PayU Integration – Integrate Payment Gateway with a Website

To get paid online securely, payment gateways are important. So, before you understand the process to integrate payment gateway with your website, let’s glance through the necessary terms first.

If you are an entrepreneur with an established offline business, then with the current trends, you are probably planning to take your business online. E-Commerce has changed customer behavior drastically. With mobile phones are now at easy disposal, any product can be ordered from anywhere and at any time. The purchasing power of customers has increased at a larger scale.

Guide to Integrate Payment Gateway using PayUMoney

The different payment gateway has a different procedure that needs to be followed to integrate them with specific websites. Integration guides are available on the gateways’ websites that can be read through before implementing the steps. You can also read articles on How to integrate payment gateway on our website.

In Hosted payment gateways, the merchant receives a piece of JavaScript code that places the button on the merchant’s website. Clicking on the button will activate the rest of the API and the checkout flow for processing the transaction. Typically, these gateways are optimal for small and local businesses that prefer to hand over the control of the payment processor to the vendor.

In cases of Direct Post Method, the vendor sets up the API connection between the merchant’s shopping cart and the payment gateway to post the card data.

Non-hosted payment gateways need an engineering team to set up the payment gateway for a website. They are integrated via APIs to the merchant’s server.

I am taking an example of PayUMoney to integrate the payment gateway and will take WooCommerce as an e-commerce plugin.

Some general points to keep in mind:

  • Understand what the payment gateway and payment processor that you choose, will do to your website. Make sure to test the payment gateway before committing to its services.
  • Consult and check with your web host. Today most web hosts have their own set of payment gateways from where merchants can pick and choose one. Check your website’s control panel or the admin page of your online store and look for payment gateway options.
  • Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the payment gateway. If you feel that you want to opt for a merchant account, then sign up with one and read their service agreement too. Merchant accounts too, charge merchants per transaction.
  • If you are new to the online environment, it is better to make sure that the payment gateway provider is available 24×7 for technical support and other grievances.
  • Always browse your options. Check with what kind of payment methods and options are supported by the different payment gateways.

While integrating a payment gateway, judge the ease with which it can be integrated. Know about the success rate of the payment gateway. Consider the recommendations from established enterprises and customer reviews. Choose the one with optimal funding speed. After providing a particular service or selling a product, you will want the funds in your account as soon as possible.

Also, think about bendability. In the future, you might consider expansion for your business. At that time, easy conversion rates and accepting payments in International currencies and from International banks will become essential.

Finally, keep the transaction fees, annual maintenance charges, and the set-up cost of the gateway. Investing in an expensive plan, in the beginning, may not be the right choice.

Channelize your work and talent in the right direction to reach the correct audience.
