FAQ - Technical
How long does the credit card authorization process take?
Whether the transaction is approved or declined it usually takes several seconds from the time the consumer clicks the 'purchase' button to the time the consumer and the merchant receive authorization.
How do I integrate my website with PSiGate services?
PSiGate provides an XML interface so your website can process payments transparently and automatically while your customer is still on your site. Using this interface, you may post the transaction data directly to our server from your form or you may post it to a script on your server and then post the data to us from your script. You will need to parse the XML response with either an XML Parser or develop your own code to parse the response data. You are more than welcome to test your implementation of our API with the test account information found within the API packages.
What programming languages can I use to integrate PSiGate?
With PSiGate, it doesn't matter what platform or development language you use as long as you have a live Internet connection and can emulate an HTML form POST using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Our XML API is flexible and is operating system independent. Most development languages provide libraries or objects that allow you to do this.
Does PSiGate provide any code samples?
PSiGate provides sample code in a number of different development languages. Please download our API which includes several examples along with the documentation.
