This project uses Semantic Versioning for managing backwards-compatibility.

NOTE: Version 0.4.0 is not strictly backwards-compatible with the earlier 0.0.x versions.

NOTE: Due to impending PCI 3.x changes, we will be disabling support for TLS < 1.2 over our API. TLS 1.2 support requires Ruby 2.0.0. As such, while this SDK may function with Ruby 1.9, we no longer support it.


gem 'wepay', '~> 0.4.0'

And include it in your scripts:

require 'wepay'


client_id = 'your_client_id'
client_secret = 'your_client_secret'
use_stage = true

wepay = WePay::Client.new(client_id, client_secret, use_stage)

# Get the OAuth 2.0 authorization URL. Send the user to this URL to authorize
# the application, then they will return to your `redirect_uri` with a code as
# a GET parameter.
redirect_uri = "http://myexamplesite.com/wepay"

# Once you have the OAuth 2.0 code, you can request an access token.
response = wepay.oauth2_token(code, redirect_uri)
access_token = response['access_token']

# Make a call to the `/user` endpoint (which requires no parameters).
response = wepay.call('/user', access_token)

# You may also open a payment account for the user.
response = wepay.call('/account/create', access_token, {
  :name        => "test account",
  :description => "this is only a test"


Firstly, run bundle install to download and install the dependencies.

You can run the tests as follows:

make test

API Reference

The API Reference is generated by a tool called YARD. Once it's installed, you can generate updated documentation by running the following command in the root of the repository.

make docs
