Why use Checkout

With Checkout, complete one integration to enjoy the benefits of multiple payment methods.

Do I need to secure my website

Checkout, the Peach Payments hosted payments page, is secure. Checkout redirects customers out of your website to complete their payment. You might choose to add an SSL certificate to your website if necessary.

How do I show a particular payment method during the redirect

You can set the defaultPaymentMethod for your Checkout request. If defaultPaymentMethod=CARD, the customer first sees the card widget when they arrive on the Checkout page. They can go 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.

Can I add local domain to the allowlist

No, you can only add publicly accessible domains to the allowlist.
