Dear VirtueMart community,

Puma-IT is pleased to release the Global Iris (HSBC) payments plugin for VirtueMart 2 & Joomla 2.5.x !

This plugin uses the re-direct method: a hosted application which allows you to redirect customers from your website to a secure payment environment, where the customer can enter his/her card details to complete the payment.

Once the transaction has been processed, Global Iris will return the response of the transaction to a dedicated response page on your server, so that VirtueMart can automatically update the order with the details of the transaction.

This plugin has been successfully tested with Joomla 2.5.8 and VirtueMart 2.0.14.

Note: Global Iris (HSBC) uses the Realex payments platform.

  • Global Iris redirect method
  • RealAuth
  • Auto settlement
  • VirtueMart 2 email notification (depending on your configuration)
Global Iris (HSBC) want to test it from your website before going live anyway, so there is no risk for you.

  • € 39 on subscription basis + Irish VAT@23% for a year, including updates and new features, plus support for one website for one year
  • plugin code licensed under the GNU/GPL v3
  • it can be installed on more than one website, but Puma-IT will only provide support for the one registered with the subscription.
