Android Native SDK: CHAI's Checkout


SDK Integration prerequisites#

  1. Add ChaiPort SDK in dependency in build.gradle (:app)

    implementation 'com.github.iamport-intl:chaipay-android-native-sdk:V3.0.10'
  2. Add Authorization key provided by ChaiPay in

    //Auth Token will be provided by the ChaiPay Team
  3. Add the following snippets in build.gradle (:Project) or in settings.gradle to get access of the library.

    repositories {
    maven { url '<>' }
    url '<>'
    credentials { username authToken }
  4. Add the following snippets in build.gradle (:Project) to get access of the library.

    buildscript {
    ext.kotlin_version = "1.5.10"
    dependencies {
    classpath ''
  5. Initialize the ChaiPort Instance in your checkout activity which will be used to access checkout methods. You will also require to pass the environment

    private lateinit var chaiPort: ChaiPort
    private var environment = sandbox // For Sandbox
    private var environment = live // For Live
    chaipay = ChaiPortImpl(this, "$environment")
  6. Add the following Intent Filter to the Activity to which you want the user to be navigated after completion of payment. Default is should be Checkout Activity. In the data tag there are two parameters host and scheme whose values will be set according the redirection url.

    redirectionUrl= **checkout://chaiport**
    then the host will be **checkout** and the scheme will be **chaipay**
    android:scheme="chaiport" />
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
    android:scheme="$scheme" />

Checkout :#

  1. Generate a jwt token with your client key and secret key.
internal fun getJwtToken(clientKey:String,secretKey:String): String {
val cur = Calendar.getInstance().time
val generationTime: Long = cur.time / 1000
val expirationTime: Long = generationTime + 100
val jwt = Jwts.builder()
.setHeaderParam("typ", "JWT")
.setHeaderParam("alg", "HS256")
.claim("iss", "CHAIPAY")
.claim("sub", clientKey)
.claim("iat", generationTime)
.claim("exp", expirationTime)
return jwt

Recomanded Library for generating jwt Token on frontend:

implementation 'io.jsonwebtoken:jjwt:0.9.1'

Authentication | CHAIPort

  1. Generate a Signture Hash to be added in payload.
internal fun getSignatureHash(
amount: String,
currency: String,
failureUrl: String,
orderId: String,
clientKey: String,
successUrl: String
): String {
val hashMap: HashMap<String, String> = HashMap()
hashMap["amount"] = amount
hashMap["currency"] = currency
hashMap["failure_url"] = failureUrl
hashMap["merchant_order_id"] = orderId
hashMap["client_key"] = clientKey
hashMap["success_url"] = successUrl
val message = StringBuilder()
for ((key, value) in hashMap.toSortedMap().entries) {
val values = URLEncoder.encode(value, "UTF-8")
if (message.isNotEmpty()) {
} else {
val sha256 = Hashing.hmacSha256(SECRET_KEY.toByteArray(StandardCharsets.UTF_8))
.hashString(message, StandardCharsets.UTF_8).asBytes()
val base64: String = Base64.encodeToString(sha256, Base64.DEFAULT)
Log.i(TAG_CHAI_PAY, "SignatureHash:base64-> $base64")
return base64.trim()

Payment Request | CHAIPort

  1. To checkout using webview, the following method has to be invoked with the required request body
val checkoutDetails = CheckoutPaymentDto.CheckoutUsingWebRequest()
token = getJwtToken(clientKey,secretKey),
clientKey = clientKey,
request = checkoutDetails
  1. After the completion of checkout, app has to receive its payment status which has to be handled using intent and the received status will be passed to the updatePaymentStatus() method
if (null != intent && null != {
val paymentStatus =
  1. The following method has to be added on the checkout activity where the checkout action has performed to receive the checkout status after checkout completion the HashMap format.
override fun onActivityResult(requestCode: Int, resultCode: Int, data: Intent?) {
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data)
if (resultCode == RESULT_CODE && data != null) {
when (requestCode) {
val paymentStatus: PaymentDto.PaymentStatus? =
?: "Empty") as PaymentDto.PaymentStatus
