Read more about the Checkout SDK and the supported payment journeyshere.

Note: Make yourself familiar with ourAPI Principlesto ensure a resilient integration.

Important: Please ensure you integrate the SDK as advised in our documentation or you might be subject to additional PCI Compliance and won't meet the SAQ-A Compliance level.

How does it work?

We are securing your customer's payment details by extracting their card details from the UI component and creating a session. You can thencreate a tokenwith the session totake a payment.

What is a session?

A session is a unique identifier for your customer's card details, generated by the SDK.
