Sage Pay Direct Configuration
Follow four simple steps to configure Sage Pay Direct
Bluepark's ecommerce software packages support the acclaimed Sage Pay Direct payment processor for receiving payments online. Simply follow these four simple steps to begin using this solution.
Access your secure Administration Console by entering your Username and Password. Once you have gained access, select Configuraton from the Site menu.
On the Payment tab, select Sage Pay Direct from the Primary Payment Processor field. Once this is selected, click the Save button (the floppy disk icon) at the top-right of the page. The Sage Pay Direct tab will then appear directly to the right of the Payment tab.
On the Sage Pay Direct tab, select the required Mode that will be used for sending transactions to Sage Pay. Initially, you will need to use Test mode before Sage Pay approves your account to go Live. You will need to enter your Vendor Name in the field provided, enabling Sage Pay to correctly identify your account.
The Currency can be set to any ISO 4217 currency code, and defaults to GBP. The Description field may contain any text you would like to use to identify your transactions, and is only used for reference purposes.
The Transaction Type defines the way in which you wish to process your customer's credit card details. A Standard payment means that funds will be taken immediately from your customer's credit card. A Deferred payment means that the full amount may be taken at a later date, such as when goods are being despatched. An Authenticated payment is one which can be Authorised at a later date, either for the full amount or with multiple authorisations. The complete list of options is as follows:
- Standard Payment
- Deferred if Can't Ship
- Authenticated if Can't Ship
At the bottom of the Sage Pay Direct tab, the IP Address and Subnet Mask of the server will be listed. These are used by Sage Pay to ensure that only you are able to process transactions via your Sage Pay account. You will need to access My Sage Pay on Sage Pay's site to enter this required information. Please note that Test and Live modes use different My Sage Pay sites, meaning both must be configured separately:
You should now be ready to begin processing payments using Sage Pay Direct.
