Easy Digital Downloads Extensions
The past year 2012 was a pretty good year for me, I made 29 extensions for Jigoshop and WooCommerce and still going strong. Extension ideas are coming daily and I am working hard on developing some of those. However, in the beginning of 2013 I decided to start developing for another very nice and very useful shopping cart platform, Easy Digital Downloads. EDD specializes in selling digital goods and it does it very well. It has lots of features for selling your products plus there is huge library of plugins you can choose to even further extend the functionality of your store.
Well as of this year, expect from me a few extensions built for this beautiful shopping cart. And as I should not just talk that I will do it, but I should be doing it, here are the first extensions I developed for EDD.
iPay88 Payment Gateway
iPay88 is a Malaysian payments provider. It is one of the biggest and most trusted payment providers in South East Asia and provides loads of services to its customers. Choosing iPay88 you will have the option of accepting many different alternative payment methods like PayPal, AliPay, Bank Islam, Mobile Money, DragonPay, BancNet and many more. iPay88 also provides its customers the ability to accept payments in more than 13 different currencies like Malaysian Ringgit(MYR), US Dollar (USD), Yuan Renminbi (CNY), Euro (EUR), Pound Sterling (GBP), which makes it one of the very few to provide such service to the South East Asia customers.
The iPay88 Gateway will provide you with an easy way to integrate your EDD store with iPay88 payment services. It is developed as plug and pay solution. Just install the plugin enter your iPay88 credentials and you are ready to accept payment. It can’t get easier than that.
Wirecard Payment Gateway
Wirecard is a European payment provider based in Austria. It provides alternative payment methods as well as credit and debit card payments to its customers, at a low monthly fee of only € 9.90. Some of the alternative payment methods are MasterCard, Visa, JCB, Diners Club, Discover, Maestro SecureCode, giropay, iDEAL, Electronic Fund Transfer, PayPal, Mobile Payment, CLICK2PAY and many more.
What you need to start accepting payments is an Acceptance Agreement from the alternative financial institution and your Wirecard credentials. If you don’t have AA than, Wirecard can kindly assist you on attaining one. Wirecard integration is a redirect one, so the payment happens on the Wirecard secure servers, which relieves you from the requirement of an SSL certificate installed on your server.
PayTrace Payment Gateway
PayTrace was founded in 2004 and is an industry leader for providing a safe, easy to use payments processing services. PayTrace is PCI certified. It has excellent customer service while increasing security and reducing costs to its customers. PayTrace processes payments in US currency processing eCheck/ACH payments and also Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB credit cards.
PayTrace extension integrates eCheck and credit card payments into your EDD store. Integration is made very simple and easy to follow. All you need is your PayTrace Gateway credentials and you are well on your way of accepting payments.
Note: SSL Certificate is required in order to protect you customer sensitive information.
Realex Payments Gateway
Realex Payments is a leading European online payment gateway, and the Ireland’s leading online payment provider. Realex provides a low cost business start up plans starting at just € 29/month. You will have the benefit of a great customer service with a very high PCI complaint security, they will have you taking payments in no time.
The Realex – Redirect gateway uses the redirect customer experience. Your customers will be redirected to the Realex secure website where the payment will take place. After payment completion the customer will be returned back to your website and presented with a “Completion of payment” page. Because the payment happens on the Realex secure payment servers, you do not need SSL certificate to be able to accept payment.
Four gateways developed for Easy Digital Downloads is a good start of the year. If you have any questions about the gateways, their integration or may be something else is on your mind, just let me know in the comments below.
