Bambora is a leading online payment provider in Canada and United States. Chargebee allows you to easily connect with Bambora to process your payments.

Here are a few things that you need to know before you choose Bambora:

Countries Supported: Bambora is available for companies based in USA and Canada.
Payment Methods: Chargebee currently supports only Card payments made by Bambora.

Integration Options 

Chargebee provides two options to integrate with Bambora.

Chargebee Checkout and Bambora Payment Gateway:

The customer's card information is collected by Chargebee's Checkout and passed on to Bambora. 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 Bambora 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 Bambora. PCI compliance requirements must be taken care by you.

Setting up Bambora Payment Gateway 


  1. Chargebee uses Spreedly, a third party card vault, to store the customer's card information. If you are using Bambora's service, you will have to migrate your customer's card information to Spreedly to start using Bambora with Chargebee. Contact for more information about the migration process.
  2. To configure Bambora in Chargebee, you must have a account with Bambora. If you don't, please create one.
  3. Setup the Username/Password validation for Bambora API. To setup this, log in to the Bambora online member area and go to Administration > Account Settings > Order Settings. Click the ‘Use username/password validation against transaction' option and enter Username and Password.
  4. Currently, we do not support collecting phone number detail from customers. So you have to make 'billing address' optional at Bambora. To do this, log in to the Bambora online member area and go to Administration > Account Settings > Order Settings and un-check the 'Billing address optional' property.
