Neteller

Overview

Note:

Two technical implementations are currently supported for working with the Neteller method: the new one described in this section and the old one described in the section Neteller (legacy).

Details about the difference between these implementations and how to switch from the old implementation to the new one should be clarified with the ECommPay key account manager.

Neteller is a payment method to perform payments by using e-wallets. You can perform purchases through this method by using Payment Page and Gate, payouts by using Gate and Dashboard (Old Dashboard).

Processing scenarios

In the Neteller method, purchases and refunds follow different processing procedures. To perform a purchase operation, you need to redirect customer to the Neteller service, while to initiate a payout, you need to receive a request from the customer via the web service.

The sections that follow provide detailed information about what you need to perform payments and how you can analyse the information on payments and operations.

Purchases by using Payment Page

General information

In the Neteller method, when processing a purchase by using Payment Page, the merchant web service should send a request with all the required parameters and signature to the ECommPay URL and get the callback with the payment result from the payment platform. When opening Payment Page, you can have Payment Page opened with the Neteller method selected. For more information about preselecting payment methods, see in Preselecting payment method. The full sequence and particularities of the purchase process are provided below.



Figure: Purchase by using Payment Page

  1. A customer initiates a purchase on the merchant's web service.
  2. The web service sends the request for Payment Page opening to the specified ECommPay URL.
  3. The request for opening is redirected to the payment platform.
  4. The payment platform performs the initial request processing that involves validation of the required parameters and signature.
  5. Requested Payment Page is generated into the ECommPay payment platform as specified in the project settings and the request parameters.
  6. Payment Page is displayed to the customer.
  7. The customer selects the Neteller method.
  8. The payment platform receives the purchase request for payment processing from Payment Page.
  9. The payment platform performs the internal purchase request processing and sends it to the Neteller service.
  10. The purchase request is processed on the Neteller service side.
  11. The Neteller service generates the data for redirecting the customer to its website form and sends it to the payment platform.
  12. The payment platform sends the customer redirection data to Payment Page.
  13. The customer is redirected to the Neteller website.
  14. The customer completes all the payment steps required.
  15. The payment is processed on the Neteller side.
  16. The customer is redirected to Payment Page.
  17. The Neteller service sends the result notification to the payment platform.
  18. The payment platform sends a callback with the payment result to the web service.
  19. The payment platform sends the result to Payment Page.
  20. A page with the payment result information is displayed to the customer on Payment Page.

The sections that follow discuss in more details the request format and the Payment Page parameters to use in the Neteller payment method and provide the information on the format of callbacks with payment results. For the general information on how to use the API, see Payment Page API Description.

Request format

There are several things you need to consider when using the Neteller method:

  1. You must provide values for the basic minimum of parameters. Listed below are the parameters that are mandatory for any payment method:
    • project_id—the project ID obtained from ECommPay
    • payment_id—payment ID unique within the project
    • payment_currency—payment currency in ISO-4217 alpha-3 format
    • payment_amount—payment amount in minor units
    • customer_id—customer ID unique within the project
  2. It is recommended to specify the user email address associated with the Neteller account in the customer_account_number additional parameter. If the request is missing the parameter, on Payment Page the additional field is displayed to the customer to input missing data. For more details about submission of additional payment information, see Submission of additional payment information.
  3. If you need to have payment form displayed with the Neteller method selected, set the force_payment_method parameter to neteller-wallet.
  4. If required, you can also add any other additional parameters Payment Page supports.
  5. After you specify all the parameters you need, you must create the signature for the request. For instructions on how to sign a payment request, see Signature generation and verification.

Thus, a correct payment request in the Neteller method must include project and payment IDs, the currency and the amount of a payment, customer email address, as well as signature, as shown in the following example:

    { project_id: 123,
      payment_id: 'X03936', 
      payment_amount: 1000, 
      payment_currency: 'EUR',  
      customer_id: 'customer1',
      customer_account_number: 'test@example.com',
      signature: "kUi2x9dKHAVNU0FYldJrxh4yT4DqtVUkDJrOcZzUCwX6R\/ekpZhkIQg=="
    }

For information about all parameters available in the Neteller method , see Payment Page invocation parameters.

Callback format

The Neteller method uses the standard format for callbacks to deliver purchase results. For more information, see Callbacks.

The following is the example of a callback with an information about successful 10.00 EUR purchase in the 210 project.

  14. The Neteller service sends the payment result notification to the payment platform.
  15. The payment platform sends a callback to the web service.
  16. The customer receives the payment result on the web service.

The sections that follow discuss in more details the request format and the Gate parameters to use in the Neteller payment method and provide the information on the format of callbacks with purchase results.

Request format

There are several things you must consider when using purchase requests in the Neteller method:
  1. You send purchase requests by sending the /v2/payment/wallet/neteller/sale request by using the POST HTTP method. This is an e-wallet payments request group: /v2/payment/wallet/{payment_method}/sale.
  2. The following objects and parameters must be specified in any request:
    • Object general—general request identification information:
      • project_id—the project ID obtained from ECommPay
      • payment_id—payment ID unique within the project
      • signature—signature created after you specify all the required parameters. For more information about signature generation, see Signature generation and verification.
    • Object payment—payment information:
      • amount—purchase amount in minor units
      • currency—purchase currency in ISO-4217 alpha-3 format
    • Object customer—customer information:
      • ip_address—customer IP address
      • id—unique ID within the merchant project
    • Object account—customer account information:
      • number—email address associated with the Neteller account. According to the operation protocol of the Neteller service it is required to validate the values that the customers specify on the web service side and allow only those values which correspond to the format of an email address.
  3. If required, you can also add any other additional parameters Gate supports.
  4. After you specify all the parameters you need, you must create the signature for the request. For instructions on how to sign a payment request, see Signature generation and verification.

Thus, a correct payment request in the Neteller method must include project and payment IDs, signature, currency and amount of the purchase, as well as customer information, as shown in the following example:

    "ip_address": "1.1.1.1",
    "id": "customer1"
  },
  "account": {
    "number": "test@example.com"
  }
}

Formats of the customer redirection data

To redirect a customer from the web service to the Neteller site, you must receive a callback from the payment platform containing the URL for redirection in the redirect_data.url parameter and data to be sent in the request body in the redirect_data.body parameter, and use these parameters when opening the HTML page using the method specified in the redirect_data.method parameter.

The following is the callback fragment containing the redirection data.

"redirect_data": {
    "body": {},
    "method": "GET",
    "url": "https://api.test.com/alternatepayments/v1/redirect?example"

Payouts by using Dashboard (Old Dashboard)

To make a payout through Dashboard (Old Dashboard), the merchant sends a request, and receives a notification with the request processing result. There are two ways to initiate payouts through Dashboard (Old Dashboard):
  • as a single payout—in this case, you must specify the currency and amount for a payout available for this method, and fill in all fields required on the Dashboard (Old Dashboard) interface in accordance with the selected payment method
  • as a part of a mass payment—in this case, all parameters are specified in a CSV file in accordance with the requirements in the Payouts by using Gate section (except for the signature)

Information about performed payouts is displayed in the Payments section of Dashboard (Old Dashboard).

More detailed information on the payout processing by using Dashboard (Old Dashboard) is provided in the Bulk payments section.

Also, you can export the information for further analysis by using third party analytical tools. The following options are available:

  • Dashboard allows you to download reports in CSV and XLS formats—by using the tools on the Payments tab. You can perform export as a one-time download to your local computer or have payment data regularly exported and delivered to email addresses you specify.
  • Data API allows you to have payment information exported in JSON format and delivered to a URL you specify. The payment information is exported by using the /operations/get queries.
