Chargebee Node.js Client Library

npm npm

This is the node.js library for integrating with Chargebee. Sign up for a Chargebee account here.

Note If you’re using API V1, head to chargebee-v1 branch.

Requirements

Node 0.6 or higher.

Installation

Install the latest version of the library with:

npm install chargebee
# or
yarn add chargebee
# or
pnpm install chargebee

Usage

The package needs to be configured with your site's API key, which is available under Configure Chargebee Section. Refer here for more details.

The full documentation can be found on the Chargebee API Docs: https://apidocs.chargebee.com/docs/api?lang=node

const chargebee = require('chargebee');

chargebee.configure({
  site: '<YOUR_SITE_NAME>',
  api_key: '<YOUR_API_KEY>',
});

Or using ES modules,

import chargebee from 'chargebee';

chargebee.configure({
  site: '<YOUR_SITE_NAME>',
  api_key: '<YOUR_API_KEY>',
});

Using Async / Await

try {
  const result = await chargebee.customer
    .create({
      email: 'john@test.com',
      // other params
    })
    .request();
    // access customer as result.customer;
} catch (err) {
  // handle error
}

Using Promises

chargebee.customer
  .create({
    email: 'john@test.com',
    // other params
  })
  .request()
  .then((result) => {
    // handle result
    // access customer as result.customer;
  })
  .catch((err) => {
    // handle error
  });

Using callbacks

chargebee.customer
  .create({
    email: 'john@test.com',
    // other params
  })
  .request(function (error, result) {
    if (error) {
      // handle error
    } else {
      // handle result
     // access customer as result.customer;
    }
  });

Usage with TypeScript

You can import the types as shown below.

import chargebee, { Customer } from 'chargebee';

chargebee.configure({
  site: '<YOUR_SITE_NAME>',
  api_key: '<YOUR_API_KEY>',
});

const createCustomer = async () => {
  const inputParams: Customer.CreateInputParam = {
    email: 'john@test.com',
    first_name: 'John',
    last_name: 'Doe',
  };

  const { customer } = await chargebee.customer.create(inputParams).request();
  console.log(customer);
};

createCustomer();

Using filters in the List API

For pagination: offset is the parameter that is being used. The value used for this parameter must be the value returned for next_offset parameter in the previous API call.

const fetchCustomers = async (offset) => {
    const result = await chargebee.customer.list({
      limit: 2,
      offset: offset,
      first_name: { is: 'John' },
    }).request();

    return {
      customers: result.list.map((obj) => obj.customer),
      next_offset: result.next_offset,
    };
  };

  const getCustomers = async () => {
    const { customers, next_offset } = await fetchCustomers();
    console.log('Offset:', next_offset); // Print the offset value

    // Fetching next set of customers
    await fetchCustomers(next_offset);
  };

  getCustomers().catch((err) => {
    console.log(err);
  });

Using custom headers and custom fields:

const result = await chargebee.customer
.create({ email: 'john@test.com', cf_host_url: 'http://xyz.com' }) //Add custom field in payload
.headers({
  'chargebee-event-email': 'all-disabled', // To disable webhooks
  'chargebee-request-origin-ip': '192.168.1.2',
})
.setIdempotencyKey("safeKey")
.request();

const customer = result.customer;
console.log(customer.cf_host_url);

Creating an idempotent request

Idempotency keys are passed along with request headers to allow a safe retry of POST requests.

const result = await chargebee.customer
    .create({ email: 'john@test.com' })
    .setIdempotencyKey("safeKey")
    .request();
const customer = result.customer;
const headers = result.headers;
const isIdempotencyReplayed = result.isIdempotencyReplayed;

OR

chargebee.customer.create({ email: 'john@test.com', cf_host_url: 'http://xyz.com' })
.setIdempotencyKey("safeKey")
.request(function(error,result) {
  if(error){
    //handle error
  }else{
    const customer = result.customer;
    const headers = result.headers;
    const isIdempotencyReplayed = result.isIdempotencyReplayed;
  }
});

Passing API Keys at request level

const newCust = await chargebee.customer.create({
  email: 'john@test.com',
  first_name: 'John',
  last_name: 'Doe'
}).request({
  site: '<YOUR_SITE_NAME>',
  api_key: '<YOUR_API_KEY>',
});

Processing Webhooks - API Version Check

An attribute, api_version, is added to the Event resource, which indicates the API version based on which the event content is structured. In your webhook servers, ensure this _api_version* is the same as the API version used by your webhook server's client library.
