Process Payments

Processing payments entails making API calls that facilitate payments from payers to merchants on your platform. This can be seamlessly done on your platform with two flexible options:

  • Embedded Checkout: You can minimize PCI compliance responsibilities and collect payment information within a co-branded iframe.
  • Custom Checkout: Your platform collects payment information within your own custom-branded form, and tokenizes credit cards for later use.

Option PROS CONS
Embedded Checkout
  • Easy to implement.
  • Already optimized for high conversion rates.
  • Already mobile optimized.
  • Takes care of all of the validation for you.
  • Accepts payments from bank accounts and credit cards.
  • The content inside the iframe is not 100% customizable.
Custom Checkout
  • 100% control over the payment experience
  • You can use the credit_card_id to charge the card multiple times.
  • Accepts payments from bank accounts and credit cards.
  • You will need to make sure that you are not leaking credit card information.
  • You have to do all of the validation yourself.
  • You will have to design and optimize the payment form yourself.
