Introduction
The Payler Merchant API allows you to perform a standard set of e-commerce operations, operations of funds transfer from a merchant account to a client card according to one of the selected interaction schemes:
  1. 1.
    Provided that you enter bank card data on the merchant’s page (Merchant scheme);
  2. 2.
    Provided that you enter bank card information on the Payler Gateway page (Gate scheme).
Using the Merchant scheme requires the merchant to comply with the requirements of the PCI DSS standard.

PCI DSS

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a payment card industry data security standard developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Board established by the IGC of Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, and Discover.
PCI DSS aims to protect customer data from unauthorized access and reduce the risk of fraudulent transactions when processing online payments.
The standard establishes requirements and recommendations that all trade and service enterprises (merchants) must follow when working with confidential payment data.
Before the merchant system starts processing sensitive data, it is necessary to determine the exact requirements that a particular solution must meet. Requirements are primarily determined based on information about the projected volume of transactions that will be processed by the system over a 12-month period.
Completion of a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) is usually part of the requirements.

For additional advice on interaction within the framework of one or another of the proposed schemes, you can contact the Payler technical support service.

Types of operations

Payment

Operation of funds transfer from the user's card account to the merchant's account.
  • One-stage payment—after authorization, payment amount is blocked on cardholder's account and automatically debited after 24 hours. This type of payment is set by default for all merchants integrated in the system.
  • Two-stage payment—after authorization, payment amount is blocked on the cardholder's account, but writing off happens only after operation approval by the merchant. This payment type is set by merchant request.

Transfer

Operation of funds transfer from the merchant's account to the user's card one.
