The UNIPaaS components are a set of embedded UI components that you can use within your platform. The UNIPaaS components include an out-of-the-box UI and logic. Implementing these within your platform will provide a tremendous amount of value to your customers, as well as dramatically reduce the amount of time and effort required for the implementation of a full payment system.

The following embedded components are available for your platform:

Component nameDescriptionPriority
Pay PortalYour users' main payments page. It includes a transactions list, current balance, configurations and more.Required
NotificationProvides your users with all relevant payment-related notifications, within a user-friendly notification center.Required

Alternatively, if you have your own a notification center, use the notification/create webhook to receive payments notifications
InvoiceAdded to your invoice creation, editing and viewing pages. It provides vital information and configurations regarding the available payment methods for the specific invoice.Highly recommended
DashboardPresents your users with the most important payments and registration information on their dashboard.Highly recommended
OnboardingProvides a ready UI for your platform that handles a full vendor registration process, including all KYB/KYC aspectsRequired

Preparing your platform for UNIPaaS components integration

This guide includes the information and steps you need to take to prepare your platform for the UNIPaaS components integration.

Completing the following steps will create the required infrastructure to pass configurations and render all the UNIPaaS components that will be embedded in later stages, manage your access token and listen to events.

The UNIPaaS access token

The UNIPaaS components access token is required to load any embedded components within your platform. The access token is generated in your backend by making an authorize API call, with defined scopes and a vendor ID (if you have a vendor ID).

Scopes define the permissions your access token will grant for all of the UNIPaaS components you will be using throughout your platform. When creating your access token, consider which of the UNIPaaS components you will be using in your platform.

The following scopes are available:

Scopes that cover all UNIPaaS Components permissions
Use the following scopes to allow your users access to all UNIPaaS Components on your platform.

Scope nameDescription
portal_readAll GET permissions required for using UNIPaaS Components on your platform
portal_writeAll POST permissions required for using UNIPaaS Components on your platform

Specific component scopes
In case there is a need to grant permissions to specific component only, use the following granular scopes to customize permissions according to your needs:

Scope nameDescription
onboarding_readEmbedded onboarding component GET permissions
onboarding_writeEmbedded onboarding component POST permissions
ewallet_readEmbedded ewallet component GET permissions
payout_writeEmbedded ewallet component payout features POST permissions
payout_readEmbedded ewallet component payout features GET permissions
link_readEmbedded ewallet component additional features GET permissions
link_writeEmbedded ewallet component additional features POST permissions
notification_readEmbedded Notification component additional features GET permissions
notification_writeEmbedded Notification component additional features POST permissions
invoice_readEmbedded Invoice component additional features GET permissions
invoice_writeEmbedded Invoice component additional features POST permissions

UNIPaaS components DOM events

UNIPaaS components will communicate with your platform by firing front end events. Use these events to link your users to different pages on your platform, handle exceptions, errors and more.

Event nameDescriptionYour actionEvent action type
startOnboardingA new user's intent to register to your payments platform (new users only)Redirect to platform’s create new vendor flowLink
completeOnboardingUser’s intent to complete registration with UNIPaaSRedirect to the UNIPaaS embedded onboarding component on your platformLink
invoicePage

Payload:
{invoiceId: String}

Example:

{
invoiceId: "INV1234"
}
User’s intent to view a specific invoice. This event includes an invoice number as payloadRedirect to the specific invoice page on your platformLink
buyerPage

Payload:
{buyerId: String}

Example:

{
buyerId: "B12345"
}
User’s intent to view a specific buyer's profile. This event includes a buyer id as payloadRedirect to the specific buyer (customer) page on your platformLink
payPortal

Payload:
{queryParam?: String}

Example:

{
queryParam: "page=notifications"
}
User’s intent to view the Pay Portal (embedded component) or a specific tab of itRedirect to the UNIPaaS embedded Pay Portal on your platform

Add a payload content as a query param to Pay Portal page URL's query string
Link
enablePaymentsUser's intent to enable the UNIPaaS-powered payments solution in your platform (while it is disabled)Redirect to the settings page on your platform, where users can enable (and set as default) the payment solutionLink
generalErrorAn exception or error has occurred on the backed during a requestRefresh the page (optional)Error
sessionExpiredThe access token has expired or invalid access token scopeRefresh the page (optional)Error

📘

Expiration

Each access token is valid for 1 hour. Access tokens will auto refresh every time a component communicates with the UNIPaaS servers

Integration steps


Generate the UNIPaaS components access token from your backend.

curl -X POST "https://sandbox.unipaas.com/platform/authorize" 
  -H  "accept: application/json" 
  -H  "Authorization: Bearer <PLATFORM_SECRET_KEY>" 
  -H  "Content-Type: application/json" 
  --data-raw '{
      "scopes": ["onboarding_write", "onboarding_read"], // Replace with relevant scopes
      "vendorId": "{vendorId}" // When no vendor ID is sent, you will receive a public access token
   }'

The following is an access token request response example:

{
  "accessToken": "{{accessToken}}",
  "expiresIn": 3600,
  "vendorId": "{{vendorId}}",
  "merchantId": "{{merchantId}}",
  "env": "sandbox",
  "scopes": [
    "onboarding_read",
    "onboarding_write"
  ]
}

Implement the UNIPaaS components JS in your web pages

Place the following script tag element inside of the <head> of your HTML page.

<script type="application/javascript" src="https://cdn.unipaas.com/embedded-ui.js"></script>

Place the following script tag element before the </body> of your HTML page.

<script type="text/javascript">
    const components = unipaas.components("<accessToken>");
</script>

Listen (and take action) to UNIPaaS components DOM events as per the following example:

components.on("payPortal", (e) => {
  console.log("payPortal event", e.detail);
});

Go Next

Your platform is now ready to implement the first embedded component.
We highly recommend implementing the Pay Portal first.
This core component provides your users with the most critical information about their payments, such as a transactions list, current balance, configurations and more.
