Standard Account Integration methods

This also includes the gateway only integration

There are several different ways to integrate your site/shopping cart to the standard account. The way in which information about purchases is passed between your shop and the Gateway Only payment service is called the Integration method.

Below are the different methods available:

Submitting Transactions in the Redirect Model Guide


The Redirect integration method uses HTML messages to pass information between your site and us. It is the simplest and easiest method of integration and will work on just about any platform.

What is the Redirect Model?


Submitting Transactions in the Redirect Model is an online payment system that enables shoppers to make secure payments in many currencies over the Internet. It enables merchants like you to accept automated multi-currency payments.

Our payment processing system works in conjunction with your own shopping system: your website shop has its own order pages, but uses our secure payment pages for the processing of payments. This means you can benefit from the various payment methods that we support, such as:

  • Credit cards - we gather card details in our secure payment pages, there is no need for you to do this,

  • Paypal (express checkout). When PayPal is enabled as a payment method on your account, the PayPal logo is added to payment method selection page - automatically, there is no need for you to do this. When a shopper clicks on the PayPal logo, they will be re-directed to PayPal to process their payment as for any other PayPal payment

  • FuturePay - this is an internet-based equivalent of traditional standing order and direct debit facilities. It enables you to make arrangements for subscription payments or payment by instalments.

All payment processing is handled by our secure server, so you and your shoppers can be confident that their payment details are safe.

Nothing to Install

There is nothing to install with the Redirect Model. All you need is a working Internet connection and your Inst ID.

Quick and Simple, or Complex


If you are familiar with HTML you can choose to set-up a simple integration using examples provided in this guide - and to make use of our standard payment pages - all you need to do is to copy a few lines of HTML and paste them into your website page.

If you have advanced HTML skills you can develop your own fully automated ordering system, complete with customised payment pages.

Note that you can even integrate using a single URL query string.

The choice is yours.

Other Tools we Provide

  • HTML payment responses- every authorisation and capture as well as every other status in the life-cycle of a payment are reported via http messages to your system (and optionally via email). You can use this information to update your in-house systems / generate your own reports.
  • Email receipts- you can choose to receive automatic email receipts notifying you of each payment that is processed. For more information, please refer to the Payments and Orders Guide.

Using Callbacks


You can set-up the Redirect Model integration (RMI) to suit your own requirements by configuring various options. For instance, you can upload your own versions of the payment pages that are displayed to your shoppers, and you can specify that you want to use the Payment Notifications (Callbacks) feature.

When a shopper makes an order at your website and starts to pay, our 'callback' feature enables you to automatically return information from us to your webserver. Many shopping carts make extensive use of this feature, to manage your shopper's orders more effectively.

You can highly customise the Payment Service, including the payment pages, the result pages displayed after a transaction has taken place, and the confirmation emails that you and your shoppers receive.

We provide a Payment Page Editor which enables you to carry out a range of standard customising tasks and is the simplest and fastest way to customise your payment page. You access the Payment Page Editor via Merchant Administration Interface's Installations Page, for further details please refer to Opening the Payment Page Editor.

For a more sophisticated level of customisation you will need to modify the files used to build the Payment Service. To do this you will need to refer to the Advanced Customising Guide and have expertise with HTML and the tools we provide in the Payment Page Editor.

Shopping Cart and/or Bespoke Integration


We have a comprehensive range of technical guides and application 'plug-ins' that are made available to you on application. Including a FREE integration manual and 24/7 tech support.
