> Hi Web Payments WG and WPIG (bcc'd),
> Exciting news. The engineering team at Digital Bazaar has been hard at work
> creating a production grade polyfill for both the Payment Request API and
> the Payment Handler API in Chrome, Safari, Edge, and Firefox.
> We're announcing a beta release to developers today.
> An introductory video giving some background as well as recordings showing
> it working in all major browsers can be found here (6 minutes
> runtime):
> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb-gWT1t1Rg

> What does this mean for the W3C Web Payments work?
> * When the polyfill hits production, we expect that ~90% of all browsers
>   (roughly 2.8 billion people) will immediately get support for the Web
>   Payments APIs across desktop and mobile browsers.
> * Web developers won't need to wait for browsers to implement the latest
>   Web Payments API in order to deploy to their customers. Instead, the
>   polyfill will provide missing browser features until the browsers
>   support them.
> * This will enable us to more rapidly test and deploy new payment
>   features, greatly reducing the cost of innovation in the group, and
>   enabling more people to participate in the design and development
>   process.
> * The polyfill is one more implementation of the specs.
> What is next?
> * We'll continue to harden the polyfill for production usage.
> * We plan to provide technical review feedback on both specs after
>   having implemented them.
> * We'll pick an open license that works for all orgs and implementers.
> * We still need to implement some simple things, like better
>   animations/transitions when selecting payment instruments and things
>   like shipping address selection.
> * There are some issues in Safari that require preference changes that
>   we're trying to work around.
> * The foundation of the polyfill is, as predicted, almost exactly the
>   same as the verifiable claims polyfill, which may have repercussions
>   for how these sorts of APIs are designed at W3C. We'll produce a
>   report detailing the similarities before W3C TPAC.
> We'll bring up these topics as the work progresses in the WPWG. This email is
> just a heads up regarding this new capability for the Web Payments groups.
