Hosted Payments

What is a Hosted Payment?

Hosted Payments occur when the payment processor directly handles the payment method details and provides the end result to the client’s service implementation. This provides you an additional layer of security because at no time is the credit card information presented to any other system than the payment processor. This also reduces the amount of data being passed from client software to the payment processor, as only the result of the transaction is communicated to OPS-COM.

Hosted Payments in OPS-COM

Hosted payments are processed outside OperationsCommander through various providers. This allows customers to submit payments for permits, violations and lockers during the checkout process and be redirected to a secure payment page to enter credit/debit card details to allow the payment to be approved. After submitting the payment users are directed back to OPS-COM to see the receipt and approval details.

Currently, we have integrated hosted payment solutions for the following payment providers. Some providers, such as Bambora and Open Edge/Edge Express will support both hosted payments and tokenized recurring payments.

  • Bambora
  • Bambora Checkout
  • Open Edge Hosted Payments
  • Moneris Hosted Paypage
  • Chase Exact Hosted Payments
  • TouchNet Hosted Payments
  • Transact Campus/CashNet Hosted Payments
  • Authorize.Net.

Tokenization is a process of replacing sensitive date with non-sensitive data. This token allows clients to use hosted payment providers to automatically charge credit cards for monthly parking permits without having to store credit card information (traditional gateway approach). It is more secure in the event of a data breach since there is very little possibility that the token can be used fraudulently.

Please note, gathering credentials for your hosted payment setup can take time. Getting all the required information depends on how responsive your payment provider is. This process should be started as soon as possible.

If you are using, or plan to use, Text2ParkMe or are doing direct billing (invoicing) to credit cards you must supply us with the details required for a gateway setup.

You can access a number of wiki articles, in OperationsCommander’s public training wiki, that will explain the details you will need to provide us in order to set up your payment system. A link to our Hosted Payments page can be found here:
