Frames migration guide

Follow this guide to upgrade from the legacy version of Frames (v1) to the newest version (v2).

Step 1: Replace the script

Find the following script tag:
<script src="https://cdn.checkout.com/js/frames.js">

Replace it with this tag:
<script src="https://cdn.checkout.com/js/framesv2.min.js">

Step 2: Rename the event handlers

Rename cardTokenisednow to cardTokenized and cardTokenisationFailed to cardTokenizationFailed.

If you have custom styling, skip to step 4.

If you don't have any custom styling, continue to step 3.

Step 3 (optional): Add a style tag

To get started quickly, you can use our default styling:

<style>*,*::after,*::before{box-sizing:border-box}html{padding:1rem;background-color:#FFF;font-family:-apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Oxygen, Ubuntu, Cantarell, 'Open Sans', 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif}#payment-form{width:31.5rem;margin:0 auto}iframe{width:100%}.one-liner{display:flex;flex-direction:column}#pay-button{border:none;border-radius:3px;color:#FFF;font-weight:500;height:40px;width:100%;background-color:#13395E;box-shadow:0 1px 3px 0 rgba(19,57,94,0.4)}#pay-button:active{background-color:#0B2A49;box-shadow:0 1px 3px 0 rgba(19,57,94,0.4)}#pay-button:hover{background-color:#15406B;box-shadow:0 2px 5px 0 rgba(19,57,94,0.4)}#pay-button:disabled{background-color:#697887;box-shadow:none}#pay-button:not(:disabled){cursor:pointer}.card-frame{border:solid 1px #13395E;border-radius:3px;width:100%;margin-bottom:8px;height:40px;box-shadow:0 1px 3px 0 rgba(19,57,94,0.2)}.card-frame.frame--rendered{opacity:1}.card-frame.frame--rendered.frame--focus{border:solid 1px #13395E;box-shadow:0 2px 5px 0 rgba(19,57,94,0.15)}.card-frame.frame--rendered.frame--invalid{border:solid 1px #D96830;box-shadow:0 2px 5px 0 rgba(217,104,48,0.15)}.success-payment-message{color:#13395E;line-height:1.4}.token{color:#b35e14;font-size:0.9rem;font-family:monospace}@media screen and (min-width: 31rem){.one-liner{flex-direction:row}.card-frame{width:318px;margin-bottom:0}#pay-button{width:175px;margin-left:8px}}</style>

Step 4 (optional): Rename or replace the HTML tags 

Replace the div tags inside the form element with the new ones from the example below. Make sure to update the card-frame class with your custom frameSelector if you have changed it.

<div class="one-liner">
  <div class="card-frame">
    <!-- form will be added here -->
  </div>
  <!-- add submit button -->  
  <button id="pay-button" disabled>
    PAY GBP 24.99
  </button>
</div>
<p class="success-payment-message"></p>

The div with the one-liner class is used by our default style. You can safely remove it if you're providing your own.

Step 5 (optional): Rename containerSelector

If you were using the containerSelector option in Frames v1, make sure to rename it to frameSelector.  

Please note:

frameSelector is not a required field. Without it, Frames v2 will use card-frame by default.

Deprecated options

theme and themeProvider have been deprecated and can be safely removed. They will not have any effect on Frames v2.

Step 6: Rename the form element selectors

Rename the paymentForm selector to payment-form and the payNowButton selector to pay-button.

Step 7: Update the JavaScript

Wherever needed, update the JavaScript with the new version. Both types of initialization are supported.
