       Vend::Payment::iTransact - Interchange iTransact Support




           [charge mode=itransact param1=value1 param2=value2]




         LWP::UserAgent and Crypt::SSLeay

       Only one of these need be present and working.


       The Vend::Payment::iTransact module implements the itransact() 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::iTransact

       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 "itransact". 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  itransact

       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 mode=itransact id=YouriTransact]


           Route itransact id YouriTransactID


           Variable MV_PAYMENT_ID      YouriTransactID

       The active settings are:

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

           The internet address of your site. Defaults to "http://__SERVER_NAME__" if not set.
           Global parameter is MV_PAYMENT_HOME_PAGE.

           This remaps the form variable names to the ones needed by iTransact. 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::iTransact

       ·   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::iTransact. It changes packages to
       Vend::Payment and places things there.
