Versioning log

Version 3 (22 January 2024)

PCI and Payments API support

Support for enhanced card sessions

  • The SDK now returns a card session URL in the form of https://access.worldpay.com/sessions/.... Previously, the card session URL looked like this: https://access.worldpay.com/verifiedTokens/sessions/... .

The format of the new card session URL supports our new upcoming Payments API, whilst also remaining compatible with our Verified Tokens API.

Support for SAQ-A compliance

  • We have added a new UI Component (AccessCheckoutEditText) dedicated to capturing and encapsulating your customer's card details to minimize your exposure to PCI Data.

At a high level, you now pass references of instances of this UI component to our SDK. The SDK ensures you don't have to manipulate card details directly. This allows your application to be assessed against the PCI SAQ-A standard.

Version 2 functionality that is deprecated in version 3:

  • Support for using EditText (planned removal in version 4)
  • Support for directly passing card details to create an instance of CardDetails (planned removal in version 4)
  • Support for using merchantId() in AccessCheckoutClientBuilder to pass your Checkout ID is deprecated and replaced by checkoutId() (planned removal of merchantId() in version 4)

Minimum version requirements

  • The minimum version supported is API Level 26

Version 2 (30 July 2020)

Simplified integration

Version 2 has a simplified integration and caters for CVC session creation for our Android and iOS SDK.
