Introduction to Integration

What is CCNow Checkout?

It is CCNow’s hosted payment page integration method for credit and debit cards, with optional PayPal Express Checkout that securely handles all of the steps in processing a transaction, including:

  • Collection of customer payment information through a secure hosted form,
  • Generation of a receipt page with a copy to the customer by email,
  • Secure transmission to CCNow's payment gateway for transaction processing,
  • Secure storage of cardholder information (including for optional recurring billing).

CCNow Checkout does not require clients to collect, transmit or store sensitive cardholder or bank account information to process transactions.

CCNow Checkout is equivalent to Authorize.net’s SIM (Server Integration Method) or Simple Checkout.

NOTE: If you wish collection of customer payment information securely on your website instead of using CCNow Checkout you must obtain a direct merchant account from a supported acquiring bank and implement DalPay Direct (1Mb PDF guide) from our sister service DalPay.

Simple Buy Now Buttons or Shopping Cart/API Integration

Use a simple buy now button, or post customer contact and address information securely to CCNow (via Shopping Cart or API Integration).

CCNow Checkout’s co-branded checkout sequence prompts the user for their payment card details on CCNow's secure web form or redirects them (if required) for online bank ePayment transactions and 3-D Secure authentication.

See the 'CCNow Developer' menu to the left for API documentation, starting with the Transaction Post API.
