Vend::Payment::BusinessOnlinePayment(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Vend::Payment::BusinessOnlinePayment(3)

Vend::Payment::BusinessOnlinePayment - Interchange wrapper for Business::OnlinePayment

    [charge mode=onlinepayment param1=value1 param2=value2]

  Business::OnlinePayment:: gateway module
  See L<> or 

This is a wrapper around Business::OnlinePayment for Interchange.
The Vend::Payment::BusinessOnlinePayment module implements the onlinepayment() routine for use with Interchange. It is compatible on a call level with the other Interchange payment modules. In theory (and even usually in practice) you could switch from another gateway to a Business::OnlinePayment supported gateway (or between different Business::OnlinePayment gateways) with a few configuration file changes.
Business::OnlinePayment is a set of related Perl modules for processing online payments (credit cards, electronic checks, and other payment systems). It provides a consistant interface for processing online payments, regardless of the gateway backend being used, in the same way that DBI provides an consistant interface to different databases.
See <> for more information and supported gateways.
It is hoped that a future version of Interchange will do all credit card processing through Business::OnlinePayment, but this is my no means guaranteed and the timeframe is unknown. Think ALSA somewhere around Linux 2.2 and you've got the general idea.
Currently this module is recommended for people with gateway processors unsupported by a native Interchange Vend::Payment:: module and for the adventurous.

To enable this module, place this directive in "interchange.cfg":
    Require module Vend::Payment::BusinessOnlinePayment
This must be in interchange.cfg or a file included from it.
The mode can be named anything, but the "gateway" parameter must be set to "onlinepayment". To make it the default payment gateway for all credit card transactions in a specific catalog, you can set in "catalog.cfg":
    Variable   MV_PAYMENT_MODE  onlinepayment
It uses several of the standard settings from Interchange payment. Any time we speak of a setting, it is obtained either first from the tag/call options, then from an Interchange order Route named for the mode, then finally a default global payment variable, For example, the "setting" parameter would be specified by:
    [charge mode=onlinepayment setting=value]
    Route onlinepayment setting value
    Variable MV_PAYMENT_SETTING      value
The following settings are available:
Your Business::OnlinePayment processor.
Your Business::OnlinePayment login.
Your Busienss::OnlinePayment password.
The type of transaction to be run. Valid values are:
    Interchange         Business::OnlinePayment
    ----------------    -----------------------
        auth            Authorization Only
        return          Credit
        sale            Normal Authorization
        settle          Post Authorization
        void            Void
Set this true if you wish to operate in test mode. Make sure to verify that your specific Business::OnlinePayment:: gateway module supports a test mode.
In addition, any other processor options are passed to your gateway. See the documentation for your specific Business::OnlinePayment:: gateway module for details on what options are required, if any.
