From IndieWeb

Payment Request API is a W3C specification for collecting payment information (credit card, billing address, etc) by the browser, to help streamline the payment process on a web page.

Aaron Parecki added support for the Payment Request API to his website during IndieWebCamp Austin 2017 using the Stripe integration.


Various browsers and payment handlers that support Payment Request API all have their own documentation:


(need screenshots of the UI flow on browsers that supposedly support this, e.g.)

  • (screenshot initial setup, is user prompted to enter a cc? or do they have to set it up in prefs before attempting to pay via Request Payment support?)
  • (screenshot of request payment provider picker / confirmation)
  • etc.
