Can credit cards be processed through an API?


Can credit cards be processed through an API?

  • Can credit cards be processed through an API?
  • I'm converting an existing site to Sitefinity. The site has one page for collecting donations. We  currently have an account and use a 3rd party component for processing the credit cards. I'm having trouble running the 3rd party credit card processing component in Sitefinity (may not be compatible with windows7/2008). I was wondering if theres an API that the E-Commerce module uses that  I could tap into for processing credit cards. For this site I don't need a shopping cart or any of the other nice extra's that the E-Commerce comes with.
  • Hi David,

    There is an API for payment processing of credit cards. You can find it here.
    I will try to provide you with a sample code.

    We have plans to implement  "Points based Shopping Cart" as one of our features for future versions of Sitefinity eCommerce.
    However the current version of Sitefinity has limited capabilities in extending the eCommerce system

    Adding custom payment methods is not supported in this release. However it is in something we are looking into for the next release of Sitefinity.

    Best wishes,
