Why use Checkout?

With Checkout, you only need to do one integration to enjoy the benefits of numerous payment methods.

Do I need to secure my website?

Our hosted payments page (Checkout) is secured. Customers are redirected out of your website in order to complete their payment. You might choose to add an SSL certificate to your website if neccessary.

How do I show a particular payment method during the redirect?

You can set the defaultPaymentMethod for your Checkout request. If your defaultPaymentMethod=CARD, when the customer is redirected to the Checkout page, they first see the card widget. They can navigate back to see other payment methods.

Why can't I use the signature generated for the Checkout payment request to get the payment status?

You can't reuse the signature because its encryption input is different. See the Authentication and authorisation section for details on how to generate a signature for the payment status call.

Why do Checkout and the payment methods appear differently depending on the payment extension used?

See the support knowledge base for details on why the Checkout appearance sometimes varies.
