paytmCaptureImageFromCamera JS API

Use Case

This bridge when invoked (assuming that camera permissions are already granted), opens the camera. Once the user clicks a picture, passes data to the web context. To enable the Camera functionality for your PWA in Android, you need to implement this JS API Bridge. Without this implementation, camera functionality might not work as intended.

 

Note:

  • In iOS, no implementation is needed and web methods to invoke/use camera will work.
  • In Android, the merchant must call paytmCheckPermission JS API & paytmRequestPermission JS API to check if camera permission is granted or not before calling paytmCaptureImageFromCamera.
