A PaymentProcessor represents an entity that processes payments of one or
more types. In the Commerce Cloud Digital system, a payment processor is just a container
for configuration values, which describe, for example, the parameters (URL,
merchant ID, password, etc) required for connecting to a payment gateway.
The system has several built in PaymentProcessors. These are:
The first two of these are merely placeholders with no associated preference
values. The remaining system payment processors define preference values
which are maintained in the Business Manager and are used in conjunction with
built-in Commerce Cloud Digital payment integrations. Preferences of system
PaymentProcessors are not intended to be read programmatically.
Merchants may also define custom payment processors. This is done by defining
a payment processor with an arbitrary ID in the Business Manager, and then
configuring an attribute group with the same ID on the
system object. Attributes added to the
group will be considered preferences of the payment processor and will be
readable through getPreferenceValue(String)
. Merchants can design
their checkout process to read these preferences at run time for connecting
to their payment gateways.
in the system is associated with at most
one PaymentProcessor. This basically represents the physical payment gateway
which processes the (logical) payment method. Each payment processor may be
associated with an arbitrary number of payment methods. Also, each payment
transaction has one PaymentProcessor which is set by custom code during the
