Credit Card

If a Buyer organization chooses to collect payments from Site Users paying for their orders with credit card, the Credit Card module is where Buyer Admins can enable and configure credit card as a payment method for the Marketplace. In this scenario, the Buyer organization will be responsible for paying Suppliers outside the system.

Set the toggle on the Credit Card page to Accept to enable credit card as a payment method. Additional page content will appear. Use the Payment Tax dropdown to indicate whether or not tax should be suppressed for orders paid for with credit card. In most cases, this should be left as Do Not Suppress Tax.

Select Accepted Credit Cards

Use the checkboxes to select which of the four major credit cards you will accept on the Marketplace. For each card that you accept, you have the option to enter an alternate card code. If the Buyer organization has integrations with data management tools like ASI or accounting software like Sage, it may be helpful to assign an alternate code to each enabled credit card that matches the credit card code used by your integrated software. This will make passing data between softwares cleaner.

Select a Processing Method

Use the dropdown to select one of three card processing methods you’d like to use on the Marketplace:

  1. Test Mode (No Processing). This method should be used for testing the Marketplace. The option to use credit card will appear at checkout, but payment will not be processed.
  2. Authorize Only. This method authorizes the credit card entered at checkout, but payment will not be processed.
  3. Authorize and Capture. This method authorizes the credit card and payment will be processed. 

For both the Authorize Only and the Authorize and Capture methods, use the toggles to indicate whether Site Users should be required to enter their billing address and the 3-digit card verification value on the back of their card at checkout.

Select an Online Credit Card Gateway

When Authorize and Capture is selected, the Select an Online Credit Card Gateway section will appear. The Buyer organization must have a PayPal PayFlow Pro account to process credit cards. Enter the Login ID, Partner ID, and Password to connect Agora to your PayFlow account.

When you’ve finished making your changes, click the Save button at the top or bottom right-hand side of the page. Credit card will also need to be enabled as a payment method in Quoting Settings before Site Users can use credit card at checkout for Quote orders.
