The FluidPay payment gateway: a high-risk software spotlight –
At Tasker Payment Gateways, we help high-risk business owners with high-risk friendly payment gateways, merchant account recommendations, and software tips. Recently, a CBD site owner got in touch with us to ask about the FluidPay gateway. In order to help as many of you as possible, we decided to create a brief overview of FluidPay and just as importantly, the high-risk friendly carts it can be integrated with.
Right off the bat, we can see that FluidPay offers plenty of useful features and is compatible with a wide range of great shopping carts and platforms. The best news? You can use FluidPay to process credit cards on your online CBD, vape, or pipes and glassware store. As it’s compatible with so many different site builders and shopping carts, we’ll divide the integration types into three categories: emulator compatibility, direct integration, and plugins.
If you’re ready to discuss whether FluidPay is the gateway for you and your high-risk e-commerce business, please contact us here. We’re more than happy to give you some expert advice and help you start accepting high-risk payments. We can also recommend the platforms, carts, and merchant accounts that will suit you best.
The features FluidPay has to offer
The FluidPay gateway provides a great range of features that are useful for any e-commerce site owner. This includes:
- Dashboard Analytics
- Batch Processing
- Recurring Billing
- Private Labeling
- EMV & Mobile
This is only part of what you get with FluidPay. We won’t discuss all of the available features here. For a full overview, you can see the FluidPay products here.
The platforms that have a FluidPay plugin
FluidPay integrates smoothly with Magento 2 through a simple plugin. Additionally, when you use FluidPay for Magento, you can also use an Authorize.Net AIM emulator.
FluidPay software and shopping cart emulator compatibilities
You can use a FluidPay AIM emulator in order to combine various software and platforms. One popular solution is the e-commerce software provider, CS-Cart. It supports the Authorize.Net AIM, allowing you to use CS-Cart and FluidPay together. You can find the post URLs located in the app/payments/authorizenet_aim.php on line 143.
Similarly, you can use a free, out of the box, direct Authorize.Net AIM integration with Zen Cart. The URL’s are all located in zen-cart-v1.5.6a-01042019/includes/modules/payment/authorizenet_aim.php on lines 635 and 636
In the same vein, you can also use the free, open-source e-commerce solution Cubecart with FluidPay by using an emulator. You can download Cubecart here, and download Auth.Net AIM and SIM here. If you need help finding the post URLs, they’re located in Authorize/gateway.class.php. However, please note that the mode must be set to AIM, not SIM.
If you’re unsure whether Cubecart or CS-Cart is for you, don’t hesitate to contact us here. We can assess which option is best for your unique business.
How to use FluidPay on WordPress
There are actually many different ways you can use FluidPay with WordPress. As you might already know, WordPress is an excellent open-source content management system (CMS). This makes them very useful for high-risk e-commerce, once everything is set up right. Additionally, there are many ways you can accept payments when using WordPress. We’ll cover three of these now:
WordPress: Event Espresso
Event Espresso is an event organizer plugin for WordPress. It allows you to create, modify, and manage events from the planning stages to implementation. You can also accept payments by using the FluidPay Authorize.Net AIM emulator.
WordPress: Gravity Forms
Gravity Forms is among the more popular contact form plugins available for WordPress. It offers you more freedom to customize your forms and accept payments. As with Event Espresso, you can use the FluidPay Authorize.Net AIM emulator in order to accept high-risk payments with Gravity Forms.
However, Gravity Forms does not support recurring billing subscriptions.
WordPress and WooCommerce is one of the e-commerce software and platform combinations we often recommend. Both are open-source and compatible with high-risk e-commerce.
