How To Setup Barclaycard ePDQ As A Payment Gateway

Barclaycard Payment Acceptance are one of Europe’s largest acquirers and possessors of card transactions, with over 45 year’s experience and millions of customers worldwide.

They enable credit, debit and charge card acceptance for UK based companies, ranging from small shops to multinational businesses; online, telephone and mail order payments are supported on a local and international basis throughout Europe.

Barclaycard’s offering of secure online solutions are done via Barclaycard ePDQ. This has varying levels of sophistication across three options but enables customers to start accepting payments online in a secure and simple manner for the merchant and customer alike.

How does it work with Create?

Create's shopping cart solution is already integrated with Barclaycard ePDQ Essential which means no website coding is necessary to get started.

Using Barclaycard ePDQ Essential ensures your customers are sent to a securely hosted payment page when they are ready to complete their purchase and enter their card details.

Create's checkout and Barclaycard ePDQ Essential work seamlessly together to brand your Barclaycard processing pages so they keep your website's look and feel.
