Library that helps create the XML necessary for online payments with MobilPay

Project description


mobilPy helps you with everything you need to implement mobilPay’s online payment solution. Steps: - create an account - get approved - create a merchant - download keys (private and public) - copy the signature (just a string)

NOTE You will have two private keys: for testing and production. The public key is the same.


To install the library, run:

pip install mobilpy


from mobilpy import Client

# the signature for your account
signature = 'DLAN-1R5V-19EN-XXXX-NFJA'
# the path to the public key
public_key = "./sandbox.DLAN-1R5V-19EN-XXXX-NFJA.public.cer"
# the private_key
private_key = "./sandbox.DLAN-1R5V-19EN-XXXX-NFJA.private.key"

client = Client(signature=signature, public_key=public_key, private_key=private_key)

# optional dict containing details about the customer
# if they are sent, the customer will have a short checkout by skipping the second step in the payment flow
billing_details = {
    "first_name": "",
    "last_name": "",
    "address": "",
    "phone": "",
    "email": ""
# optional dict with details that you would need internally
# these are returned when the webhook is called
params = {
    "subscription_id": "",
    "basket_id": "",

options = {
    "order_id": "" # int/string, max 64 length
    "currency": "RON", # string, RON or other
    "amount": 1, # float, between 0.10 and 99999
    "customer_id": "", # int/string
    "details": "",  # string, description for this transaction
    "billing": billing_details, # dict, OPTIONAL
    "params": params, # dict, OPTIONAL,

    # the webhook where the response from mobilPay will be sent
    "confirm_url": "",
    # the url where the user will be redirected
    "return_url": ""
response = client.create_payment_data(**options)

The response is an dict that has two keys: env_key and data. These need to be used in the front end and make the request to mobilPay.

For example, the HTML might look like this:

<form action="" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="env_key" value="{{ env_key }}">
    <input type="hidden" name="data" value="{{ data }}">

    <input type="submit" value="Send">

The POST urls for the form are:



mobilPay will make a POST request to the url you set as confirm_url. mobilPy has methods to help you parse it and offer a response.

post = # get the post data
env_key = post.get('env_key')
data = post.get('data')

client = Client(signature=signature, public_key=public_key, private_key=private_key)

request_xml = client.decrypt_message(env_key, data)
request_object = client.parse_webhook_request(request_xml)

# do some magic

In order to check if the transaction was successful you need to check error_code AND action:

transaction_successful = request_object.get('error_code') == '0' and request_object.get('action') == 'confirmed'
if transaction_successful:
  # everything is ok

Creating a response

You need to let mobilPay know if everything is ok on your end or if something weird happened. If everything is ok you can create a response like this:

message = "All good captain"
response_xml = client.create_reponse(message=message)

If you had an error:

# message that will help you debug. it will appear in your dashboard
message = "Everything is on fire"
# this can be "1" (temporary error) or "2" (permanent error)
error_type = "1"
# your internal error code. a number maybe. OPTIONAL
error_code = ''
response_xml = client.create_reponse(message=message, error_type=error_type, error_code=error_code)

The response doesn’t need to be encrypted. Just respond with the xml.


If a transaction was credited from the Dashboard, mobilPay will make a new webhook POST. You can check for that:

# if the transaction was credited from mobilpay
if request_object.get('action') == 'credit':
  # do something
  # return a reponse


Some things that still need to be done:

  • tests
  • add support for: instalements, recurrence
  • maybe add prefilled credit card data payments?
