Hi wondered if you can help me, I have been working on a project for the last 2 and a half years just for fun thanks to all the information freely distributed on the internet I have achieved what I believe is called a Platform app for both Android and Apple that will serve multiple business and there customers within the umbrella of my Xamarin cross platform app. Now that I believe im getting to the end of that app I felt that adding a payment Gateway would be my next step but to my amazement no one is talking about it, no videos or websites with lots of people asking the question for a solution and solutions that have been given are currently deprecated or not working
So my current solution to the problem is either using Judo’s GitHub cross platform demo that is currently deprecated on the part that uses Android pay instead of Google Pay and then hopefully able to swap out the Payment Gateway of my choice later in order to move me in the right direction but looks a lot of work with a few unknowns or just building a Stripe Elements web site page and have my app speak to my web server before passing the transaction over to stripe but even through this appears to be my only solution I keep wondering why stripe or the Xamarin team have not offered a solution like Judo pay and wonder if that’s because it is assumed that the web site is the solution or is it that im just blind and not asking the right questions.
I suppose in the perfect world I would have found a site that takes the Google pay and Apple pay solution and stick them in a converted c# class sitting in there corresponding Xamarin cross platform renderer and then pulled each depending on device used and then the same for the Gateway in order to pass on the token and cost but all I am seeing is the code for Android studio in Java and Kotlin as well as Swift or objective C for Apple.
If no one has the solution I suppose I will brave the web site as this looks to have all the answers to the questions in my head I just worry as this might imply that sending the personal users data to my server first if any may cause me more issues than if I was just sending from phone to Stripe server.
