PayTabs SDK makes the integration with the PayTabs payment gateway very easy by providing a ready-made payment screen that handles the card entry, and billing & shipping information and completes the missing details.

This article is dedicated to walking you through how to manage Enums in this SDK.

An enumeration defines a common type for a group of related values and enables you to work with those values in a type-safe way within your code. 

Hence, here are the predefined enums by PayTabs that will help you in customizing your configuration as shown below:

Tokenise types

This option is used only when you want to tokenize the transaction for any further recurring transactions. This indicates whether the tokenization is optional or mandatory or if no tokenization will be done at all.

This field is required for creating tokenized (recurring) transactions. 

The default type is none

public enum TokeniseType: Int, Codable {
    case none // tokenise is off
    case merchantMandatory // tokenise is forced
    case userMandatory // tokenise is forced as per user approval
    case userOptinoal // tokenise if optional as per user approval

You can pass/use it as shown below:

configuration.tokeniseType = .sale

Token Formats

This option indicates the type of tokenization used. This field is required for creating tokenized (recurring) transactions. 

The default format is hex32.

public enum TokenFormat: String {
    case none = "1"
    case hex32 = "2"
    case alphaNum20 = "3"
    case digit22 = "4"
    case digit16 = "5"
    case alphaNum32 = "6"

You can pass/use it as shown below:

configuration.tokenFormat = .sale

Transaction Type

This option is the identification of the type of transactionTo know more about these types please check our What is the "tran_type" (transaction type)? solution article.

- This is a required configuration parameter to perform any transaction.
- Only "Sale" and "Auth" types are supported in this SDK.
- The default type is "Sale".

public enum TransactionType: String, CaseIterable {
    case sale
    case authorize = "auth"

You can pass/use it as shown below:

configuration.transactionType = .sale

Alternative Payment Methods

Used to add another payment method in the payment form screen (such as valu, StcPay, OmanNet, .. etc) or not. 

public enum AlternativePaymentMethod: String {
    case unionPay = "unionpay"
    case stcPay = "stcpay"
    case valu
    case meezaQR = "meezaqr"
    case omannet
    case knetCredit  = "knetcredit"
    case knetDebit  = "knetdebit"

You can pass/use it as shown below:

configuration.alternativePaymentMethod= .meezaQR
