Our Android Drop-in renders Alipay in your payment form, and redirects the shopper to the Alipay app or website where they can complete the payment.
Before you begin
This page explains how to add Alipay 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 Alipay integration:
Show Alipay 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 Alipay in your payment form, specify in your /paymentMethods request:
- countryCode: The country where the shopper is, in this case a supported country outside of China, for example NL.
- amount.currency: Any supported currency. For example, EUR. See Processing currencies for ecommerce for more information.
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.paymentMethodto your server.
From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:
paymentComponentData.paymentMethodfrom 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). This URL can have a maximum of 1024 characters.
The /payments response contains an
action object with the information needed to redirect the shopper.
If your integration is set up correctly, the
action object is passed from your server to the client.

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

Test and go live
We recommend doing live penny tests:
- Get an Alipay wallet app, set it up with a credit or debit card, and do live penny tests (payments for a minimal amount).
- View the details of your Alipay test payments in your live Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.
Before you can accept live Alipay payments, you need to submit a request for Alipay in your live Customer Area.
