3. Brand your checkout page

The Checkout Themes editor on Verifone Central allows you to customise the layout and design of your Hosted Payment Page for Pay by Link and HPP Website Integrations.

Add your logo to your payment page and choose from a range of colour and font options to match your brand identity. Build trust with customers and keep your brand top of mind.

NOTE: For Pay by Link, you will select a Checkout Theme each time you create a payment link. For website integrations using the Verifone Hosted Payment Page, you will need to configure which theme to use on the Admin panel of your website.

    4. Set up Webhooks & Email Notifications


    Once you've set up the Verifone Hosted Checkout on your website, setting up Webhooks for your shopping cart plugin Offsite Link will allow you to:

    • ensure that Orders are updated even if the customer abandons the Hosted Payment Page (HPP), and
    • sync Orders with Verifone Central so that any modification done on Verifone Central is reflected on your eCommerce platform (e.g., refunds performed on Verifone Central).

    Email notifications

    Get status updates on certain events/actions for your payment links and/or Verifone Hosted Cart, and automate business processes like order management, accounting, or downloading reports.

    To access the Notifications tool on Verifone Central head to the Administration tab and click Notifications under Advanced Settings.

    5. Set up Blocking Rulesets

    This feature allows you to block certain transactions based on rules you set up. Save on fees for transactions that are not forwarded for further processing. Learn more here Offsite Link
