My Experience

Having been a software developer and e-commerce consultant in my previous company, I have always wanted to integrate Magento with iPay88 which is Malaysia’ leading online payment gateway provider. The integration work was not as straightforward like I had done in my ex-company.

I went through the forums and wiki on creating an online payment module for Magento for some quite some time. After more than 9 months since the launch of Magento 1.0, I was wondering why there was not a single software developer from Malaysia creating this payment module for Magento. The thought of taking this challenge to be the first in Malaysia & Singapore (perhaps South East Asia) to integrate a payment gateway for Magento was a good idea after all.

Understanding the underlying codes of Magento proved to be somewhat intimidating at times. The online documentation to create a new payment module contributed by developers was incomplete and there were many missing puzzles. Most developers had to study the codes in Magento to figure the files to be created as well as the coding convention.

Nevertheless, the process of understanding the inner workings of Magento was crucial in ensuring this payment module is without any bug (God help me!) which would probably cause merchants to lose money! We did thorough Alpha testing of the integration to ensure bugs and errors will not occur during any transaction using the module.

Despite the complexity of this project, the coding convention by Magento and the Zend framework helped in reducing bugs during the software development process. Thank God I stopped developing in old, dinasour, classical ASP!

As I turned 27 early this month, we completed development of this iPay88 payment module of Magento and the integration was approved by the Magento Team within a day.

A close friend said this is the best birthday present for myself. Indeed she was correct and still is. I want to say a big thank you to my partner and friends who are “part” of this project.

  1. It is good news for Malaysian companies. I believe I was the first to download the iPay88 module, it was beta then, is it stable now? However, I haven’t found the time to look into it yet. I will start as soon as I finish my own module in the next couple of weeks. I’m thinking of integrating iPay88 after I decided on where to host my site. Any recommendation on a good host in Malaysia?

  2. Hi Kiat. Thank for dropping by my blog. I guess you were the first to download the extension. How did you find out this post anyway?

    Athough in Beta, it is relatively stable. I have also replied to your review at MagentoConnect where the extension requires Magento version 1.2.1. We will switch it to “stable” when we have at least 5 live stores running using this extension.

    You can try Server Freak or IpServerOne. It works well on their shared hosting.

  3. I subscribe your blog in Google Reader since a long while now. I will check out Server Freak. I’m looking forward to running iPay88 in my store soon.

  4. Do support us by mentioning you are recommended/referred by “Mafinsoft Solutions” to iPay88. I can also help you with the registration. Thanks kiat.

  19. hi malcolm,

    I installed iPay88 payment module on magento and it’s working. Thanks for this!

    My question is, i set my base currency to MYR with allowed currencies of USD. If I change to USD when adding products and then checkout, the amount is given in US Dollars. This works fine with Paypal but will it work with Ipay88 MYR gateway.


  20. Hi YC.

    This Magento extension is designed for iPay88 MYR gateway. Your base currency and amount will be submitted to the gateway regardless of the selected currency.

    If your base currency is MYR, then there will be no problem using this with iPay88 MYR gateway.

    Did I answer your question?

  21. Yes indeed. Thanks again for the wonderful extension.

  22. Hi Malcolm,

    Can your payment gateway be used for a Singapore based company?

    Hi Kent. A Singapore based company cannot use this iPay88 MYR payment gateway. A Singapore based company can use iPay88’s multi-currency payment gateway.
