Quick start

Vipps Only available for Vipps. All new integrations use the ePayment API.

Before you begin​

Important: We strongly recommend that you use the newer ePayment API instead.

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. Note that any currency amount must be an Integer value minimum 100 in ΓΈre.

Your first Payment​

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 sales unit.
  • merchantSerialNumber - The unique ID for a sales unit.

See How to find the API keys.

You will also need:

  • mobileNumber - The phone number for your test user.

No additional setup needed :)

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 'https://apitest.vipps.no/accesstoken/get' \
-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.

note

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 - A simple payment​

Initiate a payment with: POST:/ecomm/v2/payments. When your test mobile number is provided in phoneNumber, it will be prefilled in the form.

curl -X POST 'https://apitest.vipps.no/ecomm/v2/payments/' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR-ACCESS-TOKEN" \
-H "Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key: 0f14ebcab0ec4b29ae0cb90d91b4a84a" \
-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 '{
"customerInfo": {
"mobileNumber": "91234567"
},
"merchantInfo": {
"merchantSerialNumber": "123456",
"callbackPrefix":"https://example.com/vipps/callbacks-for-payment-update-from-vipps",
"fallBack": "https://example.com/vipps/fallback-result-page-for-both-success-and-failure/acme-shop-123-order123abc",
},
"transaction": {
"amount": 49900,
"orderId": "UNIQUE-PAYMENT-REFERENCE",
"transactionText": "One pair of socks.",
}
}'

Note that orderId must be unique for each payment you create.

Step 4 - Completing the payment​

Ctrl+click (Command-click on macOS) on the link that appears, and it will take you to the landing page. The phone number of your test user should already be filled in, so you only have to click Next. You will be presented with the payment in the app, where you can complete or reject the payment. Once you have acted upon the payment, you will be redirected back to the specified fallBack URL under a "best effort" policy.

note

We cannot guarantee the user will be redirected back to the same browser or session, or that they will at all be redirected back. User interaction can be unpredictable, and the user may choose to fully close the app or browser.

Step 5 - Getting the status of the payment​

To receive the result of the user action you may poll the status of the payment via the GET:/ecomm/v2/payments/{orderId}/details.

curl -X GET https://apitest.vipps.no/ecomm/v2/payments/UNIQUE-PAYMENT-REFERENCE/details \
-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" \

Step 6 - Capture the payment​

After the goods or services have been delivered, you can capture the authorized amount either partially or fully: POST:/ecomm/v2/payments/{orderId}/capture.

curl -X POST https://apitest.vipps.no/ecomm/v2/payments/UNIQUE-PAYMENT-REFERENCE/capture \
-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 "X-Request-Id: YOUR-IDEMPOTENCY-KEY" \
-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 '{
"merchantInfo": {
"merchantSerialNumber": "123456"
},
"transaction": {
"transactionText": "This transaction was captured."
}
}'

See Knowledge base: Capture for more details.
