One-Click Payments

One-Click Payments utilize a previously generated payment token to prefill payment details for credit card or invoice payments pages - which means that the payer don't need to enter these details for every purchase. 


The main purchase flow and implementation is exactly the same as described in the Redirect and Hosted View scenarios for card payments, the difference being the use of a paymentToken. The details in this section describe explicitly the parameters that must be set to enable one-click purchases.

Payment Url

For our hosted view, the URL property called paymentUrl will be used if the consumer is redirected out of the hosted view frame through our Credit Card API. The consumer is redirected out of frame when at the 3d secure verification for credit card payments. The URL should represent the page of where the payment hosted view was hosted originally, such as the checkout page, shopping cart page, or similar. Basically, paymentUrl should be set to the same URL as that of the page where the JavaScript for the hosted payment view was added to in order to initiate the payment. Please note that the paymentUrl must be able to invoke the same JavaScript URL from the same Payment as the one that initiated the payment originally, so it should include some sort of state identifier in the URL. The state identifier is the ID of the order, shopping cart or similar that has the URL of the Payment stored.

With paymentUrl in place, the retry process becomes much more convenient for both the integration and the payer.

API requests to generate paymentToken

When making the initial purchase request, you need to generate a paymentToken. You can do this either by by setting generatePaymentToken to true when doing a card purchase, or set the initial operation to Verify.

Credit cardPurchase or VerifyIf Purchase, generatePaymentToken must be set to true. A verification payment generates a paymentToken automatically.
generatePaymentToken property
"generatePaymentToken": "true"

When the purchase is followed through a paymentToken will linked to the payment.  You can return the value by making a GETrequest payment resource (expanding either the authorizations or verifications sub-resource), after the consumer successfully has completed the purchase.

GET$expand=[authorizations|verifications] HTTP/1.1
"paymentToken": "5adc265f-f87f-4313-577e-08d3dca1a26c",

You need to store the paymentToken in your system and keep track of the corresponding consumer-ID in your system.

Returning purchases

When a known consumer (where you have attained a consumer-ID or similar) returns to your system, you can use the payment token, using already stored payment data, to initiate enable one-click payments. You will need to make a standard redirect purchase, following the sequence as specified in the Redirect scenarios for  credit-card and financing invoice. When making the first POSTrequest you insert the paymentToken attribute. This must be the  paymentToken you received in the initial purchase, where you specified the generatePaymentToken to true.

See the technical reference, for how to create a card and invoice payment.
