Subscription payment using billing key

Request subscription (scheduled) payments using the customer_uid.

subscriptionsubscriptionYou can use the customer_uid obtained through the Get billing key or Non-authenticated payment (one-time) API to request a subscription or scheduled payment.

STEP 01. Request payment

You can schedule a payment for a desired time in the future by using the ChaiPort Schedule payment API.
server-side
Node.js
// Schedule payment
axios({
url: \`https://api.iamport.kr/subscribe/payments/schedule\`,
method: "post",
headers: { "Authorization": access_token }, // Add access token to authorization header
data: {
customer_uid: "gildong_0001_1234", // Unique ID for each card (billing key)
schedules: [
{
merchant_uid: "order_monthly_0001", // Order ID
schedule_at: 1519862400, // Schedule time in UNIX timestamp.
amount: 8900,
name: "Recurring payment for monthly subscription",
buyer_name: "Hong Gildong",
buyer_tel: "01012345678",
buyer_email: "[email protected]"
}
]
}
});

STEP 02. Receive payment result

When payment is attempted at the scheduled time, a webhook event occurs and the payment ID (imp_uid) and order ID (merchant_uid) are sent to the specified callback URL on the server. After receiving the payment result via webhook, you can complete the payment processing based on the result.
i'mport Webhook
For information about the i'mport Webhook and how to set the callback URL, refer to the i'mport webhook guide.
Node.js
server-side
// Process POST request to "/iamport-callback/schedule"
app.post("/iamport-callback/schedule", async (req, res) => {
try {
const { imp_uid, merchant_uid } = req.body;
// Get access token
const getToken = await axios({
url: "https://api.iamport.kr/users/getToken",
method: "post", // POST method
headers: { "Content-Type": "application/json" }, // "Content-Type": "application/json"
data: {
imp_key: "imp_apikey", // REST API key
imp_secret: "ekKoeW8RyKuT0zgaZsUtXXTLQ4AhPFW3ZGseDA6bkA5lamv9OqDMnxyeB9wqOsuO9W3Mx9YSJ4dTqJ3f" // REST API Secret
}
});
const { access_token } = getToken.data.response; // Access token
// Get payment info from i'mport server using imp_uid
const getPaymentData = await axios({
url: \`https://api.iamport.kr/payments/\${imp_uid}\`, // Pass imp_uid
method: "get", // GET method
headers: { "Authorization": access_token } // Add access token to authorization header
});
const paymentData = getPaymentData.data.response; // Save payment info
const { status } = paymentData;
if (status === "paid") { // If payment is successful
// Save payment info in DB
await Orders.findByIdAndUpdate(merchant_uid, { $set: paymentData }); // Mongoose
...
} else {
// Retry payment
}
} catch (e) {
res.status(400).send(e);
}
});

Recurring payment

To implement recurring payments, recursively schedule a payment to the i'mport server. When a payment is attempted at the scheduled time, a notification is sent to the server through the webhook URL.
Node.js
server-side
// Process POST request to "/iamport-callback/schedule"
app.post("/iamport-callback/schedule", async (req, res) => {
try {
const { imp_uid, merchant_uid } = req.body;
// Get access token
/* ...Omitted ... */
// Get payment info from i'mport server using imp_uid
/* ...Omitted ... */
const paymentData = getPaymentData.data.response; // Save payment info
const { status } = paymentData;
if (status === "paid") { // If payment is successful
// Save payment info in DB
await Orders.findByIdAndUpdate(merchant_uid, { $set: paymentData }); // Mongoose
...
// Schedule next payment
axios({
url: "{URL to receive payment schedule}", // Example: https://api.iamport.kr/subscribe/payments/schedule
method: "post",
headers: { "Authorization": access_token }, // Add access token to authorization header
data: {
customer_uid: "gildong_0001_1234", // Unique ID for each card (billing key)
schedules: [
{
merchant_uid: "order_monthly_0001", // Order ID
schedule_at: 1519516800, // Schedule time in UNIX timestamp.
amount: 8900,
name: "Recurring payment for monthly subscription",
...
}
]
}
});
} else {
// Retry payment
}
} catch (e) {
res.status(400).send(e);
}
});
The above example processes the webhook event that occurs when a scheduled payment is attempted. If the scheduled payment is completed successfully, the payment information is saved in the database and the next payment is scheduled.
