Build Status Latest Stable Version Total Downloads

Omnipay is a framework agnostic, multi-gateway payment processing library for PHP 5.3+. This package implements BlueSnap support for Omnipay.

BlueSnap is a payment services provider based in Waltham, Massachusetts. In addition to traditional payment gateway services, they provide hosted solutions and a range of global payment methods.


Omnipay is installed via Composer. To install, simply add it to your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "vimeo/omnipay-bluesnap": "2.0.*"

And run composer to update your dependencies:

$ curl -s | php
$ php composer.phar update

(Note that we recommend pinning the minor version. While v2.* will remain fully compatible with Omnipay 2, features added in addition to the base Omnipay features, such as subscriptions, may have breaking changes in a minor version bump.)

Basic Usage

The following gateways are provided by this package:

Some features of the following gateways are provided, but not enough to use them on their own. Feel free to contribute!

  • BlueSnap, for BlueSnap's traditional Payment API. This gateway is almost entirely unimplemented at this time, except for parts of the Reporting API.
  • BlueSnap_Extended, for the BlueSnap Extended Payment API. This is the API you should use if you're hosting your product catalog with BlueSnap. It powers the BuyNow Hosted Checkout, as well as other products. Enough of this API is implemented in this driver to power the BlueSnap_HostedCheckout gateway.

Simple Example

// Set up the gateway
$gateway = \Omnipay\Omnipay::create('BlueSnap_HostedCheckout');

// Start the purchase process
$purchaseResponse = $gateway->purchase(array(
    'storeReference' => '12345',
    'planReference' => '1234567',
    'currency' => 'USD'

if ($purchaseResponse->isSuccessful()) {
} else {
    // error handling

// Now the user is filling out info on BlueSnap's hosted checkout page. Then they get
// redirected back to your site. If you set parameters in the return/callback URL, you
// can access those here.

// Once the transaction has been captured, you'll receive an IPN callback, which you can
// handle like so:

$ipnCallback = $gateway->parseIPNCallback($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
if ($ipnCallback->isCharge()) {
    echo 'Transaction reference: ' . $ipnCallback->getTransactionReference() . PHP_EOL;
    echo 'Amount: ' . $ipnCallback->getAmount() . PHP_EOL;
    echo 'Currency: ' . $ipnCallback->getCurrency() . PHP_EOL;
} elseif ($ipnCallback->isCancellation()) {
    // etc.

More documentation and examples are provided in the Gateway source files.
