Online shops without payment gateways are quite impossible. Payment gateway allows the website to link the client payment account with the website account. Payment gateways allow for the credit account details being secure. It is an easy way to increase retention, grow loyalty, and improve customer satisfaction. This shows the companies technical connections work well and are managed effectively. The Drupal Payment Module provides you a secured way of processing payments. Drupal is a free, open source content management framework maintained and developed by a community of 630,000+ users and developers. It is a free software under the GNU Public License. That means its completely free to download, use, modify and share it with others.
Drupal runs over a million sites ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including WhiteHouse.Gov, World Economic Forum, Stanford University, and Examiner.com. Ubercart is an exciting open source e-commerce shopping cart that fully integrates your online store with Drupal, the leading open source content management system. PayPal Payments Advanced (PPA) is a payment platform allowing the merchants to accept the payments funded by credit card or PayPal account. PayPal, a global leader in online payments, hosted this solution.
PayPal Payments Advanced provides merchants with a PayPal merchant account. Integration with PPA is similar to integration with the PayPal Pay flow Gateway. PayPal Payments Advanced is a much cost-effective option provided by PayPal to accept payments on your own website. The Drupal PayPal Payment Module for Drupal e-Commerce works by embedding an iframe in your checkout process. This gives you the advantage of an on-site integrated seamless checkout without worrying about PCI compliance. PayPal handles that with the hosted pages behind the iframe. So you don’t need to purchase an SSL certificate. The module allows the user to stay on site for the entire checkout process.
The payment transaction security will be taken care by PayPal. PayPal only charges $5/month for this service. The module accepts Credit Card payments and process through PayPal Advanced payment gateway integration. The module supports Authorize & Capture and Authorize only & Capture later feature. Authorize Only of payment – The transaction is only authorized to be captured later. Authorize & Capture payment – The amount is authorized and captured immediately. The merchant can authorize only or authorize and capture the payment. Later can capture the amount from the module backend.
The merchant can capture the authorized payments from the module backend. It is simple and quick to install. The store owners can configure the module between Authorization and Capture or Authorization only and Capture later – when the products are ready for shipment. The module is compatible with Drupal version 6 and 7. By using this module you can stay connected with your site for payments, without redirecting the customers to the PayPal site.
