Paybox WooCommerce Payment Gateway


This module adds a Paybox Payment Gateway to your Installation of WooCommerce.

Paybox is a Payment Services Provider in Europe, part of the Verifone Group.

plugin actions in wordpress:

this plugin offers an admin panel from the order section to the settings of Woocommerce.
it adds payment information to the orders details and changes the status of orders (upon reception of an IPN, see below.) and adds payment means on the checkout page.

This plugin takes information from the order and creates a form containing the details of the payment to be made, including parameters configured in the admin panel of the module that identify the mechant.

The plugin checks for availability of the Paybox platform, through a call to our servers.
It then submits with javascript the form to the first available server.

the customer is then presented with a payment page, hosted on the Paybox Platform (urls above).

The Paybox Platform sends an Instant Payment Notification (IPN) to the server when the customer actually made the payment, indicating to the merchant the status of the payment.

the plugin generates a url that can catch the IPN call from Paybox’s server, filtering incoming calls to the Paybox IP address.

if payment is successfull, then the plugin validates the order though woocommerce.


  • The administration panel: payment configuration
  • The administration panel: Paybox Account parameters
  • The Checkout page: Payment method choice (1/ 3 times)
  • The Payment Means choice (hosted at Paybox)
  • The Payment page
  • Once successfully processed, the Payment transaction details appear in the order details


  1. Upload the entire folder woocommerce-paybox to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
    or through WordPress’s plugin upload/install mecanism.

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


What is the HMAC key in the admin panel for ?

The HMAC key is generated on paybox server through your paybox back office. it is used to authenticate your calls to Paybox Server. it is generated on the platform you choose: Production (live) or Pre-Production (test)

My orders are not validated, even though the payment went through ?

The oder paid with Paybox is only validated upon rectpion of a positive Instant Payment Notification (IPN) this IPN is authenticated with the filter on the IP address, if the IP is somewhow changed, the plugin will give a 500 HTTP error.
Avoid Maintenance mode, or allow Paybox IP to go through (,, If the WordPress Installation is in maintenance mode, the Paybox server will not be able to contact it.

Something is not working for me, how can i get help ?

Le support ne répond qu’au téléphone (surtaxé). Par e-mail ou via le support officiel vous n’aurez pas de réponse. Le système comporte de nombreux bugs. Si vous êtes un peu développeur, vous pourrez corriger vous-même. Sinon, tournez-vous vers une autre solution. Pour le paiement sur WooCommerce, il y a d’autres solutions (et notamment des gens plus compétants).
