PaymentResponse.methodName

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

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The methodName read-only property of the PaymentResponse interface returns the payment method identifier for the payment method that the user selected, for example, Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, etc.

Syntax

var methodName = PaymentResponse.methodName;

Example

The following example extracts the method name from the PaymentResponse object to the promise returned from PaymentRequest.show(). In a real-world implementation this data would then be sent to a payment server.

payment.show().then(paymentResponse => {
  var paymentData = {
    // payment method string
    method: paymentResponse.methodName,
    // payment details as you requested
    details: paymentResponse.details,
    // shipping address information
    address: toDict(paymentResponse.shippingAddress)
  };
  // Send information to the server
});
