Build Status

The quickpay-ruby-client gem is a official client for QuickPay API. The Quickpay API enables you to accept payments in a secure and reliable manner.

This gem currently support QuickPay v10 api.


Add to your Gemfile

gem "quickpay-ruby-client"

or install from Rubygems:

$ gem install quickpay-ruby-client

It is currently tested with Ruby ( >= 2.1.x)

  • MRI
  • Rubinius (2.0)


Before doing anything you should register yourself with QuickPay and get access credentials. If you haven't please click here to apply.

Create a new API client

First you should create a client instance that is anonymous or authorized with your API key or login credentials provided by QuickPay.

To initialise an anonymous client:

require "quickpay/api/client"
client = QuickPay::API::Client.new

To initialise a client with QuickPay API Key:

require "quickpay/api/client"
client = QuickPay::API::Client.new(password: ENV["QUICKPAY_API_KEY"])

Or you can provide login credentials like:

require "quickpay/api/client"
client = QuickPay::API::Client.new(username: ENV["QUICKPAY_LOGIN"], password: ENV["QUICKPAY_PASSWORD"])

You can also set some connection specific options (default values shown):

client = Quickpay::API::Client.new(
  options: {
    read_timeout: 60,
    write_timeout: 60,
    connect_timeout: 60,
    json_opts: { symbolize_names: true }

Sending request

You can afterwards call any method described in QuickPay API with corresponding http method and endpoint. These methods are supported currently: get, post, put, patch, delete and head.

client.get("/activity").each do |activity|
  puts activity["id"]

Beyond the endpoint, the client accepts the following options (default values shown):

  • body: ""
  • headers: {}
  • query: {}
  • raw: false
  • json_opts: nil
response = client.post(
  body: { amount: 100 }.to_json,
  headers: { "Content-Type" => "application/json" },
  query: { "synchronized" => "" },
  raw: false,
  json_opts: { symbolize_names: true }

If you want raw http response, headers Please add :raw => true parameter:

status, body, headers = client.get("/activity", raw: true)

if status == 200
  JSON.parse(body).each do |activity|
    puts activity["id"]
  # do something else

Handling API exceptions

By default (get|post|patch|put|delete) will return JSON parsed body on success (i.e. 2xx response code) otherwise it will raise appropriate error. Your code should handle the errors appropriately. Following error codes are supported currently:

Response status Error
400 QuickPay::API::BadRequest
401 QuickPay::API::Unauthorized
402 QuickPay::API::PaymentRequired
403 QuickPay::API::Forbidden
404 QuickPay::API::NotFound
405 QuickPay::API::MethodNotAllowed
406 QuickPay::API::NotAcceptable
409 QuickPay::API::Conflict
500 QuickPay::API::ServerError
502 QuickPay::API::BadGateway
503 QuickPay::API::ServiceUnavailable
504 QuickPay::API::GatewayTimeout

All exceptions inherits QuickPay::API::Error, so you can listen for any api error like:

  client.post("/payments", body: { currency: "DKK", order_id: "1212" })
rescue QuickPay::API::Error => e
  puts e.body
