Payment Plugins

Payment plugins are used both in the front-end and the backend. They must be created as classes deriving from the base class vmPaymentPlugin:

class plgVmPayment<myPlugin> extends vmPaymentPlugin {
    function plgVmPayment<myPlugin>(&$subject, $config) {
        $this->_pelement = basename(__FILE__, '.php');    // Required!
        $this->_createTable();                // Required, see below
        parent::__construct($subject, $config);
    }
}
Below is the list with events and a description on what moment they are fired.
  • plgVmOnSelectPayment() - This event is fired during the checkout process. It allows the shopper to select one of the available payment methods.
    It should display a radio button (name: paym_id) to select the payment method. Other information (like credit card info) might be selected as well, depending on the plugin.
    Return:
    It must return the HTML code for displaying the form (radio button and optional extra selections).
    Parameters:
    1. (VirtueMartCart object) The cart object
    2. (integer, default 0) ID of an already selected payment method ID, if any
  • plgVmOnPaymentSelectCheck() - This event is fired after the payment method has been selected. It can be used to store
    additional payment info in the cart.
    Return:
    Plugins that were not selected must return null, otherwise True of False must be returned indicating Success or Failure.
    Parameters:
    1. (VirtueMartCart object) The cart object
  • plgVmOnCheckoutCheckPaymentData() - This event is fired during the checkout process. It can be used to validate the payment data as entered by the user.
    Return:
    Plugins that were not selected must return null, otherwise True of False must be returned indicating Success or Failure.
    Parameters:
    None
  • plgVmOnConfirmedOrderStorePaymentData() - This event is fired after the payment has been processed; it stores the payment method-specific data.
    All plugins must reimplement this method.
    Return:
    If the plugin is NOT actually executed (not the selected payment method), this method must return NULL
    If this plugin IS executed, it MUST return the order status code that the order should get. This triggers the stock updates if required
    Parameters:
    1. (integer) The ordernumber being processed
    2. (object) Data from the cart
    3. (array) Price information for this order
  • plgVmOnShowOrderPaymentBE() - This method is fired when showing the order details in the backend. It displays the the payment method-specific data.
    All plugins must reimplement this method.
    Return:
    Null when for payment methods that were not selected, text (HTML) otherwise
    Parameters:
    1. (integer) The order ID
    2. (integer) Payment method used for this order
  • plgVmOnCancelPayment() - This event is fired each time the status of an order is changed to Cancelled. It can be used to refund payments, void authorization etc.
    When reimplementing this methis, the body must start with this code:
    $_paymethodID = $this->getPaymentMethodForOrder($_orderID);
    if (!$this->selectedThisMethod($this->_pelement, $_paymethodID)) {
        return;
    }

    Parameters:
    (integer The order ID
    (char) Previous order status
    (char) New order status
  • plgVmOnShipOrderPayment() - This event is fired when the status of an order is changed to Shipped. It can be used to confirm or capture payments
    When reimplementing this methis, the body must start with this code:
    $_paymethodID = $this->getPaymentMethodForOrder($_orderID);
    if (!$this->selectedThisMethod($this->_pelement, $_paymethodID)) {
        return;
    }

    Return:
    True on success, False on failure, Null if this plugin was not activated
    Parameters:
    1. (integer) Order ID
  • plgVmOnPaymentNotification() - This event is fired after receiving a asynchronous payment Notification. It can be used to store the payment specific data.
    Parameters:
    1. (integer ) pelement
  • plgVmOnPaymentResponseReceived() - This event is fired after the asynchronous payment response has been received
    Parameters:
    1. (integer ) pelement

Other helper functions inherited from the base class:

  • _ createTable() - This method is used to create and maintain the plugin specific database table(s).
    It must be reimplemented by all plugins.
    Example:
    $_scheme = DbScheme::get_instance();
    $_scheme->create_scheme('#__vm_order_payment_'.$this->_pelement);
    $_schemeCols = array(
         'id' => array (
                 'type' => 'int'
                ,'length' => 11
                ,'auto_inc' => true
                ,'null' => false
        )
        ,'order_id' => array (
                 'type' => 'int'
                ,'length' => 11
                ,'null' => false
        )
        ,'payment_method_id' => array (
                 'type' => 'text'
                ,'null' => false
        )
    );
    $_schemeIdx = array(
         'idx_order_payment' => array(
                 'columns' => array ('order_id')
                ,'primary' => false
                ,'unique' => false
                ,'type' => null
        )
    );
    $_scheme->define_scheme($_schemeCols);
    $_scheme->define_index($_schemeIdx);
    if (!$_scheme->scheme()) {
        JError::raiseWarning(500, $_scheme->get_db_error());
    }
    $_scheme->reset();
