How the Check-in API works

To get an impression of how the check-in functionality looks and feels, check out the member flow in the demo shop.

Step 1: Scan the QR code

The flow begins with the customer presenting their personal Vipps QR code to the merchant. This can happen two ways:

  • Customer-facing scanner. The store will have a permanent customer-facing scanner and customers can scan their QR code at any time.
  • The QR code is scanned by the cashier using a wired scanner. This could happen while the cashier is scanning wares or right before the payment.

Exchange the customer's personal QR code for their phone number by using the personal QR exchange endpoint.

Step 2: Check membership

The customer's membership status is checked by using the mobile number received in the last step.

A Check-in API request is triggered to inform the customer whether or not they are a member of your loyalty program. This will help them through the payment process.
