BasicCardRequest.supportedTypes

Secure context
This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The obsolete supportedTypes property of the BasicCardRequest dictionary can optionally be provided to specify an array of DOMStrings representing the card types that the retailer supports (e.g. credit, debit, prepaid).

This property is obsolete and should no longer be used. Instead of making the web app or site worry about this, the onus has been transferred to the payment processor.

Syntax

basicCardRequest.supportedTypes = [cardType1...cardTypeN];

Value

An array containing one or more DOMStrings, which describe the card types the retailer supports. Legal values are defined in BasicCardType enum, and are currently:

  • credit
  • debit
  • prepaid

Example

The following example shows a sample definition of the first parameter of the PaymentRequest() constructor, the data property of which contains supportedNetworks and supportedTypes properties.

var supportedInstruments = [{
  supportedMethods: 'basic-card',
  data: {
    supportedNetworks: ['visa', 'mastercard', 'amex', 'jcb',
                        'diners', 'discover', 'mir', 'unionpay'],
    supportedTypes: ['credit', 'debit']
  }
}];

var details = { ... };

var options = { ... };

var request = new PaymentRequest(supportedInstruments, details, options);
