4. Confirmation of subscription

The user is redirected back to the merchant’s website or app, and the subscription is confirmed on the merchant’s page.

Please note: Activation of the agreement is not guaranteed to be finished by the time the user is redirected back to the merchantRedirectUrl. The agreement could still have the status PENDING, so it is important to continue to poll the status of the agreement until a final status is returned by the API or use webhooks.

We recommend using the Login API to make login to the merchant’s site go smoothly. The manage agreement URL is mandatory for Norwegian merchants and optional for Finish and Danish merchants.

7. Stop agreement

Danish and Finish users can stop the agreement in the app. Make sure you have webhooks implemented to listen for this event.
