Choose the Right Integration for You

This section will cover why choosing the proper integration is important, the relevant factors you need to consider, and the pros and cons of each alternative.

Why is choosing the right integration important?

The type of integration you choose is important because it is going to impact your business in several aspects:

  1. Integration and maintenance effort: The type of integration defines the time you will take to build the integration and the level of maintenance you will need to give it.
  2. The effort to add and manage payment methods: depending on the integration you implement, the effort to add or manage payment methods will vary. Our most complete solution allows you to add and manage payment methods from our dashboard with no code. However, other implementations could need some work from your development team.
  3. Compliance requirements: some implementations require a level of compliance, like PCI-DSS certifications or ISO certifications, to work. To use these integrations, you will need to provide these certifications to Yuno.

Types of integration

Yuno provides 6 types of integrations. Below, you can see all the specifications for each of them.

Feature SDK Full SDK Lite Secure Fields Headless SDK Direct Plugins
Add new payment methods without code
Handle hundreds of payment methods with a single API
Tokenize cards and payment methods without code
Use Yuno's PCI-DSS Certification
Use 3D Secure
Use an antifraud solution without code
Set checkout conditions using our dashboard
Customize the look and feel of your checkout using our dashboard

SDK Full

This alternative is the most complete solution that Yuno provides. Using our Full SDK, you can integrate Yuno, minimizing integration, maintenance, and operational efforts without any need for compliance.

With the Full SDK, Yuno handles the user experience and allows you to customize the checkout and payment methods you are showing to your users from our dashboard. This gives you a lot of flexibility and reduces the need to write more code in the future when you add new payment methods and features to your payment stack.

SDK Lite

With the Lite SDK implementation, you have full control of your checkout frontend. Yuno will provide your backend with all the available payment methods you can offer to your clients. With this information, you can decide which payment methods to show in your checkout.

Secure Fields

Secure Fields creates a seamless and secure checkout flow on your website or app. With a set of prebuilt UI components available for Web, Android, and iOS, Secure Fields simplifies the process of collecting and tokenizing sensitive payment card details.

Headless SDK

Headless SDK was designed for merchants who want complete control over the checkout UX and UI. When using the Headless SDK solution, you capture card data on your frontend and send it directly to Yuno. Yuno returns a token you can store on your server and use to create payments. As a result, you have control over the forms used to acquire card data, and you don't need to be PCI-compliant, as the card information will never reach your server.

Direct Flow

Besides our SDK integrations, we allow merchants to connect directly to Yuno's APIs to process payments in case you have specific requirements that need to be addressed with a back-to-implementation. Your company must be PCI-certified to use our server-to-server card payments service, and we will require you to forward your AOC certification to your account manager before beginning the implementation.

Although our main features are not available in this type of integration, you can still access Yuno standardized API, which allows you to handle hundreds of payment methods and tools with just one API.


The most important benefit of plugin integrations is the ease of implementation. With just a few clicks and configuration, you can have our solution. The most evident disadvantage is that Yuno's features depend on the platform, and some features may not be available.

Currently, Yuno supports a plugin integration with the VTEX platform.
