PSD2 and SCA compliance in the European Union (EU)
In order to be Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) and Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) compliant, Checkfront is prepared to handle any transactions that the Payment Gateway deems applicable via the PXPay (Redirect Method) only.
The PXPost (Integrated) is no longer supported by Checkfront in the European Union (EU).
SetupBack to top
To enable the Payment Express extension, log in to your Checkfront account and navigate to Manage and then E-Commerce, making sure the Payment tab is active. Alternatively, you can find the gateway under Payment Integrations (Manage > Integrations > Payments).
Locate the Payment Express tile and click on the button labeled Payment Express. The button will turn blue when you hover your mouse over it.
Before continuing, make sure you have an active Payment Express account as this is required to properly activate the payment gateway in Checkfront.
If you don't yet have a Payment Express account, you can apply for one here.
Assuming you have an account setup and ready to go, continue reading the document below.
Enter Your Credentials
When you sign up for an account with Payment Express, you will be supplied with a set of credentials that are required to connect your Checkfront account with the Payment Express API.
You will be supplied with a PxPay User ID and a PxPay Key. Enter both of these in the fields provided and click on the blue Activate button.
Integrated BillingBack to top
With the setup described above, your customers will be redirected to a Payment Express payment page when it comes to paying for their booking.
If you wish to use Checkfront's built-in payment form you will need to activate the PxPost API through Payment Express. Contact their support team if you're not sure where to obtain these credentials.
Once you've done this, you will need to check the box labeled Use Px Post API (Integrated Billing) in the activation window.
Also, a different set of API credentials are required to use this feature. Replace the PxPay User ID and Key with your PxPost Username and Password in the activation window, as seen above.
Authorize OnlyBack to top
If you wish to use your system as an authorize only platform, you will need to check the box provided in the activation window. This will verify the card details and authorize the transaction, allowing you to process the payment when the customer arrives at your location.
