First Public Working Drafts of Web Payments HTTP Specifications

The Web Payments Working Group has published First Public Working Drafts of the following specifications, which enable the initiation of payment requests outside of a browser context:

  • Web Payments HTTP API 1.0 outlines how to register payment applications, create payment requests, and reply with payment responses using a standard HTTP API.
  • Web Payments HTTP Messages 1.0 specifies the Web Payments messages that are used to initiate and acknowledge a payment request via the HTTP protocol. The messages are typically passed between the software ecosystem that inititates, executes, and finalizes Web Payments.

The Working Group welcomes feedback on these early drafts.
