Elements
Learn how to customize and stylize elements to seamlessly integrate them into your user experience or purchase flow.‌
An Element is a UI component that DigitalRiver.js creates to collect sensitive customer information without having the data touch your servers. You can customize and stylize these components to seamlessly integrate into your user experience or purchase flow. The library collects and tokenizes the data contained in these elements without exposing you to PCI-compliance liability.‌

element.mount();

Use this function to place the created elements on your page. The function accepts an identifier of a container div. The library will load the created element within the specified container.
Example
1
<form id="payment-form">
2
<div id="card-number"></div>
3
<div id="card-expiration"></div>
4
<div id="card-cvv"></div>
5
<button type="submit">Submit</button>
6
</form>
