Obtain Partner access token

“Partner access token” is used as authentication for all further communication with the Checkout 3.0 Backend API. This token should never be displayed to the user or sent to the frontend of the application.

To obtain the token send POST request with clientId and clientSecret as a JSON to /api/partner/tokens.

# Obtain Partner access token
curl -X "POST ${api_url}/api/partner/tokens" \
	-H 'Content-type: application/json' \
    -H 'Accept: application/json' \
    -d  '{ "clientId": "659e57c9-d970-4db8-b003-8ba04cc157f9", "clientSecret": "4~{x*6%gvBt(:aD" }'

Payload:

PropertyData type
clientIdstring
clientSecretstring

Example

<?php
$api_url = "https://avdonl-s-checkout.avarda.org";
// Use your CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET
$client_id = "659e57c9-d970-4db8-b003-8ba04cc157f9";
$client_secret = "4~{x*6%gvBt(:aD";

// Send POST request and save "Partner access token"
$request_url = "$api_url/api/partner/tokens";
$request_payload = array('clientId' => $client_id, 'clientSecret' => $client_secret);

$options = array(
    'http' => array(
        'header'  => "Content-type: application/json\r\n",
        'method'  => 'POST',
        'content' => json_encode($request_payload)
    )
);

$context = stream_context_create($options);
$result = file_get_contents($request_url, false, $context);
if ($result === false) { /* Handle error */
} else {
    $json_data = json_decode($result);
    $partner_access_token = $json_data->token;
    echo (string) $partner_access_token;
};

Return Value

{
    "token": "eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGc...",
    "tokenExpirationUtc": "2020-01-01T09:24:42.2011052Z"
}

Initialize payment

Initialize payment and set up initial parameters such as: language; items list; etc. Please check the full list of options below.

Send a POST request with “Partner access token” as authorization with JSON data. Successful initialization returns a unique “Purchase JWT token” and “PurchaseId”. “Purchase JWT token” is used to display Checkout 3.0 form on the frontend of your application. “PurchaseId” is used in other Checkout 3.0 Backend API calls.

# Initialize a new payment
POST {api_url}/api/partner/payments
Content-type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer {partner_access_token}
