommended that you add as much data as possible to the riskIndicator object in the request below.

warning

GDPR: GDPR sensitive data such as email, phone numbers and social security numbers must not be used directly in request fields such as payerReference. If it is necessary to use GDPR sensitive data, it must be hashed and then the hash can be used in requests towards Swedbank Pay.

check paymentOrder object The payment order object.
check operation string Determines the initial operation, defining the type of payment order created.
check currency string The currency of the payment.
check amount integer The transaction amount (including VAT, if any) entered in the lowest monetary unit of the selected currency. E.g.: 10000 = 100.00 SEK, 5000 = 50.00 SEK. The amount displayed is the final amount the payer paid for their order, including any method specific discounts or fees.
check vatAmount integer The payment’s VAT (Value Added Tax) amount, entered in the lowest monetary unit of the selected currency. E.g.: 10000 = 100.00 SEK, 5000 = 50.00 SEK. The vatAmount entered will not affect the amount shown on the payment page, which only shows the total amount. This field is used to specify how much of the total amount the VAT will be. Set to 0 (zero) if there is no VAT amount charged.
check description string The description of the payment order.
check userAgent string The user agent of the payer. Should typically be set to the value of the User-Agent header sent by the payer’s web browser.
check language string The language of the payer.
check productName string Used to tag the payment as Digital Payments v3.0. Mandatory for Digital Payments v3.0, either in this field or the header, as you won’t get the operations in the response without submitting this field.
  implementation string Indicates which implementation to use.
check urls object The urls object, containing the URLs relevant for the payment order.
check hostUrls array The array of URLs valid for embedding of Swedbank Pay Seamless Views.
  paymentUrl string The paymentUrl represents the URL that Swedbank Pay will redirect back to when the view-operation needs to be loaded, to inspect and act on the current status of the payment, such as when the payer is redirected out of the Seamless View (the <iframe>) and sent back after completing the payment. paymentUrl is only used in Seamless Views and should point to the page of where the Payment Order Seamless View is hosted. If both cancelUrl and paymentUrl is sent, the paymentUrl will used. Trustly will only be available if the paymentUrl is provided while using Seamless View. With Redirect Trustly will appear regardless.
check completeUrl string The URL that Swedbank Pay will redirect back to when the payer has completed their interactions with the payment. This does not indicate a successful payment, only that it has reached a final (complete) state. A GET request needs to be performed on the payment order to inspect it further. See completeUrl for details.
check cancelUrl string The URL to redirect the payer to if the payment is cancelled, either by the payer or by the merchant trough an abort request of the payment or paymentorder.
check callbackUrl string The URL that Swedbank Pay will perform an HTTP POST against every time a transaction is created on the payment order. See callback for details.
  logoUrl string With permission and activation on your contract, sending in a logoUrl will replace the Swedbank Pay logo with the logo sent in. If you do not send in a logoUrl, then no logo and no text is shown. Without permission or activation on your contract, sending in a logoUrl has no effect. The logo must be a picture with maximum 50px height and 400px width. Requires HTTPS. Read more about this in Custom Logo .
check orderItems array The array of items being purchased with the order. Note that authorization orderItems will not be printed on invoices, so lines meant for print must be added in the Capture request. The authorization orderItems will, however, be used in the Merchant Portal when captures or reversals are performed, and might be shown other places later. It is required to use this field to be able to send Capture orderItems. Capture requests should only contain items meant to be captured from the order.
check reference string A reference that identifies the order item.
check name string The name of the order item.
check type enum PRODUCT, SERVICE, SHIPPING_FEE, DISCOUNT, VALUE_CODE, or OTHER. The type of the order item.

  itemUrl string The URL to a page that can display the purchased item, such as a product page
  imageUrl string The URL to an image of the order item.
  description string The human readable description of the order item.
  discountDescription string The human readable description of the possible discount.
check quantity number The 4 decimal precision quantity of order items being purchased.
check quantityUnit string The unit of the quantity, such as pcs, grams, or similar.
check unitPrice integer The price per unit of order item, including VAT.
  discountPrice integer If the order item is purchased at a discounted price. This field should contain that price, including VAT.
check vatPercent integer The percent value of the VAT multiplied by 100, so 25% becomes 2500.

check vatAmount integer The payment’s VAT (Value Added Tax) amount, entered in the lowest monetary unit of the selected currency. E.g.: 10000 = 100.00 SEK, 5000 = 50.00 SEK. The vatAmount entered will not affect the amount shown on the payment page, which only shows the total amount. This field is used to specify how much of the total amount the VAT will be. Set to 0 (zero) if there is no VAT amount charged.
check payeeInfo object The payeeInfo object, containing information about the payee (the recipient of the money). See payeeInfo for details.
check payeeId string The ID of the payee, usually the merchant ID.
check payeeReference string A unique reference from the merchant system. Set per operation to ensure an exactly-once delivery of a transactional operation. Length and content validation depends on whether the transaction.number or the payeeReference is sent to the acquirer. If Swedbank Pay handles the settlement, the transaction.number is sent and the payeeReference must be in the format of A-Za-z0-9 and string(30). If you handle the settlement, Swedbank Pay will send the payeeReference and it will be limited to the format of string(12). All characters must be digits. In Invoice Payments payeeReference is used as an invoice/receipt number, if the receiptReference is not defined.
  payeeName string The name of the payee, usually the name of the merchant.
  orderReference string(50) The order reference should reflect the order reference found in the merchant’s systems.
