Direct Post Integration
Online business can be risky; therefore the prime objective of the merchant is to provide their customers the most secure method of payment. The most secure way to allow clients to make payments for their purchase online is though credit card processing mechanisms. Merchants need a special merchant account to be able to process clients’ credit card payment.
Online businesses being classified as high risk businesses (due to the risk involved and the possibility of higher chargeback and refunds) don’t get merchant accounts easily. For the benefit of such merchants, we at Advanced Merchant Systems provide assistance to acquire the best merchant account for your needs. Being out there in the industry providing merchant account services to online businesses, we are dedicated to providing you with secure payment ways that will offer your clients the most possible secure way to process their payments.
Direct Post Integration or Secure Processing Form Integration
Direct Post Integration can be classified as one such secure way that we offer to our customer for that added safety in their debit card and credit card processing.
As an online business when you use the Advanced Merchant Systems’ payment gateway, you are offered with a lucrative option of integrating your business website and applications using either of the two options – the Direct Post Integration or Secure Processing Form Integration. Being our customer you have the choice of choosing from the two methods that you would want to use to allow your program to communicate with our program.
Direct Post Integration method of payment gateway allows the merchant or business to main its customers’ checkout experience without any real need of building the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) infrastructure. This means that the Direct Post Integration method of payment gateway integration allows you to keep the responsibility of gathering the payment information for us.
So, let’s see how Direct Post integration works for merchants at Advanced Merchant Systems:
When a customer comes online with an intention to purchase something from your store, they will either make a purchase right away or they will save it to the shopping cart showing interest to purchase later. When the customer views their shopping cart on your stores server and clicks on the checkout button, we allow your payment page to gather the credit card information while the customer is still on the server.
Now, as and when the customers clicks the submit order button, the customer’s card information straight away posts onto the Advanced Merchant Systems payment gateway. This means that the customers’ sensitive and confidential card info never comes onto your server.
Here, we help you by sending you the payment information – to process or deny the transaction, and then release a quick XML-based response message to confirm to you about the transaction. Now, your customer can see the result of the transaction displayed on their screen.
On the other hand, Secure Processing Form Integration method of payment gateway allows the merchant to shift their responsibility of gathering the credit card payment information from them to Advanced Merchant Systems. When the merchant applies for secure processing form we do all the work of collecting payment information yet keeping the card user’s data safe and secure.
Being different in their own ways, the two methods, Direct Post integration and Secure Processing Form Integration, need their own an Application Programming Interface (API) – a common language program that allows two programs to communicate easily. And to facilitate our merchants, we at Advanced Merchant Systems have two API’s for the two methods.
