Web Payment Systems Manager

Unlike Merchant Gateways, Web Payment Systems require that users make payments through their payment web page.

Work Principles

Once you have registered an account with such a gateway, you enter the account details in Parallels H-Sphere. When clients select a web payment system during signup, Parallels H-Sphere passes account ID, amount payable, and possibly other details to the gateway. The user is then taken to the gateway's web payment page to enter the credit card number and complete the transaction. When Parallels H-Sphere receives a payment notification, it creates the account.

Since Parallels H-Sphere doesn't store credit card numbers of customers using web payment systems, further payments are also made outside Parallels H-Sphere.

Configuration Procedure

To configure a web payment system with Parallels H-Sphere:

  1. Register an online account with this web payment system.
  2. In Parallels H-Sphere admin control panel, select Merchant Gateways in the Settings -> Payment Settings menu:

  3. Select the payment system from the drop-down menu and click Edit:

  4. Enter your account settings (for instructions, follow links in the blue box on the right).
  5. Once you enter correct settings, the web payment system will appear in the list as active:

Deactivating a payment system disables it for new signups and existing accounts. Although the gateway settings will be preserved, users won't be able to make payments from Parallels H-Sphere. You can also deactivate payment systems from their configuration pages.

Setting Web Payment Instant Notification URL

Some Web payment systems, like PayPal, WorldPay and GestPay require setting the so-called instant notification URL used by your Web payment system to report Parallels H-Sphere about received customer payments.

Parallels H-Sphere instant notification URL has uniform format for all supported Web payment systems:

The URL structure is: CP_PROTOCOL://CP_HOST:CP_PORT/psoft/servlet/psoft.hsphere.PaymentServletName.payment

For example, for PayPal instant notification URL will look like:


For WorldPay instant notification URL will look like:


For GestPay instant notification URL will look like:
