2. Initialise the SDK

You need to initialise the variable using the Cashfree() function. There are two modes applicable for this - "sandbox" or "production". Sandbox is used for test environment, whereas production is used for production mode.

const cashfree = Cashfree({
    mode:"sandbox" //or production

3. Open Cashfree Checkout

To open the checkout, you can use cashfree.checkout()method.
This method can take in following parameters -

  • paymentSessionId(required)- This is received in the response of Create Order API.

  • redirectTarget(optional) - This lets you decide how to open the Cashfree Checkout. Values allowed and their descriptions are mentioned in the table below.

    _blankOpens the payment link in a new window or tab.
    _self(default)Opens the payment link in the same frame as it was clicked.

Open Cashfree Checkout in following way

let checkoutOptions = {
    paymentSessionId: "your-payment-session-id",
    redirectTarget: "_self" //optional (_self or _blank)
