Payment gateways

In order to receive payment from clients payment gateways should be configured.

Enabling and configuring payment gateways

Configuration templates for payment gateway settings are present in file. If nothing related to gateways is present in the then probably you upgraded your Fleio installation and you will need to copy the settings template from settings.template file.

Enabling a payment gateway

In order to enable a payment gateway you need to edit the file and uncomment and edit the settings related to the payment gateway that needs to be enabled. Once you finish editing the file restart the fleio backend webserver and navigate to Billing/Gateways section in staff panel - the enabled payment gateway should be detected and displayed there.

For specific configuration parameters details for a payment gateway see instructions below:

  • Paypal - visit log-in with your account and generate credentials at Rest API Apps section then edit PAYPAL_SETTINGS in ( you can generate credentials both for testing and live transactions )

    Note: Make sure you set the payment receiver account to accept all currencies configured in fleio

    Use https://fleio_url/backend/api/billing/gateway/paypal/callback for webhooks to get event notifications

  • Romcard - you need to contact romcard via to obtain your API credentials then edit ROMCARD_SETTINGS in

  • Stripe - login to go to API menu and you should find the API keys then edit STRIPE_SETTINGS in

  • PayU - You need to register at PayU for api credentials then edit PAYU_SETTINGS in

  • PayURO - you need to contact PayURO in order to obtain the api credentials then edit PAYURO_SETTINGS in


  • to get the signing_secret key you first need to create a webhook to https://fleio_url/backend/api/billing/gateway/stripe/callback on the stripe dashboard’s webhooks section

  • Stripe should listen to all events related to Payment Intents:
    • payment_intent.amount_capturable_updated
    • payment_intent.canceled
    • payment_intent.created
    • payment_intent.payment_failed
    • payment_intent.succeeded
  • In order to fully use stripe with recurring payments you need to use at least the 2019-09-09 api version, configurable at

Configuring a payment gateway

After a gateway is enabled you can configure it from Billing/Gateways. The following options are available for a gateway:

  • Enabled - when enabled is checked the payment gateway can be used by staff to add manual payments
  • Visible to user - when visible to user is checked the payment gateway will appear in the payment options available to regular users
  • Fixed fee & Percent fee - the fees used by the payment gateway for each transactions - these will be stored in journal entries related to transactions

Configuring a gateway for recurring payments

If you want to enable recurring payments for a gateway, you will have to first enable and configure the payment gateway as described above. You will also have to enable billing.recurring_payments in file.

After you have enabled and configured the gateway we will have to manually run the migrations in order to add the necessary fields in the database.

First of all, you should consider making a backup of your database before doing any kind of changes to the DB.

After you saved the backup, you will have to activate the environment by running the following command and manually run the django migrate command:

source /var/webapps/fleio/env/bin/activate
cd /var/webapps/fleio/project/
django migrate

After the migration is completed, you should restart all fleio services. Please see Restarting Fleio.

The next step will be to enable the recurring payments from frontend. Just log in as staff in Fleio, go to Billing -> Gateways, click on the desired gateway and check the box “Enable recurring payments”.

Lastly, if you want to enable recurring payments for Stripe/PayuRO, you will have to configure the notification URL in the Stripe/PayuRO panel. The notification URL should be the same as the callback URL that was configured previously (Enabling a payment gateway). Bellow you can find an example for Stripe and PayuRO.
