Orange is my favorite color

Payment processing is a lot of boilerplate code that isn’t much fun to write. More importantly, when you make a mistake, it usually means a lost sale or, worse, a double charge you have to track down and refund.

CFPAYMENT makes payment processing easy. It’s a ColdFusion library modeled after Ruby’s ActiveMerchant that normalizes various payment gateways to give developers a single interface to process credit card and ACH transactions. After years of production use and tens of millions of dollars processed, I’m proud to announce a 1.0 release is now available at

There’s a lot of hard work from many different folks that have made this a success. If you’re interested in learning more, download the file and check out docs/cfpayment.pdf or hit up the Google group at

    CFPAYMENT is a fantastic project and I have really enjoyed using it. For anyone thinking about taking payments using ColdFusion, I would really encourage you to check it out.

    It simplifies interactions with several payment gateways and makes it easy to switch from one to another (should the need arise).
