Braintree Django Module 1.3

This module provides an easy to use interface to Braintree using Django's built-in form system to allow Django developers to easily make use of the Braintree transparent redirect functionality to help with PCI DSS compliance issues.

The btdjango module supports all documented fields in the official transparent redirect documentation. You can selectively turn on/off fields as required by your use scenario (for example, hiding the shipping address in the transaction form).

This module depends on the Braintree Python module, so please install it first.

External Documentation

Simple Example

Download and install the btdjango module, then create a form in one of your views. Start by installing the module in

import braintree


# Braintree sandbox settings
BRAINTREE_ENV = braintree.Environment.Sandbox
BRAINTREE_MERCHANT = 'your_merchant_key'
BRAINTREE_PUBLIC_KEY = 'your_public_key'
BRAINTREE_PRIVATE_KEY = 'your_private_key'

# If you cannot install M2Crypto (e.g. AppEngine):

Next, create a view to use one of the transparent redirect forms:

from btdjango.forms import TransactionForm

def myview(request):
    result = TransactionForm.get_result(request)

    # If successful redirect to a thank you page
    if result and result.is_success:
        return HttpResponseRedirect("/thanks")

    # Create the form. You MUST pass in the result to get error messages!
    myform = TransactionForm(result, redirect_url="")

    # Remove items we don't need

    # Set fields we want passed along
    myform.tr_fields["transaction"]["amount"] = "19.99"

    # Generate the tr_data signed field; this MUST be called!

    return render("template.html", {
        "form": myform,

Then, in your template rendering the form is easy:

<form action="{{ form.action }}" method="POST">
    {{ form.as_table }}
    <button type="submit">Submit order</button>
