Step 4: Create and add a one new parameter (phonepe_switch_context) in the existing RazorPay code.

The sample code is mentioned below :

-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
 -d '{
    "amount": 1000,
    "currency": "INR",
    "payment_capture": 1,
    "receipt": "merchant_txn_id",
    "phonepe_switch_context": {\"orderContext\": {\"trackingInfo\":{\"type\": \"HTTPS\",\"url\": \"\"}}}"
