Integration Options 

Chargebee provides two options to integrate with Paymill.

Chargebee Checkout and Paymill Payment Gateway 

The customer's card information is collected by Chargebee's Checkout and passed on to Paymill. 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 Paymill 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 Paymill. 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 Paymill's service, you will have to migrate your customer's card information to Spreedly to start using Paymill with Chargebee. Contact support  for more information about the migration process.
  2. To configure Paymill in Chargebee, you must have an account with Paymill. If you don't, please create one.
