Installing the Monnify SDK is very easy and can be completed in a couple of minutes. Simply follow the steps below:

Add the Monnify Web SDK Javascript Snippet to your website

You can simply copy the code snippet below and paste it in your website to install the Monnify SDK.

Monnify Web SDK
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<button onclick="payWithMonnify()">Pay with Monnify</button>

<script type="text/javascript">
	function payWithMonnify() {
			amount: 5000,
			currency: "NGN",
			reference: '' + Math.floor((Math.random() * 1000000000) + 1),
			customerName: "John Doe",
			customerEmail: "",
			customerMobileNumber: "08121281921",
			apiKey: "MK_TEST_SAF7HR5F3F",
			contractCode: "4934121693",
			paymentDescription: "Test Pay",
			isTestMode: true,
		    metadata: {
                    "name": "Damilare",
                    "age": 45
			incomeSplitConfig: 	[
	    			"subAccountCode": "MFY_SUB_342113621921",
	    			"feePercentage": 50,
		    		"splitAmount": 1900,
		    		"feeBearer": true
		    		"subAccountCode": "MFY_SUB_342113621922",
		    		"feePercentage": 50,
	    			"splitAmount": 2100,
	    			"feeBearer": true
			onComplete: function(response){
				//Implement what happens when transaction is completed.
			onClose: function(data){
				//Implement what should happen when the modal is closed here

Once you've copied this code into your website, you can start receiving payments via Monnify immediately. 

You will likely need to pass in your own values when initializing the SDK. Your contractCode, and apiKey can be found on your Monnify dashboard

When the transaction is completed, Monnify returns a response object to your onComplete function. 

Monnify Web SDK Response Object
	accountReference: null
	amountPaid: "5000.00"
	invoiceReference: null
	paidOn: "26/08/2019 02:13:32"
	paymentDescription: "Test Pay"
	paymentReference: "421168696"
	paymentStatus: "PAID"
	totalPayable: "5000.00"
	transactionHash: "6373d5039175201eed06c1872c557749cfba27f0d56d75ff713e58f06ebad84795d38b34334ca59470ffae8addfbdf113ec36823a1607325c89da4981e1054bf"
	transactionReference: "MNFY|20190826141314|000290"

If a user cancels, Monnify returns the following response to your onClose function

Monnify Web SDK Cancellation Object
	authorizedAmount: 0
	paymentStatus: "USER_CANCELLED"
	redirectUrl: "file:///Users/tamira/Webapps/html/sdk.html"
	responseCode: "USER_CANCELLED"
	responseMessage: "User cancelled Transaction"

We recommend that you always make a get transaction status call whenever a transaction is completed (or cancelled) before saving the transaction on your database. Monnify will also notify you via your webhook url of the status of any transaction.
