This chapter describes the use of payment gateways, i.e. E-commerce application services authorizing payments that the customers make when purchasing products and services offered in your on-line store. A payment gateway facilitates the transfer of information between your website and the transaction processor or acquiring bank. Currently, the following payment gateways are directly supported in Kentico CMS:
Authorize.NET - the customer pays using their card.
PayPal - the customer pays using their card or PayPal account.
Please note that you are not limited to the use of those two gateways as the CMS system allows you to integrate your custom payment gateways using your code.
The customer can also pay using their customer credit. The credit must be entered in the customer details by the store owner. This option is useful e.g. for customer loyalty programs.
The way how payment results are stored in the system and how they can be customized is tackled in the chapter, too.
