How to implement Gestpay Guaranteed Payment in your website

Gestpay Guaranteed Payment requires you to:

  1. Install their user tracking snippet, called Store Front Beacon. This can be installed on a website or in a mobile app.
  2. Send the session_id collected by the script to Gestpay, via the relevant webservices.

Install the Store Front Beacon

On a web page

The Gestpay Guaranteed Payment store front beacon is a snippet of code embedded in the pages of your webstore. It is important that the code is added into the header or footer of your website so data is collected from every page. It loads asynchronously and does not affect page load time.

Implementation steps:

  1. Copy the JavaScript snippet that you can find in the docs - Store Front Beacon and replace the highlighted variables with:
    • Your store domain
    • Session ID - the unique identifier created when a user arrives at your website. The session ID must be created at the start of the user’s visit to your store, and not just when the shopping cart is created.
      Note: This session ID should be also passed to Gestpay in the BeaconSessionID field in the OrderDetails tag.
  2. Paste the modified beacon JavaScript snippet into the HTML of your website.
A note about Single Page Applications (SPA)

The Store Front Beacon supports sites whose content is loaded dynamically without traditional full page loads. To track dynamically loaded content as distinct pageviews you can send a pageview hit to Gestpay Guaranteed Checkout’s Beacon and specify the page name as a String type parameter.

RISKX.go('/new-page')
