Learn how to start receiving card payments.

Create a payment

With dLocal API you can build your own payment form and take full control over the look and feel and experience of your checkout.

Type of paymentDescription
Pay with card informationIf your business is Full PCI DSS compliant, you can use the card information for credit card payments.

See example
Pay with Smart FieldsIf your business is not Full PCI DSS compliant, you need to securely collect the card information using Smart Fields.

ℹ️

Important

If you are making a payment with credit card information or a Google Pay™ token, you need to use the following endpoint instead: https://api.dlocal.com/secure_payments.

Card payments with a card_id or token should use the endpoint: https://api.dlocal.com/payments.

Ready-to-use solution

If you'd rather not build your own experience, you can process payments safely and simply with a ready-to-use design and front end. Learn more about Checkout Redirect.
