XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a set of rules for encoding documents electronically and is a universal way of exchanging documents and data across applications and platforms. It is used by WorldPay to send pre-defined messages containing technical information about a payment between our own payment service and a merchantís system.
Our payments service allows merchants who use the XML Hosted Payment Page (XML Redirect) model to:
- submit orders with payment details
- send a modification for the order
- perform an inquiry to request the payment status of the order
What is the Hosted Payment Page (XML Redirect) Service?
The Hosted Payment Page (also known as XML Redirect) service is an integration method to our payment service, suited for Internet shop environments, call centres or reservation centres, and multi-channel sales situations. It has been developed specifically for merchants who do not want to collect or store shopper payment details using their own system. It does this by redirecting shoppers from the merchant's web shop to the WorldPay payment pages, a secure environment where details can be entered to initiate a payment.
Our Hosted Payment Page service provides a secure and low cost solution for merchants. It allows for real-time processing of payments and provides WorldPay with the required information to perform active fraud risk assessment. It also offers the maximum number of up-to-date payment methods (some payment methods are unavailable using other connection types) and is the fastest way to get up and running with on-line payments.
