Create a session to pay with card

Use our Web SDK to secure your customer's card details by creating a session.

Full sample integration: You can see an example of the session generationhere.

Set your views

When you create your checkout form, you must set the views that your customers use to enter their card details. You must use unique identifiers for your view configurations.

Here's an example of how you would set your view configurations.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
              android:layout_width="match_parent"
              android:layout_height="match_parent" >

    <!-- layout style attributes omitted -->
    <EditText android:id="@+id/pan" />

    <!-- layout style attributes omitted -->
    <EditText android:id="@+id/expiryDate" />

    <!-- layout style attributes omitted -->
    <EditText android:id="@+id/cvc" />

    <!-- layout style attributes omitted -->
    <Button android:id="@+id/submit_button" />

</LinearLayout>

Reference your views

You must now reference your view configurations. Use the same unique view identifiersas above.

Here's an example of how you would reference your view configurations.

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)

        val pan = findViewById<EditText>(R.id.pan)
        val cvc = findViewById<EditText>(R.id.cvc)
        val expiryDate = findViewById<EditText>(R.id.expiryDate)
        val submit = findViewById<Button>(R.id.submit_button)
    }

}
package com.worldpay.access.checkout.sample.code

// android library imports omitted

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

        EditText pan = findViewById<EditText>(R.id.pan);
        EditText cvc = findViewById<EditText>(R.id.cvc);
        EditText expiryDate = findViewById<EditText>(R.id.expiryDate);
        Button submit = findViewById<Button>(R.id.submit_button);
    }

}

Validate card details

You can optionally validate your customer's card details. You can find instructionshere.

Create a session

Implementing callbacks

The SDK converts the customer's card details. The SDK then retrieves the session by invoking a callback to the implementation class of the SessionResponseListener interface.

You must create a class that implements our SessionResponseListener interface.

Your implementation receives notifications once the session request is complete.

You get the session as a Map<SessionType, String> or the exception as a AccessCheckoutException in case of an error.

Here is an example implementation of the SessionResponseListener interface.

import com.worldpay.access.checkout.client.api.exception.AccessCheckoutException
import com.worldpay.access.checkout.client.session.listener.SessionResponseListener
import com.worldpay.access.checkout.client.session.model.SessionType

class MySessionResponseListener: SessionResponseListener {

    override fun onSuccess(sessionResponseMap: Map<SessionType, String>) {
        //TODO: handle the session response here
    }

    override fun onError(error: AccessCheckoutException) {
        //TODO: handle the exception here
    }

}
package com.worldpay.access.checkout.sample.code

import com.worldpay.access.checkout.client.api.exception.AccessCheckoutException;
import com.worldpay.access.checkout.client.session.listener.SessionResponseListener;
import com.worldpay.access.checkout.client.session.model.SessionType;

public class MySessionResponseListener implements SessionResponseListener {

    @Override
    public void onSuccess(Map<SessionType, String> sessionResponseMap) {
        //TODO: handle the session response here
    }

    @Override
    public void onError(AccessCheckoutException error) {
        //TODO: handle the exception here
    }

}

Initialize the AccessCheckoutClient

You must now initialize the AccessCheckoutClient using the AccessCheckoutClientBuilder.

To do this, you must provide your baseUrl, merchantId and other parameters. See the table below for more information.

Here's an example of how you would initialize the SDK with the mandatory parameters and configurations.

Generating CARD session

You must pass the customer's card details and the SessionType.CARD enum to the generateSessions method on the AccessCheckoutClient instance.

Here's an example of what you should do when your customer clicks the submit button.

Create a verified token

Once you've received a CARD session you must create averified tokentotake a payment.
