    Checkout

    Checkout allows you to accept payments online with just one link. It is a hosted payment form that supports payment cards, Masterpass and Visa Checkout wallets and Interac Online. You can link to Checkout from your website or from an email, allowing it to slot into either a shopping cart flow or an invoicing flow.

    This guide will show you how to create a form and a link before sending it out to clients, customers, and donors.

    Example

    A common use of Checkout would involve hosting a link or a button on your own website that would then redirect the user to the Checkout product hosted on Bambora's services.

    Try it out! Click the "Pay" button below. You can use using the test card number 4030 0000 1000 1234, with a security code 123 and any expiry date in the future. Checkout will open in a new tab.

    Custom Checkout vs Checkout

    Checkout is an alternative to building your own payment form with Custom Checkout.

    • Both solutions are PCI SAQ A compliant.
    • Checkout is a payment form - it takes payments. Custom Checkout is a tokenizaton library - it returns a token that you can pass to the Payment API to take a payment.
    • Checkout involves redirecting the user to a payment form on bambora.com. Custom Checkout embeds Bambora hosted input fields in your webpage.
    • Checkout is brandable - you can set the primary color, a custom header and a custom footer. Custom Checkout allows you to build a fully customized payment form - you retain as much control over UI/UX as you do with native DOM elements.

    Migration

    Checkout enhances our legacy Hosted Payment Form. Accounts opened after 1 August 2017 come with Checkout. If your account predates this, you will need to enable Checkout styling on your account.

    You can enable Checkout styling on your legacy Hosted Payment Form in the Member Area. Click on configuration, and select payment form. Simply copy and paste these two blocks of code into the corresponding text fields.
