We are pleased to inform after months of work our new API 2.0 is being released on 20.01.2021
Included in this release we will hand back a payment URL to the merchant so you can display payment details instantly to clients on your website.

  • Improved end point for check transaction status
  • Improved call back notifications
  • New notification url parameter to receive transaction changes
  • New API end points
    • Customer payout end point
    • Refund end point.
    • Single Transaction history end point

Documentation of the new API can be found here:

For support email: support@howtopay.com

 

This operates in a similar way to PayPal that it will open in a new page and client can complete the payment details without needing the email. While we still as a backup send the details and receipt on email to the client now they will get the information directly while still on your website.

 

Please note the current API will continue to operate and is not effected by the release of the new 2.0 API.

 

A number of other features have been added as was requested by our clients. Full details including sample scripts are available from within your online dashboard when you login to www.howtopay.com

 

Additional WordPress / WooCommerce plugins are now also available.

 

Additional QR Code payments so our 1.6 million existing Digital wallet mobile clients will be able to make instant payments from wallet balances.
