The Vipps eCommerce payment process

2. The landing page (If customer started on desktop)

If the payment was started on a desktop device the user will be sent to the landing page. The user confirms their number, and is prompted to log in to Vipps.

If the payment was started from a mobile device, the app will automatically switch over to Vipps.

3. Confirm payment in Vipps

The user receives a push notification on their phone. They log in to Vipps and confirm the payment. The payment is reserved, and the user gets a receipt of the successful payment

For Express checkout (Vipps Hurtigkasse), the user must give access and then choose a shipping method.
