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

The PaymentMethodChangeEvent interface of the Payment Request API describes the paymentmethodchange event which is fired by some payment handlers when the user switches payment instruments (e.g., a user selects a "store" card to make a purchase while using Apple Pay).


In addition to the properties below, this interface includes properties inherited from PaymentRequestUpdateEvent.

methodDetails Read only Secure context
An object containing payment method-specific data useful when handling a payment method change. If no such information is available, this value is null.
methodName Read only Secure context
A DOMString containing the payment method identifier, a string which uniquely identifies a particular payment method. This identifier is usually a URL used during the payment process, but may be a standardized non-URL string as well.


This interface includes methods inherited from PaymentRequestUpdateEvent.
