Typical Scenarios

Boleto Bancario Payment

When you want to process a payment request using Boleto Bancario 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 one of the following value: BOLETO_BANCARIO

  2. Redirect the customer to the SafetyPay redirect URL so they can generate a payment code. The status of the Payment Handle becomes PAYABLE. The merchant gets notified of this status change via webhooks that have been configured.

  3. Use the paymentHandleToken returned in the response to process the Payment request. The Payment will have a status of PROCESSING until the customer has made the payment.

Once the Payment is successfully completed by customer online, the merchant gets Payment Completed notification via webhooks.
