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 - Configure the integration method".

After making sure of configuring this SDK as you wish, you will need to import the PaymentSDK in your code first to start, as shown below: 

import com.payment.paymentsdk.PaymentSdkActivity.Companion.startCardPayment 
import com.payment.paymentsdk.PaymentSdkConfigBuilder 
import com.payment.paymentsdk.integrationmodels.* 
import com.payment.paymentsdk.sharedclasses.interfaces.CallbackPaymentInterface 

Implementing this option will enable you to initiate payments targeted to be paid using the supported types of credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Amex, .. etc. Furthermore, your SDK will save the card on your behalf to show it in a list of saved cards for any further payments. To be able to do this, please follow the below instructions:

  1. Make sure your current Activity or Fragment extends CallbackPaymentInterface class.

  2. 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 Android SDK | Manage Shipping and Billing details and 2.1 Native Android SDK | Configuration Options & Parameters solution articles.

    val billingData = PaymentSdkBillingDetails( 
            "[email protected]", 
            "name ", 
            "phone", "state", 
            "address street", "zip" 
        val shippingData = PaymentSdkShippingDetails( 
            "2 digit iso Country code", 
            "[email protected]", 
            "name ", 
            "phone", "state", 
            "address street", "zip" 

  3. Then create an object from PaymentSdkConfigBuilder and 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 Native Android SDK | Configuration Options & Parameters and 2.2 Native Android SDK | The PaymentSdkConfigBuilder Object solution articles.
    val configData = PaymentSdkConfigBuilder(profileId, serverKey, clientKey, amount ?: 0.0, currency) 
            .setMerchantCountryCode("AE") // ISO alpha 2 

  4. Only then you will be ready to start/initiate the payment with the previously saved card by passing your PaymentSdkConfigBuilder object along with the current CallbackPaymentInterface inherited activity/fragment instance -in which you will handle the payment response- to the startPaymentWithSavedCards function. To know more about this please check our 2.2 Native Android SDK | The PaymentSdkConfigBuilder Object and Step 5 - Native Android SDK | Handle the payment response solution articles.
    startPaymentWithSavedCards(context = this, 
                    ptConfigData = configData,
                    support3DS = true,
                    callback = this)

    Only cards that has been saved through this startPaymentWithSavedCards function will be shown in the list.

    This would make the payment behavior like the one below, in which once your customers choose one of the saved cards, the payment will be performed directly if the support3DS was with false or will be directed to the 3DS phase if it was true.
