Payment gateways and payment processors 

As an alternative to using the secure server to collect credit card details, you can use a third party payment processor.

Main Content

With the exception of PayPal Standard, PayPal Express checkout, Paymate, Moneybookers and Nochex you need to upgrade to Premium to use these payment processors.


Using a payment processors

Not all the features of the cart work with some payment processors. Some do not post back what happens when the customer's card is authorized and so the cart doesn't know if there really is a sale. We are talking about all the functionality you would normally associate with a Thank you page: mTracker, remote calls, emails notifications and the download system.

Custom gateway method

There is also a system for manually configuring a link to a payment processor that includes hosted secure pages as part of their service; we call it the the custom gateway method.

Nearly all payment gateways can be setup to collect credit card data by posting to them a form created of hidden fields. In this case the secure pages are hosted on their server and they simply require details about the order. The payment gateway may or may not return information to the cart as to whether the the customer's card was accepted.
