Quick start

Before you begin

The provided example values in this guide must be changed with the values for your sales unit and user. This applies for API keys, HTTP headers, reference, phone number, etc.

Your first check-in notification

Be aware that these are running on the production server,

Step 1 - Setup

You must have already signed up as an organization with Vipps MobilePay and have your test credentials from the merchant portal. See Getting started guide for help.

Get these API key values for your sales unit:

  • client_id - Client_id for a test sales unit.
  • client_secret - Client_id for a test sales unit.
  • Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key - The subscription key for a test sales unit.
  • Merchant-Serial-Number - The unique ID for a test sales unit.

See How to find the API keys.

You will also need:

  • internationalMobileNumber - The MSISDN for your test user.

Step 2 - Authentication

For all the following, you will need an access_token from the Access token API: POST:/accesstoken/get. This provides you with access to the API.

curl -X POST '' \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H 'client_id: YOUR-CLIENT-ID' \
-H 'client_secret: YOUR-CLIENT-SECRET' \
-H 'Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key: YOUR-SUBSCRIPTION-KEY' \
-H 'Merchant-Serial-Number: YOUR-MSN' \
-H 'Vipps-System-Name: acme' \
-H 'Vipps-System-Version: 3.1.2' \
-H 'Vipps-System-Plugin-Name: acme-webshop' \
-H 'Vipps-System-Plugin-Version: 4.5.6' \
--data ''

Replace the value of the Vipps-System headers with your own values. See HTTP headers for more details.


When a partner uses partner keys for requests that are not for a specific merchant, the Merchant-Serial-Number can be omitted.

The property access_token should be used for all other API requests in the Authorization header as the Bearer token.

Step 3 - Open your Vipps app

Open your Vipps app to be able to see the notification.

Step 4 - Your Check-in notification

Initiate a notification with: POST:/point-of-sale/v1/loyalty-check-in. When your mobile number is provided in phoneNumber, it will be prefilled in the form.

curl -X POST '' \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR-ACCESS-TOKEN" \
-H "Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key: YOUR-SUBSCRIPTION-KEY" \
-H "Merchant-Serial-Number: YOUR-MSN" \
-H "Vipps-System-Name: acme" \
-H "Vipps-System-Version: 3.1.2" \
-H "Vipps-System-Plugin-Name: acme-webshop" \
-H "Vipps-System-Plugin-Version: 4.5.6" \
-d '{
"phoneNumber": 4712345678,
"isMember": true

The check-in screen should show.

Please note: If you use "isMember": false, nothing will happen. This is the expected behavior.
