How to add REALEX as a Payment Gateway

 

You will first need to have set up a Merchant Account to use Realex’s Payment Gateway.

 

When Realex have set up your TEST account, they will send you your Realex Merchant ID and your Shared Secret Code.

 

Go to My Account > Payment Gateway

Tick the ACTIVE option

Copy your Realex Merchant ID into the ‘Account reference’ field

Copy your Shared Secret Code into the ‘Secret Phrase’ field

Tick the TEST option

 

Now make a test payment.

Now go to your customer facing booking page to make a test booking:  https://[account alias].anytimebooking.eu/place_booking 

[account alias is your six digit number e.g. 354675.anytimebooking.eu or a name followed by.anytimebooking.eu if you’ve had your booking page styled]

 

When you get to the payment screen, use these test card details:

Card Type: VISA

No: 4263 7000 0000 5262

Security Code: any

Expire: any

Cardholder name: any

Address (all sections): any

Country: UK

You are looking for a 00 successful result.

 

Once the payment has gone through (check in your bookings list), phone Realex to tell them you made a successful test payment and ask them to make your account with them LIVE. They should confirm they have done this with you once they have done so.

Before signing off, go to Anytime Booking My Account > Payment Gateway and UNTICK the ‘test’ box in anticipation of the account going LIVE.

 

Once you have gone LIVE with Realex, it’s always advisable to make one more test booking with payment from a real card and then to make a refund: http://kb.anytimebooking.co.uk/recording-payments-and-credits/

Recording Payments and Credits

Every time a booking is made online or placed into the back of your Anytime Booking account a payment record is recreated and displayed on the cash list.

Online Payments

When your customer makes an online booking, they are directed to your payment gateway of choice to physically take the payment. The payment gateway, such as SagePay for example, will send a message back to your booking to say the payment was successful and automatically send out the relevant email template – this payment record will read as CARD ONLINE (WEB) on your cash list report.

GoCardless and Anytime Booking

We are currently considering a partnership with GoCardless, the UK fast-emerging Direct Debit provider, with Anytime Booking.

If you had the facility to offer your online customers the ability to pay in instalments, that’s cost effective and requires very little input from you, would you be interested?

With GoCardless, we’ve produced a short PDF explaining how this would work.  Click here -> Anytime Booking GoCardless_3

Will your customers use this to make payments to you? Would you use it? Any questions?

Leave your comments below and everyone can join in the conversation!

Manually Take Further Payments – Cardholder Not Present

It is quite common for some of our customers including Guest Houses and Bed and Breakfasts to take credit card details in case of damage during a stay, or for a no show.  This can be an administration nightmare!  Who wants the responsibility of tracking sticky notes with random credit card numbers on them?

Merchant account requirements: privacy policy

Your Merchant Banking Provider will normally require you to place your Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy on your website in order for you to be compliant with your Merchant Banking contract.  Check with your Merchant Banking provider to see what their exact requirements are.

Somewhere on your website you should have a prominent link to a privacy policy.  An example of one which can be adapted to your needs is shown below.

We would recommend putting all links of this nature in your website footer.

Payment Gateways

A Payment Gateway is an online application which authorises payments for online retailers and internet businesses. It is the equivalent of a physical terminal located in most retail outlets. Payment gateways protect card details by encrypting sensitive information, such as card numbers, to ensure that information is passed securely from customer to payment processor and then to you, the merchant.

 

WHEN YOU ARE STARTING OUT, WE SUGGEST YOU CONSIDER USING EITHER PAYPAL OR STRIPE – THEN AS THE VOLUME OF YOUR TRANSACTIONS GOES UP, CONSIDER MOVING TO ANOTHER PAYMENT GATEWAY AND A MERCHANT ACCOUNT.

  • PayPal and Stripe are Payment Gateways, but do not require a merchant account. 
  • They are quick and easy to set up and can operate through your normal business banking or personal account.
  • You can also take payments using your mobile phone with them. 
  • They are relatively cheap to use when you’re taking a lower number of transactions a month.
