Sample Usage

  1. PayMaya Payments Skeleton Backend is using Sails.js MVC Framework. For more info about Sails.js, head to this link:
  2. You have to put your Secret API Key to the config/env/development.js file.
  3. You also need to base64-encode your Secret API Key and put it in the file api/services/PaymentsService.js. For base64 encoding using Node.js, you can use the following code:
var buffer = new Buffer(sails.config.payments.sandbox.secretApiKey);
var base64EncodedKeys = buffer.toString('base64');

After you have done the steps above, go back to your terminal and re-run your app.
