Integration 

There are 2 ways of integrating Chargebee's Single Page Checkout with your application/website. You can choose the method that suits you the best.

1. Plan URL Integration 

With Chargebee's plan specific hosted page URL integration, it is extremely quick and easy to allow users to sign up using our hosted checkout pages. All you need to do is copy the plan specific hosted page URL that is automatically generated every time you create a new plan, and link it to your product page or sign up button. When the buyer clicks on the link a unique URL is generated and they are redirected to a hosted checkout page. The buyer then enters their details and completes the signup.

To get the plan specific hosted page URL click on a plan name and open it in the web interface, you will find the URL at the bottom of the page.

Redirection 

Once they have submitted their details and the checkout is successful, they need to be forwarded to a "Sign up Successful" or "Thank you" page. For this, you can either use Chargebee's default "Thank You" page included in our hosted page themes or configure a custom URL. This can be done during plan creation or by editing an existing plan.

Note

The redirect option has to be configured separately for each plan that you create. By default, Chargebee uses the "Thank You" page unless you specify a custom redirect URL.

FAQ for Plan URL Integration 



1) Can I specify plan quantity or include addons during sign up through the hosted pages?

By default, quantity is 1 for plans. You can specify a different plan quantity by passing parameters to the hosted page URL. You can also include addons by passing them as parameters as well to the hosted page URL when sending users to hosted checkout page. Click here to learn more.

2) How do I return subscription details in the redirect URL?

When a customer is being taken to the configured redirect URL after a successful checkout, you can get the subscription details from the redirect URL and display that to your customer.

Once you've opened a hosted page using the URL from the plan, you can use the test credit card numbers that appear on the box to your right and simulate a checkout.

2. Hosted Page Integration via API 

Note

Checkout our sample API tutorials here .

Using the API integration method for hosted pages, you can create a new subscription , update an existing subscription  and update a card .

Redirect URLs 


This is where the users will be forwarded to after a successful checkout. When integrating with the hosted pages using the API, the redirect URL needs to be configured in the web interface .

Configure the redirect URL for the hosted checkout pages under Settings > Configure Chargebee > Hosted Page Settings > Hosted Checkout Page.

The Update Card Page URL is the page users will be redirected to after they add/update their card details. This is also used when you send your customers the email to update their card details. Click here to learn more about requesting card details.

To configure the redirect URL, go to Settings > Configure Chargebee > Hosted Page Settings > Hosted Update Card Page.

Can I keep the hosted page inside my website/application?

Yes if you are using the hosted page API integration method. Most often, you wouldn't want your customers to be routed to a different website just for entering their card details. You can keep customers on your page by embedding the hosted page in your website. This is done by setting the embed  value as ‘true' through the API.

You need to make sure that you use SSL on all your payment pages. Also, the payment page would come inside an HTML iFrame element, so you need to be careful when setting the height and width of the frame.
