Play+ (Sightline)

The Paysafe Payments API supports Play+ (Sightline) as a Payment Instrument. You can process Sightline payments using the Payments API.

Typical Scenarios

Sightline Payment

When you want to process a Play+ (Sightline) payment request, you would do the following:

  1. Create a Payment Handle with the transactionType parameter set to PAYMENT and the paymentType parameter set to SIGHTLINE.
  2. Since Sightline is supported only via a hosted page, Paysafe returns a response with the following:
    • The action parameter is set to REDIRECT
    • A payment_redirect link that points to the Play+ hosted page URL
  3. You can either embed the hosted page within your own custom checkout solution or redirect the customer to the hosted page URL on a different tab.
  4. Interactions on the hosted page are handled by Paysafe and on successful payment, we will notify you on the on_completed parameter included with your request.
  5. At this point, the status of the Payment Handle becomes PAYABLE.
  6. Use the paymentHandleToken returned in the response to process the Payment request.

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

  3. Use the paymentHandleToken returned in the response to process the Withdrawal request.
