PayTabs plugins make the integration with the PayTabs payment gateway very easy by providing a ready-made and easy-to-install plugin that enables you to be ready and go with a few steps, to get you up and running with your business. 

This article is dedicated to walking you through the business aspect of which PayTabs' mechanisms this SDK built to accept the payment that you already initiated in the previous step (Step 3 - Magento Plugin | Initiating the payment).

Accepting any payments will be categorized into two phases:

Phase I - The Type of the Payment

This phase would be already practicaly handled in the second step (Step 2 - Configure the integration method)

  • There are three initiative transaction types provided by PayTabs which are "Sale", "Auth", and "Refund" and two transaction classes which are "Ecom" and "Recurring". All of them are supported in our plugin. You will need just to configure the (2.12 Magento Plugin | Payment Action) you want to manage this point, as for the "Refund" you will need to check the 7.2 Magento Plugin | Refund the Order Amountone.

  • As for the recurring option which enables your customer for saving their cards to be used later within the same payment method, please follow the (2.13 Magento Plugin | Enable Tokenization) manual to walk you through how it will be handled and managed via this plugin.

Phase II - How are you going to accept/handle customers' card details?

This phase would be already handled authomatically by the plugin in the third step (Step 3 - Initiating the payment)

In our plugins, we follow our mechanism called "Hosted Payment Page" which implies that payments will be hosted, handled, and performed within our own servers. 

However, if you are looking for a customized payment page that has the same "look and feel" as your website/store checkout page, just after customizing your PayTabs payment page UI to simulate your own UI design, you can check the (2.3 Magento Plugin | Manage the iFrame mode) configuration option which enables you to do so. This also will empower you to not redirect/navigate your customers to any external destination outside your website/store checkout page.

Other types of integration mechanism such as Managed Form and/or Own Form is not supported in this plugin.
