Payments Gateway


A payment gateway is a merchant service offered by an e-commerce application service provider (PAYTM) that authorizes credit card or direct payment processing for e-businesses, online retailers, bricks and clicks.

Quixy is providing Payment Gateway Integrations for seamless online transactions from Quixy apps. Payments can now be made directly from the Quixy platform for account receivable use-cases. This feature's sole purpose is to collect money based on the requirements.

NOTE
Payments currently can only be processed through the PAYTM gateway; however, gradually, we will bring in the other gateways such as Razorpay, CCAvenue, PayUMoney, etc., as well.

For Example: 

Consider a scenario in which an organization needs to collect money from their customers when they place an order using Quixy app. The organization administrator can turn on the Payment Gateway Integration using Paytm account and enable PGI integration in the app workflow to collect the money from Customer. The collected amount will reflect in the Organization's Paytm account automatically.

How to configure Payments Gateway?

TIP

If you want to see the Payments Gateway feature work, either for testing or for live transactions, you must have a few things in place (listed below) before proceeding to the configuration section.

Note: Listed below are the two levels in the Payments Gateway configuration process.

  1. You should have a PAYTM Merchant Account. (Do you know why? , you will need details like Merchant ID, Merchant Key, and Website Name later in the configuration, which will be provided to PAYTM Merchant Account by PAYTM)
  2. To initiate a transaction, create a Quixy app. The app must include four mandatory data capture fields: Transaction Amount (Number), Currency (Text or Dropdown or Checkbox), Customer ID (Text or Number), and Order ID (Text or Number).

Additional fields can be added if you want to keep track of the transaction's response and save it in a database for future reference, such as the Transaction ID, Status, Response code, and Response message.

Once you have the above two, you are ready to move on to the configuration.
