Integration types

Paytm Custom UI SDK can be integrated into two ways:


Integration Type 1 - Merchant links Paytm user's account without OTP

In this integration, merchants can link the Paytm user account through one-time consent. After the consent you can retrieve and present the following instruments on your checkout page as per your theme and design:

  • Paytm Wallet and Postpaid
  • Saved Cards of Paytm users
  • UPI linked bank accounts

In order to present these on your checkout page, you need to get approval for a couple of additional parameters such as client id and client secret key. Please contact your account manager or click here to apply for the same. For this integration type, please refer to the following steps:

  1. SDK initialisation
  2. Paytm account linking
  3. Transaction processing
  4. Optional methods integration
Note: Client id and client secret key along with Paytm user’s SSO token should not be shared with anyone.

Integration Type 2 - Merchant invokes Paytm app for user's saved instruments 

In this integration type, a merchant can simply invoke the Paytm app for the transactions processing through Paytm user's instruments such as wallet, postpaid, saved cards and bank accounts. For this integration type, please refer to the following steps:

  1. SDK initialisation
  2. Transaction processing
  3. Optional methods integration
