2. Set up Plaid

This step describes how to use FramePay to tokenize payments made using Plaid.


Initial set up

Set up the library and provide the HTML.

Include the FramePay stylesheet

This adds default styles to FramePay elements on the page.


Include the FramePay script

This exposes FramePay in the global JS scope as Rebilly.


Create your checkout form

FramePay automatically gathers data from your checkout form.

To enable this, you must use data-rebilly attributes on your input fields.


Include the HTML mounting points

You must specify an empty HTML element where FramePay renders the Plaid button.

Edit your checkout form to add new HTML element with a unique ID.


Configure FramePay

This step describes the basic set up for mounting.


Initialize FramePay with a configuration object.

FramePay configuration reference


Rebilly data

Provide your publishable API key, organization ID and website ID to connect with the Rebilly API.

Transaction data

Provide the transaction data. Plaid requires amount and currency.


Get the payment token

Mount FramePay onto your page and listen for a payment token.

Mount the Plaid button

After initialization, mount the Plaid button in the container element.

Rebilly.on('ready', ...)



Listen for the generated payment token

When a customer submits the Plaid form, Rebilly creates a payment token.

To retrieve it, listen for the token-ready event.

Rebilly.on('token-ready', ...)
