Configuring Credit Cards

Learn how to configure Credit Cards for DigitalRiver.js with Elements.

If you're using DigitalRiver.js with Elements, you can create a Credit Card payment method for your app or website in three easy steps:

Step 1: Build a Credit Card source request object

The Credit Card Source Request object requires the following fields.





The payment session identifier.


Step 2: Create a Credit Card source using DigitalRiver.js

Create the elements

Use the DigitalRiver.js library to create and mount elements to the HTML container.

var options = {
        style: {
        base: {
            color: "#fff",
            fontFamily: "Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif",
            fontSize: "16px",
//Create your elements
var cardNumber = digitalriver.createElement('cardnumber', options);
var cardExpiration = digitalriver.createElement("cardexpiration", options);
var cardCVV = digitalriver.createElement("cardcvv", options);
//Place the created elements on the page.

Create the source

To create a credit card payment source, you must reference the created element and the supplemental data in your createSource request. DigitalRiver.js will retrieve and assemble the request on your behalf.

The address object must contain postal code and state/province data that adheres to a standardized format.

var payload = {
    "type": "creditCard",
    "sessionId": "69a47e2c-f8b3-4173-9c0d-40332abcaf98",    
    "owner": {
        firstName: "John",
        lastName: "Doe",
        email: "",
        phoneNumber: "000-000-0000",
        address: {
            line1: "10380 Bren Road West",
            line2: "Suite 123",
            city: "Minnetonka",
            state: "MN",
            postalCode: "55343",
            country: "US"

    digitalriver.createSource(cardCVV,payload).then(function(result) {
            if(result.error) {
                //handle errors
            } else {
                var source = result.source;
                //send source to back end
