Riverty provides you with an API key per country and per site, and you must accept Riverty's terms and conditions for each.



  • You will need an API key from Riverty per country per site.

  • See API reference – Create order > BNPL order.

    Example requests

    For example requests, on the Create order page, in the black sandbox, see Examples > Riverty direct/redirect.
    Set type to direct or redirect.

  • A shopping_cart object is required for all BNPL orders. See Recipes – Include shopping_cart in order .

  • Transactions expire after 90 days.

  • For direct orders, you must display your terms and conditions in your checkout.

User guide


Different billing and shipping addresses are supported.
The Transaction details page in your dashboard only shows the billing address. To retrieve other details, see API reference – Get order.

Collection period

If the customer returns some items from the order and this takes a long time to verify, you can pause the collection period for 2 to 4 weeks.

Phone +31 207 230 230 or email [email protected]

Gift cards

When paying with a gift card and Riverty, customers must enter the gift card details before placing their order, i.e. on your checkout page.

This is because Riverty collects and require precise order specifications. Our platform would interpret the gift card as a discount and generate incorrect order information, e.g. tax calculations.

You are solely responsible for this in your integration.


When you ship the order, you must manually change the order status from Completed to Shipped to:

  • Capture the funds
  • Trigger sending the invoice to the customer
  • Prevent the order from expiring
How to change order status to shipped

In your dashboard

  1. Sign in to your MultiSafepay dashboard .
  2. Go to Transactions > Transactions overview, and then click the relevant transaction.
  3. On the Transaction details page, under Order details, click Change order status.
  4. Change the status to Shipped.
  5. Send the customer the track and trace details, if relevant.

In your backend

If you change the order status in your backend, the following ready-made integrations pass the updated status to your dashboard automatically:

  • Lightspeed, Magento 2, and WooCommerce: When you set the order to Shipped in your backend.
  • Shopware 5: When you set the order to Delivered in your backend.

For other ready-made integrations, make an update order API request.

❗️ Note: Some third-party plugins may not support updating the status via our API.

Strong customer authentication

In some cases, the customer is redirected to an authentication page.
The criteria for when this is triggered are controlled by Riverty.


Due to changes to the Wet op het consumentenkrediet, merchants who apply surcharges to BNPL methods are now deemed credit providers under article 7:57 of the Burgerlijk Wetboek. This requires a permit from the Authority for Financial Markets (AFM).

Riverty therefore strongly recommends discontinuing any surcharges.
