Create sessions to pay with a card and CVC

Use our React Native SDK to secure your customer's payment details by creating separate sessions for the card details and CVC.

Full Sample Integration

You can see an example of the session generation here.

Set your views

When you create your checkout form, you must set the views that your customers use to enter and submit their card details.

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

  1. JavaScript
  2. TypeScript
import React, {useState} from 'react';
import {Button, TextInput, View} from 'react-native';

export default function CardFlow() {
  const [pan, setPan] = useState ('');
  const [expiryDate, setExpiryDate] = useState ('');
  const [cvc, setCvc] = useState ('');

  function createSession() {
  ...
  }

  return (
    <View>
      <TextInput
        keyboardType="numeric"
        placeholder="Card Number"
        onChangeText={setPan}
      />
      <TextInput
        keyboardType="numeric"
        placeholder="MM/YY"
        onChangeText={setExpiryDate}
      />
      <TextInput
        keyboardType="numeric"
        placeholder="CVC"
        onChangeText={setCvc}
      />
      <Button
        onPress={createSession}
      />
    </View>
  );
}

Validate card details

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

Create CARD session and CVC session

Initialize the AccessCheckout client

You must now initialize the AccessCheckout.

To do this, you must provide your baseUrl and merchantId (checkout ID).

Here's an example of how to initialize it.

import {
  AccessCheckout,
} from '@worldpay/access-worldpay-checkout-react-native-sdk';

const accessCheckout = new AccessCheckout({
  baseUrl: 'https://try.access.worldpay.com/',
  merchantId: 'YOUR_CHECKOUT_ID',
});

Parameters

ParameterDescription
baseUrl
  • For testing use: https://try.access.worldpay.com/
  • For live use: https://access.worldpay.com/
merchantIdYour unique checkout ID.

Generate CARD session and CVC session

You must pass the customer's card details and the CARD and CVC session types to the generateSessions method of the AccessCheckout instance.

Here's an example of what you should do when your customer submits their card details.

  1. JavaScript
  2. TypeScript
import {
  ...
  CARD,
  CVC,
} from '@worldpay/access-worldpay-checkout-react-native-sdk';

...

function createSession() {
  const sessionTypes = [CARD, CVC];
  const cardDetails = {
    pan,
    expiryDate,
    cvc,
  };

  accessCheckout.generateSessions(cardDetails, sessionTypes)
    .then((sessions) => {
      const cardSession = sessions.card;
      const cvcSession = sessions.cvc;
      // do something with the card and cvc sessions ...
    })
    .catch((error) => {
      // do something in case of error
    });
}

Full code sample

Here's the full code sample of the steps above.

  1. JavaScript
  2. TypeScript
import {
  AccessCheckout,
  CARD,
  CVC,
} from '@worldpay/access-worldpay-checkout-react-native-sdk';
import React, {useState} from 'react';
import {Button, TextInput, View} from 'react-native';

export default function CardFlow() {
  const [pan, setPan] = useState ('');
  const [expiryDate, setExpiryDate] = useState ('');
  const [cvc, setCvc] = useState ('');

  const accessCheckout = new AccessCheckout({
    baseUrl: 'https://try.access.worldpay.com/',
    merchantId: 'YOUR_CHECKOUT_ID',
  });

  function createSession() {
    const sessionTypes = [CARD, CVC];
    const cardDetails = {
      pan,
      expiryDate,
      cvc,
    };

    accessCheckout.generateSessions(cardDetails, sessionTypes)
      .then((sessions) => {
        const cardSession = sessions.card;
        const cvcSession = sessions.cvc;
        // do something with the card and cvc sessions ...
      })
      .catch((error) => {
        // do something in case of error
      });
  }

  return (
    <View>
      <TextInput
        keyboardType="numeric"
        placeholder="Card Number"
        onChangeText={setPan}
      />
      <TextInput
        keyboardType="numeric"
        placeholder="MM/YY"
        onChangeText={setExpiryDate}
      />
      <TextInput
        keyboardType="numeric"
        placeholder="CVC"
        onChangeText={setCvc}
      />
      <Button
        title="submit"
        onPress={createSession}
      />
    </View>
  );
}
Caution

Do not validate the structure or length of the session resources. We follow HATEOS standard to allow us the flexibility to extend our APIs with non-breaking changes.

Create a verified token

Once you've received a CARD session you must create a verified token to take a payment.

Important

The CARD session has a lifespan of one minute and you can use it only once. If you do not create a token within that time, you must create a new CARD session value.

Take a payment

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

Important

The CVC session has a lifespan of 15 minutes and you can use it only once. If you do not take a payment within that time, you must create a new CVC session value.

You can use this paymentInstrument in our Card Payments API..
