We can provide as much or as little of your payments journey as you like and if you choose us to provide your full payments service we'd be the only payment partner you would need.
The Elavon Payment Gateway (EPG) enables you to take payments online, it is the online equivalent of a card terminal in a shop. EPG is a secure portal linked to the payment page on your website where your customers can enter their card details which can then be authorised or declined.
Step 1 – Your customer enters their card details on your own payment page, all of which connect into Elavon Payment Gateway.
Step 2 – Once the customer has entered their card details and has decided to pay, our gateway encrypts the information and sends it to the bank for authorisation.
Step 3 – the bank checks the transaction information and sends a response back to our gateway which then shows the customer whether their transaction has been authorised or declined.
You can choose the following ways to integrate Elavon Payment Gateway into your website for online payments:
Shopping Cart or Plugin
Yes – I need a shopping cart
You can select a shopping cart or plugin through the developer hub which allows you or your web developer to choose a preferred shopping cart or plugin from our list to manage the hosting, securing, and running of your business.
No – I already have a shopping cart or I don’t require one
If you already have an existing shopping cart or do not require a shopping cart, you and/or your web developer can easily access the sample code from the developer hub to get started integrating into EPG.
Hosted Payment Page (HPP)
Application Programming interfaces (API)
If your business accepts card payments over the telephone or is in a sales/call centre environment, you can process card transactions simply and securely through our browser based Virtual Terminal or through our MOTO HPP. This is available in real-time and allows your business to accept Mail order/telephone order (MOTO) transactions and process payments without the cardholder and their card being present in your place of business.
