Payments taken online work in a very similar way as those taken through your Eftpos
terminal. Transactions are transferred into your bank account daily in a lump sum as are your Eftpos transactions. The Payment Gateway has reporting features for reconciling payments and administrative tasks are carried out there including refunds etc.
YesBookit has an interface for the following Payment Gateway systems –SecurePay, eWAY, and PayStation, so you must choose from one of these. Check that it is one that your bank uses.
There are 2 ways you can get a payment gateway:
Use SecurePay’s SOPS (SecurePay Online Payments) https://www.securepay.com.au/pricing/securepay-pricing which is an all-in-one solution that only requires
you to contact SecurePay. To sign-up for SecurePay use this link here as it will automatically let SecurePay know you are a YesBookit client.
Apply to your bank for an Online Merchant Facility and tell your bank which Payment Gateway you will be using (eg SecurePay). If your bank asks for information about your website taking credit card details, please explain to them that your website WILL NOT be involved in ANY transactions at all as YesBookit will pass payment details to the payment gateway of your choice using SSL. Once the application is completed and the Letter of Offer has been signed by the agent the bank will then issue the Merchant Electronic Number and Terminal ID. You will then be informed by your Payment Gateway provider that your account has been configured and activated for processing real-time payments to your bank merchant facility.
Once these steps have been completed the Payment Gateway will be ready to be activated in YesBookit via Options > Settings > Payment tab. Use this checklist to follow the activation steps.
