Create a payment notification

How to create a payment notification.

Overview

Payment notifications take advantage of our Smart Checkout solution, along with all the features and all payment methods it offers.

You can create payment notifications either via Self Care or via our API. Furthermore, if a payment notification is created via our API, you have the option to either let Viva Wallet send the payment notification via email to the customer, or you could send the payment notification on your own to the customer (via email or otherwise, e.g. chat app).

Keep in mind that payment notifications support various payment features, such as:

Payment notifications through Self Care

You can send payment notifications through SelfCare, following the steps described here.

Payment notifications through API and sent to customer by Viva Wallet

You can create a payment notification by creating a payment order and setting the paymentNotification parameter to true, and thus have Viva Wallet send the payment notification via email to the customer. Refer to this link on how to create a payment order.

You should use OAuth2 authentication method.

The below example creates a payment notification and sends it to the mentioned email address.
