When you've sold some products, it's really important you can take payment for these and one way to do this is your customer using credit and debit cards via PayTrace.

For this article we'll assume that you already have a PayTrace account set up. If you don't you can set one up by contacting PayTrace here.

We're going to set this up via our App Store, but you'll need to get some information from your PayTrace account first:

If you haven't created an API user profile, follow the steps on this tutorial from PayTrace

Once you've got your API user profile credentials you'll need to go to your App Store and Select the PayTrace App. Simply type or paste in your credentials and click update.

Create API User in PayTrace

  • add an API user, not a web user.

  • ensure there are no restrictions on the user

The final step is to pop into Store Settings > Payment Methods and activate PayTrace.

CSC & AVS Setup

You can configure CSC (Card Security Code) & AVS (Address Verification System) rules from your Paytrace customer dashboard. CSC and AVS checks are extra security measures that can verify whether the customer is the true cardholder or not.

To configure CSC and AVS, login to your account and navigate to Account -> Security Settings:

  • Require CSC – If set to true, this will make the CSC field a required field on the checkout page of the site

  • AVS Auto Void – enabling this can automatically void the transaction if the billing address does not match or partially matches the address which the bank has about the customer.

  • CSC Auto Void – Transactions will be automatically voided if CSC does not match.

Visit the link below for a full explanation of all the fields and their functions:

Note: Please ignore the settings in the Integration->Checkout Settings as they are for an older version of Paytrace.
