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 PayTab Flutter SDK in your code first to start, as shown below:


import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/BaseBillingShippingInfo.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/PaymentSdkLocale.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/PaymentSdkTokenFormat.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/PaymentSdkTokeniseType.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/flutter_paytabs_bridge.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/IOSThemeConfiguration.dart';
import 'package:flutter_paytabs_bridge/PaymentSdkTransactionClass.dart';

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, UnionPay, and Meeza, to serve a large sector of customers. To be able to do this, please follow the below instructions:

  1. Make sure you import PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails 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 Flutter SDK | Manage Shipping and Billing details and 2.1 Flutter SDK | Configuration Options & Parameters solution article. 
    var billingDetails = new BillingDetails(
        "billing name", 
        "billing email", 
        "billing phone",
            "address line", 
            "zip code"
    var shippingDetails = new ShippingDetails(
        "shipping name", 
         "shipping email", 
         "shipping phone",
         "address line", 
         "zip code"

  3. Then create an object from PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails and fill it out with your credentials and payment details also you need to pass the "alternativePaymentMethods" parameter list. To know more about what is the exact values that should be passed here, please check our 2.1 Flutter SDK | Configuration Options & Parameters and 2.2 Flutter SDK | The PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails Object solution articles,  Also for all available alternative payment methods please check 2.3 Flutter SDK | Enums solution articles.

    List<PaymentSdkAPms> apms = [];
    var configuration = PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails(
            profileId: "profile id",
            serverKey: "your server key",
            clientKey: "your client key",
            cartId: "cart id",
            cartDescription: "cart desc",
            merchantName: "merchant name",
            screentTitle: "Pay with Card",
            billingDetails: billingDetails,
            shippingDetails: shippingDetails,
            locale: PaymentSdkLocale.EN, //PaymentSdkLocale.AR or PaymentSdkLocale.DEFAULT 
            amount: "amount in double",
            currencyCode: "Currency code",
            merchantCountryCode: "2 chars iso country code",
            alternativePaymentMethods: apms

  4. Only then you will be ready to start/initiate the payment by passing your PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails to the startAlternativePaymentMethod function in which the callback event and the setState method will handle/alter the payment response. To know more about this please check our 2.2 Flutter SDK | The PaymentSdkConfigurationDetails Object and Step 5 - Flutter SDK | Handle the payment response solution articles.

    FlutterPaytabsBridge.startAlternativePaymentMethod(await generateConfig(), (event) {
          setState(() {
            if (event["status"] == "success") {
              // Handle transaction details here.
              var transactionDetails = event["data"];
            } else if (event["status"] == "error") {
              // Handle error here.
            } else if (event["status"] == "event") {
              // Handle events here.
