Bancontact card Component

Add Bancontact card payments to an existing Components integration.

A Bancontact card payment is like a regular card payment, except that there is no security code, and 3D Secure 1 is mandatory.

Our Component renders the Bancontact card in your payment form, and securely collects sensitive card information, so it doesn't touch your server.

When making a Bancontact payment, you need to:

  1. Provide browserInfo when making a payment request.
  2. Use createFromAction to redirect the shopper to perform 3D Secure authentication.

Before you begin

These instructions explain how to add Bancontact card to your existing Web Components integration. The Web 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 Bancontact card integration:

  1. Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation, and created an instance of AdyenCheckout.
  2. Add Bancontact card in your test Customer Area.

Show Bancontact card in your payment form

To present the Bancontact card Component in your payment form:

  1. From your server, make a POST /paymentMethods request specifying:
    • countryCode: BE
    • amount.currency: EUR

  1. Pass the full response from the /paymentMethods call as the paymentMethodsResponse object when creating an instance of the AdyenCheckout.

  2. Add the Component:

    a. Create a DOM element for Bancontact card, placing it where you want the form to be rendered:

    <div id="bancontact-card-container"></div>

    b. Create an instance of the Component, and mount it. You can also include the following additional configuration:

    Field Description Default
    enableStoreDetails Set to true to show the check box for saving the card details for recurring payments. false
    hasHolderName Set to true to show the input field for the card holder name. false
    holderNameRequired Set to true to make the card holder name a required field. To show the field, you additionally need to set hasHolderName to true. false
    holderName String that is used to prefill the card holder name field. Empty
    name String that is used to display the payment method name to the shopper. Depends on the shopperLocale specified in /paymentMethods request.
    styles Set a style object to customize the card input fields. For a list of supported properties, refer to Styling card input fields.
    const bancontact = checkout.create('bcmc', {
     // Optional configuration
      hasHolderName: true,
      holderNameRequired: true
    }).mount('#bancontact-card-container');

    You can also customize your shopper's experience when specific events occur. For more information, refer to Events.

Include Bancontact card in the list of other cards

Instead of creating a separate Component for the Bancontact card, you can include it in the list of cards rendered by the Card Component.

To render Bancontact card through the Card Component, add 'bcmc' to the brands array when creating an instance of the Card Component.

Make a payment

When the shopper selects to pay, the Component calls the onChange event, which contains a state.data.

  1. Pass the state.data to your server.
  2. From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:
  • paymentMethod: The state.data.paymentMethod contained in the onChange event from your front end.
  • browserInfo: The state.data.browserInfo contained in the onChange event from your front end.
  • returnURL: The URL where the shopper will be redirected back to after completing 3D Secure authentication. The URL should include the protocol: http:// or https://. You can also include your own additional query parameters, for example, shopper ID or order reference number.

The /payments response contains:

  • resultCode: RedirectShopper
  • action: Object containing information about the redirect. Pass this to your front end or client app.
  • action.paymentData: Store this value on your server — you need to submit this in your /payments/details request when handling the redirect.
  • details: Array that contains the key parameter names and the corresponding data type that you should expect when the shopper is redirected back to your returnURL. These are also the parameters that you need to submit in your /payments/details when handling the redirect.

         }
     ],
     ...
  }
  1. Pass the action object to your front end.

Handle the redirect

  1. Call createFromAction and pass the action object from the previous step. This will return a new Component that you need to mount:
       checkout.createFromAction(action).mount('#my-container');

    The Component redirects the shopper to perform 3D Secure authentication, and then back to your website with an HTTP POST.

  2. After the shopper is redirected back to your website, submit the authentication results by making a /payments/details request. For more information and detailed instructions, refer to HTTP POST redirects.

Present the payment result

Use the resultCode from 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.

For Bancontact card payments, you can receive the following resultCode values:

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.
Error There was an error when the payment was being processed. For more information, check the refusalReason field. Inform the shopper that there was an error processing their payment.
Refused The payment was refused. For more information, check the refusalReason field. Ask the shopper to try the payment again using a different payment method.

Recurring payments

We support recurring transactions for Bancontact through SEPA Direct Debit. To make recurring payments, you need to:

  1. Create a shopper token.
  2. Use the token to make future payments for the shopper.

Create a token

We strongly recommend that you request explicit permission from the shopper if you intend to make recurring SEPA payments. Being transparent about the payment schedule and the charged amount reduces the risk of chargebacks.

To create a token, include in your /payments request:

  • storePaymentMethod: true
  • shopperReference: Your unique identifier for the shopper.

When the payment has been settled, you receive a notification webhook containing:

  • eventCode: RECURRING_CONTRACT
  • originalReference: The pspReference of the initial payment.
  • pspReference: This is the token that you need to make recurring payments for this shopper.

Make a payment with a token

To make a payment with the token, include in your /payments request:

  • paymentMethod.storedPaymentMethodId: The pspReference from the RECURRING_CONTRACT.
You can also get this value by using the /listRecurringDetails endpoint.
  • shopperReference: The unique shopper identifier that you specified when creating the token.
  • shopperInteractionContAuth.
  • recurringProcessingModel: Subscription or UnscheduledCardOnFile.

For more information about the shopperInteraction and recurringProcessingModel fields, refer to Recurring transaction types.
