Create your checkout form

You must use unique identifiers and field configuration when creating your form. You must then apply default heights to your fields.

Here is an example of how you would set unique identifiers for your field configuration:

HTML

<form class="checkout" id="card-form">
      <label class="label" for="card-pan">Card number <span class="type"></span></label>
      <section id="card-pan" class="field"></section>
      <section class="col-2">
        <section class="col">
          <label class="label" for="card-expiry">Expiry date</label>
        <section id="card-expiry" class="field"></section>
        </section>
        <section class="col">
          <label class="label" for="card-cvv">CVV</label>
          <section id="card-cvv" class="field"></section>
        </section>
      </section>
      <button class="submit" type="submit">Pay Now</button>
    </form>

And an example of how you could set the layout of your checkout page:

ParameterRequiredDescription
idYour AccessCheckoutIdentity.
formYour unique form #id selector.
stylesYour optional styles object configuration.
fieldsThe object that contains your field configurations.
selectorThe #id selector for a given field.
placeholderAn optional text preview showing your customer the type of information they should enter in the field.
accessibilityYour optional accessibility object configuration.
cardBrandsYour optional array of the card brands that you wish to accept.
enablePanFormattingAn optional parameter that, if called, enables the PAN formatting behavior.

In the JavaScript example above, sessions is returned as an object that contains an encrypted payload of your customer's card details in sessions.card. It also has an encrypted payload of the CVV in sessions.cvv.

More information: Clickherefor more information about the sessions object.

Use the sessions.card in your request to theVerified Tokens APIto create a token.

Important: session.card has a lifespan of one minute. If you do not create a token within that time, you must create a new session.card value.

Use the sessions.cvv in the CVC parameter (cvcHref) in our card/checkout paymentInstrument to take a card on file payment.

Important: session.cvv has a lifespan of 15 minutes. If you do not take a payment within that time, you must create a new cvv session. You can do this with ourCVC only SDK.

This paymentInstrument can be used in any of our card on file resources (payments:cardOnFileAuthorize,payments:migrateCardOnFileSaleandpayments:migrateCardOnFileAuthorize).


Need to create a session for CVC only? Take a look at our integration example below:

Create a session for CVC only

Use our Web SDK to capture your customer's CVC which you can use to take a card on file payment alongside a previously created token.

You can only use the CVV only SDK if you have previously received averified tokenfrom an initial payment with the same card details.

ParameterRequiredDescription
idYour AccessCheckoutIdentity.
formYour unique form #id selector.
stylesYour optional styles object configuration.
fieldsThe object that contains your field configurations.
selectorThe #id selector for a given field.
placeholderAn optional text preview showing your customer the type of information they should enter in the field.
accessibilityYour optional accessibility object configuration.

You must provide the cvvOnly object in the fields configuration as shown in this example:

Copied!
fields: {
        cvvOnly: {
          selector: "#cvv-only",
          placeholder: "123"
        },
      },

Use the value of the cvv session and the verified token in our card/checkout paymentInstrument to take a card on file payment.

Important: The cvv session has a lifespan of 15 minutes. If you do not take a payment within that time, you must create a new cvv session.

This paymentInstrument can be used in any of our card on file resources (payments:cardOnFileAuthorize,payments:migrateCardOnFileSaleandpayments:migrateCardOnFileAuthorize).

Clear Form

The SDK also exposes a clearForm method that allows the SDK to be reset. All fields and classes are set back to their original state, without reloading the SDK.

The clearForm method accepts a callback that is called when the entire form has successfully cleared.

Customer behavior would usually trigger this. For example:

  • Clicking a clear form button
  • Successful receipt of a session

This allows the customer to input multiple sets of card details without reloading the SDK.
