Direct Mode Processing

You are here

Direct Mode is designed for Merchants who need to have complete control over their transaction processing. Using Direct Mode, the card holder's browser is never directed to our site. In fact, Direct Mode can be used for Automatic Billing, Telephone and Retail orders as well as Internet orders.

Transaction data is sent to our system from the back-end of the Merchant's server by software written or installed by the merchant. This gives the Merchant the ability to completely customize and integrate real time payment processing into his own application. To implement a Direct Mode client, familiarity with sockets and network programming is required.
