Payment by QR code

Attention. This is an old version of the API. Switch to the Yandex.Checkout API.

This is another payment scenario using Yandex.Checkout. It allows the merchant to generate QR codes that link to the payment form. The QR codes can be displayed in the internet or printed on flat surfaces, such as bills and receipts. To set up payment using a QR code, the merchant must create a payment link and then generate the QR code that will link to it.

Interaction flow

  1. The merchant generates a QR code to pay for a specific order, and shows it to the user (online or offline).
  2. The user scans the QR code in any smartphone app and then sees the payment form for this order.
  3. The user pays for the order.
  4. The merchant gets a notification of payment, the same way as in the standard scenario.
