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

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The PaymentRequest.abort() method of the PaymentRequest interface causes the user agent to end the payment request and to remove any user interface that might be shown.








The following example sets up a timeout to clear the payment request that might have been abandoned or neglected.

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

var paymentTimeout = window.setTimeout(() => {
  payment.abort().then(() => {
    print('Payment timed out after 20 minutes.');
  }).catch(() => {
    print('Unable to abort, because the user is currently in the process ' +
          'of paying.');
}, 20 * 60 * 1000);  /* 20 minutes */
