|ePay hosted payment page|
With the ePay secure hosted payment page, the merchant’s customer selects a purchase on the merchant’s site. The details of the order are posted to a customised secure form hosted on the ePay server. The customer provides their credit card and possibly other details. After they have posted the transaction to the payment gateway, they are returned to a secure page on the ePay server. Clicking a link on that page will return them to the merchant’s web site. The link can contain variables that can be passed through a URL.
This option is suitable when:
- programming skills are not available
- transaction volume does not justify a programmed interface
- the web site does not have the ability to host a secure SSL page
- the merchant sells only a small number of items
- there is no need to pass the transaction response back to a program or database on the merchant’s web site
To use ePay's Hosted Payment page, you need:
An Internet Merchant Account from any of the participating banks. Participating banks are: Commonwealth, Westpac, St George, Challenge, ANZ, Bank of Melbourne, NAB, Advance, BankSA, and Bankwest. The bank will charge a negotiated % transaction fee on each transaction, and may charge establishment and monthly service fees.
A web site hosted on virtually any web server with an Internet connection. The Payment Page does not require the installation of its own software and there is no need for SSL.
A shopping cart or other means for customers to select products and record their order. ePay allows details of the order and customer to be posted with the transaction and recorded on the ePay backend system. This means that a database on the merchant’s web site it not necessary.
Skills to integrate the payment page into the web site. Instructions are provided and the work requires a little knowledge of web development but does not require significant technical expertise. As an optional additional service, Multibase can do the work for you.
