CHIP Collect – Pabbly Subscription Billing: getting started

Pabbly Subscription Billing provides a payment form, allowing merchants to rapidly initiate collections. This approach becomes particularly useful for those who wish to extend the customization of their payment forms beyond the capabilities of the CHIP Payment Link module.

In this article, we will guide you through the process of integrating CHIP Collect with Pabbly Subscription Billing.

Necessary Prerequisites

In this guide, we’ll explain how to self-host your integration of CHIP Collect with Pabbly Subscription Billing. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Domain name
  • Web hosting (PHP, MySQL/MariaDB database)
1. Installation Process

First, download the PHP script from the following link:

https://github.com/CHIPAsia/pabbly-subscription-chip-gateway/archive/refs/heads/main.zip

After downloading, extract the zip file and upload it to your web hosting. Ensure that the directory is publicly accessible.

Next, rename the file ‘auth-sample.php’ to ‘auth.php’ and proceed to modify it.

In the ‘auth.php’ file, adjust the following configurations:

  • PABBLY_API_KEY: Insert your Pabbly API Key
  • PABBLY_API_SECRET: Input your Pabbly API Secret
  • CHIP_SECRET_KEY: Enter your CHIP Secret Key
  • CHIP_BRAND_ID: Fill in your CHIP Brand ID
  • DB_NAME: Indicate your Database Name
  • DB_USER: Specify your Database Username
  • DB_PASSWORD: Put in your Database Password
  • DB_HOST: Provide your Database Host URL
  • INSTALLATION_URL: Give the Script Installation URL

You don’t need to execute a migration for the database schema. It will be created automatically upon the first purchase attempt.

Note: You can obtain the Pabbly API Key and Pabbly API Secret from Pabbly Subscription Settings >> API Settings.
2. Configuration Process

Start by navigating to ‘Pabbly Subscription >> Settings >> Payment Gateway Integration’.

In the list of payment methods, select ‘Custom’ and click the ‘Connect Now’ button.

Next, provide the ‘Gateway Name’ as FPX/Visa/Mastercard (based on your available payment methods) and the ‘Gateway URL’ (dependent on your domain name and directory name).

Once all fields are filled, click on the ‘Submit’ button.

3. Integration is Ready

With all settings in place, your Pabbly Subscription form is now fully integrated with CHIP Collect.
