Overview

Back to top

Paymentsense is a financial technology company that operates credit and debit card payment services for small and medium-sized businesses. Since the first mammoth hunt, we humans have done better when we club together. It’s the same with your business and Paymentsense. Unlike the competition, we’re not a bank. What we are is the collective bargaining power of all our wonderful customers, shouting in unison for a better deal. We use that clout to negotiate cheaper rates and pass the savings on to you. And with over 70,000 SMEs (and counting) on board turning over £10 billion a year, we’re just getting started.

This module integrates Magento stores with the Paymentsense payment gateway allowing merchants to accept card payments online. The module enables both customers and merchants to perform payments from respectively the storefront and the admin panel of the Magento store.

The module supports the following payment methods that can be enabled and used in any combination based on the specific merchant requirements:

  • Hosted payment method redirects the customer to enter their card details on a secure payment form hosted by Paymentsense.
  • Direct payment method allows the customer to enter their card details directly in the Magento store.
  • MOTO payment method allows the merchant to enter customer's card details when placing an order from the Magento Admin Panel.

 

Account & Pricing

A Paymentsense account is required before the installation of this module and the merchant gateway credentials should be set in the module configuration page through the Magento Admin Panel. If you don't yet have a Paymentsense account, please Register for a Test Account as the module does not create accounts during the installation. Additional fees apply. To take payments from live cards you will need a live account in order to do this please take a look at our Online payments page.

For test cards please refer to the TestCardDetails.pdf document. There are no fees for using the test account, there is no limit to how long you can use a test account for.

 

How This Module Works

  • The module is built with the aim to integrate its functionality with zero to minimal changes of the look and feel of the Magento shop.
  • At checkout using the Paymentsense Hosted Method customers will see a button that will redirect them to the Paymentsense secure payment page where they can enter their card details. Once the card details are entered customers will be redirected back to the Magento shop and will see the order status.
  • At checkout using the Paymentsense Direct Method (SSL/TLS secure connection is required) customers will have the option to enter their card details directly in the Magento shop. If the card is enrolled in a 3-D secure scheme, a verification dialog from the ACS (Access Control Server) will appear in an iframe as an extra security step before showing the order status.
  • Orders placed by the merchants at the Magento Admin Panel using the Paymentsense MOTO Method work the same way like the Paymentsense Direct Method explained above with the difference that the processing of cards enrolled in a 3-D secure scheme is not supported. Any attempts to process such cards will result in showing the respective message.

 

Module Features

  • Process credit and debit card transactions from the Magento storefront and Admin Panel.
  • Support of the latest PCI DSS version 3.2 introduced by the PCI Security Standards Council to safeguard the transmission and storage of payment card data.
  • AVS protection by checking the billing address of the credit card provided by the customer with the address on file at the credit card issuer.
  • CVV protection reducing the fraud incidences.
  • 3-D Secure-enabled payments supported by the Hosted and Direct payment methods.
  • Ability to configure the sales action to Authorize only or Authorize and Capture.
  • Online refund support.
  • Void/cancel authorizations.

 

Security

The customer data is handled in full compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and PCI DSS* version 3.2. All communication with Paymentsense is done using SSL encryption, and no sensitive customer data is stored on the Magento server. Merchant credentials are stored on the Magento server and saved/retried by using the standard functionalities accessible on the Magento Admin Panel.

Paymentsense Direct and Paymentsense MOTO methods collect the customer card data on a secure SSL/TLS configured Magento server, which is a strict requirement for these payment methods to work. For more information, please see the Secure Checkout section in the readme file.

Paymentsense Hosted method is realized through redirect to a secure page, hosted on a Paymentsense server by using hash digests and individual merchant keys for data validation. The available hashing algorithms are MD5, SHA1, HMACSHA1 and HMACMD5 as per the specific merchant configuration. This approach assures secure communication without the use of tokenisation.
