GitHub Workflow Status Codecov PyPI - Python Version

A simple library to manage Satispay payments following the Web-button flow.



You can install this package with pip: pip install satispaython.


Type hints are available for all public functions.

Key generation

First of all you need a RSA private key. You may generate the key by yourself or you may use the provided utility functions:

from satispaython.utils.utils import generate_key, write_key

# Generate a key
rsa_key = generate_key()

# Write the key into a file
write_key(rsa_key, 'path/to/file.pem')

# You can also generate a key and save it directly to a provided path
rsa_key = generate_key('path/to/file.pem')

In order to load the key from a PEM encoded file you may use the utility function:

from satispaython.utils.utils import load_key

rsa_key = load_key('path/to/file.pem')

:information_source: The function write_key stores the key in the PEM format. If you generate the key with any other method and you would like to use the load_key function, please make sure the key is stored within a file in the PEM format.

:information_source: Satispaython key management is based on cryptography so all the functions which require an RSA key parameter expect an object of the class RSAPrivateKey. If you don't use the load_key function then make sure your key is an instance of RSAPrivateKey.

You may protect your key with a password simply adding the password parameter:

write_key(rsa_key, 'path/to/file.pem', 'mypassword')
rsa_key = load_key('path/to/file.pem', 'mypassword')
rsa_key = generate_key('path/to/file.pem', 'mypassword')

Both functions accept PathLike objects:

from pathlib import Path

path = Path('path/to/file.pem')

rsa_key = generate_key(path, 'mypassword')
write_key(rsa_key, path, 'mypassword')
rsa_key = load_key(path, 'mypassword')

Satispay API

Satispaython web requests are based on httpx so the following functions return an instance of Response. On success, the Satispay API responds with a JSON encoded body, so you can simply check for the response.status_code and eventually get the content with response.json().

:information_source: If you need to use the Sandbox endpoints be sure to read the proper section.

In order to use the Satispay API simply import satispaython:

import satispaython

Then you can:

Obtain a key-id using a token

response = satispaython.obtain_key_id(token, rsa_key)

:information_source: The token is the activation code that can be generated from the Satispay Dashboard (or provided manually for Sandbox account).

:warning: Tokens are disposable! The key-id should be saved right after its creation.

Make an authentication test

response = satispaython.test_authentication(key_id, rsa_key)

:information_source: Authentication tests work on Sandbox endpoints only.

Create a payment

response = satispaython.create_payment(key_id, rsa_key, amount_unit, currency, body_params=None, headers=None)

You may use the utility function format_datetime to get a correctly formatted expiration_date to supply to the request:

from datetime import datetime, timezone, timedelta
from satispaython.utils.utils import format_datetime

expiration_date = + timedelta(hours=1)
expiration_date = format_datetime(expiration_date)

Get payment details

response = satispaythonsatispaython.get_payment_details(key_id, rsa_key, payment_id, headers=None)

Sandbox endpoints

By default satispaython points to the production Satispay API. If you need to use the Sandbox endpoints, simply set the staging parameter to True:

response = satispaython.obtain_key_id(rsa_key, token, staging=True)
response = satispaython.create_payment(key_id, rsa_key, amount_unit, currency, body_params=None, headers=None, staging=True)
response = satispaython.get_payment_details(key_id, rsa_key, payment_id, headers=None, staging=True)

Clients, AsyncClients and Auth

Satispaython offers specialized versions of httpx's Client, AsyncClient and Auth classes:

from satispaython import SatispayClient

with SatispayClient(key_id, rsa_key, staging=True) as client:
    response = client.create_payment(amount_unit, currency, body_params=None, headers=None)
    response = client.get_payment_details(payment_id, headers=None)
from satispaython import AsyncSatispayClient

async with AsyncSatispayClient(key_id, rsa_key, staging=True) as client:
    response = await client.create_payment(amount_unit, currency, body_params=None, headers=None)
    response = await client.get_payment_details(payment_id, headers=None)
import httpx
from satispaython import SatispayAuth

auth = SatispayAuth(key_id, rsa_key)
url = ''
response =, auth=auth)
