Step 3

The customer will be directed to an FPS page containing a QR code for payment, which they need to scan using their mobile device.


  • If the customer shop on their mobile device, they need to take a screenshot of the QR code and upload it to the FPS app for the subsequent payment.
  • The QR code has an expiration time. The FPS payment will be unavailable after the time limit, and the customer will have to return to the checkout page and reinitiate payment.
  • If the order is not successfully paid in 60 minutes, its payment status will change to "Expired."

If the payment is successful, the customer will be directed to the order completion page. The Order Status will be updated to "Open", and the Payment Status will be updated to "Paid".

If the customer requests a refund, please note that merchants cannot initiate an online refund in the SHOPLINE admin. You can only process refunds through transfers with the customer.



3. Notes

  • If the customer pays with mobile devices, they need to take a screenshot of the QR code and upload it to the FPS app for the subsequent payment.
  • The customer needs to complete the payment within the expiration time. Otherwise, they will need to return to the checkout page and reinitiate payment.
  • FPS does not support online refunds. If the customer requests a refund, merchants can only process it through transfers. 
  • Refunding duplicate payments: SHOPLINE will verify the details and amounts of the related orders and notify the merchant after 1 business day of detecting the duplicate payments. The refunds t for the duplicate orders will be issued to the merchant 2 business days later. Please note that a surcharge will be incurred for each duplicate order, and the surcharge rates will vary among merchants.
    For example (with the surcharge rate being 1.5%):
    • On Monday, the customer placed a 100$ order but accidentally made 2 more duplicate payments, resulting in 3 orders totaling 300$.
    • On Tuesday, SHOPLINE detected the 3 duplicate orders and notified the merchant about the situation, including the expected amounts of 2 duplicate orders. The total refund amount is calculated as (100 - 1.5)*2 = 197$.
    • On Wednesday, the merchant received 2 refunds totaling 197$. Subsequently, and they can now transfer the refunds back to the customer.
