Accept Big C payments on your website by redirecting shopper to Big C payment page. See checkout process below:

  1. The shopper selects to pay with Big C on merchant’s checkout page
  2. The shopper is redirected to payment information page where a Transaction ID and a Barcode are displayed
  3. The shopper prints out the payment information page or saves it as pdf
  4. The shopper takes the Transaction ID and Barcode to any Big C store and completes the payment with cash
  5. The shopper receives a receipt of the payment from the cashier
  6. The payment status is updated as paid

Step 1. Initialize a Payment Intent

Create a PaymentIntent object with a request_id, amount, currency and a merchant_order_id from your backend server.


Step 2. Get available payment methods

To be able to display BigC as a payment option on your checkout page, you need to get available payment methods from Airwallex API.

When the PaymentIntent is created, send a GET request with parameters country_code, transaction_currency, transaction_mode to API endpoint /api/v1/pa/config/payment_method_types to query for a list of available payment method based on the information provided. The response will also contain the required fields and necessary resources of each payment method for you to display them on your page.


Response: Render payment methods in items to show all available payment methods to the shopper at checkout page.

Note for available payment methods:

Alternatively, you can maintain available payment methods and corresponding resources locally on your server if you do not want to use this API endpoint. However, we highly recommend you get available payment methods dynamically from this API to avoid any trouble when payment method information or resources get updated.

Step 3. Redirect to Big C to complete payment

When a shopper selects to pay with Big C on their desktop/mobile browser, call the following API endpoints to get the URL in next_action to redirect the shopper to Big C payment page to complete the payment.

  1. Obtain URL from Airwallex and redirect shopper to payment instruction page




  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 Big C.

  1. Query the PaymentIntent status

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