E Xact and CS-Cart Integration Guide
E-xact Payment Gateway IDs
E-xact’s system uses a Payment Gateway ID and Gateway Password, to identify an individual’s E-xact payment gateway. The codes also establish the interaction between the E-xact software you integrated into your solution and our payment servers. The IDs you will receive consist of:
Gateway ID (9 character identifier)
Password (variable length).
As a developer there are a series of Payment Gateway IDs you will encounter:
Test Acount IDs (for test environment)
Individual Test Account IDs (optional, for test environment)
E-xact Production ID (for production environment)
When you are ready to move from Test mode to Production mode (which means you are ready to send live transactions through to the banks), you will have to replace the Test Account ID with the E-xact Production ID. The E-xact Production ID is only set after the merchant customer has completed their registration with E-xact.
All developers who have registered E-xact’s APIs have access to E-xact’s test servers and testing account, ConnectionShop. This testing area is open to the general public. Upon registration of the component you are automatically assigned an E-xact Test Account ID.
Take the credentials you just obtained from E Xact and navigate to Trexle dashboard, click Payments Gateways and select E Xact from the drop down menu as shown below.
Fill into your E Xact credential and click Add Gateway. Click the Activate button next to E Xact, and it will give you a success message and the button will turn into green. You should see something like below.
