First Public Working Draft of Payment Request API Specifications

The Web Payments Working Group has published First Public Working Drafts of the following specifications. These are the first of a suite of specifications to make payments on the Web easier and more secure.

  • Payment Request API, which describes a web API to allow merchants (i.e., web sites selling physical or digital goods) to easily accept payments through different payment methods with minimal integration.
  • Basic Card Payment describes the data formats used by the Payment
    Request API to support payment by payment cards such as credit or
    debit cards.
  • Payment Method Identifiers defines payment method identifier strings so that components in the payment ecosystem can determine which parties support which payment methods.

The Working Group published a FAQ and welcomes feedback on these early drafts.
