Merchant System

Order Creation

https://data.mtgox.com/api/1/generic/private/merchant/order/create

Required Parameters:
  • currency: <currency>
  • amount: <amount as float>

or

  • amount_int: <amount as int>
  • return_success: <string> Where to redirect the user on payment success
  • return_failure: <string> Where to redirect the user on cancellation
Optional Parameters:
  • description: <string> A small description that will appear on the payment page (defaults to "Payment to <user_login>")
  • ipn: <string> URL that will be called by our services once the payment is complete (more below)
  • data: <string> Custom data returned by the IPN
  • email: int Set to 1 to receive an email for each successful payment
  • autosell: int Set to 1 to automatically sell received bitcoins at market price
  • multipay: int Set to 1 to allow multiple payments on the same transaction ID
  • instant_only: int Set to 1 to only allow MtGox users to pay on this transaction
Returns
  • transaction: <uuid> A unique transaction ID
  • payment_url: <string> URL on which to redirect the user


IPN

The IPN (Instant payment notification) is a mechanism that POST data about a successful payment an a custom URL located on your website right after the payment as been validated. It is signed with your API key. Your website is supposed then to either acknowledge the IPN by returning "[OK]" as is. Anything else will be counted as an error and the system will try sending the IPN back every 30 minutes until it succeed.

Content

The IPN POST data will always contain the following:

  • id: <uuid> The transaction ID generated by the initial call
  • payment_id: <uuid> The payment ID
  • status: <enum> Either paid, partial, cancelled or closed (4th one shouldn't happen)

If the status is partial, the user choose to pay without a MtGox account and bitcoins where detected on the network, we then send you an IPN telling you the amount of bitcoins pending and valid, pending bitcoins have less than 6 confirmations so it is up to you to accept or not the transaction based on that value. Your merchant account will be credited only after the 6 confirmations on our end.

Additional content of the partial IPN:

  • amount_pending: <amount as int> The amount still pending confirmations
  • amount_valid: <amount as int> The amount of bitcoins for which we had 6 confirmations
  • amount_total: <amount as int> The total amount, pending and valid, on the payment address

If the status is paid:

  • amount: <amount as int> The amount paid by the user
  • currency: <currency> The currency used to pay (should always be BTC for now)
  • method: <enum> The payment method, for now MTGOXBTC
  • date: <date> The payment date

If data was provided in the initial call:

  • data: <string> The data provided when creating the transaction
Signature

IPNs are now signed with the user secret like the original query to prevent fraudulents IPNs Two headers are added to the request:

  • HTTP_REST_KEY: <uuid> The ReST key used for the query
  • HTTP_REST_SIGN: <string> The IPN signature

HTTP_REST_SIGN is a base64 encoded sha512 HMAC of the post data using your ReST secret as a key.

See below for examples:

PHP
<?php
 
function mtgox_is_valid_ipn() {
    $secret = '';
    $raw_post_data = file_get_contents("php://input");
    $good_sign = hash_hmac('sha512', $raw_post_data, base64_decode($secret), true);
    $sign = base64_decode($_SERVER['HTTP_REST_SIGN']);
    return ($sign == $good_sign);
}

Dynamic Button

While you can create buttons through the MtGox website, those are generated with the normal API. To display a button with your API transaction, first add the following markup to your page:

<span class="mtgox" data-id="<txid>" data-amount="<amount>" data-currency="<currency>">
  <a href="https://payment.mtgox.com/<txid>">
    <img src="https://payment.mtgox.com/img/mtgox-checkout.png" border="0" />
  </a>
</span>
<!-- You only need the following tag once on the page, after all the buttons (for example on the last line before closing the <body> tag) -->
<![if !IE]><script type="text/javascript" src="https://payment.mtgox.com/js/button.min.js"></script><![endif]>

Make sure to change <txid>, <amount> and <currency> to whatever value apply to that transaction.
