Build Status Latest Stable Version SensioLabsInsight


This bundle is partially maintained. No new features will be added but some PR will be merged for compatibility or security.

LexikPayboxBundle makes the use of Paybox payment system easier by doing all the boring things for you.

LexikPayboxBundle silently does :

  • hmac hash calculation of parameters during request.
  • server testing before request to be sure it is up.
  • signature verification with openssl on ipn response.
  • triggers an event on response.

You only need to provide parameters of your transaction, customize the response page and wait for the event triggered on ipn response.


  • PECL hash >= 1.1
  • openssl enabled


Installation with composer :

composer require lexik/paybox-bundle

Add this bundle to your app/AppKernel.php :

public function registerBundles()
    return array(
        // ...
        new Lexik\Bundle\PayboxBundle\LexikPayboxBundle(),
        // ...


Your personnal account informations must be set in your config.yml

# Lexik Paybox Bundle
        production: false        # Switches between Paybox test and production servers (preprod-tpe <> tpe)
        site:        '9999999'   # Site number provided by the bank
        rank:        '99'        # Rank number provided by the bank
        login:       '999999999' # Customer's login provided by Paybox
            key: '01234...BCDEF' # Key used to compute the hmac hash, provided by Paybox

Additional configuration:

        currencies:  # Optionnal parameters, this is the default value
            - '036'  # AUD
            - '124'  # CAD
            - '756'  # CHF

            - '978'  # EUR
            algorithm:      sha512 # signature algorithm
            signature_name: Sign   # customize the signature parameter name

The routing collection must be set in your routing.yml

# Lexik Paybox Bundle
    resource: '@LexikPayboxBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml'

Usage of Paybox System

The bundle includes a sample controller SampleController.php with two actions.

use Symfony\Component\Routing\Generator\UrlGeneratorInterface;

 * Sample action to call a payment.
 * It create the form to submit with all parameters.
public function callAction()
    $paybox = $this->get('lexik_paybox.request_handler');
        'PBX_CMD'          => 'CMD'.time(),
        'PBX_DEVISE'       => '978',
        'PBX_PORTEUR'      => '',
        'PBX_RETOUR'       => 'Mt:M;Ref:R;Auto:A;Erreur:E',
        'PBX_TOTAL'        => '1000',
        'PBX_TYPECARTE'    => 'CB',
        'PBX_EFFECTUE'     => $this->generateUrl('lexik_paybox_sample_return', array('status' => 'success'), UrlGeneratorInterface::ABSOLUTE_URL),
        'PBX_REFUSE'       => $this->generateUrl('lexik_paybox_sample_return', array('status' => 'denied'), UrlGeneratorInterface::ABSOLUTE_URL),
        'PBX_ANNULE'       => $this->generateUrl('lexik_paybox_sample_return', array('status' => 'canceled'), UrlGeneratorInterface::ABSOLUTE_URL),
        'PBX_RUF1'         => 'POST',
        'PBX_REPONDRE_A'   => $this->generateUrl('lexik_paybox_ipn', array('time' => time()), UrlGeneratorInterface::ABSOLUTE_URL),

    return $this->render(
            'url'  => $paybox->getUrl(),
            'form' => $paybox->getForm()->createView(),
 * Sample action of a confirmation payment page on witch the user is sent
 * after he seizes his payment informations on the Paybox's platform.
 * This action must only containts presentation logic.
public function responseAction($status)
    return $this->render(
            'status'     => $status,
            'parameters' => $this->getRequest()->query,

The getUrl() method silently does a server check and throws an exception if the destination server does not respond.

The payment confirmation in your business logic must be done when the instant payment notification (IPN) occurs. The plugin contains a controller with an action that manages this IPN and triggers an event. The event contains all data transmetted during the request and a boolean that tells if signature verification was successful.

The bundle contains a listener example that simply create a file on each ipn call.

namespace Lexik\Bundle\PayboxBundle\Listener;

use Symfony\Component\Filesystem\Filesystem;

use Lexik\Bundle\PayboxBundle\Event\PayboxResponseEvent;

 * Simple listener that create a file for each ipn call.
class PayboxResponseListener
    private $rootDir;

    private $filesystem;

     * Constructor.
     * @param string     $rootDir
     * @param Filesystem $filesystem
    public function __construct($rootDir, Filesystem $filesystem)
        $this->rootDir = $rootDir;
        $this->filesystem = $filesystem;

     * Creates a txt file containing all parameters for each IPN.
     * @param  PayboxResponseEvent $event
    public function onPayboxIpnResponse(PayboxResponseEvent $event)
        $path = $this->rootDir . '/../data/' . date('Y\/m\/d\/');

        $content = sprintf("Signature verification : %s\n", $event->isVerified() ? 'OK' : 'KO');
        foreach ($event->getData() as $key => $value) {
            $content .= sprintf("%s:%s\n", $key, $value);

        file_put_contents($path . time() . '.txt', $content);

To create your own listener, you just have to make it wait for the "paybox.ipn_response" event. For example the listener of the bundle:

    lexik_paybox.sample_response_listener.class: 'Lexik\Bundle\PayboxBundle\Listener\SampleIpnListener'

        class: %lexik_paybox.sample_response_listener.class%
        arguments: [ %kernel.root_dir%, @filesystem ]
            - { name: kernel.event_listener, event: paybox.ipn_response, method: onPayboxIpnResponse }


All transactions parameters are available in the official documentation.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
