Overview

Use this object to create new orders and collect payments from shoppers using products with dynamic information. 

Purchase types available are PRODUCT, TAX, SHIPPING, and COUPON. The surcharge defined in the pricing option is used for calculating the order renewal price, when applicable.

You can find a list of common errors that may arise when using the placeOrder call via APIv6 here.

   This functionality is available only for merchants on the 2Sell and 2Subscribe accounts (PSP business model), for orders that are placed both through ConvertPlus/InLine ordering engines and API calls.

Supported payment methods

  1. Credit/Debit cards: Visa, Visa electron, MasterCard, Maestro, Amex, Discover, Dankort, Carte Bleue, JCB. 2Checkout supports local Brazilian cards.
  2. PayPal
  3. Free orders (no payment information required).
  4. 2Pay.js

How to test?

Place test orders with dynamic product information by following the instructions from this article.

Requirements

The product code must be sent as null. The order currency must match with the payment currency, otherwise, an error is thrown. The isDynamic parameter of the Items object must be true.

For credit card orders placed using API 5.0 or newer versions, you need to pass through additional parameters that support the 3D Secure flow. 3D Secure works by redirecting customers to pages provided by their banks, where they need to enter additional security tokens or passwords to trigger the completion of the charge. By using 3D Secure, you get additional protection from liability for fraudulent card payments, with customers having to go through an extra layer of authentication.

Send the following parameters as part of the PaymentMethod object:

Parameters Description
Vendor3DSReturnURL Required (string)
  URL address to which customers are redirected after the 3DS details get validated by the bank and the order is successfully authorized.
Vendor3DSCancelURL Required (string)
  URL address to which customers are redirected if the 3DS details were not validated or the order could not be authorized.
WSOrder String (optional)
 

The WSOrder parameter is used to control the website URL displayed in the email messages shoppers receive after they place an order. By default, 2Checkout reports the URL set as Homepage in the Account information area. Adding WSOrder to the buy-links for your products will cause the optional website address set by using the parameter to override and replace the Homepage URL in the email notifications sent to customers. The behavior is similar to the WS_ORDER parameter supported on checkout/cart pages and described here.

Limitations

Placing an order with both catalog and dynamic product information is not possible. Recurring options can be set only for purchase type PRODUCT and TAX.
