Bellow you can find detailed specification of transmissible and receivable data.

If it's available (there is PHP with required version in your server), we strongly advise to use libwebtopay library to generate requests and process callbacks.

Structure of request data

You should send data of the form in GET or POST method. Address: https://www.paysera.com/pay/

There are always 2 fields sent: data and sign.

Generating request fields from parameters

  1. All parameters are joined to URL-encoded string. For example:
    array('param1' => 'abc', 'param2' => 'Some string with symbols %=&')
    'param1=abc&param2=Some+string+with+symbols+%25%3D%26'
    
    In PHP language this is done by function http_build_query
  2. Result string is encoded in base64 encoding. For example:
    'param1=abc&param2=Some+string+with+symbols+%25%3D%26'
    'cGFyYW0xPWFiYyZwYXJhbTI9U29tZStzdHJpbmcrd2l0aCtzeW1ib2xzKyUyNSUzRCUyNg=='
    
    In PHP language this is done by function base64_encode
  3. In the result string symbols "/" are replaced with "_", and symbols "+" with "-". We get similar to base64 encoding, which is safe to send in URL without further processing. For example:
    'MViDYlV7V0iHR2w2OkJjRFFpY11hizJDhk+EZjl/'
    'MViDYlV7V0iHR2w2OkJjRFFpY11hizJDhk-EZjl_'
    
    In PHP language this is done by function str_replace or strtr.
  4. The final result string is signed - the sign parameter is generated. Algorithm to generate sign parameter:
    sign = md5(data + password)
    Here md5 is cryptographic hash function, data - encoded parameters, password - your project password.
