Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout

Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout lets you accept payments made using a web browser either from a computer or mobile device and packs in additional features to improve the checkout experience while also minimizing the burden on IT staff.

Who is a good candidate to use a Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout?

Businesses who:

  • Don't want the risk of handling or storing sensitive payment data on their
    own servers
  • Want to achieve and maintain payment security (PCI) certification faster
    and easier
  • Value the ability to add/drop payment types and make other changes to the
    checkout pages without code change
  • Require mobile optimized checkout screens
  • Require checkout pages in different languages
  • Have a resource familiar with basic Perl, PHP, JSP, ASP.NET or Ruby
    scripting and host their own server, or use a hosting provider that
    supports these scripting languages
  • Want to accept payments on our secure URL that looks to be part of their
    own store

A Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout is probably not right for you if...

  • You already have your own PCI DSS compliant order form or don't want to

What technical skills are required?

Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout is very easy to implement and requires
minimal scripting knowledge. We offer sample code in Perl, PHP, JSP,
ASP.NET and Ruby. The three main actions are:

  • Generate a security key within the CyberSource environment. Place it onto
    your own Web server to validate your identity to our systems
  • Configure your order page by accepting defaults or customizing it
  • Modify your Web script (copy and paste) so that an HTML "Buy" button
    appears on your checkout page

You can implement the Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout in two ways:

  • Default: use the default receipt/decline pages and messages with limited
    customization options
  • Customized: have full control to use your own receipt/decline pages and

CyberSource Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout replaces the CyberSource Web/Mobile.
