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

Copied!
<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:

CSS

Copied!
.card .checkout .col-2 {
  display: flex;
}
.card .checkout .col-2 .col:first-child {
  margin-right: 15px;
}
.card .checkout .col-2 .col:last-child {
  margin-left: 15px;
}
.card .checkout .field {
  height: 40px;
  border-bottom: 1px solid lightgray;
}
.card .checkout .field#card-pan {
  margin-bottom: 30px;
}

Initializing the SDK

Once you've included thescriptto get our SDK and set your form and fields configuration, you must initialize the SDK.

Use the Worldpay.checkout.init method to do this.

You must provide your AccessCheckoutIdentity, unique form identifier, and field configuration when initializing the SDK.

Optional configuration

You can also provide your:

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 An 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, sessionState is returned and contains an encrypted payload of your customer's card details.

More Information: Clickherefor more information about the sessionSate.

Use the sessionState in your request to theVerified Tokens APIto receive a token which you can use totake a payment.

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

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.
