Working with Response after a Customer Checkout

You will require to wrAll PayU India APIs use cURL format for posting requests to endpoints and endpoints provide a response in encoded URL format. You need to convert the encoded URL format to an array format.ite some amount of code to collect the details from your customer and submit those details with PayU using a cURL with PayU Hosted Checkout integration.

The response will contain response parameters and a few response parameters may contain the values in a JSON format. Therefore, you need to learn how to read and write data in the array format and JSON format. The array and JSON formats are similar, where the data is stored in key-value pairs. For instance, the following response is an example of a successful response to a Collect Payment API request.

Adding a make Payment button to your website (HTML)

After your customer completes adding the products on your website to the cart, the customer will checkout. Here, in this example, start by creating an HTML where a button.

<button id="button" type='button'>Get Joke</button>

Later, you will reference the button in the JS. The type="button" tells the browser that this isn’t a typical form submission button.

You need to parse this response as per the programming language you are using to implement. For example, the following sample code is in JS, Java, Python, and PHP:

import requests

def button_click(event):
    # Checking if the button was clicked
    if not"#button"):

    # Fetching the URL and logging the response data
    response = requests.get("")
    data = response.json()

# Registering the event listener on button click
document.addEventListener("click", button_click)
if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST' && isset($_POST['button'])) {
  // Perform your fetch request here using the PHP cURL library
  $url = "";
  $ch = curl_init();
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
  $response = curl_exec($ch);

  // Decode the JSON response
  $data = json_decode($response, true);
  var_dump($data); // Output the decoded JSON data
document.addEventListener("click", function (event) {
  // Checking if the button was clicked
  if (!"#button")) return;

    .then((response) => response.json())
    .then((data) => console.log(data));
import java.util.concurrent.CompletableFuture;

public class Example {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        HttpClient client = HttpClient.newHttpClient();
        HttpRequest request = HttpRequest.newBuilder()

        // Registering the event listener on button click
        // Checking if the button was clicked
        // Fetching the URL and logging the response data
        CompletableFuture<HttpResponse<String>> future = client.sendAsync(request, HttpResponse.BodyHandlers.ofString())

In the above code snippet:

  • Javascript:

Here, the code snippet is for listening for all clicks. The Fetch API (provided by the browser) makes requests and fetches resources. Here, the fetch() and two instances of .then().

.then((response) => response.json())
.then((data) => console.log(data));
  • Java: The Java HTTP client is used to make an asynchronous HTTP request to the specified URL. Then, log the response data to the console.
  • Python: A function button_click checks if the button was clicked and fetches the specified URL using the requests library. Then, decoding the JSON response using the .json() method and printing it using print(). The document.addEventListener line is specific to the browser environment and won’t work in Python. You’ll need to adjust that part of the code to fit your specific use case.
  • PHP: The code checks if the button was clicked by checking if the HTTP request method is POST and if the ‘button’ parameter was sent in the request. Later, posting a cURL request to the specified URL and decoding the JSON response using json_decode(). Finally, the output of the decoded data using var_dump().
