HSBC Module for OSCommerce with XML API
posted @ 9:11 am in [ osCommerce -PHP -Technology -Web Design ]

I’ve been meaning to write about this one for a while since we did it, but we’ve written a fully XML API compliant OSCOmmerce payment module for the HSBC bank in the UK.

It is based quite heavily around the Protx Direct XML module which uses very similar techniques to POST data to the payment servers in XML, and then to decode the XML response in PHP for the OSCommerce system.

I’d like to improve the features when we have more time and allow refunding and voiding _directly_ from the OSCommerce administrator interface, rather than as current where you have to login the the HSBC interface separately to do this, but that’s all about time which is a precious commodity at the moment 🙂

The module can be downloaded from here and the support forum is here
