Merchant portal updates

We have updated the merchant portal (portal.vipps.no). From 23 January 2024, it has a new address: https://portal.vippsmobilepay.com.

The old link will redirect to the new location for some time.

Report API available now

The Report API is primarily for accounting partners who will use the API to integrate with their accounting systems, allowing them to provide the accounting information to their merchants.

Merchants simply give access to the accounting partner on portal.vippsmobilepay.com without doing any development themselves. Accounting partners use their accounting keys to retrieve data for all merchants that have selected them as their accounting partner.

Please note: The SFTP service is deprecated and will stop working on 1 March 2024.

Checkout is ready for integration in Finland

Vipps MobilePay Checkout is a complete payment solution with MobilePay, VISA, and MasterCard which includes customer info retrieval and shipping selection

Please note: It is not possible to start accepting payments until after the Vipps MobilePay joint platform launch.

New SDK is available

We are working a new Vipps MobilePay SDK for use in Deno, Node, and other JavaScript runtimes. This beta version provides access to authorization, handling checkout sessions, ePayments, recurring payments, callback QRs, redirect QRs, login, and webhooks.

See the SDKs section for details.

Status pages are moving

We have updated the Vipps operational status pages:

Documentation updates

Here are some highlights from developer documentation:

  • We've merged the Common topics and FAQs into a new Knowledge base section, where you can more easily find your topics, and once there, find everything you need to know.
  • The MobilePay migration guides are continually improving.
  • We've rewritten the SDK documentation and restructured it into one page.
  • There's a new global changelog where we can begin to record changes to the infrastructure (e.g., changes to the app, landing page, status pages, merchant portal, etc.).
  • The front page and sidebars are updated to improve usability.
  • The pages now have a small feedback form at the bottom. Please let us know what's good and what needs improvements.

Feedback form example

In addition, we've restructured our documentation. We previously had several public GitHub repositories (e.g., one for each API, SDK, and major section). Now, all of these have been merged into one place.

For those of you who generate code from the OpenAPI specs in GitHub, you can still find these files in the old repositories for: ePayment API, Order Management API, and QR API.
