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 QR code

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 - Subscription key for a test sales unit.
  • merchantSerialNumber - The unique ID for a test sales unit.

See How to find the API keys.

You will also need this for the eCom API requests:

  • MobileNumber - The phone number for the test app profile you have received or registered. This is your test mobile number without country code.

No additional setup needed :)

Step 2 - Authentication

Get an access_token from the Access token API: POST:/accesstoken/get.

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.

Merchant Redirect QR

A merchant redirect QR contains a link to your webshop. When the user scans this with their phone, your website will open.

Vipps demo QR

Generate a merchant redirect QR with: POST:/qr/v1/merchant-redirect.

curl -X POST https://apitest.vipps.no/qr/v1/merchant-redirect \
-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 'Idempotency-Key: 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 '{
"redirectUrl": "https://example.com/mywebshop",
"id": "UNIQUE-QR-ID"
}'

Enter the returned link into a browser. It will show the QR code. Scanning the QR should open the specified URL on your phone.

The result from this request provides a URL with its own JWT token, which will expire. Get a new token by calling GET:/qr/v1/merchant-redirect/{qr-id}.

Relevant examples:

One-time payment QR

A one-time payment QR (also called dynamic QR) is connected to a payment. When the user scans this QR with their phone, the Vipps app will open and present them with the payment request.

If you are using the ePayment API in your solution, you do not need to use the QR API. See Dynamic QR directing to the app for payment for an example.

Legacy method for eCom API

Create a payment and get the unique payment reference.

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: YOUR-SUBSCRIPTION-KEY" \
-H "Merchant-Serial-Number: YOUR-MSN" \
-H 'Idempotency-Key: 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 '{
"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.

Take note of the URL that is returned in the response body and provide it in the POST:/qr/v1 request to generate the one-time payment QR.

curl -X POST 'https://apitest.vipps.no/qr/v1' \
-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 '{
"url": "https://apitest.vipps.no/dwo-api-application/v1/deeplink/vippsgateway?v=2&token=eyJraWQiOiJqd3RrZXkiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiJ<truncated>"
}'
