Call for Review: Payment Request API and Payment Method Identifiers are W3C Proposed Recommendations

The Web Payments Working Group has just published Proposed Recommendations of Payment Request API and Payment Method Identifiers.

Payment Request standardizes an API to allow merchants (i.e., web sites selling physical or digital goods) to utilize one or more payment methods with minimal integration. Browsers facilitate the payment flow between merchant and user. Payment Method Identifiers defines payment method identifiers and how they are validated, and, where applicable, minted and formally registered with the W3C.

Comments are welcome through 28 October 2021.
