Accept Alipay on your website by presenting your QR code to the shopper. See checkout experience as below

Create a PaymentIntent object with a
currency and a
merchant_order_id from your backend server.
To be able to display Alipay as a payment option on your checkout page, you need to get available payment methods from Airwallex API.
When the PaymentIntent is created, send a
GET request with parameters
transaction_mode to API endpoint
/api/v1/pa/config/payment_method_types to query for a list of available payment method based on the information provided. The response will also contain the required fields and necessary resources of each payment method for you to display them on your page.
Response: Render payment methods in
items to show all available payment methods to the shopper at checkout page.
Alternatively, you can maintain available payment methods and corresponding resources locally on your server if you do not want to use this API endpoint. However, we highly recommend you get available payment methods dynamically from this API to avoid any trouble when payment method information or resources get updated.
When a shopper selects to pay with Alipay on their desktop browser, call the following API endpoints to get a e-wallet cashier URL, which you can redirect the shopper to Alipay cashier to complete payment.
- Obtain URL from Airwallex and redirect shopper to Alipay cashier
Response: Render the value of
qrcode_url to redirect shoppers to Alipay Cashier.
- Wait for notification from Airwallex
Airwallex will notify you on the payment result asynchronously via the webhook API. Please refer to webhook documentation to set up your webhook accordingly. Although subscribing to different events is optional, it is recommended to at least subscribe to the ‘payment_intent.succeeded’ which indicates that the shopper has successfully paid for the order via Alipay.
- Query the PaymentIntent status
You may also query the status of a payment anytime via the PaymentIntents API
