UPI Intent

The API can be used for providing intent support on app, mobile web or web (Dynamic QR ) . When the Customer chooses the UPI app on the payment page and clicks the Pay button, Merchant calls Juspay’s transaction API with parameters depending on different payment methods chosen by the Customer. The API response will have the parameters required for constructing the intent URI. Merchant can then construct the URI and invoke the APP using chrome intent feature.

Construction of UPI Pay String code through the string mentioned

The sdk_params obtained in the response of the UPI transaction call should be used for constructing the Intent URI.

Sample URI:
upi://pay?tr=202101345671229366&tid=121313202101345671229366&pa=juspay@axisbank&mc=1234&pn= Merchant%20Inc&am=1.00&cu=INR&tn=Pay%20for%20merchant

upi://pay?tr=...(enter the tr).......&tid=...(enter the tid).......&pa=.....(enter merchant_vpa)...&mc=....(enter the mcc)...&pn=....(enter
the Merchant name)...&am=.....(enter the amount).....&cu=INR&tn=....(description for the transaction)..



In the URI spaces are replaced by "%20". The URI is encoded. Kindly generate the intent URI dynamically ie, based on the params received in the sdk_params response. Do not hardcode any keys or values as it can differ with different PG’s.

Merchant’s server. This is because UPI intent is an App to app switch push payment.
While payment is being done via the UPI app, Merchant has to show a waiting/loader page on the background. Merchants should continuously poll their own server to check for Juspay
callback of payment status and give the response in the frontend to the client side.
