1. Install the library

First, you must add the library and its style to the page of your site where you want the payment form to appear:

<link href="" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script defer type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Once the script has been added, the variable paygreenjs will be available every where.


About security and PCI Compliance

To be PCI Compliant you must integrate PayGreenJS directly from The scripts and style sheets cannot be included in your bundle.

2. Place the skeleton

Paygreen JS will automatically place elements on your page to collect payment information from the buyer. We find:

  • Payment methods bloc
  • Payment form bloc
    • Card number field
    • Expiration date
    • CVV field
    • Checkbox of consent (the buyer allows you or not to reuse the card. Available only if you have the option enabled and you don't manage it by your own)

In order for PaygreenJS (PGJS) to display these blocks correctly, you must place "skeletons" in your page. You can place them wherever you want on the page and thus vary the structure of the form as you wish.

ID HTMLDescriptionRequired
paygreen-containerContains PGJS instance.
Will not display anything.
paygreen-methods-containerIf no paymentMethod is provided, will display all available paymentMethodsNo (if paymentMethod is provided)
paygreen-pan-frameContains card numbersNo (if paymentMethod is provided and it's not card method)
paygreen-cvv-frameContains card CVVNo (if paymentMethod is provided and it's not card method)
paygreen-exp-frameContains card expiration dateNo (if paymentMethod is provided and it's not card method)
paygreen-reuse-checkbox-containerContains a checkbox used to collect user consent to reuse instrument.
This option must be activated for the payment configuration in the back office.


<div id="paygreen-container"></div>
<div id="paygreen-methods-container"></div>
<div class="my-custom-form">
  <div id="paygreen-pan-frame"></div>
  <div id="paygreen-cvv-frame"></div>
  <div id="paygreen-exp-frame"></div>
	<div id="paygreen-reuse-checkbox-container"></div>

You can place those elements wherever you decide on your page.

3. Init

First of all, init the library with the method init() by passing a parameter object of type ParamsType.
Here is a resume of all parameters available:
