Integrating a real time payment gateway using the iNETstore Gateway Server
Topic: Payment gateway
Product: iNETstore 2002
This article explains how to integrate a real time payment gateway into your store.
A real time payment gateway enables you to process credit card payments
automatically at the time the transaction takes place on your web site. The
gateway will establish a connection to the banking network and clear the funds
if available. The customer and merchant are automatically advised whether the
transaction was successful.
Payment gateways are third party companies that specialise in the clearing of
electronic payments online. As a merchant you will require an account with a
payment gateway in addition to your merchant account with your bank (an
exception to this rule is the payment gateway WorldPay where you require a
standard bank account only).
iNETstore makes implementing a real time payment gateway as simple as
possible. All of the software and integration work that each payment gateway
requires has already been done by iNETstore. iNETstore also maintains the 128bit
SSL certificate and a scalable robust server network. All that you have to do is
obtain an account with a payment gateway and enter the appropriate values into
the iNETstore Payment Gateway Server (http://www.inetstore.com/gateway).

your test transactions and use a real credit card number to order it.
