Get available payment methods when previewing prices or transactions

See which payment methods are valid for the prices and location passed to a price preview or a transaction preview.

What's new?

We added a new available_payment_methods array to transaction preview and pricing preview responses from the API.

available_payment_methodsarray[string]

List of available payment methods for Paddle Checkout given the price and location information passed.

How it works

Paddle lets you accept cards, digital wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay, and local payment methods like iDEAL and Alipay out-of-the-box. You can turn on new payment methods in a couple of clicks in the Paddle dashboard, with no need to sign up for multiple merchant accounts or partner with different platforms.

Some payment methods are only available for certain countries or currencies, and for certain kinds of products. Paddle Checkout automatically presents valid payment methods for a transaction at checkout, so you don't need to handle this.

The new available_payment_methods array in transaction preview and pricing preview responses returns available payment methods for a transaction, letting you present this to your customer in your frontend before they buy.

Paddle.PricePreview() returns a pricing preview object, so available_payment_methods is available when previewing prices using Paddle.js, too.
