About Google Pay

What is Google Pay


Logo
Info

Google Pay is the fast, simple way to pay on sites, in apps and in stores using the cards saved to your Google Account. It protects your payment info with multiple layers of security and makes it easy to send money, store tickets or cash in on rewards – all from one convenient place.

TypePayments by eWallet


Notice: Regarding the liability shift in case of the card processing, please contact your Acquirer directly. Because Computop is not a direct contract partner, your Acquirer should specify the liability shift rules for each card brand.

How it works

When a user taps the Google Pay payment button, they see a payment sheet. It displays the payment methods they've saved to their Google Account and optional fields such as a shipping address. Users can then select a payment method quickly and provide a shipping address if required, or they can add new information.

In-app payment

The Google Pay API enables fast, simple checkout within your app, giving you convenient access to hundreds of millions of cards saved to Google Accounts worldwide.

These above screens represent a recommended Google Pay buy flow for a shopping cart experience.

These guidelines will help you implement Google Pay within your apps: https://developers.google.com/pay/api/android/guides/brand-guidelines.


Web payment

The Google Pay API enables fast, simple checkout on your website. This provides convenient access to hundreds of millions of cards that are saved to Google Accounts worldwide.

The above screens represent a recommended Google Pay buy flow for a shopping cart experience.

These guidelines will help you reference the Google Pay brand within your websites: https://developers.google.com/pay/api/web/guides/brand-guidelines.

Step by Step Set-Up Guide

Once you have decided to support Google Pay, there is a set of steps that need to be done. This guide is applicable for both, in-app and also web payments.

1. Verify if your Acquirer supports Google Pay, for the card networks supported and support for Android device tokens.

This information will be provided by Computop support team: Computop Helpdesk.


2. If you already do not have one, request creation of Computop Merchant ID, unique identifier that represents a merchant in Computop Paygate platform. You need to use Computop Merchant ID also in Google Pay API.

Please contact Computop support team: Computop Helpdesk.


3. Integrate Google Pay API: https://developers.google.com/pay/api/.

Apps: https://developers.google.com/pay/api/android/overview 

Web: https://developers.google.com/pay/api/web/overview


a. For payment tokenization method, choose “GATEWAY”, with following values:


const tokenizationSpecification = {

  type: “PAYMENT GATEWAY”,

  parameters: {

    'gateway': 'computop',

    'gatewayMerchantId': 'yourComputopMerchantID'

  }


b. For supported payment card networks, choose the ones your acquirer is supporting:

const allowedCardNetworks = ["AMEX", "DISCOVER", "JCB", "MASTERCARD", "VISA"];


c. The Google Pay API may return cards on file on Google.com (PAN_ONLY) and/or a device token on an Android device authenticated with a 3-D Secure cryptogram (CRYPTOGRAM_3DS).

Please make sure that you define CRYPTOGRAM_3DS only if your acquirer is supporting this functionality. Please contact Computop Helpdesk to verify this point if needed.

const allowedCardAuthMethods = ["PAN_ONLY", "CRYPTOGRAM_3DS"];

If you are operating in EEA region, please define CRYPTOGRAM_3DS only, as these payments are already Strong Customer Authenticated in Google Pay wallet and therefore compliant with PSD2 SCA regulation.

Note: If you receive Soft Decline in Response, you need to restart the payment with 3-D Secure authentication.


d. In response from Google Pay API, you should receive Token similar to this:

}

You need to Base64 encode the whole token string and include it in Paygate parameter TokenExt.

Calling the interface

Two transactions are created when making a credit card payment via Google Pay. In the Google Pay transaction the required credit card data are determined first and the actual credit card transaction is then carried out automatically. This takes place via a server-to-server connection and supports all usual credit card transaction options. The difference here, however, is that you don't transmit the credit card information, which you don't know. Instead, you transmit the Token generated by Google Pay, which contains the required credit card data in encrypted form.

In order to make a credit card payment with Google Pay, please use the following URL:


Notice: For security reasons, Computop Paygate rejects all payment requests with formatting errors. Therefore, please use the correct data type for each parameter.

The following table describes the encrypted payment request parameters:

In addition you can submit any parameters that are applicable or required for a credit card payment (without credit card data). More information about this you can find within Card processing.

Oops, it seems that you need to place a table or a macro generating a table within the Table Filter macro.

The table is being loaded. Please wait for a bit ...

Complete URL which Paygate calls up in order to notify the shop about the payment result. The URL may be called up only via port 443. It may not contain parameters: Use the UserData parameter instead.

(info) Common notes:

  • We recommend to use parameter "response=encrypt" to get an encrypted response by Paygate
  • However, fraudster may just copy the encrypted DATA-element which are sent to URLFailure and send the DATA to URLSuccess/URLNotify. Therefore ensure to check the "code"-value which indicates success/failure of the action. Only a result of "code=00000000" should be considered successful.

Vollständige URL, die das Paygate aufruft, um den Shop zu benachrichtigen. Die URL darf nur über Port 443 aufgerufen werden. Sie darf keine Parameter enthalten: Nutzen Sie stattdessen den Parameter UserData.

(info) Allgemeine Hinweise:

  • Wir empfehlen, den Parameter "response=encrypt" zu verwenden, um eine verschlüsselte Antwort von Paygate zu erhalten
  • Betrüger könnten das verschlüsselte DATA-Element kopieren, welches an URLFailure gesendet wurde, und betrügerisch dasselbe DATA an URLSuccess/URLNotify senden. Überprüfen Sie daher unbedingt den "code"-Wert des DATA-Elements. Nur eine Antwort mit "code=00000000" sollte als erfolgreich angesehen werden.
