CertoConnect strives to work as much in the background as possible and most preferably not be seen at all at any point in the actual payment process.
Now it can work even more in the background with a new type of integration method we call an iFrame integration.
The main difference with an iFrame integration from the “regular” type of integration is that instead of redirecting the customer to CertoConnect`s checkout page, the payment process can take place in the iFrame, and create the comfortable feeling for the customer of never leaving your website.
You can get more detailed information on how to use the iFrame integration here.
The simple payment process is shown in the below step-by-step guide.
The customer goes to the checkout page and clicks on “Checkout”:
After the customer clicks on “Checkout” CertoConnect`s secure payment page will open in the iFrame. Your own website will still be visible under the iFrame:
In this example the customer wants to pay by using a credit card and chooses his card brand. In the example we use a card called “Bogus” (imaginary brand) but would be one of the major card brands.
The customer fills out the form and enter the credit card details as with any payment page:
Next step would be to fill out the shipping address or the customer can use the already entered billing address. This step will be skipped if you have disabled the requirement for a customer to enter a shipping address in your settings.
The customer reviews the entered information:
The final step is when the customer completes the payment.
Depending on the payment result (approved/rejected) the customer will be redirected to either a success URL or fail URL with your own choice of text and the possibility to continue to interact with the customer.
We hope that you will enjoy this new and exciting integration possibility.
Give it a try and don’t be afraid to send us any feedback you might have on iFrame. Good or bad. We can take it
Here we come!
It was about time to knock on the door to some of the bank transfer networks and direct debit solutions we have lined up for integration with CertoConnect.
TrustPay was the first network to be integrated and CertoConnect is now live with it.
TrustPay have a good coverage in the Eastern European region and expanding with more countries and banks shortly. Right now TrustPay cover Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Estonia. It’s no secret that bank transfers and direct debits are the second largest payment method in the world and with very high security benefits for both the merchant and the customer.
We have several partners that are waiting on getting integrated with CertoConnect such as;
- Western Union
Some nice and well deserved summer vacations energized our tech team members and we will take full advantage of that new found energy.
We might just experience another integration marathon :)
Ukash offers secure pre-paid vouchers which can be cashed in at thousands of connected websites and Ukash even have their own iPhone App with multiple features. It`s very convenient. The past few years Ukash have grown into a well-known and well used alternative payment brand among merchants worldwide and a given CertoConnect partner.
While we were on a roll on doing the Ukash integration we threw in another exciting alternative payment brand; Moneybookers.
Talk about an integration marathon.
We are sure that most merchants are familiar with Moneybookers so we will not dig too much into a presentation.
Much more to come though so stay tuned.
We got some useful feedback from some of our clients that are using CertoConnect. Their wish was to have a shorter payment flow for their customers.
It’s not an easy task since the payment flows is basically standard in the business and it’s hard to find new ways to streamline these flows.
We didn’t say impossible.
Our tech team boiled a few pots of coffee and pulled an all nighter.
CertoConnect can now offer a solution where all the steps with reviewing the order and choose payment method have been eliminated for a better overall customer experience.
Merchants can now put a code, available in our API, which will display buttons such as “Pay with PayPal” or “Pay with Google Checkout” on the merchants own website:
The customer clicks on the button for the payment method that he wants to use for payment and instantly gets directed to the payment brands payment page to carry out the actual payment.
Thank God for coffee :)
