Getting Started

This is a fairly simple app. It's three parts:

1. Webhook View
2. Model to store the webhook received data
3. Signal emitted on reciept/validation/storage of webhook data

First off, you'll want to add `django-coinbase` to your requirements.txt and
pip install it in your virtualenv. Next you'll want to add `coinbase` to your
`INSTALLED_APPS` setting of your `` file. Lastly, you'll want to
add a urls include to your main `` file for `coinbase.urls`.

There is a signal that you can setup a receiver for in your own project to do
something with the callback data::

def handle_order_received(sender, order, **kwargs):
pass # do something with the order object, like enable a feature based on order.custom contents

You will want to set two different settings:


This is the API Key found at:


This is just a random key you make up and store in your settings and add to the
querystring of the Instant Payment Notifications field (

This is the URL of your site + wherever you rooted the urls include + `/cb/`
followed with the querystring parameter `secret` followed by the value of this

For example::

url(r"^payments/", include("coinbase.urls"))

COINBASE_SHARED_SECRET = "mysecretsauce"

>>> Site.objects.get_current().domain

# Your url would be


To run test suite::

$ pip install Django django-nose django-jsonfield mock requests
$ python
