The Endpoint and Related Postman Collection

In this tutorial, we will rely on the PayTabs Hosted Payment Page API Endpoint, mentioned on PayTabs API endpoints postman collection, which you can access from hereThe endpoint will need to be accessed with a POST request on the below-mentioned URL


Please note that not using the proper endpoint URI {{domain}} will lead to authentication issues within your responses. To find the your proper domain you can read our What Is My (Region)/(endpoint URL)? solution article.

Using Managed Form. your website will display its own card entry form. However, key fields will be managed by the PayTabs gateway. You will need to include a script that replaces the sensitive card data with a payment token. Hence, there are two main parts to initiating the payment:

  1. From "The Frontend Side" (using JS), the front end from your side will send a request to Paytabs with the card details, and Paytabs will respond with the payment token.

  2. From "The Backend Side", the backend from your side will send the payment request to Paytabs with all needed payment details, and Paytabs will respond with the transaction result.
