Instructions
You can choose which credit card software and merchant services provider you would like to use. Channergy includes support for over 100 providers (see list below) and supports several third party software programs which work with the vast majority of providers. Export reports are included too, so you can use other packages as well.

  1. Channergy supports the following credit card software. If you use one of these now, or if your provider accepts charges from one, Channergy will connect to the gateway and charge the credit card during order entry or batch order processing. It will enter the approval number for you into the order and mark it paid. The supported software packages are:
    1. PC Charge (http://www.pccharge.com/)
    2. IC Verify (http://www.icverify.com/)
    3. Authorize Net (http://www.authorizenet.com) and many other gateways (see list below)
      1. For Authorize Net and other supported gateways you will need the xPayment component which is included with Channergy 2010 and above.
    4. Chase PaymentTech (http://www.chasepaymentech.com/)
      1. For Chase PaymentTech and other supported gateways you will need the xPayment component which is included with Channergy 2010 and above.
    5. XCharge (http://www.xcharge.biz)
  2. First, install and test your credit card software. It must be working before you attempt to process a charge through Channergy.
  3. Next, click Tools on the text menu and select Preferences.

  3. Edit the cardholder name and address if necessary, then click the button.  A Results section will appear at the bottom of the dialog, and a Stop button will be available if you need to cancel the transaction.
  4. Your software will contact  your provider and retrieve the approval information. Within a few seconds an approval code should appear in the Results section. Click the button. The approval code and amount paid will be automatically entered on the Channergy Order screen.

 

Troubleshooting
If you experience problems processing a charge after completing the above the tips below may help.

  1. For PC Charge and IC Verify you must have the same Merchant ID in Channergy as in your credit card software. Some banks provide your ID in a letter with additional digits. Be sure to check the setup in your software.
  2. If you are receiving a “Class not registered” error when attempting to run ICVerify, PC Charge or PC Authorize credit card software you can install credit card support files from the Credit card support files.
  3. If you are receiving a “Invalid class string” and are using xAuthorize as your interface software you need to install the xPayment software here.
  4. If you are using PaymentTech as your gateway and get a “Precondition Failed” error message when trying to process a charge, your IP address has not been whitelisted by PaymentTech.
  5. In PC Charge, if you receive a result message of ” Not Captured” followed by an Authorization Code you may need to close PC Charge, then browse to the PCCW folder and delete the CVVS.PCC and Address.PCC files. Be sure to backup your PC Charge settings first, just in case. You may also need to delete Credit.pcc and Config.pcc.  If you are using PC Charge Payment Server you will need to use the command line switch /UI to start Payment Server up the first time.
  6. Make sure both Channergy and your credit card software programs are running. For networks you may need to run both a server and a client version of your credit card software.
  7. For IC Verify, some providers return a different character in the first position of the approval string (not the approval code you see in the results). If this occurs the charge will appear as approved but will be marked in Channergy as DECLINED. Please contact us for a patch to correct this (we have to modify it for your code). In the meantime, you can manually enter the approval code.
  8. You do not need to create a batch in your credit card software, but you do need to settle the batch created by Channergy. Otherwise, charges will be entered but will not transfer funds into your account.
  9. Some gateways support crediting charges. In order to credit a charge your provider may have limitations such as: 1) Original charge must have been charged by your gateway, 2) The refund amount cannot be more than the original charge 3) The credit must be within 120 days of original charge. Please refer to your terms of agreement with your provider to determine requirements before testing credits through Channergy.
  10. Channergy 2010 and higher includes xAuthorize (aka xPayment) to allow you to integrate with over 100 gateway services. See the list of supported gateways below.
