If you want to use your own secure servers but still want to take advantage of the North Payments Payment Network then we can offer our web services. This is for those merchants who want to access the payment network as an integral part of a dedicated e-commerce application of their own. This allows you to use our service in additional ways, just like the API. Unlike the API you do not need to install a client program on your server but rather the web services are accessed via an interface to the North Payments client which provides a username and password for authentication.
Using North Payments Web Services allows you:
- More control over the settlement transaction schedule for each transaction as well as allowing you to automate refunds and authorisation reversals
- To write applications for payment processing and so giving you greater development capability
- To integrate your payment solution into a legacy or other back-office system
If you would like more information regarding North Payments’ API, please feel free to call our Customer Support Team here.
