Understanding account credentials

Account credentials are available in your API section for production environment. These credentials consist of -

  • MID (Merchant ID/SadadId) - This is a unique identifier provided to every merchant by SADAD. MID is part of your account credentials and MID is available in Dashboard. “SadadId” is your MID.
  • Secret Key - This is a unique secret key used for secure encryption of every request. This needs to be kept on server side and should not be shared with anyone. Secret key is availble in API section.

Fundamentals of collecting payments with Sadad:

  • Your customer clicks on a pay button in your mobile application
  • Customer is shown a checkout form where he fills his payment details and authorizes the payment
  • Based on the response received, you can display order status to customer
  • See a real-time summary of payments received and other insights in your dashboard
  • Receive payments collected from customers in your transaction history page.

Detailed Payment Flow Explained

Transaction Creation

When a transaction request is received at Sadad's server, there are multiple validations carried out like a valid source of request, structure of request, uniqueness of request etc. Once these validations are passed, a transaction is created.

Successful Transaction

Customer fills basic payment details to authorize the payment. Once the authorization is successful, money is debited from the customer's account or credit/debit card. This transaction is a successful transaction.

Failed Transaction

If the customer drops out from the payment process or in the event of payment authorization failure, money is not deducted from the customer's account. This is marked as failed transaction.

Overview of payment processing via SADAD Android/IOS SDK

  • At click of the pay button by customer, Authentication request will be sent from your server to our server.
  • Our server authenticate the request and provide the authToken to your server.
  • Once authToken received in app, then order related payload is passed to our server by the app
  • This order payload is used to generate checksumhash by our server side utility and authToken.
  • SDK verifies payload and displays payment sadad checkout page
  • Customer fills the payment details and completes the payment authentication. Once the payment is complete, response is posted back to your app via callback
  • Lastly, verify transaction status with Transaction Status API via server to server call. This protects you from scenarios where your account credentials are compromised or request/response has been tampered

Steps to start accepting payments via SADAD Android SDK

Get the sample code:

Merchant have to configure PHP code in the server before starting Android SDK.

Step 1: SDK Installation and Setup

Install SDK

Install Sadad Android SDK using Android Studio. To add the SDK to your app, add the following dependency in your build.gradle:

Steps to Integration :

Step 1. Add the JitPack repository to your project level build.gradle file
allprojects { 
  repositories { 
  maven {
      url ''

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.SadadDeveloper:Sadad_SDK_Android:v1.1.1'

How to Use ?

1) Prepare Order for purchase through the SADAD.
Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
bundle.putString(SadadOrder.ACCESS_TOKEN, token);
bundle.putString(SadadOrder.CUST_ID, "123456789");
bundle.putString(SadadOrder.ORDER_ID, "528963147");
bundle.putString(SadadOrder.TXN_AMOUNT, "100.00");
bundle.putString(SadadOrder.MOBILE_NO, "9824672292");

JSONArray productDetails = getProductDetails();

if (productDetails.length() > 0) {    

//building product details e.g. product name, product quantity, product amount
JSONArray getProductDetails() {
  JSONArray jsonArray = new JSONArray();
  JSONObject jsonObject = new JSONObject();
  try {
      jsonObject.put("itemname", "Gucci perfume");
      jsonObject.put("quantity", 1);
      jsonObject.put("amount", 1.0);
  } catch (JSONException e) {
  return jsonArray;

SadadOrder sadadOrder = new SadadOrder();
2) Initiate Sadad SDK service.

vc.delegate = self

vc.isSandbox = false

vc.strAccessToken = strAccessToken

vc.amount = self.TotalValue()

vc.arrProductDetails = self.arrProduct

vc.modalPresentationStyle = .overCurrentContext

let navigationController = UINavigationController(rootViewController: vc)

self.present(navigationController, animated: true, completion: nil)

Steps to confiqure PHP code in server

Create a config.php file over your server and write the following code
if (realpath(__FILE__) == realpath($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'])) {
echo 'access denied';
 * Set the credentials in below places.
$secretkey = '5rQRZSC4t7Ze42Cb'; // Secret key of the merchant
$sadadid = 7648426; // Sadad id of the merchant
$registered_domain = ''; // Registered domain of the merchant
$type = 'sandbox'; // 'live' - For live SDK,'sandbox' - For Sandbox
Create a index.php file over your server and write the following code. Replace the SadadId, SecretKey and Domain with your original details.
if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'GET' && realpath(__FILE__) ==
realpath($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'])) {
echo 'access denied';

include 'config.php';
if (isset($type) && $type == 'live') {
    $wspath = '';
} else if (isset($type) && $type == 'sandbox') {
    $wspath = '';
} else {
    echo 'Please insert valid type.';

$requestdata = array();
$requestip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']; // Ip of app sdk user

$requestdata = '{
                        "sadadId": "<SadadId>",
                        "secretKey": "<SecretKey>",
                        "domain": "<Domain>" 

$ch = curl_init($wspath . 'userbusinesses/getsdktoken');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, @$requestdata);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Type: application/json', 
'Content-Length: ' . strlen(@$requestdata)));
$returndata = curl_exec($ch) . "\n";

echo $returndata;
