Please don't test your biller setup with Commerce Gate's test account—it won't work correctly.
Setting Up on CommerceGate's Website
While registering with Commerce Gate, make sure to take down the Customer-ID, Password, Website-ID, Offer-ID, and Package-ID that were provided to you by your biller. This information will be necessary for setting up Commerce Gate in NATS3.
Use the New Site link on the left side to configure your sites in CommerceGate's system. Then go to the My Websites link on the left and click on one of your sites. For each site, enter the following information;
- Callback URL: http://linkdomain/signup/process_commercegate.php
- Callback Type: string
Tell them the site will push the member's username and password to the payment page, and ask them to accept the push.
Set up CommerceGate in NATS
When prompted, fill out your transaction and chargeback fees, along with when you wish to deduct them. Fill in the Customer-ID and Password (optional) that were provided to you by Commerce Gate under the "Account Info" section. If you were not provided with this information, please contact your biller to receive it.
Next, go to the Sites Admin, create or edit a site, and scroll down to the "Biller Details" section. Find the "CommerceGate" settings, and enter your Website-ID for every site you have set up with Commerce Gate. You can get your Website ID from the Commerce Gate configuration interface; click on the row for a site and look for the field labeled 'Website ID'.
Once you have done that, scroll down to the "Join Options this Site Offers" section and create or edit a join option to add Commerce Gate compatibility. Under "Biller Codes for this Join Option," enter your Commerce Gate Offer-ID and Package-ID into the "CGATE Offer-ID" and "CGATE Package-ID" fields for every join option you have set up with Commerce Gate. You can get the CGATE Offer-ID by going to the 'My Websites' link on the left side of the CommerceGate admin. Click the row for a site and the next page will contain a section labeled 'Website Offers'. Each row in this table contains a field labeled 'Offer Id'. Once you have done this, click Save.
Commerce Gate also supports Cross Sell transactions through NATS. In order to process cross sale transactions, however, you will first have to set them up with your biller. Please contact Commerce Gate for assistance with this.
If you are sending a cross sell to another site, go to the "Outgoing" section. Choose CommerceGate from the "Biller" drop-down menu and click Add. On the next page, you will be prompted to fill in the Title, Description, and Disclaimer for your cross sell option.
If you are receiving the cross sell, go to the "Incoming" section. Choose Commerce Gate from the Biller drop-down menu, and click Add. When prompted, choose the site and program you want to associate with the cross sale, and fill in the "Comment" field.
Under "Data," fill in the Website-ID and Offer-ID that you received when registering with Commerce Gate. Finally, fill in your desired Initial Days (length of initial membership), Initial Dollar (cost of initial membership), Recurring Days (length of recurring membership), and Recurring Dollar (cost of recurring membership). You can also choose if you want this cross sell to be a trial membership.
- When entering your Customer-ID, Offer-IDs, and Website-IDs, remove any leading zero's. So if your Offer-ID is 00300, just enter 300 into NATS.
- If you do not collect usernames and passwords on your NATS pre-join forms, you need to tell Commerce Gate about this.
- If the domain name of your pre-join form is different then the public domain of the actual site, you need Commerce Gate to authorize your site domain.
