Vipps for API only

Add Vipps to an existing API-only integration.

Accept Vipps payments using our APIs, and build your own payment form to have full control over the look and feel of your checkout page.

Before you begin

These instructions explain how to add Vipps 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 Vipps integration:

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

Build your payment form for Vipps

Include Vipps in the list of available payment methods. You don't need to collect any information from the shopper in your payment form.

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

If you are using the /paymentMethods request to show available payment methods to the shopper, specify the following:

The response contains paymentMethod.type: vipps.

Make a payment

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

  • paymentMethod: vipps
  • paymentMethod.telephoneNumber (optional): Used to prefill the shopper's phone number on the Vipps-hosted page.
  • channel: Set this to either:
    • Web to receive a url to redirect the shopper to the Vipps-hosted page.
    • iOS or Android to receive a url that switches the shopper to the Vipps app.
  • returnUrl: URL to where the shopper should be taken back to after a redirection.
  • shopperStatement (optional): The description of this payment shown in the Vipps app. If you don't specify a shopperStatement, we'll use the value that you provided as the reference to populate this field.

The /payments response contains:

  • action.url: Link to where you should redirect your shopper.
  • action.method: GET or POST. 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.
    The redirect method depends on your payment method configuration and the length of the data included in the request, so make sure that your integration can handle both HTTP GET and HTTP POST methods.

To verify the payment result in the next step, you also need the following from the /payments response:

  • action.paymentData: The paymentData value that you send in your /payments/details request.
  • details: Array of parameters that you need to send in your /payments/details request. For example, payload or redirectResult.
    The parameters can vary based on the payment method configuration. Always check the details array for the parameters that you need to send in your next API request.
/payments response
{
   "resultCode":"RedirectShopper",
   "action":{
      "method":"GET",
      "paymentData":"Ab02b4c0!BQABAgCSZT7t...",
      "paymentMethodType":"vipps",
      "type":"redirect",
      "url":"https://test.adyen.com/hpp/skipDetails.shtml?brandCode"
   },
   "details":[
      {
         "key":"payload",
         "type":"text"
      }
   ],
   ...
}

Handle the redirect

  1. To complete the payment, redirect the shopper to the action.url returned in the /payments response.
    When using the HTTP GET method:
    For security reasons, when displaying the redirect in the app, we recommend that you use SFSafariViewController for iOS or Chrome Custom Tabs for Android, instead of WebView objects. Also refer to the security best practices for WebView.
  2. After the shopper is redirected back to your website or app, check the payment result by making a /payments/details request, specifying:
    • paymentData: Value you received in the /payments response.
    • details: Object that contains the URL-decoded values of the parameters that were returned when the shopper was redirected back to your website or app. For example, payload or redirectResult.
    The parameters can vary based on the payment method configuration. To check which parameters you should submit, always check the details array from the /payments response.
    /payments/details request
    {
         "paymentData":"Ab02b4c0!BQABAgCJN1wRZuGJmq8dMncmypvknj9s7l5Tj...",
         "details":{
           "{hint:Verify the parameters from /payments response}payload{/hint}":"Ab02b4c0!BQABAgCW5sxB4e/=="
         }
    }
    You receive a response containing:
    • resultCode: Use this to present the result to your shopper.
    • pspReference: Our unique identifier for the transaction.
    /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 Vipps are:

resultCode Description Action to take
Authorised The payment was successful. Inform the shopper that the payment has been successful, and proceed with the order.
You receive the funds after the payment has been captured.
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.

If the shopper failed to return to your website or app, wait for the AUTHORISATION notification to receive 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.

Recurring payments

To make recurring payments for Vipps, you need to:

  1. Create a shopper token when the shopper is making a Vipps payment.
  2. Use the token to make future payments for the shopper.

Create a token

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

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

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

  • eventCode: RECURRING_CONTRACT
  • originalReference: The pspReference of the initial payment.
  • pspReference: The token that you need to make recurring payments for this shopper.
Make sure that your server is able to receive RECURRING_CONTRACT as part of your standard notifications. If you have not requested this additional configuration yet, contact our Support Team.

Make a payment with a token

To make a payment with saved payment details, include in your /payments request:

  • paymentMethod.type: vipps.
  • paymentMethod.storedPaymentMethodId: The pspReference from the RECURRING_CONTRACT notification. Alternatively, you can get this value by using the /listRecurringDetails endpoint.
  • shopperReference: The unique shopper identifier that you specified when creating the token.
  • shopperInteractionContAuth.
  • recurringProcessingModel: Subscription for subscription payments, or CardOnFile for one-off payments. For more information about these parameters, refer to our Tokenization guide.
    Payments with recurringProcessingModel: UnscheduledCardOnFile are currently not supported for Vipps.

Authorised Vipps payments

Because the Adyen payments platform stores authorised payments under the card acquirer, authorised Vipps payments will show up in your Customer Area as Visa or Mastercard payments, with Shopper name: Vipps Placeholder. For example, payments that you make using the Vipps test app are shown as Visa payments.

To find all authorised Vipps payments in the payments list:

  • Enter accountHolderName: vipps in the search bar on top of the payments list.

Refused Vipps payments

Refused Vipps payment are stored by the Adyen payments platform under the Vipps acquirer.

To find all refused Vipps payments in the payments list:

  • Filter by Payment method: Vipps.

Go live
