If you use M1 MacBook, you need to make these changes in your podfile.

Step 1: Create an Order in Server🔗

Order is an important step in the payment process. Orders and payments go hand-in-hand. For every payment, an order needs to be created. It is compulsory to create orders to capture payments automatically.

You can create an order using the Orders API. It is a server-to-server call that is secured by basic auth using your API keys.

Pass the order_id received in the Orders API response to Checkout. This ties the Order with the payment and secures the request from being tampered.

Sample Code🔗

The following is a sample API request and response for creating an order:

Copycurl -X POST https://api.razorpay.com/v1/orders -u <YOUR_KEY_ID>:<YOUR_SECRET> -H 'content-type:application/json' -d '{ "amount": 50000, "currency": "INR", "receipt": "rcptid_11" }'
Copytry { JSONObject orderRequest = new JSONObject(); orderRequest.put("amount", 50000); // amount in the smallest currency unit orderRequest.put("currency", "INR"); orderRequest.put("receipt", "order_rcptid_11"); Order order = razorpay.Orders.create(orderRequest); } catch (RazorpayException e) { // Handle Exception System.out.println(e.getMessage()); }
Copyimport razorpay client = razorpay.Client(auth=("api_key", "api_secret")) DATA = { "amount": 100, "currency": "INR", "receipt": "receipt#1", "notes": { "key1": "value3", "key2": "value2" } } client.order.create(data=DATA)
Copy$order = $client->order->create([ 'receipt' => 'order_rcptid_11', 'amount' => 50000, // amount in the smallest currency unit 'currency' => 'INR'// <a href="/docs/international-payments/#supported-currencies" target="_blank">See the list of supported currencies</a>.) ]);
CopyDictionary<string, object> options = new Dictionary<string,object>(); options.Add("amount", 50000); // amount in the smallest currency unit options.add("receipt", "order_rcptid_11"); options.add("currency", "INR"); Order order = client.Order.Create(options);
Copyoptions = amount: 50000, currency: 'INR', receipt: '<order_rcptid_11>' order = Razorpay::Order.create
Copyvar options = { amount: 50000, // amount in the smallest currency unit currency: "INR", receipt: "order_rcptid_11" }; instance.orders.create(options, function(err, order) { console.log(order); });
Copy{ "id": "order_DBJOWzybf0sJbb", "entity": "order", "amount": 50000, "amount_paid": 0, "amount_due": 50000, "currency": "INR", "receipt": "rcptid_11", "status": "created", "attempts": 0, "notes": [], "created_at": 1566986570 }


Here is the list of parameters for creating the order:

amount mandatory
integer The transaction amount, expressed in the currency subunit, such as paise (in case of INR). For example, for an actual amount of ₹299.35, the value of this field should be 29935.
currency mandatory
string The currency in which the transaction should be made. See the list of supported currencies. Length must be of 3 characters.
receipt optional
string Your receipt id for this order should be passed here. Maximum length 40 characters.
notes optional
json object Key-value pair that can be used to store additional information about the entity. Maximum 15 key-value pairs, 256 characters (maximum) each. For example, "note_key": "Beam me up Scotty”.
partial_payment optional
boolean Indicates whether the customer can make a partial payment. Possible values:
  • true - The customer can make partial payments.
  • false (default) - The customer cannot make partial payments.

Step 2: Install the Razorpay Capacitor Plugin🔗

Run the following command on your command prompt to install the plugin:

Copynpm i -S https://github.com/razorpay/razorpay-capacitor.git #installs plugin that supports Capacitor 3.0

Watch Out!
We recommend you to use the latest plugin version (that works on Capacitor 3.0) as all the latest features will be made available only on this version. However, if you want to use the plugin that works on Capacitor 2.0, use the command given below:

Copynpm install —save https://github.com/razorpay/razorpay-capacitor.git#596df6b7088b31b9f272b9d904fc90bea8815702 #installs plugin that supports Capacitor 2.0

Please note that the latest Razorpay features will not be available on this version.

Step 3: Add the Checkout class in MainActivity.java (Android Only)🔗

Add the Checkout class to the ArrayList in the MainActivity class in {{projectDir}}/android/src/main/MainActivity.java. The sample code is given below:

Copyimport com.ionicframework.capacitor.Checkout; public class MainActivity extends BridgeActivity { @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); registerPlugin(Checkout.class); } }

Watch Out!
If you are using Capacitor 2.0, use the code given below:

Copyimport com.ionicframework.capacitor.Checkout; public class MainActivity extends BridgeActivity { @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); // Initializes the Bridge this.init(savedInstanceState, new ArrayList<Class<? extends Plugin>>() {{ // Additional plugins you've installed go here // Ex: add(TotallyAwesomePlugin.class); add(Checkout.class); }}); } }

Update Android Variables🔗

Capacitor 3 supports Android 11 (API 30), so you can update your SDK target to 30. Change compileSdkVersion and targetSdkVersion to 30 in the android/variables.gradle file.

Enable UPI Intent on iOS🔗

Provide your customers a better payment experience by enabling UPI Intent on your app's Checkout form. In the UPI Intent flow:

  • Customer selects UPI as the payment method in your iOS app. A list of UPI apps supporting the intent flow is displayed. For example, PhonePe, Google Pay and Paytm.
  • Customer selects their preferred app. The UPI app opens with pre-populated payment details.
  • Customer enters their UPI PIN to complete their transactions.
  • Once the payment is successful, the customer is redirected to your app or website.

To enable this in your iOS integration, you must make the following changes in your app's info.plist file.

Copy<key>LSApplicationQueriesSchemes</key> <array> <string>tez</string> <string>phonepe</string> <string>paytmmp</string> </array>

Know more about UPI Intent and its benefits.

Step 5: Store Fields in Server🔗

A successful payment returns the following fields to the Checkout Form. Make provisions to store these fields on your server. You can confirm the authenticity of these details by verifying the signature in the next step.

Copy{ "razorpay_payment_id": "pay_29QQoUBi66xm2f", "razorpay_order_id": "order_9A33XWu170gUtm", "razorpay_signature": "9ef4dffbfd84f1318f6739a3ce19f9d85851857ae648f114332d8401e0949a3d" }
string Unique identifier for the payment returned by Checkout only for successful payments.
string Unique identifier for the order returned by Checkout.
string Signature returned by the Checkout. This is used to verify the payment.

Step 6: Verify Payment Signature🔗

This is a mandatory step that allows you to confirm the authenticity of the details returned to the Checkout form for successful payments.

To verify the razorpay_signature returned to you by the Checkout form:

  1. Create a signature in your server using the following attributes:

    • order_id - Retrieve the order_id from your server. Do not use the razorpay_order_id returned by Checkout.
    • razorpay_payment_id - Returned by Checkout.
    • key_secret - Available in your server.
      The key_secret that was generated from the Razorpay Dashboard.
  2. Use the SHA256 algorithm, the razorpay_payment_id and the order_id to construct a HMAC hex digest as shown below:

    Copygenerated_signature = hmac_sha256(order_id + "|" + razorpay_payment_id, secret); if (generated_signature == razorpay_signature) { payment is successful }
  3. If the signature you generate on your server matches the razorpay_signature returned to you by the Checkout form, the payment received is from an authentic source.

Generate Signature on Your Server🔗

The links to the Razorpay SDKs for the supported platforms are given below:













Copy/** * This class defines common routines for generating * authentication signatures for Razorpay Webhook requests. */ public class Signature { private static final String HMAC_SHA256_ALGORITHM = "HmacSHA256"; /** * Computes RFC 2104-compliant HMAC signature. * * @param data * The data to be signed. * @param key * The signing key. * @return * The Base64-encoded RFC 2104-compliant HMAC signature. * @throws * java.security.SignatureException when signature generation fails */ public static String calculateRFC2104HMAC(String data, String secret) throws java.security.SignatureException { String result; try { // get an hmac_sha256 key from the raw secret bytes SecretKeySpec signingKey = new SecretKeySpec(secret.getBytes(), HMAC_SHA256_ALGORITHM); // get an hmac_sha256 Mac instance and initialize with the signing key Mac mac = Mac.getInstance(HMAC_SHA256_ALGORITHM); mac.init(signingKey); // compute the hmac on input data bytes byte[] rawHmac = mac.doFinal(data.getBytes()); // base64-encode the hmac result = DatatypeConverter.printHexBinary(rawHmac).toLowerCase(); } catch (Exception e) { throw new SignatureException("Failed to generate HMAC : " + e.getMessage()); } return result; } }
Copyuse Razorpay\Api\Api; $api = new Api($key_id, $key_secret); $attributes = array('razorpay_signature' => '23233', 'razorpay_payment_id' => '332' , 'razorpay_order_id' => '12122'); $order = $api->utility->verifyPaymentSignature($attributes)
Copyrequire 'razorpay' Razorpay.setup('key_id', 'key_secret') payment_response = { 'razorpay_order_id': '12122', 'razorpay_payment_id': '332', 'razorpay_signature': '23233' } Razorpay::Utility.verify_payment_signature(payment_response)
Copyimport razorpay client = razorpay.Client(auth = ('[key_id]', '[key_secret]')) params_dict = { 'razorpay_order_id': '12122', 'razorpay_payment_id': '332', 'razorpay_signature': '23233' } client.utility.verify_payment_signature(params_dict)
Copy Dictionary<string, string> attributes = new Dictionary<string, string>(); attributes.Add("razorpay_payment_id", paymentId); attributes.Add("razorpay_order_id", Request.Form["razorpay_order_id"]); attributes.Add("razorpay_signature", Request.Form["razorpay_signature"]); Utils.verifyPaymentSignature(attributes);

Post Signature Verification🔗

After verifying the signature, fetch the order in your system that corresponds to the razorpay_order_id in your database. Mark it as successful and process the order.

M1 MacBook Changes🔗

If you use M1 MacBook, you need to make the following changes in your podfile.

Copy post_install do |installer| installer.pods_project.build_configurations.each do |config| config.build_settings["EXCLUDED_ARCHS[sdk=iphonesimulator*]"] = "arm64" end End

Test Integration🔗

After the integration is complete, you need to test the integration to ensure that it is working as expected. You can make a test transaction using the test cards, verify the payment status from the Razorpay Dashboard or through APIs or subscribe to related Webhook events to take appropriate actions at your end. After testing the integration in test mode, you can start accepting actual payments from your customers.

Test Payments🔗

You can make test payments using any of the payment methods configured at the Checkout. No money is deducted from the customer's account as this is a simulated transaction. In the Checkout code, ensure that you have entered the API keys generated in the test mode.

Test Cards🔗

You can use any of the test cards to make transactions in the test mode. Use any valid expiration date in the future and any random CVV to create a successful payment.

Handy Tips
UPI payments should be tested in Live Mode.

Verify Payment Status🔗

You can track the status of the payment from the Razorpay Dashboard, subscribe to the Webhook event or poll our APIs.

From Dashboard🔗

  1. Log into the Dashboard and navigate to Transactions → Payments.
  2. Check if a payment_ID has been generated. If no payment_ID has been generated, it means that the transaction has failed.

Subscribe to Webhook events🔗

You can subscribe to a Webhook event that is generated when a certain event happens in our server. When one of those events is triggered, Razorpay sends the Webhook payload to the configured URL. Know how to set up Webhooks.

Poll APIs🔗

You can retrieve the status of the payments by polling our Payment APIs.

Accept Live Payments🔗

After testing the flow of funds end-to-end in test mode and confident that the integration is working as expected, switch to the live mode and start accepting payments from customers. However, make sure that you swap the test API keys with the live keys.

To generate API key in live mode:

  1. Log into Dashboard and switch to Live mode on the menu.
  2. Navigate to Settings → API Keys → Generate Key to generate API key for live mode.
  3. Download the keys and save them securely.
  4. Replace the test API key with the Live Key in the Checkout code and start accepting actual payments.


The transaction timeout is applicable only when your customer attempts the payment.

The timeout is 3 to 15 minutes for an attempted payment. If there is a payment failure due to timeout, the customer is redirected to the Checkout page.

Address Verification System🔗

If you are accepting international payments, you can use Razorpay's Address Verification System (AVS). AVS verifies if a customer's billing address (postal code and the billing street address) matches the billing address on file with the card issuer. Based on the response from the issuer, Razorpay will accept or cancel the transaction. This helps in the prevention of fraud in international payments.
