Afterpay Redirect Component

Add Afterpay to an existing Components integration.

You can use our Redirect Component to handle the redirect to Afterpay.

When adding Afterpay to your existing Components integration, you also need to:

  1. Show Afterpay in your payment form.
  2. Collect shopper details, and specify these in your payment request. Afterpay uses these for risk checks.
  3. Provide information about the purchased items in your payment request.
  4. Handle the redirect result when the shopper returns to your website.

Before you begin

This page explains how to add Afterpay to your existing Android Components integration. The Android Components integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Components integration guide.

Before starting your Afterpay integration:

  1. Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation for making API requests.
  2. Add Afterpay in your test Customer Area.

Show Afterpay in your payment form

Include Afterpay in the list of available payment methods, and collect the required shopper details:

  1. Specify in your /paymentMethods request one of the following combinations of countryCode and amount.currency:

    Country countryCode amount.currency
    Australia AU AUD
    New Zealand NZ NZD
    United States US USD
    Canada CA CAD

    The response contains paymentMethod.type: afterpaytouch.

  2. Collect the following shopper details:

    • Full name
    • Email address
    • Billing address and delivery address.
    Afterpay uses these information for risk checks.

We provide an Afterpay logo which you can use on your payment form. For more information, refer to Downloading logos.

Make a payment

  1. When the shopper proceeds to pay, make a /payments request from your server, specifying:

    • paymentMethod.type: Set this to afterpaytouch to redirect to Afterpay.
    • returnURL: URL to where the shopper should be redirected back to after they complete the payment. Get this URL from the Component in the RedirectComponent.getReturnUrl(context).
    curl \
    -H "x-API-key: YOUR_X-API-KEY" \
    -H "content-type: application/json" \
    -d '{
      "{hint:`paymentComponentData.paymentMethod` from Drop-in}paymentMethod{/hint}":{
      "telephoneNumber":"+61 2 8520 3890",
         "street":"Happy Street"
         "street":"Happy Street"
            "id":"Item #1"
            "id":"Item #2"

    The /payments response contains:

    • action.method: GET. The HTTP request method that you should use. After the shopper completes the payment, they will be redirected back to your returnURL using the same method.

    /payments response
  2. Pass the action object to your client app. You need this to initialize the Redirect Component.

Handle the redirect

  1. Use the Redirect Component to redirect the shopper to Afterpay.

  2. After the shopper returns to your app, make a POST /payments/details request from your server, providing:

    • paymentData: The value from the /payments response.
    • details: The actionComponentData.details object from the Redirect Component.

    /payments/details request
      "{hint:Value from actionComponentData.details}details{/hint}":{

    You receive a response containing:

    /payments/details response
      "resultCode": "Authorised",
      "pspReference": "88154795347618C"

Present the payment result

Use the resultCode that you received in the /payments/details response to present the payment result to your shopper.
The resultCode values you can receive for Afterpay are:

resultCode Description Action to take
Authorised The payment was successful. Inform the shopper that the payment was successful.
Cancelled The shopper cancelled the payment. Ask the shopper whether they want to continue with the order, or ask them to select a different payment method.
Pending or
The shopper has completed the payment but the final result is not yet known. It may take minutes or hours to confirm this. Inform the shopper that you've received their order, and are waiting for the payment to be completed.
To know the final result of the payment, wait for the AUTHORISATION notification.
Refused The payment was refused by Afterpay. Ask the shopper to try the payment again using a different payment method.

If the shopper failed to return to your website or app, wait for notification webhooks to know the outcome of the payment:

eventCode success field Description Action to take
AUTHORISATION false The transaction failed. Cancel the order and inform the shopper that the payment failed.
AUTHORISATION true The shopper successfully completed the payment. Inform the shopper that the payment has been successful and proceed with the order.

Test and go live

To test Afterpay payments, you need a test shopper account in the Afterpay sandbox environment. If you are testing in multiple countries or regions, create a different test account for each.
To create a test account:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter a real email address and click Continue. You'll get confirmations of payments and refunds like any other shopper on this email address.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select the country for which you want to create a test shopper account. Select Australia, New Zealand, US or Canada.
  4. Enter any mobile telephone number that is formatted correctly, and click Continue. Check the input box for hints on the format. The phone number won't be used.
  5. When you are prompted to enter your SMS verification code, enter 111111.
  6. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete your profile, accept the terms and conditions, and click Continue.

To test payments, you can use the card details provided in the Afterpay developer documentation, or use one of the Adyen test cards. Use CVV 000 to simulate authorised payments, or CVV 051 to simulate refused payments.

You can check the status of test payments in your Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.

Before you can accept live Afterpay payments, you need to submit a request for Afterpay in your live Customer Area.
