Generating a URL

Coinbase Pay SDK can generate a URL that is launched by a browser mechanism (for example, a link or button on web, or a webview, or linking on mobile).

This approach is designed for those who want to use the Coinbase Pay functionality by embedding the SDK, but want additional control over how the experience is triggered.

Step 1: Install Coinbase Pay SDK.

Step 2: Integrate Coinbase Pay in your crypto wallet or app.

Step 3: Call the generateOnRampURL method.

Call the generateOnRampURL method

After integrating Coinbase Pay by creating the Coinbase Pay button and implementing initOnRamp, you call the generateOnRampURL method.

generateOnRampURL Example

import { generateOnRampURL } from "@coinbase/cbpay-js";

const onRampURL = generateOnRampURL({
  appId: "1dbd2a0b94",
  destinationWallets: [
    { address: "0xabcdef", blockchains: ["solana"] }
    { address: "0x123456", assets: ["ETH", "USDC"] }
  ]
});

You can use generated URL to launch a new tab, webview, etc., with either the provided buttons or text.

<a href={onRampURL} target="_blank">Coinbase Pay</a>
