3. The response is a model that can fill differently depending on whether you have While Label or not. In the first case, only two fields are returned: txn_id is a Plisio’s intertnal ID and invoice_url is an invoice URL. And in the second case, extra fields are added to them:

Callback data PHP verification example:

function verifyCallbackData () {
  if (!isset($_POST['verify_hash'])) {
    return false;
  $post = $_POST;
  $verifyHash = $post['verify_hash'];
  $postString = serialize($post);
  $checkKey = hash_hmac('sha1', $postString, 'SECRET_KEY');
  if ($checkKey != $verifyHash) {
    return false;
  return true;

Example getting callback data in Node:

Works if the url is callback_url, success_callback_url , fail_callback_url has the value json=true. Example: https://Localhost.loc/success?json=true .

const http = require("http");
const crypto = require('crypto');
const secretKey = 'SECRET_KEY';

const host = '';
const port = 8000;

const vallidateRequest = function (data) {
  if (typeof data === 'object' && data.verify_hash && secretKey) {    
    const ordered = {};
    delete ordered.verify_hash;    
    const string = JSON.stringify(ordered);
    const hmac = crypto.createHmac('sha1', secretKey);
    const hash = hmac.digest('hex');
    return hash === data.verify_hash;
  return false;

const requestListener = function (req, res) {
  let chunks = '';
  req.on('data', chunk => chunks += chunk);
  req.on('end', () => {
    let data;
    try {
      data = JSON.parse(chunks);
      res.setHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");
    } catch (e){
      // console.error(e);
      data = false;

    if (data && vallidateRequest(data)) {
      res.end('This is a correct JSON callback');
    } else {
      res.end('Incorrect data 1');

const server = http.createServer(requestListener);
server.listen(port, host, () => {
  console.log(`Server is running on http://${host}:${port}`);
