Supporting payment with Visa cards in Myanmar in iOS app


Supporting payment with Visa cards in Myanmar in iOS app

I would like to implement payment integration with Visa. As per sources, I have found there are limitations in supported countries of Visa. I have also considered Stripe and apple pay as alternatives, but I would prefer if I can let user pay with their visa card directly via app. As for now, I don't get specifications from my supervisor, but this can be following 2 scenarios.


1. I can pass details like card information and items in cart to API and the backend server will take care of things.

2. I will handle the transaction in iOS app, and send information to API for use as history of purchases.


For second scenario, may I know the correct procedure for implementing features like visa checkout in Myanmar, which is not included in supported country list.
