Manu: We recently published the two specs. They are designed to mirror payment request API
08:14:55 [nick]
nick has joined #wpwg
08:15:01 [Ian]
...the HTTP API is about how you execute the current browser flow using purely HTTP
08:15:11 [Ian]
...Digital Bazaar and Worldpay have done basic implementations
08:15:33 [Laurent_]
Laurent_ has joined #wpwg
08:15:35 [Ian]
...the orgs didn't chat about their implementations but we are off to a good start
08:15:54 [Ian]
...three categories of questions arose around the specs:
08:15:59 [Ian]
1) Do they reflect existing practice?
08:16:04 [Ian]
2) What are the use cases?
08:16:11 [Ian]
3) Who do we get relevant parties involved?
08:16:20 [MattPi]
MattPi has joined #wpwg
08:16:35 [Ian]
present+ NickS
08:17:17 [Ian]
...the HTTP API works like this:
08:17:24 [Ian]
* You try to get something and are told you have to pay
08:17:33 [Ian]
* You are told where to send a payment request, which is shipped via HTTP
08:17:46 [Ian]
* You get a payment response and you get access to a resource
08:18:12 [AdrianHB]
present+ AdrianHB
08:18:21 [Ian]
...on the question of whether the API reflects current practice - the flow we are trying to enable is the SAME flow that we are talking about in the browser API, just out of a browser.
08:18:28 [AdrianHB]
q+ to suggest we discuss use cases first
08:18:34 [nicktr]
08:18:55 [Ian]
..the question arose - isn't this about communication between the payee and the payment service provider? That's not what the API is about, but we could do that if the group thinks that's a priority
08:18:56 [Ian]
08:19:05 [Ian]
adrianhb: Let's talk about use cases first
08:19:14 [nicktr]
ack AdrianHB
08:19:14 [Zakim]
AdrianHB, you wanted to suggest we discuss use cases first
08:19:19 [nicktr]
08:19:20 [Ian]
..if the use cases are things that don't exist, then the other questions would be moot
08:19:23 [Ian] let's start with the use cases
08:19:36 [Evgeny]
Evgeny has joined #wpwg
08:19:49 [Ian]
Manu: I think there was a misconception that the HTTP API is for internet of things use cases
08:20:05 [Ian]
...while in theory that could work, that's not our focus.
08:20:12 [Ian]
...the primary focus is automatic payments.
08:20:26 [Ian]
...e.g., your bank software makes monthly payments
08:20:39 [Ian]
...or you want to use an app (not in the browser) to make a payment
08:20:57 [Ian] running in it's non-interactive but it's not IOT
08:21:21 [Ian]
...think of paying a utility you give your payment instrument information to the utility company....if your card changes you have to set it up again
08:21:27 [zkoch]
08:21:41 [Ian]
...the other thing with utility payments is that they occur regularly, but you don't know what you have to pay until the end of the month
08:21:45 [AdrianHB]
q+ to note some similarities with PSD2
08:22:35 [Ian]
...what you could do is having wallet or banking software where you set up a payment endpoint with your electricity provider, and your banking software will ping the provider to get a total. That results in a payment request. The utility company says "you owe this much this month". Your wallet software responds to the payment request (using some payment method) and the utility processes the payment.
08:23:02 [Ian]
...there are various benefits (e.g., your wallet can pay with your updated card)
08:23:07 [Ian]
ack zk
08:23:21 [Ian]
zkoch: Is the idea that once it's set up it's automated?
08:23:23 [Ian]
Manu: Yes.
08:24:00 [Ian]
zkoch: It's hard for me to imagine automatically switching underlying form of payment without user consent. I'm having a hard time understanding the line between HTTP/Browser because of the user connect that's likely
08:24:05 [Ian]
08:24:10 [rouslan]
rouslan has joined #wpwg
08:24:28 [Ian]
Manu: The scenario goes like this: there is prior consent to use different payment methods.
08:24:35 [nicktr]
08:25:05 [Ian]
zkoch: So is a key use case that you are delegating to the wallet authority to make decisions on how to pay.
08:25:12 [Ian]
Manu: That is a use case, not the primary use case.
08:25:16 [pascal_bazin]
pascal_bazin has joined #wpwg
08:25:22 [nicktr]
08:25:23 [pascal_bazin]
08:25:27 [Ian]
...the primary use case is "some piece of software other than the browser" that you have configured to make payments on your behalf.
08:25:39 [Ian]
Manu: Another use case is a large corporation that wants to pay vendors automatically
08:26:04 [Ian]
...e.g., a gov agency could ping different suppliers each month where automatically they ping the vendor for the amount owed,
08:26:21 [Ian]
...and the system determines whether the value is within an acceptable range, and if so payment happens automatically
08:26:30 [dezell]
08:26:32 [nicktr]
ack AdrianHB
08:26:32 [Zakim]
AdrianHB, you wanted to note some similarities with PSD2
08:26:33 [Ian] the primary focus is "smart payment agents making payments on your behalf"
08:26:51 [Ian]
AdrianHB: Understanding the actors has made it clearer to me parallels to the PSD2 architecture
08:27:11 [Ian] are describing an actor that is authorized to initiate payments...PISP in PSD2
08:27:14 [nicktr]
08:27:44 [Ian]
manu: Yes, the PISP could be using HTTP API

pascal_bazin: Could the HTTP API be used to introduce third party payment methods not managed by the browser?
08:28:37 [Ian]
Manu: The goal is to use any payment method that the browser supports....
08:28:48 [Ian]
pascal_bazin: Could you use the HTTP API implement a new payment method?
08:28:55 [Ian]
Manu: Maybe; that's a general answer

08:30:12 [Ian] enables us to decompose problems

08:34:12 [betehess]
betehess has joined #wpwg
08:34:43 [Ian]
...if we wanted to do the new connection between payment app / PSP we only have about 3 PSPs in the group and we'd need to do more outreach
08:35:40 [Ian]
08:36:11 [Ian]
Manu: So the question if we have limited resources, should we focus on "enabling the same browser flow in other software" or "PSP communication"?

ian: thinking about who is in the group
08:36:48 [AdrianHB]
... if I understand the use cases it's focusing on automated payments
08:37:22 [AdrianHB]
... the value of interop for the browser api is small number of implementations and wide user base
08:37:45 [AdrianHB]
... what is the interop gain for http api and therefor who do we need involved in the work?

I have made the request to generate Mike5
08:39:03 [Ian]
Manu: Interop is that app providers have common format.
08:39:59 [AdrianHB]
ian: whow are the companies that would be payment app providers?
08:40:01 [Ian]
IJ: I have not figured out the economic / interop incentives yet.
08:40:15 [Ian]
manu: Anyone who is doing a wallet app wants to do automatic payments...
08:40:39 [Ian] the incentive for wallet providers is that users stay in their wallet for all payments
08:40:58 [Ian]
08:41:47 [Ian]
Manu: There is no way today for a wallet provider to hit a service and get a payment request in a universal format
08:42:13 [ShaneM]
08:42:55 [Ian]
Shane: Manu mentioned not being able to hit an endpoint. One thing you can't do today as an automated service provider...
08:43:07 [Ian]
...there are proprietary ways to do things...but there's no standard way to do thing
08:43:14 [Ian]
..I can pay mortgage monthly today
08:43:41 [nicktr]
08:43:42 [Ian]
...if my wallet had a way to talk to the electric company, get the amount, and pay them, it would improve user experience and improve interop for all wallet providers
08:44:33 [sangchul]
sangchul has joined #wpwg
08:44:55 [Ian]
IJ: Who are the service providers who want to come together to do this?
08:45:04 [Ian]
...I apologize I am not understanding the incentives yet
08:45:31 [Ian]
Manu: We want to work on a primer and clarify the benefits, then reach out to parties to determine whether this is a compelling use case for them
08:45:37 [AjaySR]
AjaySR has joined #WPWG
08:45:44 [Ian]
IJ: +1 to talking to key parties to determine what the interop needs are
08:46:17 [Ian]
Manu: Are org is very interest in this level of interop...we don't hear enough orgs in the WG today so we want to go out there and talk with them. If we go out and find out that this is not something that is broadly desired, we'll need to change direction.
08:46:38 [Ian] we need more data to find out whether this is a compelling thing for merchants and payment service providers

09:00:55 [Ian]
Ben: I think that users would like the additional automation, what I don't
09:00:56 [adamR_]
adamR_ has joined #wpwg
09:00:57 [Ian]
understand is the relationship to current processing and stakeholder roles.
09:00:59 [Ian]
AdrianHB: So Manu, you are driving the work and can continue. I would plan
09:01:01 [Ian]
to get more involved once we've addressed other priorities in the WG.
09:01:03 [Ian]
...also the Interledger CG is setting up a micropayments breakout tomorrow.
09:01:05 [Ian]
Evgeny: From a PSP perspective. I had not understood previously that
09:01:07 [Ian]
HTTP API is for automated payments; I agree that is useful. It would
09:01:09 [Ian]
be useful to simplify the API as a starting point. E.g., 2 calls to make
09:01:11 [Ian]
a payment.
09:01:13 [Ian]
DavidE: On your point of people who would like this: zipline and @@
09:01:15 [Ian]
are two companies that come to mind. They are the kinds of NACS members
09:01:19 [Ian]
who want to innovate in the wallet space.

I have made the request to generate Ian

topic: Push payments
09:01:47 [Ian]
Roy: See my write-up of the problem statement. Failures in card
09:01:51 [Ian]
payment scenario are not that harmful. But for Alipay, SEPA pay, etc.
09:01:53 [Ian]
where funds are changing hands before you get the response, there
09:01:55 [Ian]
are many failure points in the flow where failure is more harmfil
09:02:13 [Ian] previous idea to address this would be (1) mediator generated identifier (e.g., UUID) in combination with (2) discovery service

10:26:03 [Ian]
PROPOSED: An identifier is an absolute URL composed of the schema, origin, path. No query string params and no fragments.
10:26:27 [Ian]
...these URLs could be used by users to get web pages
10:26:49 [Ian]
PROPOSED #2: At that URL you can append payment-manifest.json which has data describing that payment method.
10:27:06 [Ian]
zkoch: There is precedence for this in Android

13:39:58 [AdrianHB]

[Summary of CR]
13:52:36 [Ian]
nicktr: I am hearing two different accounts: some want to go to CR (implementers in particular who are talking to customers) and those who do not (notably around payment apps)
13:52:44 [Ian] one question is "when will payment apps be ready"?
13:53:00 [Ian]
..I think personally that there may be some things in payment apps that affect payment request API

13:53:12 [Ian]

13:53:15 [nicktr]

zkoch: We've tried to design payment request API with all this in mind - how things work in the real world.
13:53:45 [Ian]'s based on that confident and we are confident about moving forward
13:54:03 [Ian]
...this is an opportunity to say "we are not going to add new features"
13:54:14 [Ian] other point is that these are independent specifications.
13:54:24 [Ian]
...we believe in the open ecosystem, but the specs are independent.
13:54:41 [adamR]
13:54:51 [Ian]
...we can make a best effort to go to CFC in 5 weeks to motivate ourselves
13:54:53 [AdrianHB]
13:54:55 [Ian]
...and see where we are in 5 weeks
13:55:04 [Mike5]
13:55:06 [Ian] doesn't seem negative to me to aim for a target date.

13:56:35 [nicktr]
13:56:47 [Ian]
AdrianHB: I don't think we are in a position to say "We will issue a CFC in 5 weeks." I think we are in a position to get things done and then check then
13:56:53 [Ian]
...whether we are ready to go to CFC.
13:57:11 [MattS]
13:57:17 [Ian]
AdamR: I am concerned that when we get further into payment app spec, we may find we will make breaking changes to payment request API

13:58:07 [Ian]
...there are goals that it independently accomplishes.

14:09:25 [Ian]
NickS: I think it's odd that have that API that has implementers in the wild and we are going to gate moving into CR with a spec that depends on it
14:09:38 [Ian]
AdamR: I think there are mutual dependencies..we want an ecosystem that includes payment apps with PR API

AdrianHB: An example is push payments.

...does it require a new feature in payment request API (e.g., an event)
14:12:23 [Ian]
NickS: There does not seem to be a clear timeline for payment apps, but we have a much clearer timeline for PR API
14:12:44 [Ian]
...both chrome and edge are implementing. It seems like we are doing a disservice not going to CR as quickly as possible
14:12:58 [Ian]

14:18:46 [Ian]
..I think the task force is on the right track.
14:19:05 [Ian]
...the technology that's being described in the payment app task force is the basis of the demo for Alipay
14:19:21 [nicktr]

IJ: Given that people agreed to read the spec yesterday by 3 October, we can have a payment app FPWD easily by second week of Oct
