Alternative Payment Method Accounts

How Tos (2)

NOTE: Customers require an IRP Licence to use the Alternative Payment Methods functionality.

For an overview of other features that require a licence, see IRP Licences.

You can find this section under Payment Processing > Alternative Payment Method Accounts in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

For each APM to be enabled in your IRP, you will need to add an account on this page. Here is where you add the WorldPay XML Password, Installation Id and MAC Secret details. This is also where you configure the Currency - Billing Countries combinations for an account.

Information Needed from WorldPay

To enable APMs through WorldPay, you need the following information from WorldPay (see also the screen capture below):

  • Merchant Code with desired APMs enabled
  • Unique Installation Id for their Integration between IRP and WorldPay
  • XML Password for communication between IRP and WorldPay
  • MAC (Message Authentication Certificate) Secret for verifying messages from WorldPay
  • Order Notifications configured for automatic updates of Pending APMs:
    • Protocol: HTTP
    • Active: Yes
    • Content: XML
    • Address: https://www.domainname.com/Secure/AlternativePaymentMethodsOrderNotificationsWorldPay.aspx
      Note there are different URLs for training and production - you should set both to be the same unless you are testing sandbox on a test site and production on your live site.
    • Method: POST
    • Client Certificate: No
    • Send Indempotency Key: No
Order Notification Configuration on WorldPay

AlternativePaymentMethodAccounts.aspx page

The AlternativePaymentMethodAccounts.aspx page appears as follows:

APM Accounts Page

You can see the following details in the main grid:

  • ID: This is the unique IRP identifier for this Alternative Payment Method Account, added automatically by the IRP.
  • Active: Only Active Accounts will be available on the front-end checkout process if the Billing Country - Currency criteria have been met.
  • Provider: This is the Provider for this Alternative Payment Method. Currently the IRP only supports WorldPay (and soon RealEx) Payments for Alternative Payment Methods.
  • Payment Method: This is the Payment Method for this Alternative Payment Method Account. This will determine what Method Code is sent in the XML communication with the Provider API.
  • Currency ISO: This is the Currency criteria for this Alternative Payment Method Account. Alternative Payment Method Accounts are unique for Billing Country - Currency combination. Unless these two criteria are met in the checkout process, the Account will not appear to the Customer.
  • Billing Countries: These are the Billing Countries this Alternative Payment Method Account is specifically enabled in. If no Billing Countries have been enabled against an Account, it will be available to all Countries providing the Customer's Currency matches the Currency of the Account. If Billing Countries have been enabled against an Account, it will only be available in those Countries providing the Customer's Currency matches the Currency of the Account.
  • Merchant Identifier: This is the required Merchant Code to be used in communication with the Alternative Payment Method Providers API.
  • Sandbox Mode: Determines whether Transactions placed using this Alternative Payment Method Account use the Sandbox or Production environment of their Provider's API. Note that Alternative Payment Method Accounts in Sandbox mode should be kept InActive to prevent them from appearing on the website front-end.
  • Test: Click this button and the AlternativePaymentMethodTestTransaction.aspx pop-up window will appear. Using this window you can submit a test transaction using a test amount of the APM currency and a billing country. For more details, see How to Test an Alternative Payment Method (APM) Account.
  • Edit: Click this button to go to the AlternativePaymentMethodAccountEdit.aspx page. From here you can edit all the details of an existing APM Account. For more details, see How to Add or Edit an Alternative Payment Method (APM) Account.

At the top of the page you can use the following buttons:

  • Transactions: Click this button to go to the AlternativePaymentMethodTransactions.aspx page. Here you can see lists of all the APM transactions in the system and you can drill down to examine each transaction in greater detail on the AlternativePaymentMethodTransactionDetails.aspx page where you can see the response content and other information. For more details, see the How to View Alternative Payment Method (APM) Transaction Details help topic.
  • Payment Methods: Click this button to go to the AlternativePaymentMethods.aspx page. You will need to add each APM that you want to implement on your IRP on this page. For more details see the Alternative Payment Methods help topic.
  • Add New Account: Click this button to go to the AlternativePaymentMethodAccountEdit.aspx page. From here you can add all the account details for a new APM. For more details, see How to Add or Edit an Alternative Payment Method (APM) Account.
