      -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
      -H 'Authorization: Bearer your_bearer_token \
      -d '{
      "request_id": "ed11e38a-7234-11ea-aa94-7fd44ffd1b89",
    "amount": 20,
    "currency": "HKD",
    "merchant_order_id": "85d7b0e0-7235-11ea-862e-9f6aa1adfca6"
    "return_url": ""

Step 2. Redirect to Alipay Cashier to complete payment

When a shopper selects to pay with Alipay on their desktop browser, call the following API endpoints to get a e-wallet cashier URL, which you can redirect the shopper to Alipay cashier to complete payment.

  1. Obtain URL from Airwallex and redirect shopper to Alipay cashier

Request:{id}/confirm \
      -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
      -H 'client-secret: Ss3thJHPE6TyI4r-8BJFlqNz1mA7DblVuN0c8GOthnchp7Sf-_JuQnuX3sqzv7_0EiTMOs2kcGopFrMoFC0w7IzPCErJ1a0P7sFnpwB6uz-H2h_6rDhhSd2tKJF-l2myVOXQV4Zou3s_OsX6thLiUKI=" \
      -d '{"request_id": "ed11e38a-7234-11ea-aa94-7fd44ffd1b89",
"type": "alipaycn",
  "alipaycn": {
     "flow": "webqr"

Response: Render the value of qrcode_url to redirect shoppers to Alipay Cashier.

      "next_action": {
      "type": "redirect",
      "url": ""
  1. Wait for notification from Airwallex

Airwallex will notify you on the payment result asynchronously via the webhook API. Please refer to webhook documentation to set up your webhook accordingly. Although subscribing to different events is optional, it is recommended to at least subscribe to the ‘payment_intent.succeeded’ which indicates that the shopper has successfully paid for the order via Alipay.

  1. Query the PaymentIntent status

You may also query the status of a payment anytime via the PaymentIntents API

    GET /payment_intents/{id}
