PayMe Drop-in integration

Add PayMe to an existing Drop-in integration.

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

PayMe is supported from Android Drop-in version 4.0.0.

Before you begin

This page explains how to add PayMe 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 PayMe integration:

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

Show PayMe 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. From your server, make a /paymentMethods request specifying:

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. Get this URL from the Component in the RedirectComponent.getReturnUrl(context).

The /payments response contains:

  • action: Object containing information about the redirect.

    "resultCode": "RedirectShopper",
    "action": {
        "expiresAt": "2021-01-30T16:09:09Z",
        "paymentMethodType": "payme",
        "url": "",
        "method": "GET",
        "type": "redirect"

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

  1. Pass the action object to your client app. Drop-in needs this to redirect the shopper to the PayMe app.

See the Android Drop-in integration guide to get the payment outcome and show your shopper the result of the payment.

Test and go live
