Please don't test your biller setup with WebBilling's test account—it won't work correctly.
Setting Up on WebBilling's Website
While registering with WebBilling, make sure to take down the Merchant ID and Merchant Password that they provide for you. This information will be necessary for setting up WebBilling in NATS3.
Setting Up WebBilling in NATS
Note: If you are on a version prior to 126.96.36.199 WebBilling bills surfers in Euros.
If you are on a version after 188.8.131.52 WebBilling will bill the surfer in their local currency.
When prompted, fill out your transaction and chargeback fees, along with when you wish to deduct them. Fill in the Merchant ID and Merchant Password that were provided to you by WebBilling 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 "WebBilling" settings, and fill in any of the available optional settings you want to use. This includes Template ID, your Join Form Language/Background Color/Form Color/Anchor Color, and various additional parameters.
Once you have done that, scroll down to the "Join Options this Site Offers" section and create or edit a join option to add WebBilling compatibility. Under "Biller Codes for this Join Option," fill out any of the provided optional WebBilling settings. This includes your default currency, screen/bank statement descriptions, and various optional Package IDs. Filling out any of the settings in this section overrides WebBilling's default settings to display your desired settings.
WebBilling 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 WebBilling for assistance with this.
To set up cross sells in NATS, go to the Cross Sells Admin and click "Incoming" or "Outgoing" from the navigation tabs at the top of the page (depending on whether you are receiving or sending the cross sale).
If you are sending a cross sell to another site, go to the "Outgoing" section. Choose WebBilling 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 WebBilling 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 Package ID that you received when configuring cross sells with NetBilling. 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.
Localized Join Forms
By using the Geo-Target Join Options available in NATS, you can create a different cascades to use for each country that you process transactions from -- this allows you to direct surfers to a pre-join form in their native language.
If you create multiple cascades for multiple languages, you should make sure that you localize your cascade descriptions as well. In order to start this process, WebBilling provided us with the following translations to use in localized cascade descriptions:
- English: Direct Debit
- German: "Lastschrift"
- Spain: "Cargo Bancario"
- Netherlands: "Automatische Inkasso"
While the Geo-Target Join Options instructions let you display one locale-specific locale option, you may find it simpler to display one join options for each locale. Go to the Sites Admin, select a site, and add four options. For each join option, choose WebBilling, enter the join option settings, and use one of the above translations in the Join Form Text. This displays one join option for each language.
Note: WebBilling suggests you make the German translation, "Lastschrift," the first join option.
