Paddle Classic (Deprecated) Integration Guide

Paddle is a popular platform for selling software and other digital goods. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you integrate Paddle with Mixpost Enterprise and get started with processing payments.

1. Create an account

  • Production: If you haven’t already, visit Paddle's website and sign up for an account.
  • Sandbox (only for testing): If you haven’t already, visit Paddle's sandbox website and sign up for an account.

We recommend to use a Sandbox account first and testing the integration. If everything is fine, you can switch to a production Paddle account.

2. Configure webhooks

2.1 Webhook URL

From Paddle's dashboard, go to Developers section and click on Events. Scroll down to the URLs for receiving webhooks section and add the following redirect URI:<MIXPOST_CORE_PATH>/payment-webhook

Substitute <MIXPOST_CORE_PATH> with your specified MIXPOST_CORE_PATH. If you have not altered the MIXPOST_CORE_PATH environment variable, use the default value: mixpost.

2.2 Events

Scroll down to the event's configuration and select Webhook for the following events:

  • Subscription Created
  • Subscription Updated
  • Subscription Cancelled
  • Subscription Payment Success
  • Subscription Payment Failed

Save changes.
