Typical Scenarios

Paysafecash Payment

When you want to process a payment request using Paysafecash as the payment type, you would do the following:

  1. Create a Payment Handle with the transactionType parameter set to PAYMENT and the paymentType parameter set to PAYSAFECASH.
  2. Since the customer has to complete payment authentication by providing Paysafecash details, Paysafe returns a response with the following:
    • The action parameter is set to REDIRECT
    • A payment_redirect link points to the Paysafecash redirect URL
  3. Redirect the customer to the Paysafecash redirect URL so they can generate a bar code.
  4. Upon successful bar-code generation, the status of the Payment Handle becomes PAYABLE. The merchant gets notified of this status change via webhooks that have been configured.
  5. Use the paymentHandleToken returned in the response to process the Payment request. The Payment will have a status of PENDING until the customer has made the payment.

Once the Payment request is successfully completed, the merchant gets notified via webhooks and the funds are immediately transferred to the merchant's account.

Paysafecash Withdrawal

  1. Create a Payment Handle with the transactionType parameter set to STANDALONE_CREDIT and the paymentType parameter set to PAYSAFECASH.
  2. This Payment Handle should immediately have the status of PAYABLE
  3. Use the paymentHandleToken returned in the response to process the Withdrawal request.

Once the Payment request is successfully completed, the funds are immediately transferred to the customer's account.

Testing Instructions

Test Customer Id Values

Customer ID is also known as "Merchant Client ID", is an important parameter for the integration of paysafecard. The Customer ID identifies the Customer on our business partners side. The most optimal customer ID is a completely random value. A value that uniquely identifies the customer and is disconnected from any personal information. This customer ID value should be the same for all transactions of the customer. Here are Guidelines for possible Customer IDs:
