The above alternative payment methods are asynchronous in principle, meaning that it may take up to several days to confirm whether the payment has been successful, although in the typical case the payment is confirmed almost immediately. Until the payment is confirmed as successful or failed, the payment will be indicated as pending. You need to use webhooks so that we inform you when the payment is confirmed as successful or failed.

If you wish to accept payments online by offering these alternative payment methods, contact your Viva Wallet sales representative who will start the on-boarding process for you. Alternatively, you can contact us directly via our live chat facility. Simply click on the live chat icon in the bottom right-hand corner of this page.
