    Dear Web Payments Working Group Participants,
    This is a Call for Consensus to publish the following specifications as revised Candidate Recommendations:
       Payment Request API

       Payment Method Identifiers

    We would like to thank the editors for preparing these documents.
    PLEASE RESPOND to the proposal by 25 March 2019 (10am ET).
    Note: We also anticipate publishing Basic Card [1] as a Working Group Note along with these Candidate Recommendations.
    For the co-Chairs,

    That the Web Payments Working Group request that the W3C Director approve publication of Payment Request API and Payment Method Identifiers as Candidate Recommendations.
    Please indicate one of the following in your response:
    1. Support the proposal.

    4. Do not support the proposal (please provide rationale).
    5. Support the consensus of the Web Payments Working Group.
    6. Abstain.
    We invite you to include rationale in your response.
    If there is strong consensus by 25 March 2019 (10am ET) for the proposal, it will carry.
    In a 5 February message we documented the primary changes to Payment Request since it was published as a Candidate Recommendation on 9 July 2018:

    In addition to those changes we made a number of changes based on reviews that resulted from outreach to the Privacy Interest Group in February and March:

    Note: The "diff" file for changes to Payment Request API between July 2018 and March 2019 was too complex to be considered useful as part of the review materials.
    There have been only editorial changes since the 14 September 2017 Candidate Recommendation of Payment Method Identifiers.

      Director and reviewed, please include the phrase "FORMAL OBJECTION"
      in your response and be sure to include substantive arguments or

      Payment Request API since the 9 July 2018 draft:

    * Silence will be taken to mean there is no Formal Objection.
    * If there are Formal Objections, the Chairs plan to contact the
      individual(s) who made them to see whether there are changes that
      would address the concern and increase consensus to publish.

    Transition Request Following a Working Group Decision to Publish

      publish, the Chairs will request approval from the W3C Director to

      added to version 1 of Payment Request API. We are handling this
      request as a Formal Objection to discuss with the W3C Director.
