SDK for the Judopay API

4.4.0 2020-02-19 09:59 UTC


The JudoPay SDK provides you with ability to integrate card payments into your PHP project. Judo's SDK enables a faster, simpler and more secure payment experience within your app.

***Due to industry-wide security updates, versions below 2.0 of this SDK will no longer be supported after 1st Oct 2016. For more information regarding these updates, please read our blog here.***


For the Judo PHP library in order to work correctly with your developer setup, please ensure the following requirements are met:

Getting started

1. Integration

Installation of the SDK is implemented via the Composer package manager. Add the judopay package to your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "judopay/judopay-sdk": "4.0.0"

And then execute:

    $ composer install

Make sure you require the 'vendor/autoload.php' file, so that the Judopay SDK classes are available to your application. For more information on getting started with Composer, see Composer intro.

2. Setup

To start using the SDK, create a new Judopay object with your API credentials:

    $judopay = new \Judopay(
            'apiToken' => 'your-token',
            'apiSecret' => 'your-secret',
            'judoId' => 'your-judo-id'
3. Make a payment

To make a new payment with full card details:

    $payment = $judopay->getModel('Payment');
            'judoId' => 'your_judo_id',
            'yourConsumerReference' => '12345',
            'yourPaymentReference' => '12345',
            'amount' => 1.01,
            'currency' => 'GBP',
            'cardNumber' => '4976000000003436',
            'expiryDate' => '12/15',
            'cv2' => 452

Note: Please make sure that you are using a unique Consumer Reference for each different consumer, and a unique Payment Reference for each transaction.

You can check on the required fields and the format of each field in the Judopay REST API reference. To send the request to the API, call:

    $response = $payment->create();
4. Check the payment result

If the payment is successful, you'll receive a response array like this (see full response here):

        [receiptId] => 520882
        [type] => Payment
        [createdAt] => 2014-08-18T16:28:39.6164+01:00
        [result] => Success
        [amount] => 10.00
        [yourPaymentReference] => 12345

Also important to handle different exceptions in your code. See more details in our error handling section.

    try {
        $response = $payment->create();
        if ($response['result'] === 'Success') {
            echo 'Payment succesful';
        } else {
            echo 'There were some problems while processing your payment';
    } catch (\Judopay\Exception\ValidationError $e) {
        echo $e->getSummary();
    } catch (\Judopay\Exception\ApiException $e) {
        echo $e->getSummary();
    } catch (\Exception $e) {
        echo $e->getMessage();
