POS Activation

The client app must implement a mechanism to send messages using Android intents and URI calls and to receive the result in a custom URI callback.

POS Activation request

With the POS Activation action the user can activate the POS. For a typical POS activation request the client app must provide the following information:

Field Description Example
scheme The Viva's custom URL scheme, the host and the version. 'vivapayclient://pay/v1'
appId The client app ID. For successful validation, should not be empty. 'com.example.myapp'
action Activate POS action. For successful validation, should not be empty. 'activatePos'
callback The URI callback that will handle the result. For successful validation, should not be empty. 'mycallbackscheme://result'
apikey The API key required for the POS activation. For successful validation, should not be empty. “qwerty123456“
apiSecret The API secret required for the POS activation. For successful validation, should not be empty. “qwerty123456“
sourceID The source that POS will be assigned to. Not required for succesfull validation. If not provided “Default” source will be used “qwerty123456“
pinCode Optional parameter for PIN code for settings lock (if provided, settings are automatically locked and PIN set to the supplied value). 123142
activateMoto Optional boolean parameter for activating Moto payment method. The default value = false

Example = false
activateQRCodes Optional boolean parameter for activating QR payment method. The default value = false

Example = false

The above information elements must create a URI call, i.e.

// USE LIKE THIS
    func activatePos() {
                let url =  "vivapayclient://pay/v1"
                                       + "&appId=com.example.myapp"
                                       + "&action=activatePos"
                                       + "&apikey=qwerty123456"
                                       + "&apiSecret=qwerty123456"
                                       + "&sourceID=qwerty123456"
                                       + "&pinCode=1234"
                                       + "&activateMoto=true"
                                       + "&activateQRCodes=true"
                                       + "&callback=mycallbackscheme://result"

         (UIApplication.shared.delegate as? AppDelegate)?.performInterAppRequest(
            request: url)
    }

POS Activation response

After executing a POS activation, the Card Terminal App responds with a POS activation response result to indicate if the POS activation was successfull or not.

The result is received as a URI in the application(_:open:options:) method on the AppDelegate file:

The table below summarizes the contents of an approved response.

Field Description Example
callback The URI callback that will handle the result. 'mycallbackscheme://result'
status The status of the transaction. 'success'
message A string containing information about the transaction status. 'Transaction successful'
action Activate POS action. 'activatePos'
virtualId App FirebaseId '60DEC5165EBC41DEAAE693FD51B1F3FC'
sourceTerminalId Connected Terminal Id - optional '16027706'
merchantID Activated Merchant Id - optional ‘c21ac4b3-b1e1-4e7c-a65e-aedee7412321’

A POS activation response result for an approved transaction looks as follows:

It is expected that POS activation will fail for various reasons. A POS activation response looks as follows:
