Please don't test your biller setup with NATS4 RSBilling's test account—it won't work correctly.
Setting Up at RSBilling
Before you can begin setting up RSBilling to handle transactions in NATS4, you must first sign up for an RSBilling account. You can do this on River Styx Internet's website, located at http://www.sentrypayments.com
Please make sure that your server is allowed to access the domain secure.sentrypayments.com by River Styx Internet so that your NATS installation will get the most up to date IP address list.
Setting Up RSBilling in NATS
When prompted, fill in your RSBilling Merchant ID, Merchant Password, and Remote Server ID. You can also fill out the optional Transaction Server and Reporting Server fields here. All of this information must be obtained directly from RSBilling. If you do not have this information, please contact your biller to get the required information. Click Save when you have filled out the required fields.
Next, go to the Sites Admin to continue configuring RSBilling in NATS. Create a new tour, or edit an already existing tour to use RSBilling with. On the next page, scroll down to the "Biller Details" section and enter your Site ID in the field marked, "RSBILLING Site ID."
Once you have done that, scroll down to the "Join Options for this Tour" section, and edit the join options you want RSBilling to process transactions with. On the next page, enter your Product ID in the field labeled, "RSBilling Product ID" and click Save.
RSBilling also supports cross sale transactions in NATS4. To begin configuring NATS to accept these transactions, go to the Upsells Admin. For more information on Cross Sales in NATS, please see our NATS4 Configuring Cross Sells wiki article.
Outgoing Cross Sales
In the Upsells Admin, begin by configuring an Outgoing Cross Sale (if applicable). To do so, scroll down to the "Biller" drop-down menu and choose RSBilling from your list of options.
On the next page, you will be prompted for a variety of information. Fill out the title, description, and disclaimer for your cross sale option, and choose if you want cross sales enabled for all join options. Next, fill in your Site ID, Product ID, Ref Code, Merchant ID, Merchant Password, and Domain. Once you have filled out the available fields, click Save Changes.
Incoming Cross Sales
To set up incoming cross sales to process transactions through RSBilling, go to the Upsells Admin and click the "Incoming Cross Sells" tab at the top of the page. Select RSBilling from the "Biller" drop-down menu, select the site and the program that you want to associate with this cross sale option, then click Add New Option.
When prompted, enter the title and fees/lengths of your join options. Under "Biller Info," enter your RSBilling Site ID, Product ID, Merchant ID, Merchant Password, and Remote Server ID. Click save changes when you have filled out the required fields, and your cross sale should now be configured in NATS.
RSBilling offers the UpgradePlus feature, which allows you to shorten a Member's Trial by offering them incentives to upgrade their membership in your site's Members Area. Most NATS users choose to do this by offering two seperate Members Areas -- one that provides limited content for members with trial memberships, and one that offers full access to your content for members who have fully-paid memberships. Once your member completes their upgrade through UpgradePlus, you will need to update their member record to reflect the changes. Please see our NATS4 Upgrade Plus wiki article for more information on how to use this feature.
When offering the UpgradePlus feature through RSBilling, you can also choose to add a delay on the member's upgrade. By doing so, you can create a waiting period between when the member chooses to upgrade their account, and when they receive full access to your site's content. This can be useful for ensuring that your member's payments are valid before upgrading their accounts to full memberships. This delay can be specified per option using the field "Uprade Delay:(optional)" under the Biller Codes for your join options. Here you will specify the number of hours you want to delay the transaction, and RSBilling will schedule the transaction to occur that many hours from the time of the upgrade request. Instead of getting the transaction NATS will be informed that the transaction is pending, and as such will not modify the member record. The member record will remain in trial until the conversion transaction comes in from RSBilling.
If you wish to process pending transactions with RSBilling's UpgradePlus, go to the Configuration Admin, and navigate to the "Billers" section. In the RSBilling settings, you will find a setting labeled RSBILLING_DELAY_UPGRADE. Simply enable this setting, and pending RSBILLGING sales will process in NATS when upgraded. This would be useful if you are trying to delay the conversion transaction, but not the actual conversion of the member record from trial to full.
