The PaymentResponse object's onpayerdetailchange property is an event handler which is called to handle the payerdetailchange event, which is sent to the PaymentResponse when the user makes changes to their personal information while filling out a payment request form.


paymentResponse.onpayerdetailchange = eventHandlerFunction;


An event handler function which is called to handle the payerdetailchange event when the user makes changes to their personal information while editing a payment request form.


In the example below, onpayerdetailchange is used to set up a listener for the payerdetailchange event in order to validate the information entered by the user, requesting that any mistakes be corrected

// Options for PaymentRequest(), indicating that shipping address,
// payer email address, name, and phone number all be collected.

const options = {
  requestShipping: true,
  requestPayerEmail: true,
  requestPayerName: true,
  requestPayerPhone: true,
const request = new PaymentRequest(methods, details, options);
const response = request.show();

// Get the data from the response

let {
  payerName: oldPayerName,
  payerEmail: oldPayerEmail,
  payerPhone: oldPayerPhone,
} = response;

// Set up a handler for payerdetailchange events, to
// request corrections as needed.

response.onpayerdetailchange = async ev => {
  const promisesToValidate = [];
  const { payerName, payerEmail, payerPhone } = response;

  // Validate each value which changed by calling a function
  // that validates each type of data, returning a promise which
  // resolves if the data is valid.

  if (oldPayerName !== payerName) {
    oldPayerName = payerName;
  if (oldPayerEmail !== payerEmail) {
    oldPayerEmail = payerEmail;
  if (oldPayerPhone !== payerPhone) {
    oldPayerPhone = payerPhone;

  // As each validation promise resolves, add the results of the
  // validation to the errors list

  const errors = await Promise.all(promisesToValidate).then(results =>
    results.reduce((errors, result), Object.assign(errors, result))

  // If we found any errors, wait for them to be corrected

  if (Object.getOwnPropertyNames(errors).length) {
    await response.retry(errors);
  } else {
    // We have a good payment; send the data to the server
    await fetch("/pay-for-things/", { method: "POST", body: response.json() });

await response.retry({
  payer: {
    email: "invalid domain.",
    phone: "invalid number.",
