Mobile Website Browser

Accept Alipay on your mobile app on your shopper’s Android or iOS phone. You can choose to integrate Airwallex mobile SDK that supports multiple payment methods. See checkout experience as below Alipay - Mobile Website Browser

  1. The shopper chooses to pay with Alipay and proceed payment with mobile browser
  2. The shopper login to Alipay account in browser and completes the payment

Step 2. Get available payment methods

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 country_code, transaction_currency, 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.

Request:

Response: Render payment methods in items to show all available payment methods to the shopper at checkout page.

Note for available payment methods:

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.

Step 3. Redirect to Alipay Cashier to complete payment

When a shopper selects to pay with Alipay on their mobile 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.

  1. Obtain URL from Airwallex and redirect shopper to Alipay cashier

  1. 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.

  1. Query the PaymentIntent status

You may also query the status of a payment anytime via the PaymentIntents API

Note:

If you use the mobile browser flow in your App, please do add a referer when you request Alipay payment via the url we returned to you. If not, you cannot pull up Alipay App successfully.
