Title: How to Accept & store Credit Cards without a processor (manual processing)
Post by: dandan on April 24, 2008, 22:26:45 pm
In the new VM 1.1 stable:

Does anyone know how to accept Credit Card info and just have it stored in admin section? So the admin can later process it manually?

Please help?

I tried adding a new payemnt method called Credit Card, made it active, made my own code called MP, used ps_payment as the class, chose credit card as method type and accepted visa, mastercard, and no config, and I got the Error: The Credit Card Number entered is not valid.

Any ideas? for it to go through and save the card?

I have prepared this full description of the process, as I'm sure others will be wanting to do this, too.

In VirtueMart Admin/Configuration/Security/Security Settings

1. Set up your site SECUREURL with the https url required by your SSL security certificate, either your own site certificate or a shared certificate provided by your webhost.

2. Select "Shop areas which must use https" - usually a minimum of account & checkout

3. Select "Generally prevent https connections?" - this does not seem to work on all servers, but it is no problem if left on.

4. Select "Encryption Function" which would usually be AES_ENCRYPT.

5. Enter/edit "Encryption Key" - this will have been pre-populated for use.

6. Select "Store Credit Card Information?"

Then save configuration.

Go to Store/List Payment Methods

1. On Payment Method List page select New to create a blank Payment Method Form

2. Enter a "Payment Method Name:" - this will appear in the checkout as the payment method.

3. Enter a suitable "Code:" so that you will recognise this payment method in the Payment Method List.

4. Select ps_payment as the "Payment class name".

5. For "Payment method type:" select Credit Card.

6. Select the "Accepted Credit Card Types" - these will be the types of card your card processing service can accept.

Save the page. This now appears in the Payment Method List.

Now make a test purchase and entering a valid test card number. There are test numbers listed on http://www.infomerchant.net/creditcardprocessing/credit_card_test_numbers.html

The last 4 digits of the card number is shown on the order email sent to the store admin, the first part of the number, less those last digits is shown on the order details page in the website backend.

Note that you will need to inform your credit card merchant service or bank that you are accepting on-line payments - check your contract. This is a legal requirement in almost all countries, and you will need to pass PCI scans of the server and site. Large fines can be the result of not informing your card merchant service provider and even worse if you have card data stolen.

Thanks for this Jenkinhill. Very clear instruction. However, I have a problem that you might be able to answer. I have space on a shared ssl server at a different server url . If I point the secureurl in the VM config at this it doesn't know what to do with it. Do I need to put some files in this space?

It is valid as long as you have permission from your card merchant service.  ;)

Done more simply - very simply!

I couldnt get the Jenkinhill technique to work for me (appreciate the effort tho!)

I couldnt even see most of what was described in the first part (we are using VirtueMart 1.0.14 and Joomla! 1.0.15)

BUT whilst searching around I found that the system will provide the credit card info in 2 parts.

SEND me part 1 in the ORDER email :

Name On Card: Firstname Surname
Credit Card Number: ************1234
Expiration Date: 10 / 2008
CVV code: 256

then ONLINE in ORDERS (in the Admin section) VM provides the remainder of the required info:[/b]
Credit Cards     Firstname Surname   123412341234****
(CVV Code: 256)    Oct-2008

therefore all the information is there to process the transaction manually.

--------------------------
the only Payment Method Form mods I made were:

in Payment Methods = made it active
Payment Method Name: = Credit Cards
Code: = yep (made one up)
Payment method type: =  Credit Card
Accepted Credit Card Types:  = selected Visa & Mastercard only
Shopper Group:  default

---------------------------

that's it!  Cheers Steve


** lastly were is that CODE that we make up - output / used or shown (cos I dont see it!)

Thanks guys, I have tried the above method however as soon as I changed the payment method over I lost the Credit Card Drop Down Menu (which allows the customer to select the credit card type, Visa Mastercard, etc...)

Any thoughts on why and more importantly how to get it back...???

this is great and works well for me apart from one thing.  usually i print it where i am (work or home) and take it to work. 

but today I left the information at home . i can get the websites details but cannot access the email that was sent to me as it's on the home computer and would like to send the item out today.

I can access my email on-line so is there a way to resend the email by logging into vituemart and clicking somewhere.  I guess there's nowhere on virtuemart to get these details as that's part of the security.

Correct. There is a code hack to unmask the card details, but that would be very risky - and not acceptable to card processing companies.

Post by: mrfoameruk on June 27, 2009, 09:30:29 am
this only stores the details for the credit card. you have to process it manually yourself later on. usually on a terminal that you would have in your shop (the one that you would be using to do your normal credit card transactions)

By the way has anyone tried the ukcard from above and set it up? did it work for you?

there's a reason this data is kept like this. security. if someone get this information than as it's the order everything, address, post code, ccv, is left to be abused.  would the site owner like his credit card detail thrown around the internet unsecured?  i stopped using this method as in England it is near enough from what i've read from my banks against all rules (mostly to do with the ccv number on the back).  from what i read if anyone got information from your site/emails etc. and bought say a Mercedes car than the person/site who leaked the information would have to pay the bill, something i just wasn't going to risk.  I'd guess they'd have to somehow prove it was your site but i now get the customer to phone with their details or use paypal. looking for a online credit card company but so far haven't found one that uk and works.

Hey guys. I have tried this (and granted, I am still testing on a temp URL) and I get an error " Error: Credit Card Type not found." while using the test numbers provided above. Not sure why, I have followed the instructions to the T. VM 1.1.3 stable. There weren't any exp dates on that test page, are there supposed to be or does it even matter since there's no instant validation with manual processing?

Any ideas?

Hi All, I have posted my query as a topic itself but no replies yet.  Does anyone out there have a solution my problem or suggestions.???

I could really use help, I've used virtuemart for the past couple of months.  Every other problem I have encountered I've found a solution through the forum or manuals but now STUCK.

My client is processing orders manually so I was able to set-up Visa and MasterCard no problem using
- payment-method-type: credit card
- code: AN
- payment-class-name: ps_payment

However in Ireland we also have a card called Laser which is a debit card with no CVV number.

I need the system to require a CVV for Visa/Mastercard but NO CVV for Laser Card.  Using a payment processor there is a option to choose if CVV is required but I can't find if this is possible for credit card.

Any ideas please.  I'm so close to finishing this project.  So I'm looking to set-up a manual card payment with no CVV required.

Thank you in advance...

Having worked in the credit card industry for overe 12 years, I am slightly stunned that PCI compliance has not been top of anyones list of things to be aware of.

Make sure you comply or you are likely to be hit by fraud and then have all the chargeback rights bounced onto you!  The lowest level of security in the chain ends up losing out and the chargeback teams I have come across, love PAN keyed transactions!!

Probably a badly configured SSL cert/server setup. Check with your hosts, and better ask them right now if the site on their server will be PCI compliant.

Still works, but if you are using Joomla 1.5.18 then you won't get PCI clearance to store numbers as it has known security risks, as does unpatched VM1.1.6

It is vital to have your server/software validated, as PCI is an absolute requirement for most card merchant services.

I have checked & completed everything exactly as setout by jenkinhill at the start of this topic and my order checkout completion proceeds correctly.  Both the purchaser & vendor emails show only the last 4 digits with the first 12 hidden, the expiry date & CVV code, as expected.  However when I go to the backend to check the order, the order shows ALL of the 16 digits in the account number, the CVV code and expiry date.  I was expecting to see the last 4 digits hidden and to have to put the numbers together via the order and the email msg.  I am concerned this may breach compliance.  Why would this be happening and how do I correct this?

Post by: wendyP on May 17, 2011, 05:56:21 am
OK found my problem... at the same time I was configuring this, my client also had another 'helper' on the case, who had hacked one of the admin files to show all 16 digits in the backend.  The client was unaware that this had been done and was alarmed as she realised she was not in compliance with her merchant.  It has now been returned to original files....  Phew I was tearing my hair out there.

At least I now know what hack to do - even if I wont' be using it, I have learned something.

Showing full card details in e-mails is ridiculous, from a fraud perspective!!!

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global security standard set by the PCI Security Standards Council.  It applies to organisations that store, process or transmit cardholder information from any of the globally recognised card schemes, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Post by: 911websiterepair on July 15, 2011, 20:45:34 pm
our add orders as an admin for a customer does this from the backend only,   and it hides the first 12 credit card numbers as needed,    we would have to make it work from the frontend,   still risky with compliance,  but you guys can have what ever you want.

so, in the backend you can take the order and the cc info and save it for later processing.

how much are you guys willing to pay to have this done,      email me at 911websiterepair.com or support@joomlacache.com          i will see about doing it within your budgets.  it should not be difficult to make it work in the front end.

Problem is that in many countries it is extremely difficult to get PCI clearance if you store credit card details on a webserver unless you are a major player like Amazon or Sony  ;)
And it is also prohibited to store the CVV with the card number.

To ensure PCI compliance of VirtueMart it is now preferable for the developers not to include card storage. This does not prevent the individual user of having the option to program or purchase an addon to do it, so they can use a PDQ or Customer Not Present terminal, but that is at their own risk.

Hi Kelvyn

Thanks for that, thats exactly what I want to do, I don't see the risk if it is on an SSL, are you talking more about the merchant finding out and banning you? This would be a problem

As part of the contract with the merchant service you are required to undergo PCI checks, and they must be informed if you are storing card data a server. You run the risk of big financial penalties if you get hacked or similar.

Useful information on http://www.homeofficesmallbusiness.com/finance/storing-credit-card-information-online and https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/

SSL is only related to how you connect to a server, nothing to do with the security of data stored on a server.

Is anyone have a resolution?

I'm so sorry. Showing  paypal add to cart button is part of paypal integration. Which I think it makes it allowable to discuss here. Nonetheless, I'll post it in a new thread.

Thanks,
Bernard

Mod edit: the title of this thread is How to Accept & store Credit Cards without a processor (manual processing) - nothing to do with PayPal.

your posting in the wrong thread


you need to get an SSL certificate for your site, to secure the cart


you usually have to pay a separate fee for this, and if possible, you should get a static IP to go with it.

once you have the IP and the SSL it is simple enough to set up. I always recommend a dedicated SSL. It is much better that the free shared ones web host have.

a dedicated could run you about 125.00 or so with the IP for one year.

hard to believe your host does not have this,    what host are you using.

Post by: 911websiterepair on November 15, 2011, 19:36:34 pm
you need to contact your host and see if they can upgrade it for you

or, as some host will not do this,  you may need to find a better host

Hello All. I am currently running VM 1.1.9 and Joomla 1.5.24 and I have everything working but one small glitch and I am curious if there is a fix for it. When I receive an order with this method nowhere does it display the card type in the email or back end order. I believe I will need this to process orders. How can I get it to show?

Hello,

There is an issue on my website that only occurs in IE8. Error message "Error: Credit Card Number not found" appears after user confirms the order. Order has not been placed.

There is no any validation of credit card, the orders are processed manually.

Please help!
