Handling 3D Secure

The module allows you to handle 3D Secure URLs within your mobile app.

When you send a 3D Secure charge request from your server, you will get back a 3D Secure URL. You can then pass the 3D Secure URL to the module to handle the verification.

// success
}
@Override
public void onError(String errorMessage) {
// fail
}
};

'https://example.com/success', // the Redirection URL

}
@Override
public void onError(GooglePayTokenisationFail error) {
// fail
