PostFinance integration

logo PostFinance

Introduction

PostFinance is the financial department of Swiss Post.

It involves redirecting the cardholder to PostFinance to finalize its transaction.

info

Upon receipt of EXECCODE = 0002 in the synchronous response, you must redirect the cardholder to the PostFinance form by displaying the content of the REDIRECTHTML parameter. (Base64 encoded)

After validating the payment on PostFinance, the cardholder is redirected to the REDIRECT_URL.

The result of the transaction will also be transmitted by HTTP notification. (See the specifics of the notification)

Compatible operations and options
