Response example:

{
   "id": "27241ae8-e72a-4586-9ef2-78dcb7a0ad9f",
   "orderId": "4DD655383X489915V",
   "createdAt": "2021-02-04T17:23:44Z",
   "status": "INITIATED",
   "approvalUrl": "https://www.sandbox.vipps.com/checkoutnow?token=4DD655383X489915V"
}

For details about the API reference and the request fields, you can review the Create Transaction API (link to Vipps eComm API in API catalog).

Approve the transaction

To approve the transactions, follow these steps:

  1. Open the approvalUrl link from the previous API response in the browser to approve the transaction. This would open the Vipps portal and would show the login page.
  2. Log in using your Vipps credentials and, after reviewing the transaction detail, approve the transaction.
  3. After the approval, you are redirected to the returnUrl that was passed in the applicationContext while creating the transaction.
  4. If you cancel the approval flow in between, then you would be redirected to the cancelUrl.

Authorize the transaction

Make a POST request to /transactions/:id/authorize for authorizing a transaction.

Note: This step is only required if the intent is to authorize a transaction. If the intent is to capture a transaction, please skip this step.

The ID parameter in the URL is the ID from the response of the createTransaction API call.

Capture a payment

  1. Make a POST request to /transactions/:id/capture to capture a transaction payment.
  2. Use the ID parameter from the response of the createTransaction API call as a request parameter.
  3. If you want to capture the full transaction, then there is no need to send the amount in the request payload; instead, a null in the request body is to be sent.
  4. However, if you want to capture a partial amount of the transaction, then you can send the amount object in the request payload as shown below:
 {
   "amount": {
       "value": 50,
       "currencyCode": "USD"
   }
}
