13 June 2024
Checkout
Enhancement
ApplicationsSDK

The Payment Only mode is now available in public beta. With the Payment Only mode, you can integrate only the payment functionality of commercetools Checkout without changing the existing checkout flow on your storefront.
In fact, the mode lets you take advantage of Checkout's secure and seamless payment capabilities without having to adjust other elements of your existing checkout experience, such as address forms or success and failure pages.

To use Checkout in Payment Only mode, you need to:

  • Create at least one Application of the Payment Only type.
  • Call the paymentFlow SDK method to initialize Checkout.

If required, you can create Applications of both the Payment Only type and the Complete checkout type for the same Project but for different countries or URLs.

Checkout
New feature

Checkout Payments API is now available in public beta. This new feature lets you easily manage actions on payments, such as payment capture, refund, and authorization cancellation.

Following your request via the Checkout Payments API, Checkout will request the payment service provider (PSP) to perform the related financial process to capture or refund a given amount to the customer, or to cancel the authorization for a payment. This saves you time and effort in managing payment operations.
