Introduction 

Depending on your business needs, you may want to accept card payments. We accept payments via Visa, Electron, MasterCard and Maestro in euros (EUR) only. You can set different type of payments to match your business requirements, even combining them in the same Checkout session.

Create a payment

In-session payment

You can invite your customer to our Checkout, allowing them to enter their payment information, without storing these.

You need to create an order, containing a payment item, with the flag capture set to True.

Off-session payment

If you have already registered a card alias containing your customer's card information, you can use this card alias to trigger payments via our API, without the customer having to go through the Checkout process.

  • via SlimPay API: You need to create a payment, specifying the card alias reference you have stored within SlimPay or the associated subscriber reference. Set the flag capture set to True.
  • via SlimPay Dashboard: Go to the Card aliases page, select your customer's card alias. You'll have the option to create a payment on this alias.
