Django module for interfacing with the CommWeb merchant gateway.

Project Description

django-commweb is a Django module for interfacing with the CommWeb merchant gateway, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s merchant payment facility.

Source is available on GitHub, as is the Changelog.

Supported functions

  • Purchase (one-step transaction)



  1. Install using pip:

    $ pip install django-commweb
  2. Add the ‘commweb’ app to the bottom of your INSTALLED_APPS setting:

  3. Add the required settings (provided by the CommWeb Support Line) for the test merchant to your project’s

  4. Run the tests to ensure your merchant details are set up correctly by running a Django shell as follows:

    $ python shell
    >>> import unittest
    >>> from commweb.test.test_responses import TestResponses
    >>> suite = unittest.TestLoader().loadTestsFromTestCase(TestResponses)
    >>> unittest.TextTestRunner(verbosity=2).run(suite)
    test_approved (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    test_card_expired (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    test_declined_2 (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    test_declined_E (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    test_failed (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    test_insufficient_credit (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    test_no_reply (commweb.test.test_responses.TestResponses) ... ok
    Ran 7 tests in 2.593s
    <unittest.runner.TextTestResult run=7 errors=0 failures=0>


Two options are available for intergrating django-commweb into your Django app.


A payment handler for Cartridge is provided by commweb.cartridge.cartridge_payment_handler. You only need to set SHOP_HANDLER_PAYMENT in your project’s settings file to activate this functionality:

SHOP_HANDLER_PAYMENT = 'commweb.cartridge_hook.cartridge_payment_handler'

Using the API directly

See for an example of how to call the API directly. The API module is located at commweb.purchase.
