Raw card data

Accept card payments submitting raw card data.

Use our APIs to accept card payments with raw card data, and build your own UI to have full control over the look and feel of your checkout page.

To collect raw card data, you need to be fully PCI compliant. If you're not fully PCI compliant, use one of our client-side solutions or make a custom card integration instead.

Before you begin

These instructions explain how to add card payments to your existing API-only integration. The API-only integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our API-only integration guide.

Before starting your integration:

  1. Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation.
  2. Add the cards that you want to support in your test Customer Area.

Build your payment form for cards

When making a card payment, collect the following shopper details:

Card details Example input Required
The card number "4111111111111111" -white_check_mark-
The card expiry month "03" -white_check_mark-
The card expiry year "30" -white_check_mark-
The security code (CVV / CVC) "737" -white_check_mark-
The card holder's name "S.Hopper"

We provide logos for cards, which you can use on your payment form. For more information, refer to Downloading logos.

For information about the supported countries and currencies for each card, refer to Payment methods.

You can also get the required input fields and a list of supported brands from the /paymentMethods response, when specifying a valid combination of countryCode and amount.currency.

The supported brands and the required input fields are included in the object with type: scheme.

For more information, refer to our API-only integration guide.

  "merchantReference": "YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER"

Present the payment result

Use the resultCode from the /payments response to present the payment result to your shopper. You will also receive the outcome of the payment asynchronously in a notification webhook.

For 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 has been successful.
If you are using manual capture, you also need to capture the payment.
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.
Additional resultCode values are possible in case of the 3D Secure authentication flow. For more information, refer to Result codes.

Recurring payments

Adyen's tokenization service allows you to securely store shopper's card details for recurring payments. To make recurring payments, you first need to create a shopper token, and then use the token to make future payments for the shopper.

Create a token

To store shopper's card details, include in your /payments request:

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

The /payments response contains:

  • recurringDetailReference: This is the token that you'll need to make recurring payments for this shopper.
The recurringDetailReference is also contained in the AUTHORISATION notification that you will receive for this payment.

Show a stored card in your payment form

  1. To get the stored payment methods for a shopper, include in your /paymentMethods request:
    • shopperReference: The unique shopper identifier that you specified when creating the token.
    The /paymentMethods response includes a storedPaymentMethods array containing the stored payment methods for this shopper. The storedPaymentMethods array contains the id that you need when making the payment.
    If your Components version is 3.2.0 or lower, use the oneClickPaymentMethods array and the recurringDetailReference instead.
                "holderName":"John Smith",
                "holderName":"John Smith",
  1. Collect the following card details from the shopper in your payment form:
    Card details Example input
    The security code (CVV / CVC) "737"
  2. Next, proceed to submit a payment request from your server.

Make a payment with a token

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

  • paymentMethod.storedPaymentMethodId: The id from the the /paymentMethods response. This is the recurringDetailReference that you received when creating the token.
  • paymentMethod.cvc: The security code that you collected from the shopper.
  • shopperReference: The unique shopper identifier that you specified when creating the token.
  • shopperInteractionContAuth.
  • recurringProcessingModel: CardOnFile.

The /payments response contains:

   "pspReference": "8815329842815468",
   "resultCode": "Authorised"

You can also use tokens to make shopper-not-present payments for subscriptions or contracts. For more information, refer to Making a payment for a subscription or contract.

Test and go live

Before making live card payments:

  1. Test your integration using our test card numbers.
    You can check the status of test payments in your Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.
  1. Add the cards that you wish to accept in your live Customer Area.
  1. Before you can start accepting card payments in the live environment, you need to assess your PCI DSS compliance and submit the required Self-Assessment Questionnaire D document. For more information, refer to PCI DSS compliance guide.
