Set your desired payment method

Using Smart Checkout, you have the option to indicate to your customers, your desired preselected payment method. Alongside, your customers have the option to select to pay with any other payment methods. You simply append the query parameter paymentMethod to the Smart Checkout’s URL as the below example:

https://demo.vivapayments.com/web/checkout?ref={OrderCode}&paymentMethod={MethodId}

MethodId Payment Method
0 (default) Credit Card
23 PayPal

If the paymentMethod parameter value is null or is not valid or is missing, then the default value (Credit Card) will apply.
