Alma Drop-in integration

Add Alma to an existing Drop-in integration.

Our Android Drop-in renders Alma in your payment form, and redirects the shopper to complete the payment.

Before you begin

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

Before starting your alma integration:

  1. Make sure you have set up your back end implementation.
  2. Add Alma in your test Customer Area.

Show Alma in your payment form

Drop-in uses the countryCode and the amount.currency from your /paymentMethods request to show the available payment methods to your shopper.

To show alma in your payment form, specify in your /paymentMethods request:

After the shopper enters their payment details, Drop-in returns the paymentComponentData.paymentMethod. Pass this to your server and make a payment request.

Make a payment

When the shopper proceeds to pay, Drop-in returns the paymentComponentData.paymentMethod.

  1. Pass the paymentComponentData.paymentMethod to your server.

  2. From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:

    • paymentMethod: The paymentComponentData.paymentMethod from your client app.
    • returnURL: URL to where the shopper should be redirected back to after they complete the payment. This URL can have a maximum of 1024 characters. Get this URL from the Component in the RedirectComponent.getReturnUrl(context).

You can also include the following fields, so that the shopper doesn't have to fill in this information on the Alma-hosted page:

Parameter name Required Description
telephoneNumber The shopper's telephone number.
shopperEmail The shopper's email address.
billingAddress The postal address of the shopper.
deliveryAddress The postal address where the purchased goods should be delivered.

The /payments response contains an action object with the information needed to redirect the shopper.

/payments response
{
   "resultCode":"RedirectShopper",
   "action":{
      "paymentMethodType":"alma",
      "method":"GET",
      "url":"https://checkoutshopper-test.adyen.com/checkoutshopper/checkoutPaymentRedirect?redirectData=...",
      "type":"redirect"
   }
}

If your integration is set up correctly, the action object is passed from your server to the client.

Check the payment result

Drop-in redirects the shopper to complete the payment. When the shopper returns back to your app, Drop-in provides the actionComponentData object.

From your server, make a POST /payments/details request providing:

  • details: The actionComponentData.details object from Drop-in.

/payments/details request
  curl https://checkout-test.adyen.com/v68/payments/details \
  -H "x-API-key: YOUR_X-API-KEY" \
  -H "content-type: application/json" \
  -d '{
       "details": {
         "redirectResult": "eyJ0cmFuc1N0YXR1cyI6IlkifQ=="
     }
  }'

You receive a response containing:

  • resultCode: Use this to present the payment result to your shopper.
  • pspReference: Our unique identifier for the transaction.

/payments/details response
{
     "resultCode": "Authorised",
     "pspReference": "PPKFQ89R6QRXGN82"
}

Present the payment result

Use the resultCode that you received in the /payments/details response to present the payment result to your shopper.

You will also receive the outcome of the payment asynchronously in a notification webhook.

The resultCode values you can receive for Alma are:

resultCode Description Action to take
Authorised The shopper completed their payment, and it has been sent to the bank for processing. In most cases, this means that you will receive the funds. If you are using manual capture, you also need to capture the payment. Inform the shopper that the payment has been successful.
Cancelled The shopper cancelled the payment while on their bank's website. Ask the shopper whether they want to continue with the order, or ask them to select a different payment method.
Error There was an error when the payment was being processed. Inform the shopper that there was an error processing their payment. The response contains a refusalReason, indicating the cause of the error.
Pending or
Received
The shopper has completed the payment but the final result is not yet known. Inform the shopper that you've received their order, and are waiting for the payment to be completed.
You will receive the final result of the payment in an AUTHORISATION notification.
Refused The payment was refused by the shopper's bank. 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. The notification webhooks you can receive for Alma are:

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

Check the status of Alma test payments in your Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.
Before you can accept live Alma payments, you need to submit a request for Alma in your live Customer Area.
