So the first question is.

This Project includes.
Integration of instamojo in our website using the API Provided by Instamojo.
So before we get started, there are the couple of things you have to do.
- Go to https://www.instamojo.com/ and create an account and fill in all the details they ask correctly to get your hands on their API.
- Go To https://test.instamojo.com/ for creating the account on the test/sandbox website to test out the API before getting your code online.
- then click on API & Plugins on the side bar and on the next page you will be provided with your Private key, Private Auth key, Private Salt.
- Just save those things.
NOTE : instamojo doesn’t allow localhost or 127.0.0.1 for testing their API so you need to have an online server, if you have one, cool enough and if you don’t have one the create one Here.
Instamojo has 2 different website
- For Live Production (i.e. When you are ready to upload it on your server and start your website.).
- For Testing purposes (i.e. When you are just testing the checkout system.).
Both of the website gives you
- Private API Key
- Private Auth Token
- Private Salt
And these Credentials are different for live and testing versions.
So let’s get started.
First of all you can see the demo to see the live working checkout system
Here are the checkout Details for demo. which you can use for checkout.
Card Number – 4242 4242 4242 4242
Expiry Date – 01/20
CVV – 111
Second Factor Authentication Code – 1221
First Open Webhook.php and see Line 20 and replace YOUR_PRIVATE_SALT to your private salt and on line 28 Change YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS to your Email id.
Now open Pay.php and see line no.11 and change YOU_PRIVATE_API_KEY & YOUR_PRIVATE_AUTH_TOKEN to your credentials. And on line 24,25 change your path.
And now Open thankyou.php and do the same on line 39.
And The rest files need no change but you can change it as per your need as per your Project Demand.
Right now the Codes are written for the Testing Version only but if you wanted to use it on live version then your just have to find
https://test.instamojo.com/api/1.1/ and Replace it with https://www.instamojo.com/api/1.1/payment-requests/ in every file.
