PayTM gateway Integration


I’ll provide you with a sample code and explanation for creating a profile screen with a RecyclerView using Android DataBinding. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Set up your project
Create a new Android project in Android Studio. Make sure you have the necessary dependencies in your build.gradle file:

android {
    // ...
    dataBinding {
        enabled = true

Step 2: Create the layout files
Create the following layout files in your project:


<layout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
            type="com.example.yourapp.ProfileViewModel" />

    <!-- Your profile screen layout here -->

            app:itemLayout="@layout/item_blog" />


<layout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
            type="com.example.yourapp.BlogItem" />

    <!-- Your blog item layout here -->

Step 3: Create the ViewModel and BlogItem classes
Create the following classes in your project:


class ProfileViewModel : ViewModel() {
    val blogItems: LiveData<List<BlogItem>> = MutableLiveData(
            BlogItem("Title 1", "Content 1"),
            BlogItem("Title 2", "Content 2"),
            BlogItem("Title 3", "Content 3")

class BlogItem(val title: String, val content: String)

Step 4: Create the Adapter and ViewHolder
Create the following classes in your project:


class BlogAdapter(private val blogItems: List<BlogItem>) :
    RecyclerView.Adapter<BlogAdapter.ViewHolder>() {

    override fun onCreateViewHolder(parent: ViewGroup, viewType: Int): ViewHolder {
        val inflater = LayoutInflater.from(parent.context)
        val binding: ItemBlogBinding = DataBindingUtil.inflate(
            inflater, R.layout.item_blog, parent, false
        return ViewHolder(binding)

    override fun onBindViewHolder(holder: ViewHolder, position: Int) {

    override fun getItemCount(): Int = blogItems.size

    class ViewHolder(private val binding: ItemBlogBinding) :
        RecyclerView.ViewHolder(binding.root) {

        fun bind(blogItem: BlogItem) {
            binding.blog = blogItem

Step 5: Connect everything in your Activity or Fragment
Update your ProfileActivity or ProfileFragment to include the following code:


class ProfileActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    private lateinit var binding: ActivityProfileBinding

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        binding = DataBindingUtil.setContentView(this, R.layout.activity_profile)

        val viewModel = ViewModelProvider(this).get(ProfileViewModel::class.java)
        binding.viewModel = viewModel

        val adapter = BlogAdapter(viewModel.blogItems.value ?: emptyList())
        binding.recyclerView.adapter = adapter

That’s it! You have now created a profile screen with a RecyclerView using Android DataBinding. Make sure to replace com.example.yourapp it with the appropriate package name in the code.

Remember to customize the layout files and the BlogItem class according to your requirements. You can also update the blog items dynamically by modifying the blogItems LiveData in the ViewModel.

Hope this helps you get started with your profile screen implementation!

Step 1: Sign up for a Paytm merchant account
To integrate the PayTM payment gateway, you need to sign up for a PayTM merchant account. Visit the PayTM Developer Portal (https://developer.paytm.com/) and follow the registration process to create your merchant account.

Step 2: Set up PayTM SDK in your project

  1. Open your Android project in Android Studio.
  2. Add the following dependency to your app-level build. gradle file:
implementation 'com.paytm:pgplussdk:1.4.3'
  1. Sync your project to download the PayTM SDK.

Step 3: Obtain merchant credentials
After signing up for a merchant account, you will receive the necessary credentials from PayTM. These include the merchant ID and merchant key, which you’ll need for integration.

Step 4: Create a PayTM activity
Create a new activity in your Android project to handle the PayTM payment process. For example, create a PaytmActivity.java file.

Step 5: Implement the PayTM payment process
In the PaytmActivity.java file, implement the following steps:

  1. Initialize the PayTM service in the onCreate() method:
PaytmPGService service = PaytmPGService.getStagingService(); // or PaytmPGService.getProductionService() for production environment
  1. Set up the payment parameters and listener:
HashMap<String, String> paramMap = new HashMap<>();
paramMap.put("MID", "YOUR_MERCHANT_ID");
paramMap.put("ORDER_ID", "UNIQUE_ORDER_ID");
paramMap.put("CUST_ID", "CUSTOMER_ID");
paramMap.put("CHANNEL_ID", "WAP");
paramMap.put("TXN_AMOUNT", "AMOUNT");
paramMap.put("WEBSITE", "WEBSTAGING"); // for staging environment, use "DEFAULT" for production
paramMap.put("INDUSTRY_TYPE_ID", "Retail");
paramMap.put("CALLBACK_URL", "CALLBACK_URL"); // the URL to which PayTM will send the payment response

PaytmOrder order = new PaytmOrder(paramMap);

service.initialize(order, null);

Replace the placeholders with the appropriate values from your merchant account.

  1. Start the payment transaction:
service.startPaymentTransaction(this, true, true, new PaytmPaymentTransactionCallback() {
    public void onTransactionResponse(Bundle inResponse) {
        // Handle the payment response

    public void networkNotAvailable() {
        // Handle network error

    public void clientAuthenticationFailed(String inErrorMessage) {
        // Handle authentication error

    public void someUIErrorOccurred(String inErrorMessage) {
        // Handle UI error

    public void onErrorLoadingWebPage(int iniErrorCode, String inErrorMessage, String inFailingUrl) {
        // Handle web page loading error

    public void onBackPressedCancelTransaction() {
        // Handle transaction cancellation

    public void onTransactionCancel(String inErrorMessage, Bundle inResponse) {
        // Handle transaction cancellation
  1. Handle the payment response in the onTransactionResponse() method:
public void onTransactionResponse(Bundle inResponse) {
    String status = inResponse.getString("STATUS");
    String message = inResponse.getString("RESPMSG");

    if (status != null && status.equals("TXN_SUCCESS")) {
        // Payment was successful
    } else {
        // Payment failed

Step 6: Connect the PayTM activity to your app
Finally, you need to connect the PayTM activity to your e-commerce app. For example, you can add a button to the shopping cart screen and launch the PayTM activity when the user selects the payment option.

That’s it! You have now integrated the PayTM payment gateway into your Android e-commerce app. Remember to replace the placeholder values with your actual merchant credentials and customize the code according to your app’s requirements.

Please note that this guide provides a basic integration example. For a complete and detailed implementation, including error handling and additional features, you may need to refer to the official PayTM documentation or consult their support resources.
