Billon jQuery is a plugin for Billon simple payment system using library jQuery and PHP.
Starting payment using Billon jQuery is a simple and intuitive process, in which specifying a small number of parameters relating to the payment and complete the (optional) data seller/receiving payment for an invoice for the customer is sufficient.
How to use?
Using jQuery Billon is very simple. It is enough to download appropriate files, place them on a server, and then insert inside <head> tag (or before closing tag </body>) of your page:
Billon jQuery does not require earlier importing any libraries. It is enough to add the code of import in the page, and the script will takes care of loading compressed sub-libaries needed to its work (including mere jQuery!) by itself. The script will not import the libraries if they are already included in the page, so it will remain light up to the nines!
Next, a script that binds HTML elements with functionalities of API of Billon payments should be written, eg.:
If jQuery library is set in mode ‘noConflict’, global shortcut ‘$’ is not available. The code should be placed inside anonymous function where shortcut ‘$’ is defined as alias ‘jQuery’, eg.:
Later, classes of the elements when clicking which the payments are to be made can be set or new elements can be inserted, eg.:
|paymentType||oneclick, cart, donate, like, love, pingpay||a type of the payment:|
|wuiAddress||eg. http://126.96.36.199:28091||an address of the Corporate Node|
|wallet||eg. shop||a username in the Corporate Node|
|billonAgent||eg. http://sklep3.billon.net.pl/billonDialog_dev/php/billonAgent.php||an address of proxy PHP script, file ‘billonAgent.php’ in directory ‘php’ be default|
|language||pl, en||the language in which payment will be processed|
|title||eg. Order pizza||custom title of the dialog|
|titleProductName||true, false||whether the name of a product is to displayed in brackets before amount|
|comment||false, true||whether user is able to append an additional comment|
|seller||eg. seller17||a name of .json file that defines seller data without extension from directory ‘config’ (‘seller’ by default)|
|currency||eg. £||displayed currency, which can be HTML element, eg. image|
|realCurrency||eg. GBP||ISO 4217 code of actual currency of payment, PLN by default|
All parameters can be defined globally, eg.:
Globally defined parameters refer to all elements on the page in which function ‘billon’ have been used, but locally defined parameters causes overwriting this parameters for given call. It is recommended to define parameters globally initially, and define them locally for individual, different form each other types of payments, eg. for a payment in Polish:
A description of the products (a supplement of invoice data)
You do not need to define a price of a product, its name and detailed description of the transaction for simple payments such as the donation, ‘I like it!’ or ‘I love it’. However, such a description is required for the payment for the products. Setting invoice data comprises the identification data of Seller and a specification of the products in Billon jQuery. The description of the products must be defined in attribute ‘data-billon-product’ of an element that triggers the payment, eg. of a button ‘Buy Now!’. The value filled in this attribute relates to the file in folder ‘products’. A payment will be made for product defined in ‘/products/1.json’ for example below:
<div class="billonBuyNow" data-billon-product="1">Buy Now!</div>
<div class="billonCart" data-billon-product="[1, 2]">Pay Cart</div>
Sample JSON document describing seller and products have been added to files of Billon jQuery in the directories ‘config’ and ‘products’.
A title of the donation can be placed in attribute ‘data-billon-product’ in the case of the donations, eg.:
<div class="billonDonate" data-billon-product="support for project">Donation</div>
