E Xact and Zen 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.
Download the Trexle Zen Card module from our github repository, and upload the contents of the files directory to your suitable Zen Cart installation version (supported versions are 1.5.0 to 1.5.5). From your admin panel, browse into Modules/Payments as show on the screen below.
Click on Trexle Payments, then click install
Configure Trexle Payments with your API secret key, modify the other settings per your needs.
Then create a test product, logout from admin, and test the normal customer checkout experience.
Testing with valid test credit cards within the test environment
The following cards are valid test credit card numbers. They will only work within E-xact’s test environment. Please do not use these sample cards within the production environment, as they cannot be used to validate the production gateway.
