Payment Gateways - Plans for integration of additional ones?

I'm very interested in signing on with Yola for an online store... But I have a question about Payment Gateways. Could Yola possibly integrate any of the following as a payment processor for credit cards (or are there any plans to do so?):
- ProPay
- Stripe
- Braintree
All three offer a service without a monthly statement or gateway fee and no monthly minimums. The discount rate for all is a bit more, but if you're a store that does not (yet) do a significant monthly volume in credit card sales they're significantly more cost effective than something like auth,net. (I think I calculated once upon a time that I would need to do roughly $3000/mo in credit card sales to make auth.net the better choice).

I believe all 3 have an API for integration... and those services would be of GREAT interest to any number of smaller businesses!

Thank you Thank you Thank you (in advance!!)

Hello Shirley,

Here are Ecwid's functioning payment gateways and a reference and method for installing a generic authorise.net gateway: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/15853303/P...

You will also see at the bottom of that list a link for developmental aspects of payment gateways.

Using gateways that can emulate Authorize.Net SIM
If you want to use a gateway that isn't supported yet but can emulate Authorize.Net, then still you can use it with Ecwid.
Please perfrom these steps:
Log in to your Ecwid control panel and open the "System Settings → Payment" page.
Choose the "Authorize.Net SIM" option for the "Credit card" payment method.
Click the "Account details" link, a pop-up will appear.
Click the "Advanced settings" link, then change the endpoint URL to the one provided by your payment gateway.

Set the other fields as your payment gateway asks you to and save the changes.

After that if a customer uses the "Credit Card" method, he will use your new payment gateway.

Wonderful and awesome!! It looks like Stripe is available as an option, along with plans in the works for an even smoother integration... so accepting Stripe payments will be transparent to shoppers (e.g., it will look like the shopper is not being taken away from the store for payment).

However, now I have another question. I am sooooo not technical and get confused really easily. What exactly is the connection between Ecwid and Yola? How is that connection handled when you set up a Yola store? (or should I post this question as a new question????

Thanks in advance!!!

Ecwid is the developer of the Store and Yola have had it implemented as a sub-platform. Ecwid have integrated with a number of other host platforms and are now the number 1 store implementation on Facebook.

Ecwid also have their free standing product and it was this noticeability that got them going. The Yola implementation is transparent. Basically you subscribe to the feature and it is added as a widget in your selection options. Creating a store page(s) is as simple as dragging the widget onto a page(s) and away you go.

Yola have a help resource for standard questions on the Store (https://www.yola.com/tutorials/catego.... Section #15) but you can also use Ecwids KB (http://kb.ecwid.com) for the same or deeper issues; they also have a very good forum for problem solving and you can also put forward ideas for development there. Most implementations can be handled with Yola but there are a few that are still waiting integration generally associated with multiple stores on multiple sites and also a couple of minor issues with notifications in cases of users not having the resources on their devices or PC's to read/react to certain files.

Staying on site during a transaction is an important aspect for many site owners and PayPal have only recently developed this facility for subscribers.

I think I understand. So I don't actually have to sign up with Ecwid.. just Yola because Yola has already integrated Ecwid?

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions! I owe you a HUGE tin of homemade brownies!!

Hi Shirley,

Thanks for the brownies :) Enjoyed!

There is no signing up with Ecwid directly. The subscription is all done through Yola and then is immediately accessible. Nothing more to be done for your Store subscription.
