Requirements

 

Setup Instructions
  1. Login to First Data Global Gateway central
  2. Click Support
  3. Click Download Center in the left hand navigation
  4. Click download next to Store PEM File
  5. Follow the instructions, and dowload your PEM file
  6. Upload the pem file to your web site. There are 3 places you can store this file. Choose one of the following locations:
    • Above your web root folder - This is the best place to put the PEM file, because this folder is not accessible via a web browser. For example, if your web pages are inside a folder as follows:

      /home/myacct/www/

      you can put the .PEM file here:

      /home/myacct/123456.pem

    • Inside payment_gateways folder:

      /home/myacct/squirrelcart/payment_gateways/123456.pem

    • Custom path - this can be any path on the server. If you choose to use a custom path, make sure you write it down as you will need it later.
  7. Open the payment gateway record labeled First Data Global Gateway in the control panel of Squirrelcart
  8. Enter your First Data Global Gateway storename in the Store Name field. (This is usually a long number)
  9. If you chose a custom path for your pem file, enter that path in the Certificate Path field (excluding the filename and trailing slash):

    /home/myacct/somefolder


    There is no need to enter anything in the Certificate Path field unless you used a custom path, as described in step 5.
  10. Set Connection Method to Server to Server

  10. In the Order Submission Form section, enter the secure path to your cart page in the Submission Form URL field, with "?pm_redirect=1" immediately following it. For example:

    https://www.example.com/store.php?pm_redirect=1

    This is the same URL you see when you are checking out, and are entering your credit card information - followed by "?pm_redirect=1".

    If this URL does not match the exact URL that the customer is at when they submit the order to First Data Global Gateway followed by "?pm_redirect=1", you will get the error:
    - It is not possible to order from the store at this time.
    - Contact the merchant for further information (error 1002).
  11. In the Confirmation Page section, enter the URL to your storefront. It should be the same URL you entered in step 10 but without "?pm_redirect=1" at the end.

    https://www.example.com/store.php
