Open Payment Host
Sell Subscriptions, Newsletters, Digital Files without paying commissions.
Open Payment Host is an easy to run self-hosted, minimalist payments host through which we can easily sell our digital items without paying double commissions while having total control over our sales and data.
Selling digital items on web as an indie requires using platforms where we have to pay double commissions(to the platform and the payment gateway) and our content is forever locked within those platforms.
Open Payment Host is a minimalist yet highly performant Go web application with innovative features which helps indies self-host and sell digital items with little effort.

The default admin email id is
firstname.lastname@example.org and the password is
OpenPaymentHost. You'll be asked to reset the password after login for security reasons. That password is hashed and stored.
You'll be logged out after changing password automatically to login with the new credentials.
Admin email id and default admin password can be changed in the config file (explained below) after the first run. Each time the password is reset in the config file, The password needs to be changed again once logged in for security.
It's recommended to try the demo application first before using the production application. The production application requires a registered domain and special config variables for SSL as detailed in the configuration section.
mkdir oph-production && cd oph-production sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abishekmuthian/open-payment-host/main/samples/oph-production/install-production.sh)"
After the container has started successfully, Stop the container, Set the required production configuration and re-run the container.
fragmenta.json is located in the
secrets folder. It is generated automatically during the first run, After editing the config file the application needs to be restarted for the new configuration to take effect.
fragmenta.json contains configuration for both development and production. The production configuration is loaded when the environment variable
FRAG_ENV=production is set.
Note: Environment variable for production is set automatically when using the docker production setup.
