Card integration

Integrate with any of the following to start accepting card payments:

Easy Encryption code examples

Have a look at code examples showing sample Easy Encryption implementations on GitHub.

Adyen hosted

In this case an Easy Encryption library is hosted by Adyen with your public key injected into JavaScript code. You retrieve this library from the unique URL provided to you by Adyen, and thus you don't need to download and host the adyen.encrypt.min.js on your own servers.

Log in the  Adyen Customer Area (CA) using your company-level account.
  1. Go to Settings → Users and filter the list of users by System in the drop-down box.
  2. Navigate to the Web Service (ws) user page.
  3. Go to Easy Encryption → Library location.
    If the library is not available yet, click Generate and then Save to create a new URL.

Form template

Build your payment form using this template and add a way to reference to this form from JavaScript. For example, define a unique  id attribute value for this form by adding  id="adyen-encrypted-form".
<form method="POST" action="#handler" id="adyen-encrypted-form">
    <input type="text" size="20" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="number" />
    <input type="text" size="20" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="holderName" />
    <input type="text" size="2" maxlength="2" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="expiryMonth" />
    <input type="text" size="4" maxlength="4" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="expiryYear" />
    <input type="text" size="4" maxlength="4" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="cvc" />
    <input type="hidden" value="generate-this-server-side" data-encrypted-name="generationtime" />
    <input type="submit" value="Pay" />
</form>

Also, do the following:

  • For the form.action attribute, replace #handler to the payment handler URL on your server.
  • Card input fields should not have a name attribute, but are annotated by the data-encrypted-name attribute, to mark them for encryption.

    Replacing name with data-encrypted-name restricts raw card data from being posted to your servers and avoids impact transaction security and violate PCI regulations.

  • Add a hidden  generationtime field to include a server-side timestamp in the data you submit with the form. It determines whether a payment request is valid or not: transactions submitted later than 24 hours from the timestamp value are refused. 

    The generation time value must be created server-side, because the client browser system clock may not be correctly synchronised, which would cause the payment transaction to fail.

JavaScript

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://test.adyen.com/hpp/cse/js/{your Test WS user's library token}.shtml"></script>
<!-- For live: 
   <script type="text/javascript" src="https://live.adyen.com/hpp/cse/js/{your Live WS user's library token}.shtml"></script>
   Note that this token is not your public key, but a library token instead.
-->

Initialise the easy encryption form as in the normal HTML Form based integration. Note that the AMD style is not yet available for the hosted EE library.

// The form element to encrypt.
var form    = document.getElementById('adyen-encrypted-form');

// Form and encryption options. See adyen.encrypt.simple.html for details.
var options = {};

// Create the form.
// Note that the method is on the adyen object, not the adyen.encrypt object.
adyen.createEncryptedForm(form, options); 
</script>


If you have implemented a single-page interface and do not want the form to reload the page when the payment gets submitted, implement the onsubmit option.

After including the JavaScript cryptographic library, you can use JavaScript or AJAX to customize the POST submission behaviour.

For example, you can:

  • Pass an additional options parameter in the createEncryptedForm method.
  • Change the name of the encrypted data container. Its default name is adyen-encrypted-data.
  • Submit the form using AJAX instead of the default submit action, as shown in this example:
var encryptedBloblFieldName = "myFieldName";

options.name = encryptedBlobFieldName;
options.onsubmit = function(e) {
    var encryptedData = form.elements[encryptedBlobFieldName].value;
    // ... Your AJAX code here ....
    e.preventDefault();
};

adyen.createEncryptedForm(form, options);

Merchant hosted

This integration binds to existing HTML in the page, adding a hidden input containing the encrypted card data to the form on the moment the form is submitted. The complete integration requires HTML markup to be present in the page, as well as accompanying JavaScript to enable the behaviour.

  1. Download adyen.encrypt.min.js and host it yourself. Both HTML-based and JavaScript-only integrations are supported.
  2. Download adyen.encrypt.nodom.min.js and host it yourself. Only supports JavaScript-only integration.

Form template

Build your payment form using this template and add a way to reference to this form from JavaScript. For example, define a unique  id attribute value for this form by adding  id="adyen-encrypted-form".
<form method="POST" action="#handler" id="adyen-encrypted-form">
    <input type="text" size="20" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="number" />
    <input type="text" size="20" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="holderName" />
    <input type="text" size="2" maxlength="2" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="expiryMonth" />
    <input type="text" size="4" maxlength="4" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="expiryYear" />
    <input type="text" size="4" maxlength="4" autocomplete="off" data-encrypted-name="cvc" />
    <input type="hidden" value="generate-this-server-side" data-encrypted-name="generationtime" />
    <input type="submit" value="Pay" />
</form>

Also, do the following:

  • For the form.action attribute, replace #handler to the payment handler URL on your server.
  • Card input fields should not have a name attribute, but are annotated by the data-encrypted-name attribute, to mark them for encryption.

    Replacing name with data-encrypted-name restricts raw card data from being posted to your servers and avoids impact transaction security and violate PCI regulations.

  • Add a hidden  generationtime field to include a server-side timestamp in the data you submit with the form. It determines whether a payment request is valid or not: transactions submitted later than 24 hours from the timestamp value are refused. 

    The generation time value must be created server-side, because the client browser system clock may not be correctly synchronised, which would cause the payment transaction to fail.

JavaScript

Accompanying the above the HTML template, there are two variants to including the EE library. The original plain JavaScript variant relies on a global adyen.encrypt object, while on popular demand a AMD style module has been added.

Include the Adyen Client-Side Encryption library to your page.

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/adyen.encrypt.min.js"></script>

Enrich a form in your page with the EE on submit and (optionally) validation behaviours.

// The form element to encrypt.
var form    = document.getElementById('adyen-encrypted-form');
 
// The public key.
var key     =   "your key as retrieved from the Customer Area Web Service user page";

// Form and encryption options. See adyen.encrypt.simple.html for details.
var options = {};

// Bind encryption to the form.
adyen.encrypt.createEncryptedForm(form, key, options);

Make sure you include require.js or an alternative AMD module loader in your page.

<script src="path/to/libs/require.js/2.1.17/require.min.js"></script>

You can either rename the adyen.encrypt.min.js into adyen/encrypt.js, or add a paths configuration:

// Your paths config, or rename the adyen.encrypt.min.js to adyen/encrypt.js require.config({ paths: { 'adyen/encrypt' :
'../simple/js/adyen.encrypt.min' } });

In the main.js or a similar file, enrich the form using a require call.

require(['adyen/encrypt'], function(adyenEncrypt) {
    // The form element to encrypt.
    var form    = document.getElementById('adyen-encrypted-form');
 
    // The public key.
    var key     =   "your key as retrieved from the Customer Area Web Service user page";
 
    // Form and encryption options. See adyen.encrypt.simple.html for details
    var options = {};
 
    // Bind encryption to the form.
    adyenEncrypt.createEncryptedForm(form, key, options);
});
</script>

If you have implemented a single-page interface and do not want the form to reload the page when the payment gets submitted, implement the onsubmit option.

After including the JavaScript cryptographic library, you can use JavaScript or AJAX to customize the POST submission behaviour.

For example, you can:

  • Pass an additional options parameter in the createEncryptedForm method.
  • Change the name of the encrypted data container. Its default name is adyen-encrypted-data.
  • Submit the form using AJAX instead of the default submit action, as shown in this example:
var encryptedBloblFieldName = "myFieldName";

options.name = encryptedBlobFieldName;
options.onsubmit = function(e) {
    var encryptedData = form.elements[encryptedBlobFieldName].value;
    // ... Your AJAX code here ....
    e.preventDefault();
};

adyen.createEncryptedForm(form, options);

The public key is associated with the Web Service (ws) user account you use to submit the API payment request. If no key has been generated yet, you can create one from Adyen Customer Area (CA).

For this, log in the Customer Area using your company-level account, go to Settings / Users, filter the list of users by System in the drop-down box, and then open the Web Service (ws) user page. On this page you can find the public key on the Easy Encryption pane, or (if the key is not available yet), click Generate and then Save (at the page bottom) to create a new key.

JavaScript only

In case the HTML integration does not fulfill your setup requirements, the library has been split up into two parts since release V0_1_11. The newly introduced part is an HTML-independent encryption.

As with all EE integrations, make sure that no card data is sent to your server unencrypted.

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/adyen.encrypt.nodom.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
(function() {
    var key     =   "your key as retrieved from the Adyen Customer Area Web Service user page"; 
    var options = {}; // See adyen.encrypt.nodom.html for details

    var cseInstance = adyen.encrypt.createEncryption(key, options);

    function encryptMyData() {

        var postData = {};

        var cardData = {
            number : cardNumber,
            cvc : cvc,
            holderName : holderName,
            expiryMonth : expiryMonth,
            expiryYear : expiryYear,
            generationtime : generationtime
        };

        postData['adyen-encrypted-data'] = cseInstance.encrypt(cardData);

        // AJAX call or different handling of the post data.
    }

})();
</script>


The public key is associated with the Web Service (ws) user account you use to submit the API payment request. If no key has been generated yet, you can create one from Adyen Customer Area (CA).

For this, log in the Customer Area using your company-level account, go to Settings / Users, filter the list of users by System in the drop-down box, and then open the Web Service (ws) user page. On this page you can find the public key on the Easy Encryption pane, or (if the key is not available yet), click Generate and then Save (at the page bottom) to create a new key.
