The MerchantValidationEvent interface of the the Payment Request API enables a merchant to verify themselves as allowed to use a particular payment handler.

To learn more about merchant validation, see Merchant validation in Payment processing concepts.

Constructor

MerchantValidationEvent() Secure context
Creates a new MerchantValidationEvent object describing a merchantvalidation event that will be sent to the payment handler to request that it validate the merchant.

Properties

MerchantValidationEvent.methodName Secure context
A DOMString providing a unique payment method identifier for the payment handler that's requiring validation. This may be either one of the standard payment method identifier strings or a URL that both identifies and handles requests for the payment handler, such as https://apple.com/apple-pay.
MerchantValidationEvent.validationURL Secure context
A USVString specifying a URL from which the site or app can fetch payment handler specific validation information. Once this data is retrieved, the data (or a promise resolving to the validation data) should be passed into complete() to validate that the payment request is coming from an authorized merchant.

Methods

MerchantValidationEvent.complete() Secure context
Pass the data retrieved from the URL specified by validationURL into complete() to complete the validation process for the PaymentRequest.
