linking to merchant account

Hi All

How do I go about linking the website to a merchant account?

The site that is going to be designed will be linked to Barlcays merchant terminal.

Your choices are PayPal Payments Pro or Authorize.NET.

From the FAQ:

  I want to use PayPal to process payments. Is PayPal Payments Pro required?

Yes. Some of PowerStore's features (including inventory control) require local checkout to function. Due to the fact that local checkout is utilized PowerStore has been configured to use PayPal Payments Pro or Authorize.NET. The usage of any other PayPal options may lead to the loss of features.

What type of checkout does PowerStore utilize?

PowerStore utilizes local checkout which allows the entire payment process for your customers to occur directly on your website rather than having the customer directed to the payment gateway to complete their payment (remote checkout). WebAssist feels that local checkout provides the most professional and seamless user experience for customers therefore have implemented this type of checkout within PowerStore.

So there is no way of using a bank merchant account?

They would need a gateway of some sort to link any e-commerce site with their bank. A merchant account is only one part of the equation.

That allows them to accept credit cards but you have to transmit the transaction information through the Internet to the the issuer of the merchant account. You have to pay a gateway service for this. You should be able to use their account through PayPal Pro. Check with PayPal under the "already have a merchant account" section.

what about ecart?

If you have the ecart extension, you could setup a third party gateway? couldn't you?

Authorize.net not only allows, but requires working with a bank merchant account.
