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 in your code first to start, as shown below:
import com.payment.paymentsdk.PaymentSdkActivity.Companion.startAlternativePaymentMethods 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 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:
- Make sure your current Activity or Fragment extends class.
- 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.
Then create an object from
PaymentSdkConfigBuilderand 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) .setCartDescription(cartDesc) .setLanguageCode(locale) .setBillingData(billingData) .setMerchantCountryCode("AE") // ISO alpha 2 .setShippingData(shippingData) .setCartId("123") .setTransactionType(transType) .showBillingInfo(false) .showShippingInfo(true) .forceShippingInfo(true) .setScreenTitle(screenTitle) .build();
Only then you will be ready to start/initiate the payment by passing your PaymentSdkConfigBuilder object along with the current inherited activity/fragment instance -in which you will handle the payment response- to the
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.
startAlternativePaymentMethods(context = this, ptConfigData = configData, callback=this)
