Choosing your Payment Gateway

Implementing a Payment Gateway into your accessplanit platform allows you to take payment online via your Shopping Basket or Checkout.

Terminology

There are several different terms associated with payment gateways which you may have not come across before. The table below aims to make sense of these enabling you to make an informed decision.  

Remote 

Although this option does take longer to integrate, it provides you with a tidier payment gateway which is fully integrated within the accessplanit interface. 

Redirect 

This option offers quicker implementation timescales and redirects users to a secure site to process payment therefore directing them away from your accessplanit page. With most redirect options you do have the option to edit the payment pages through your gateway. If it is necessary for you to be PCI DSS compliant you will need to select this option.  

3D Secure 

3D Secure (also known as “Verified by Visa” or “MasterCard SecureCode”) requires users to provide a secret password before the transaction is processed. Please note that this often requires redirection to a different page and so can make a ‘remote’ payment gateway appear as a ‘redirect’.

Implementation

Implementation of your new payment gateway does vary depending on the option you choose however all follow a similar format. Your chosen provider will give you one or more account IDs which we then integrate within your accessplanit system. Please do note that some providers can take several weeks to generate these IDs and may need to contact us during the process for security reasons
