Here we provide information on the development process and specifications
for merchants considering our services.
On this page, out of the series procedures related to introducing our payment services, we will focus on introducing the flow for connecting to our payment system. Our payment system can be connected to through a variety of development languages as long as you can prepare a program that can send and receive HTTP GET / POST requests.
*The parts in dark blue in the figure below are the processes where development is involved.
*1 If you do not have a site or are using an e-commerce shopping cart / site building package, please click here.
*2 The explanations on this page are intended for sites that are not using the above e-commerce shopping carts or other packages.
*2 Start dates may vary depending on the status of development. Please take these timeframes as a rough guide.
When introducing our payment services, we will inquire about the methods for connecting with our payment system and your service’s site environment.
There are two methods for connecting with our payment system: Link type and API type. You will select one of these connection methods.
*The connection method may be predetermined depending on the payment methods used.
This connection method redirects users to a payment screen provided by SB Payment Service to process payments. The customer's screen will redirect to the purchase procedures screen, the payment information input screen (provided by us), and the purchase completion screen.
・Advantages: Since merchants do not need to configure your own payment screens, our services can be introduced quickly by limiting development needed to only the sending and receiving of payment information, reducing developer hours.
・Disadvantages: Since the payment screens are provided by us, there is a lower degree of freedom in your site’s design.
For more details, please refer to our Link type connection page.
Through this connection method, payment information is sent between merchants’ system and our servers to process the payment. Merchants can freely design their payment screens.
The customer's screen will redirect to the purchase procedures screen, the payment information input screen, and the purchase completion screen.
・Advantages: Since merchants prepare their own payment screen, they can be designed freely.
・Disadvantages: Man-hours are needed to design the payment screens
For more details, please refer to our API type connection page.
Those wishing to introduce our Online Payment Services without setting up an e-commerce site can use our Email Payment Link Service. The Email Payment Link Service allows customers to pay online by invoicing them via email, SMS, or QR code.
If you would like to learn more about our Email Payment Link Service, please click here.
If you plan to use an e-commerce shopping cart / site building package, we will introduce e-commerce shopping cart merchants that are already linked with our payment system.
If you are already using an e-commerce shopping cart, please check with your e-commerce shopping cart provider if it is possible to connect our payment methods.
Please see below for e-commerce shopping cart merchants that can link with our payment services.
We will configure a payment system exclusively for you. Configuration will take between a few days and about 2 weeks depending on the payment methods and settings.
In addition, we will prepare a shared test environment for your testing during the vetting and dedicated payment system configuration period, so you can test your connection in advance. By testing in the shared test environment, you can move into production smoothly by changing dedicated information such as merchant IDs and hash keys once you connect to the production environment.
After the payment system is configured, we will send you the following information by email.
Merchants will be required to develop a connection with the payment system. The various specifications and related materials for each payment method are posted on the Developer Console - Developer Support Site’s specifications download page. Please consider designing and configuring your payment interface according to our specifications to prepare for implementation on your site.
The specifications can be downloaded here. (Registration is required.)
*We offer Link type and API type connection methods, so please refer to the respective specifications for the connection method used.
You can begin to use your preferred payment methods. Your login ID and password for the Admin portal / Payment management tool will be provided to the administrator alongside the connection details.
* Start dates may vary depending on the status of development for the payment system.
*You can find frequently asked questions about payment methods, systems, and applications on the FAQ page.
*Please note that we do not provide our Online Payment Services to sole proprietors.
We provide an Admin portal / Payment management tool that allows you to check payment data. Only merchants can access this page.
