Signed, Sent, Delivered

The xumm platform allows developers and app users to "meet up". While users can simply use the xumm application to track their accounts, balances and transactions, the true power of xumm is the platform available for developers and app users.

XRP transactions are usually user initiated: open your wallet, enter the destination, amount, etc. and then you submit your transaction. In retail / e-commerce (and many other) scenarios, by "reversing" this process, the payment flow will become less prone to mistakes and much more user friendly.

XUMM API for developers

npm version GitHub Actions NodeJS status GitHub Actions Deno status
An XRPL transaction "template" can be posted to the xumm platform API. Your sign request will be stored (called a payload), so the xumm app (iOS/Android) user can open the sign request (by scanning a QR, deeplink or push notification) and resolve (reject / sign) on their own device, keeping keys completely safe.

When a user signs your sign request, he or she is then able to trust your application. In this case an app specific user token will be generated for your application, and future payloads will be delivered straight to the end user with a push notification.

As the xumm platform offers live and API-based status update options with all the information you need to verify the signed transaction on the XRP ledger.
