Secure Form Guide

Secure Form is a ready-to-go solution that allows quick and easy integration with PayLane systems. You only have to redirect your customers to the payment form we give you. There’s also no need for you to pass any PCI scans or have an SSL certificate (though having one is always recommended), since the actual payment is submitted via our secure payment form (hence the name). From the customer’s point of view, making a purchase looks like this:
  1. After choosing goods on the merchants website, a customer wishes to checkout and pay for selected products/services.
  2. The customer is redirected to PayLane’s Secure Form, where they enter all information needed to process the payment.
  3. After submitting the form, the customer is redirected back to the merchant’s website, where they learn about the payment/transaction status.

What’s the developer’s job?

You just need to pass the needed transaction information (such as the product name, prices etc.) to our Secure Form using POST. After submitting the payment, the customer is redirected back to your website along with some response messages. It’s up to you whether the response will be sent using GET or POST. You can use the said response to inform your customer whether the transaction was successful. So, to sum up, the whole process can be described in the following steps:
  1. A customer, being on the merchants website, wishes to pay for the selected goods.
  2. The website sends transaction information to PayLane’s payment form and redirects the customer there.
  3. After the form is filled and submitted, PayLane processes the payment (sends the data to acquiring and issuing banks, card associations etc.) using the provided payment information.
  4. The said institutions (they may vary depending on the payment method) respond to PayLane, allowing to finish processing the payment.
  5. PayLane returns information about the payment status to the merchant’s website.
  6. The merchant can use the received information to inform his customer whether the transaction was successful and what its status is.
