A Breakdown Of The Magento-BlueSnap Gateway Integration

Written by: Scott Ring

Powerful functionality… check.
Easy setup… check.
Easy management… check.

All of the above are probably high on the list of reasons you chose the Magento platform for your ecommerce business. So it only makes sense that the payment gateway you choose to go along with it should have similar qualities.

At BlueSnap, we’re all about making merchants’ lives easier, but we’re also serious about providing the necessary tools to enable business growth. If you’re searching for a high-performing Magento gateway that partners seamlessly with your ecommerce platform, take a look at BlueSnap’s all-in-one payment solution. Together, Magento and BlueSnap act as one powerful engine to fuel more sales.

How does BlueSnap’s Magento payment gateway work?  

Let’s start with the basics. Our payment gateway for Magento allows you to process payments by providing you with:

  • A payment gateway and a merchant account for easy onboarding. We enable sales by capturing the payment details for customer transactions and securing bank authorizations (the payment gateway part). We’ll also set you up with a merchant account, a necessary component for processing customer credit and debit payments. Not all payment gateways provide merchant accounts, which makes the setup process more of a hassle!
  • Payment processing for credit and debit transactions. We support all major credit and debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, Carte Blue, and JCB. Plus, our secure checkout form is displayed directly on your checkout page (like the one from Corporate Gift.com shown below), so shoppers never have to leave your store to complete a transaction.
  • Secure data management. By using BlueSnap’s hosted payment fields, customer data never reaches your servers—it’s stored securely on our server, which reduces your PCI scope to the simplest level of compliance.
