Integration Options 

Chargebee provides two options to integrate with BluePay.

Chargebee Checkout and BluePay Payment Gateway 

The customer's card information is collected by Chargebee's Checkout and passed on to BluePay. This option will relieve you from taking care of PCI Compliance requirements. All that you will have to do is fill in and submit this Self Assessment Questionnaire to stay compliant.

Chargebee API and BluePay Payment Gateway 

The customer's card information must be collected at your end and is passed on to Chargebee. Chargebee will then route the card information to BluePay. PCI compliance requirements must be taken care by you.


  1. Chargebee uses Spreedly, a third party card vault, to store the customer's card information. If you are using Bluepay's service, you will have to migrate your customer's card information to Spreedly to start using Bluepay with Chargebee. Contact support  for more information about the migration process.
  2. To configure Bluepay in Chargebee, you must have a merchant account with Bluepay. If you don't, please create one.

Configuring BluePay 

Login to Chargebee Live Site. You can configure BluePay only in your Live Site.

Step 1: Click Settings > Configure Chargebee > Payment Gateway > Add a Gateway > BluePay

Step 2: Enter your Account ID and Secret Key. Click Connect.

Step 3: You have now configured BluePay. To configure the cards setting, click the Manage link.

Step 4: The Cards setting will open up as shown below. Select the necessary settings.

  • Card Verification: Chargebee allows you to verify the customer's card before adding them. In this process a small amount will be debited from the customer's card and will be refunded instantly. In case this authorization fails, the customer cannot add their card. If you wish to activate this authorization, enable card verification.
  • Always retain card information in BluePay when customer updates it: Enable this option if you are using multiple payment gateways and you want the customer's latest card information to be updated in BluePay.

Step 5: Click Save.
