The simplest way to install SDK is to use Composer:

composer require gopay/payments-sdk-php

Basic usage

// minimal configuration
$gopay = GoPay\Api::payments([
    'goid' => 'my goid',
    'clientId' => 'my id',
    'clientSecret' => 'my secret',
    'gatewayUrl' => 'gateway url'

// full configuration
$gopay = GoPay\Api::payments([
    'goid' => 'my goid',
    'clientId' => 'my id',
    'clientSecret' => 'my secret',
    'gatewayUrl' => 'gateway url',
    'scope' => GoPay\Definition\TokenScope::ALL,
    'language' => GoPay\Definition\Language::CZECH,
    'timeout' => 30


Required fields

Required field Data type Documentation
goid string default GoPay account used in createPayment if target is not specified
clientId string
clientSecret string
gatewayUrl string test or production environment?

Optional fields

Optional field Data type Default value Documentation
scope string GoPay\Definition\TokenScope::ALL
language string GoPay\Definition\Language::ENGLISH language used in createPayment if lang is not specified + used for localization of errors
timeout int 30 Browser timeout in seconds

Available methods

API SDK method
Create a payment $gopay->createPayment(array $payment)
Get status of a payment $gopay->getStatus($id)
Refund a payment $gopay->refundPayment($id, $amount)
Create a recurring payment $gopay->createRecurrence($id, array $payment)
Cancel a recurring payment $gopay->voidRecurrence($id)
Capture a preauthorized payment $gopay->captureAuthorization($id)
Capture a preauthorized payment partially $gopay->captureAuthorizationPartial($id, array $capturePayment)
Void a preauthorized payment $gopay->voidAuthorization($id)
Get payment card details $gopay->getCardDetails($cardId)
Delete a saved card $gopay->deleteCard($cardId)
Get allowed payment methods for a currency $gopay->getPaymentInstruments($goid, $currency)
Get all allowed payment methods $gopay->getPaymentInstrumentsAll($goid)
Generate an account statement $gopay->getAccountStatement(array $accountStatement)

SDK response? Has my call succeed?

SDK returns wrapped API response. Every method returns GoPay\Http\Response object. Structure of json/__toString should be same as in documentation. SDK throws no exception. Please create an issue if you catch one.

$response = $gopay->createPayment([/* define your payment  */]);
if ($response->hasSucceed()) {
    echo "hooray, API returned {$response}";
    return $response->json['gw_url']; // url for initiation of gateway
} else {
    // errors format:
    echo "oops, API returned {$response->statusCode}: {$response}";
Method Description
$response->hasSucceed() checks if API returns status code 200
$response->json decoded response, returned objects are converted into associative arrays
$response->statusCode HTTP status code
$response->rawBody raw body from HTTP response

Are required fields and allowed values validated?

No. API validates fields pretty extensively so there is no need to duplicate validation in SDK. It would only introduce new type of error. Or we would have to perfectly simulate API error messages. That's why SDK just calls API which behavior is well documented in

Advanced usage

Initiation of the payment gateway

// create payment and pass url to template 
$response = $gopay->createPayment([/* define your payment  */]);
if ($response->hasSucceed()) {

        $gatewayUrl => $response->json['gw_url'],
        $embedJs => $gopay->urlToEmbedJs()
        // render template

Inline gateway

<form action="<?= $gatewayUrl ?>" method="post" id="gopay-payment-button">
  <button name="pay" type="submit">Pay</button>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="<?= $embedJs ?>"></script>

Redirect gateway

<form action="<?= $gatewayUrl ?>" method="post">
  <button name="pay" type="submit">Pay</button>

Asynchronous initialization using JavaScript

Enums (Code lists)

Instead of hardcoding bank codes string you can use predefined enums. Check using enums in create-payment example

Type Description
Language Payment language, localization of error messages
Token scope Authorization scope for OAuth2
Payment enums Enums for creating payment
Response enums Result of creating payment, executing payment operations
ItemType enums Type of an item
VatRate enums VatRate of an item

Framework integration

Cache access token

Access token expires after 30 minutes so it's expensive to use new token for every request. Unfortunately it's default behavior of GoPay\Token\InMemoryTokenCache. But you can implement your cache and store tokens in Memcache, Redis, files, ... It's up to you.

Your cache must implement GoPay\Token\TokenCache interface. Be aware that there are two scopes (TokenScope) and SDK can be used for different clients (clientId, gatewayUrl). So client passed to methods is unique identifier (string) that is built for current environment. Below you can see example implementation of caching tokens in file:

// register cache in optional service configuration
$gopay = GoPay\payments(
    [/* your config */],
    ['cache' => new PrimitiveFileCache()]

use GoPay\Token\TokenCache;
use GoPay\Token\AccessToken;

class PrimitiveFileCache implements TokenCache
    public function setAccessToken($client, AccessToken $t)
        file_put_contents(__DIR__ . "/{$client}", serialize($t));

    public function getAccessToken($client)
        $file = __DIR__ . "/{$client}";
        if (file_exists($file)) {
            return unserialize(file_get_contents($file));
        return null; 

Log HTTP communication

You can log every request and response from communication with API. Check available loggers below. Or you can implement your own logger, just implement GoPay\Http\Log\Logger interface.

// register logger in optional service configuration
$gopay = GoPay\payments(
    [/* your config */],
    ['logger' => new GoPay\Http\Log\PrintHttpRequest()]
Available logger Description
NullLogger Default logger which does nothing
PrintHttpRequest Prints basic information about request and response, used in remote tests
