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 only the customer name and email in case your products/services are not physical and didn't need to be shipped to the customers, along with the configuration options and parameters that have already been clarified in the previous step,  " Step 2 - Native IOS SDK | Configure the integration method".

This feature is subject to further approval from our risk team, so please make sure to contact us at ([email protected]) for further details to enable this feature for you.

In case your products/services is indeed physical and yet you want to hide those details, you can check out "3.1 Native IOS SDK | Manage Shipping and Billing details" solution article to know how to perform this.

Note that CyberSource processor does not support digital product mode.

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:

import PaymentSDK

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. To be able to do this, please follow the below instructions:

  1. Configure the billing information and assign the customer name and email.  in this case, you didn't need to set the shipping information for this payment. 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.
    //In this case you don't need to provide all billing parameters just skip them and provide only the customer email and email with parameters names as shown below
    //Also you may send the full billing details 
    let billingDetails = PaymentSDKBillingDetails(
         name: "John Smith",
         email: "[email protected]",

  2. Then create an object from PaymentSDKConfigurationand  and fill it out with your credentials, payment details don't forget to set the Digital product to true. . 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 and 2.2 Native IOS SDK | The PaymentSDKConfiguration Object solution articles. 

    let configuration = PaymentSDKConfiguration(profileID: profileID,
                                           serverKey: serverKey,
                                           clientKey: clientKey,
                                           currency: "AED",
                                           amount: 5.0,
                                           merchantCountryCode: "AE")
                .screenTitle("Pay with Card")

    Setting the isDigitalProduct to ture can affect the behavior of the payment based on the following:
    - Along with showBilling to false and passing  the full billing details object the transactions will be authorized.
    - With the showBilling to false and passing only the billing name and email the transactions will be authorized
    - Setting the showBilling to false and didn't passing the billing details object the transactions will occur a validation error.
    - Or setting the showBilling to true and passing the billing object without filling in the details the transactions will occur a validation error.
    - Finally, by setting the showBilling to true and passing the billing object with only the name and email the transactions will be authorized.

  3. Only then you will be ready to start/initiate the payment by passing your PaymentSDKConfiguration object along with the PaymentManagerDelegate object -in which you will handle the payment response- to the startCardPayment 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. 

    PaymentManager.startCardPayment(on: self, 
                                 configuration: configuration,
                                 delegate: self)

    This would make the payment behavior like the one below, in which your customers will have to provide their full card details.
