       Vend::Payment::Sage - Interchange Sage Support




           [charge route=sage param1=value1 param2=value2]




         LWP::UserAgent and Crypt::SSLeay

       Only one of these need be present and working.


       The Vend::Payment::Sage module implements the sage() routine for use with Interchange. It
       is compatible on a call level with the other Interchange payment modules.

       To enable this module, place this directive in "interchange.cfg":

           Require module Vend::Payment::Sage

       This must be in interchange.cfg or a file included from it.

       Make sure CreditCardAuto is off (default in Interchange demos).

       The mode can be named anything, but the "gateway" parameter must be set to "sage". To make
       it the default payment gateway for all credit card transactions in a specific catalog, you
       can set in "catalog.cfg":

           Variable   MV_PAYMENT_MODE  sage

       It uses several of the standard settings from Interchange payment. Any time we speak of a
       setting, it is obtained either first from the tag/call options, then from an Interchange
       order Route named for the mode, then finally a default global payment variable, For
       example, the "id" parameter would be specified by:

           [charge route=sage id=YourSage]


           Route sage id YourSageID


           Variable MV_PAYMENT_ID      YourSageID

       The active settings are:

       id  Your Sage account ID, supplied by Sage when you sign up.  Global parameter is

           This remaps the form variable names to the ones needed by Sage. See the "Payment
           Settings" heading in the Interchange documentation for use.

       Try the instructions above, then enable test mode. A test order should complete.

       Then move to live mode and try a sale with the card number "4111 1111 1111 1111" and a
       valid expiration date. The sale should be denied, and the reason should be in [data
       session payment_error].

       If nothing works:

       ·   Make sure you "Require"d the module in interchange.cfg:

               Require module Vend::Payment::Sage

       ·   Make sure either Net::SSLeay or Crypt::SSLeay and LWP::UserAgent are installed and
           working. You can test to see whether your Perl thinks they are:

               perl -MNet::SSLeay -e 'print "It works\n"'


               perl -MLWP::UserAgent -MCrypt::SSLeay -e 'print "It works\n"'

           If either one prints "It works." and returns to the prompt you should be OK (presuming
           they are in working order otherwise).

       ·   Check the error logs, both catalog and global.

       ·   Make sure you set your account ID properly.

       ·   Try an order, then put this code in a page:

                   my $string = $Tag->uneval( { ref => $Session->{payment_result} });
                   $string =~ s/{/{\n/;
                   $string =~ s/,/,\n/g;
                   return $string;

           That should show what happened.

       ·   If all else fails, consultants are available to help with integration for a fee.  See

       There is actually nothing *in* Vend::Payment::Sage. It changes packages to Vend::Payment
       and places things there.
