TypeError: ‘NoneType’ object is not iterable while declare context processor in Django project

I want to pass a context value without rendering a page, that’s why I implemented context processor. But when I return a context value from that function it showing me this error. here is my code for payment.py:

def payment_url(request):
    todays_date = date.today()
    now = datetime.datetime.now()
    mcnt_TxnNo = "Txn" + str(todays_date.year) + str('{:02d}'.format(
    todays_date.month)) + str(todays_date.day) + str(now.hour) + 
    str(now.minute) + 
    order_no = "ON" + str(todays_date.year) + str('{:02d}'.format(
    todays_date.month)) + str(todays_date.day) + str(now.hour) + 
    str(now.minute) + 
    secret_key = b"***"
    if request.method == 'POST':
        name = request.POST["clientName"]
        phone = request.POST["phone"]
        address = request.POST["address"]
        email = request.POST["clientEmail"]
        product_name = request.POST["proName"]
        print("product Name", product_name)
        paid = request.POST["paid"]

        string = "***"
        byte_string = bytes(string, 'utf-8')
        hash_code = hmac.new(secret_key.upper(), byte_string, hashlib.sha256)
        hash_text = hash_code.hexdigest()

        jsonObj = {
        // json object

        json_string = json.dumps(jsonObj)
        url = "**"
        headers = {'Content-type': 'application/json', 'Accept': 
        r = requests.post(url, data=json_string, headers=headers)
        j = r.json()['status']
        k = r.json()['data']

        if j == "200":
            payment_id = k['payment_id']
            redirect_url = k['redirect_url']
            payment_link = str(redirect_url) + "?" + str(payment_id)
            return {'payment_link': payment_link}
            return {}

And my setting.py:

    'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
    'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'templates')],
    'APP_DIRS': True,
    'OPTIONS': {
        'context_processors': [

so, basically, I’m working on a project where I created a JSON request and generated a payment_url so I returned it so that I can access it from any page. I also returned an empty dictionary when payment_url is none, But still getting the same error.

return empty dict {} when method is GET.
