What is the Cashflows Gateway?

To enable you to connect your payment processing system with the Cashflows Gateway, we offer our Gateway API. By using our Gateway API, you can integrate with all of the functionality that comes with our gateway for processing online payments. We take care of many of the technical complexities. This can save you time and money.

Key features

With our gateway API you can send us requests for:

  • Creating payments and taking mail or telephone (MOTO) payments,

  • Automating day-to-day tasks, such as processing refunds and cancellations.

  • Securely storing card details for a shopper’s online account or for when they return to your website for future purchases

  • Retrieving the full range of available payment methods that our gateway offers. This includes the logos and icons to display. If we add a payment method to the gateway, you can automatically offer it on a website checkout page without any extra development effort.

The benefits of using our Gateway

Benefits include:

  • More ways to pay
    Our gateway API enables acceptance of major card types, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. We’re continually working to add new payment types to our gateway. The wider the range of payment methods that you can offer, the more business your website is likely to attract. Shoppers can pay the way they want to. As we add more payment options to the gateway, they automatically become available to you via a single API call. No hard coding. No extra development effort needed.

  • Accepting payments in other currencies
    Our gateway supports a range of currencies as well as Pound Sterling - GBP.

  • Standards
    Our gateway API is REST-based and uses recognisable methods. This makes it easy to learn and use.

  • Security
    Our gateway ensures extensive validation and conversion for each transaction request. It also offers, as standard, an extra security layer with built-in 3-D Secure authentication and authorisation checks. Our gateway includes 3-D Secure services (up to version 2.2) from Visa (Verified by Visa) and Mastercard (SecureCode).

  • Modern integration
    Our Cashflows Gateway uses the latest integration practices to provide security and flexibility. You can use the same Gateway API to implement a payment page that we host for you.

  • Integration environment for testing
    We have an API integration environment that you can use for testing. This does not affect any live data or interact with any external finance networks, for example banks.
