Worldpay Online Payments is a fast and reliable payment service from the UK's number one provider.
Based around an API, it enables you to take payments quickly and securely from your own website or app, without a customer's card details ever hitting your servers. This helps you to comply with mandatory card-industry standards (PCI compliance).
Once you've chosen Worldpay Online Payments, you'll find it's fast to implement, doesn’t require an army of engineers to maintain and doesn’t carry upfront costs. Our dashboard is easy to use and allows you to see your orders at a glance, in real time. It's also easy to export data for reporting purposes.
Backed up by the high-capacity gateways that Worldpay has operated globally for over a decade, this service offers unmatched security and reliability. Our support helplines are UK-based, and we also have a team of technical support engineers to assist developers. Some of these people wrote the code themselves, so they know better than anyone how it works. Libraries for most languages are available in our documentation, with more on the way.
Our global levels of expertise and experience in providing payment services offers you the reassurances of scale, security and stability, along with best-in-class technical support.
Worldpay's technical support team are available Monday to Friday 8am-8pm, and Saturdays 9am-5pm, to help with any queries you may have.
For technical support, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 0330 333 0358 during opening hours. We're only available 24/7 for critical system failures.
For general customer support queries, email email@example.com or call us on 0330 333 0357. Please quote your email address and the company name on your account.
Please note that for security reasons Worldpay can offer support only to the person or people named on your account as company contacts. To add more names to the account, the main contact will need to email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

There are two ways to pay for Worldpay Online Payments - via a flat fee of 2.75% + 20p per transaction, or through a monthly payment plan. See Pricing for more details.
If you are a Financial Services organisation with merchant category code of 6012, then VISA requires the collection of some additional information.
To help detect and prevent fraud, money laundering and other criminal activity, the VISA card scheme requires providers of certain financial services to collect details about the recipient of the funds. This only necessary if your merchant category is 6012 - Financial Institution and you are a UK-registered merchant.
If this applies to your account, then for every transaction involving a UK-issued VISA card you must collect :
- Recipient's Bank Account Number OR first 6 and last 4 digits of the card number (PAN)
- First segment of the recipient's postcode e.g. EC4N, KT1, B2
- Recipient's surname
- Recipient's Date of Birth
Providing incorrect values can result in refusal of the transaction.
Note that 6012 merchants are not required to collect these details for orders using non-UK-issued VISA cards, or for other card schemes and payment methods.

With some Antivirus solutions such as Kaspersky, it may ask you if you would like to open the payment frame within the same or new window.
