Asynchronous Payments

In an asynchronous workflow a redirection takes place to allow the account holder to complete/verify the payment. After this the account holder is redirected back to the app and the status of the payment can be queried.

This article will guide you how to support communication between apps for the asynchronous payment methods.

NOTE: this article assumes you’ve already followed our First Integration tutorial.

Register a custom URL scheme

  1. In Xcode, click on your project in the Project Navigator and navigate to App Target > Info > URL Types
  2. Click [+] to add a new URL type
  3. Under URL Schemes, enter your app switch return URL scheme. This scheme must start with your app’s Bundle ID. For example, if the app bundle ID is com.companyname.appname, then your URL scheme could be com.companyname.appname.payments.
  4. Add scheme URL to a whitelist in your app’s Info.plist:
<key>LSApplicationQueriesSchemes</key>
<array>
    <string>com.companyname.appname.payments</string>
</array>

NOTE: If you have multiple app targets, be sure to add the return URL type for all of the targets.

Shopper result URL

As soon as asynchronous payment is processed, shopper result URL is opened. You should set it in OPPCheckoutSettings class to handle payment result. Sample URL: com.companyname.appname.payments://result. The scheme should be the same that you’ve registered in the previous step. The rest part of URL can be any valid string (but not empty).

Do not set shopperResultURL if it’s already sent in the first step (prepare checkout request). It will cause an override error.

Update your application delegate

Then, in order to finalize the step, handle specific callback in the AppDelegate or SceneDelegate depending on deployment target of your app, see the code snippets below. Make sure that URL scheme is identical to the registered one in previous step. Then send notification to request payment status and display result to the customer. Important: You are responsible to close checkout by calling method dismissCheckoutAnimated:completion: of OPPCheckoutProvider class. If you have no access to the OPPCheckoutProvider instance from the app delegate, you can use broadcast notifications to handle result in the view controller. iOS 10-12, AppDelegate
iOS 13 and newerSceneDelegate

Testing

You can test your custom URL scheme by opening up a URL that starts with it (e.g. com.companyname.appname.payments://test) in Mobile Safari on your iOS Device or Simulator. In addition, always test your app switching on a real device.

Note: Android

Android

Register a custom URL scheme

Define the name of your custom scheme (for example companyname) and add intent filter to your target activity in the AndroidManifest.xml
<activity
    android:name="YOUR_ACTIVITY"
    android:launchMode="singleTask">

    <intent-filter>
        <data android:scheme="companyname"/>

        <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/>

        <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/>
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/>
    </intent-filter>
</activity>

NOTE: it is important to use launchMode singleTask for target activity.

Shopper result URL

As soon as asynchronous payment is processed, shopper result URL is opened. You should set it in PaymentParams class to handle payment result. Sample URL: companyname://result. The scheme should be the same that you’ve registered in the previous step. The rest part of URL can be any valid string (but not empty).

Do not set shopperResultUrl if it’s already sent in the first step (prepare checkout request). It will cause an override error.

Handle the redirect intent in target activity

Override onNewIntent method of your target activity to handle redirect intent and make payment status request.

NOTE: The URL will not be opened for BOLETO payment brand. You can use your Activity callback to detect that the shopper returned to the app, for example onStart().
