Step-by-step guide

For the duration of this guide, we will be using the form below.

Card form


Load the SDK.
  1. Load javascript sdk

    Loading the SDK will make available a global interswitch.hostedFields variable available.

  2. Create a hosted field instance calling the newInstance method on the interswitch.hostedFields variable. The method takes options and a callback. An hosted field instance which can be used to register events listeners and finally submit the customer’s request when the customer clicks on a the submit button will be returned to the callback
    Create Hosted Fields Instance
      function (err, hostedFieldInstance) {
        if (err) {
          // something is wrong,
        function findLabel(field) {
          return $('.hosted-field--label[for="' field.container.id + '"]');
        hostedFieldInstance.on('focus'function (event) {
          var field = event.fields[event.emittedBy];

    The options include authorization, accept offer request, fields and styles as shown below.

    Available Options
    var options = {
      request: {
        channelCode: "QTUSSD",
        customerId: "2348030583962",
        offerId: "OFFER1529932588104",
        providerCode: "MKT",
        merchantCode: "VNA"
      styles: {
        'input': {
          'font-family''roboto, verdana, sans-serif',
        ':focus': {
        '.valid': {
        '.invalid': {
      fields: {
        pan: {
          selector: '#card-pan',
          placeholder: '1111 1111 1111 1111'
        cvv: {
          selector: '#card-cvv',
          placeholder: '111'
        exp: {
          selector: '#expiration-date',
          placeholder: 'MM/YY'
        pin: {
          selector: '#card-pin',
          placeholder: 'PIN'
  3. As soon as the customer submits, initiate a submit request on the hostedFieldInstance returned in 2.
    Submit Loan Application
    var submit = document.querySelector('button[type="submit"]');
    submit.addEventListener('click'function (evt) {
      hostedFieldInstance.submit(function (err, payload) {
        if (err) {
          alert("Loan application failed");
        else {
          var payref = payload.body.loanId;
          alert("Loan application was successful with loan Id of " + payref);
    }, false)
