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

Vend::Payment::NetBilling $Revision: 1.6 $

    &charge=netbilling
 
        or
 
    [charge route=netbilling param1=value1 param2=value2]

  LWP::UserAgent
  LWP::Protocol::https
  Digest::MD5
All of these need be present and working.

The Vend::Payment::NetBilling module implements the netbilling() 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 payment module to NetBilling with a few configuration file changes.

To enable this module, place this directive in your "interchange.cfg" file:
    Require module Vend::Payment::NetBilling
This must be in interchange.cfg or a file included from it.
Make sure CreditCardAuto is off which is the default in the Standard ecommerce demo.
The mode can be named anything, but the "gateway" parameter must be set to "netbilling". 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  netbilling

Vend::Payment::NetBilling 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 "id" parameter would be specified by:
    [charge route=netbilling id=YourNetBillingID]
or
    Route netbilling id YourNetBillingID
or
    Variable MV_PAYMENT_ID      YourNetBillingID

amount
Amount for the transaction. Defaults to the checkout total after all shipping, taxes discounts, and other levies have been applied.
getid
The path to the getid script on the NetBilling secure server. Defaults to "/gw/native/getid1.0".
host
The domain name of the NetBilling secure server. Defaults to "secure.netbilling.com".
id
This is your account and sitetag separated by a colon (ACCOUNT:SITETAG). ACCOUNT is the number of your Netbilling merchant or agent account, as a 12-character string. Required for ALL transactions. SITETAG is the site tag of your website configured in the Netbilling system. Required for membership transactions, optional for others. Global parameter is MV_PAYMENT_ID.
poll
The path to the poll script on the NetBilling secure server. Defaults to "/gw/native/poll1.0".
port
The port to connect to on the NetBilling secure server. Defaults to the standard https port (443).
remap
This remaps the form variable names to the ones needed by NetBilling.
remote_host
Hostname of customer for NetBilling to record for this transaction. Defaults to the session remote host.
remote_ip
IP address of customer for NetBilling to record for this transaction. Defaults to the session IP.
retries
Number of times to attempt a connection to the NetBilling secure server before giving up. Defaults to 3.
script
The path to the NetBilling direct mode 2.1 script on the NetBilling secure server. Defaults to "/gw/native/direct2.1".
secret
Your NetBilling Order Integrity Key, set in the NetBilling admin interface in step 11 of 'Fraud Defense'. Global parameter is MV_PAYMENT_SECRET.
trans_id
Netbilling Transaction ID returned from a previous transaction. Used for 'REFUND' type transactions, the amount of the refund/Void and other relevant data will be taken from the original transaction data.
transaction
The type of transaction to be run. Valid values are:
  Interchange  NetBilling
  -----------  ----------
  avs          AVS         Address verification only, no charges
  auth         AUTH        Pre-Auth a charge card for later capture
  return       CREDIT      Credit the charge/ACH account instead of charging it
  reverse      REFUND      Will attempt a VOID or a Refund of a previous 'SALE'
  sale         SALE        Standard charge/ACH transaction
  settle       CAPTURE     Capture a Pre-Authed charge
  void         REFUND      Will attempt a VOID or a Refund of a previous 'SALE'
  abort        ABORT       Will abort a pending capture
    
The "reverse" and "void" transactions are both sent as a "REFUND" because NetBilling determines internally whether to "VOID" or "REFUND" based on if the original transaction has been batched out yet. The default is "sale".
type
The payment type. Set to "K" or any string with the word "check" in it for online checking. Any other value for charge. If left unset or blank will default to the "mv_order_profile" form value or CGI variable which can be "remap"ped to a different actual form name (see "remap"). If everything is blank this defaults to charge.

Values can be obtained either from processed or raw CGI values. The CGI names can be "remap"ped with the "remap" setting above in case your form names are different.

state

In order to run a test transaction in NetBilling use the testing credit card number set in the Setup/Account Config/Credit Cards section of the NetBilling admin interface.
If nothing works:
Make sure you "Require"d the module in interchange.cfg:
    Require module Vend::Payment::NetBilling
    
Make sure LWP::UserAgent LWP::Protocol::https and Digest::MD5 are installed and working. You can test to see whether your Perl thinks they are:
    perl -MLWP::UserAgent -MLWP::Protocol::https -MDigest::MD5 -e 'print "It works\n"'
    
If it prints "It works." and returns to the prompt you should be OK (presuming they are in working order otherwise).
Check the error logs, both catalog and global.
Make sure you set your payment parameters properly.
Try an order, then put this code in a page:
    <XMP>
    [calc]
        my $string = $Tag->uneval( { ref => $Session->{payment_result} });
        $string =~ s/{/{\n/;
        $string =~ s/,/,\n/g;
        return $string;
    [/calc]
    </XMP>
    
That should show what happened.
If all else fails, consultants are available to help with integration for a fee.

There is actually nothing *in* Vend::Payment::NetBilling. It changes packages to Vend::Payment and places things there.
You cannot randomly pick a transaction ID for NetBilling's Direct Mode. The ID must be assigned from NetBilling. It should either be left blank or a guaranteed unused ID can be retrieved from NetBilling prior to issuing the transaction. This module will overwrite any transaction ID supplied it with the one assigned by NetBilling.
