Google Pay

The Google Pay payment method allows a merchant to request any credit or debit card stored in their customer’s Google account.

This payment method adds another layer of ease-of-purchase for consumers to quickly complete transactions from their Google Wallet. All currencies are available in supported countries.

This guide describes how to create and customize a Google Pay element for your shoppers.

You can find an example of integration here.

Create a Google Pay payment method for your app or website in two easy steps:

Step 1. Create a Google Pay source using Digital River.js

To create a Google Pay payment source, please follow the DigitalRiver.js reference guide.

Create a Google Pay element

After setting up your library per the DigitalRiver.js reference guide, create a Google Pay element with any customizations you would like to apply.

var paymentRequestData = digitalriver.paymentRequest({
country: "US",
currency: "USD",
total: {
label: "Order Total",
amount: 100
},
displayItems: lineItems,
shippingOptions: shippingOptions,
style: {
buttonType: "plain",
buttonColor: "dark",
buttonLanguage: "en"
},
"sessionId": "9f180964-9da4-43ac-b8e0-ae54d832b03c"
});
var googlepay = digitalriver.createElement('googlepay', paymentRequestData);

Configure the Google Pay element to handle events

The Google Pay element will surface events, which will give you more information to facilitate what is happening within the Google Pay experience.

These events include:

Event

Triggered When

ready

The created element is loaded and ready to accept an update request.

click

A shopper clicked the element's button.

cancel

The customer has canceled the experience.

shippingoptionchange

The customer has chosen a different shipping option than was previously selected. You should use this data to re-price your order totals (if applicable).

shippingaddresschange

The customer has chosen a different address than was previously selected. You should use this data to re-price your order totals (if applicable).

source

The customer has authorized the payment and a source, and DigitalRiver.js returned associated data.

Note: To use Google Pay, you must listen to, at minimum, the Source event.

googlepay.on('source', function(event) {
var source = result.source;
//pass the source to your back end for further processing.
//once verified that the source is created successfully, complete the Google Pay session by answering with a success message
event.complete('success');
});
googlepay.on('shippingaddresschange', function(event) {
var shippingAddress = event.shippingAddress;
//create a Payment Request Details Update Object
var newDetails = createPaymentRequestDetailsUpdateObject();
event.updateWith(newDetails);
});

The Shipping Address Changed and Shipping Method Changed events require a response of updated details to present to the Shopper. This system expects the response to be in the format of a Payment Request Details Update object.

Place the elements on the page

The following example shows how to place the elements on the page. For more information on placing elements on a page, see Google Pay example.

if (googlepay.canMakePayment()) {
googlepay.mount("googlepay-element");
document.getElementById('googlepay-element').style.display = 'block';
}

Receive the source event and use the source

googlepay.on('source', function(event) {
var source = result.source;
//pass the source to your back end for further processing.
//once verified that the source is created successfully, complete the Google Pay session by answering with a success message
event.complete('success');
});

Google Pay example

The source event will surface a Source plus other details provided from Google Pay like the shopper's billing address, shipping address, and the contact information in the response.
