The onshippingoptionchange event of the PaymentRequest interface is fired whenever the user changes a shipping option. 


PaymentRequest.addEventListener('shippingoptionchange', shippingOptionChangeEvent => { ... });

PaymentRequest.onshippingoptionchange = function(shippingOptionChangeEvent) { ... };


The shippingoptionchange event is triggered by a user-agent controlled interaction. If the option stored by the user agent changes at any time during a payment process, the event is triggered. To make sure an updated option is included when sending payment information to the server, you should add event listeners for a PaymentRequest object after instantiation, but before the call to show().

// Initialization of PaymentRequest arguments are excerpted for clarity.
var request = new PaymentRequest(supportedInstruments, details, options);

// When user selects a shipping address
request.addEventListener('shippingaddresschange', e => {
  e.updateWith(((details, addr) => {
    var shippingOption = {
      id: '',
      label: '',
      amount: { currency: 'USD', value: '0.00' },
      selected: true
    // Shipping to US is supported
    if ( === 'US') { = 'us';
      shippingOption.label = 'Standard shipping in US';
      shippingOption.amount.value = '0.00'; = '55.00';
    // Shipping to JP is supported
    } else if ( === 'JP') { = 'jp';
      shippingOption.label = 'International shipping';
      shippingOption.amount.value = '10.00'; = '65.00';
    // Shipping to elsewhere is unsupported
    } else {
      // Empty array indicates rejection of the address
      details.shippingOptions = [];
      return Promise.resolve(details);
    // Hardcode for simplicity
    if (details.displayItems.length === 2) {
      details.displayItems[2] = shippingOption;
    } else {
    details.shippingOptions = [shippingOption];

    return Promise.resolve(details);
  })(details, request.shippingAddress));
