Hosted Payment Pages - How They Work
Updated on 30 Aug 2022
Minute to read
The Hosted Payment Page is a feature of the Helcim Virtual Terminal and Payment Gateway. It is a simple and secure way of accepting credit card payments online. By being hosted on our own secure server, it removes the liability of having to capture sensitive credit card information directly in your own website. It can be used in a number of ways:
- As part of your shopping cart's checkout
- As part of a billing system integration
- As a simple "Pay Now" button on your website
- As a link at the bottom of emails for customers to pay for their invoices
- And much more!
Customizing the Look and Feel
The payment page uses HTML and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to create unique visual templates. You can fully customize the look to match your website and colors. Visit the Customizing the CSS - Getting Started page for more information.
Customizing the Required Information
The payment page can be as simple as asking for credit card information, or can be made to display items purchased, require for billing and shipping information, and more. You can customize the shown and requested fields, and even create your own unique fields as well.
