When using the integration option REST API, merchants want full control over the checkout and payment process and they don’t mind integration efforts and PCI compliance. Requests are constructed by the merchant and are sent over HTTPS protocol to Wirecard’s Payment Gateway end-point where the REST API is exposed.

Integration is possible by:

  • XML requests sent from merchant’s backend (server-to-server)

  • JSON respectively

  • NVP (for credit card only)

For the integration of Wirecard’s Payment Gateway via REST API, advanced programming skills are required.

PCI certified merchants can use Wirecard’s REST API without any restrictions.

Non PCI certified merchants can use Wirecard’s REST API only with referenced or recurring transactions. For initial transactions they must use a front end solution (e.g. HPP).

Details to integrate Wirecard’s Payment Gateway via REST API are described here.
