Accepting online payments with Verifone can be done through multiple integration methods. This page describes what you need to know in order to decide on which integration method is best for you and where to find the essential information like URLs and how to authenticate with our API.
To process transactions through the sandbox and production environments you will be using different API keys. One key is used for sandbox and one is used for production. Make sure your API key and secret are never stored on the client side, they are only intended for server to server API calls. Continue reading about API authentication.
The URL you use determines if you are making calls into the sandbox or production environments. Different URLs, API keys and other variables need to be used in sandbox and production. When setting up your environments make sure the following variables are configurable:
|API key||Provided by a Verifone employee during onboarding|
|API secret||Provided by a Verifone employee during onboarding|
|Payment Provider Contracts||Administration > Payment Provider Contracts > [Contract] > Payment Provider Contract ID value|
|3DS Contract||Provided by a Verifone employee during onboarding|
|Entity ID||Administration > Organizations > [Organization] > Organisation ID value|
Sandbox and production URLs
Online payments can be processed by using our Checkout solution as a Hosted Payments Page (HPP) or an Iframe. Payment modifications can be done directly via the Portal, or by using Server-to-Server API calls. A comparison of the different integration methods can be found here:
