Firefox/Features/Web Payments

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The Payment Request API makes online purchases easier without having to manually fill personal and payment information for every purchase. Together with the form autofill feature, it saves user's time and effort when making online purchases by storing their personal and payment information in Firefox to be used when a merchant requests payment. The Payment Request UI provides consistency across merchant sites.

The Payment Handler API builds upon Payment Request by providing a pluggable protocol (based on service workers) which facilitates purchasing through third party payment providers. Payment Handlers allows web-based payment applications to act as Payment Request payment methods which can be integrated into merchant websites.
