Payment Process

Explanation of the payment process

When initiating a payment, the process is generally as follows:

  1. The consumer proceeds to the checkout in the merchant’s webshop.
  2. The consumer selects a payment method and enters additional information if applicable (such as their consumer bank in the case of iDEAL).
  3. The merchant performs a Checkout request to the ICEPAY webservice.
  4. ICEPAY returns a RedirectURL in the response.
  5. The merchant redirects the consumer to the provided RedirectURL.
  6. After paying, the consumer is returned to the merchant webshop at the URL provided in the Checkout request.
  7. ICEPAY sends a Postback with the current status of the payment to the merchant’s webshop.
