Hosted Payment Pages Integration

Configure First Data Payeezy Gateway Payment Page Settings

The First Data Payeezy Gateway Payment Pages configuration determines how each payment is processed. This configuration covers payment processing presentation and functionality such as Relay Response and email notification.

This ID is passed in as the x_login parameter when the merchant redirects to the Payment Page to process a transaction. See Section 6.1, "Essential Fields", for more information.

Payeezy Gateway Payment Pages are administered through the "Payment Pages" tab in the Payeezy Gateway Real-time Payment Manager (RPM), accessible only to administrators.

Merchants can add as many Payeezy Gateway Payment Pages as required. This allows the support of:
