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 initiate the payment/request payload using the configuration options and parameters that have already been clarified in the previous step, " Step 2 - Native IOS SDK | Configure the integration method".
After making sure of the "Prerequisites" for this SDK, you will need to import the PaymentSDK in your code first to start, as shown below:
Implementing this option will enable you to initiate payments targeted to be paid using other payment methods that are available in your regions, like STCPay, OmanNet, KNet, Valu, Fawry, UnionPay, and Meeza, to serve a large sector of customers. To be able to do this, please follow the below instructions:
- Configure the billing & shipping information for this payment, noting that the shipping information is optional. To know more about this, please check our 3.1 Native IOS SDK | Manage Shipping and Billing details and 2.1.1 Native IOS SDK | Configuration Options & Parameters solution articles.
let billingDetails = PaymentSDKBillingDetails(name: "John Smith", email: "[email protected]", phone: "+2011111111", addressLine: "address", city: "Dubai", state: "Dubai", countryCode: "ae", // ISO alpha 2 zip: "12345") let shippingDetails = PaymentSDKShippingDetails(name: "John Smith", email: "[email protected]", phone: "+2011111111", addressLine: "address", city: "Dubai", state: "Dubai", countryCode: "ae", // ISO alpha 2 zip: "12345")
- Then create an object from
PaymentSDKConfigurationand fill it out with your credentials and payment details. To know more about what is the exact values that should be passed here, please check our 2.1.1 Native IOS SDK | Configuration Options & Parameters solution article.
let configuration = PaymentSDKConfiguration(profileID: profileID, serverKey: serverKey, clientKey: clientKey, currency: "AED", amount: 5.0, merchantCountryCode: "AE") .cartDescription("Flowers") .cartID("1234") .screenTitle("Pay with Card") .billingDetails(billingDetails)
- Then choose one or more of the payment methods you want to support in this payment for the customer.
configuration.alternativePaymentMethods = [.stcPay]
- Only then you will be ready to start/initiate the payment by passing your PaymentSDKConfiguration object along with the
function. To know more about this please check our 2.2 Native IOS SDK | The PaymentSDKConfiguration Object, 2.1.2 Native IOS SDK | Delegates, and Step 5 - Native IOS SDK | Handle the payment response solution articles.
