Accept payments using credit and debit cards. No configuration required.
Credit and debit cards are the most popular way to pay online. Paddle supports all major types of card, including Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, UnionPay, Mada, JCB, Discover, and Diner's Club.
Paddle Checkout is designed to make it as easy as possible to pay with card. It presents the card form alongside other payment method options, validates fields before submit, formats card numbers automatically, and shows card type in the form.
You can accept payment by card right away when using Paddle.
Sometimes customers may be asked to authenticate a purchase using 3D Secure 2 (3DS2). Depending on the bank or card provider, customers may be prompted to enter code sent by SMS or using their banking app.
You don't need to do anything to start accepting payment by credit and debit cards. They're always enabled for your Paddle account.
You can test cards using your Paddle sandbox account.
Open a checkout, then use these card details to test payment by card:
|Card type||Card number||CVC|
|Valid Visa debit card|
|Valid card without 3DS|
|Valid card with 3DS|
|Successful initial transaction, subsequent declined transactions|
Enter any cardholder name and a valid expiry date in the future.
You can't use real card details when working with your Paddle sandbox account.
