How To Integrate Payment Gateway In Flutter App?

To do integration of payment gateway the knowledge of basic Java and to write platform-specific code require knowledge of swift and user have to do the same task twice as once for iOS and once for Android.

If we take Flutter than to build an application using flutter is easy so to integrate payment gateway will be also easy hence we will take another approach for instamojo integration. The question is what is Instamojo?

A free payment gateway in India that is 100% secure, does not require maintenance cost and setup cost and trusted by 600000+ Indian businesses.

But instamojo do not provide a plugin for flutter hence to integrate instamojo in flutter app need to use any alternative method or platform channel.

To integrate payment gateway in flutter app all you need is instamojo API doc that helps you to get answers to the following questions:

Payment Gateway Integration

  1. A payment request gets complete by creating an HTTP request which includes basic details of the user. 
  2. As the request get successful that means Email address and Phone number valid than after it redirects to the URL for taking payment.
  3. Once it takes to URL need to open it in webview and just select payment method and rest of the things get managed by the payment gateway server.

As we are now aware that to integrate payment gateway some or other plugins are required to complete the integration.

Here, I want you all to know about one of the most amazing plugins of flutter known as Flutter webview plugin.

If you need an application that has a secure payment flow in your website and you don’t want to implement the same payment functionality for mobile view or an app that can display a web page without opening a device’s browser than all you need is a cool plugin by flutter that allows to incorporate with web views into flutter app that makes all the functionalities possible.

As flutter web view plugin is just like any other widget that can easily incorporate the web view plugin into the app and makes it extremely simple.

WebView(initialUrl: ‘https://flutter.io‘)

With javascriptMode parameter you can enable or disable JavaScript in your web view as webview is default disable hence to enable user need to construct webview like:

WebView(
initialUrl: ‘https://flutter.io’,
javascriptMode: JavascriptMode.unrestricted,
)

A bit of coding is required to integrate payment gateway into flutter app and it’s done.

Once the payment gets success it redirects to Thank You screen or anything that is set from the user’s end.
