Introduction

Log into the Segpay Merchant Portal to begin setting up your Price Points, Postbacks, and Packages (see the next sections for step-by-step instructions).

 

Be sure to check your system with NATs to see if an update is needed to setup Segpay. If you have an older NATs version, please be sure that your version is updated to match the information contained in this document.

 

To integrate your site with Segpay and NATS, review this article: NATS4 Segpay

 

 

 If you set up Segpay and NATS prior to August 2006, it's extremely important that your POST BACK NOTIFICATION PROFILES are updated, otherwise users won’t be added or deleted correctly, and your transactions will not be updated correctly.

 

What you need:

Contact your Segpay Sales Rep to request the following:

  • Pricing: Provide your Segpay Sales Rep the pricing you want to offer your customers.
  • User Name & Access Key: Email Segpay Tech Support at [email protected] and ask to create a User Name and Access Key for Segpay Reporting Services (SRS).

Follow the instructions in the next sections of this document.


Adding Segpay as a Biller in NATS

 

Follow these steps to add Segpay as a Biller in NATS:

  1. Go to Billers Admin.
  2. Scroll down to the Biller drop-down menu.
  3. Select Segpay.
  4. Click Add.
  5. When prompted, enter your Segpay Merchant ID (MID), and SRS Username & Access Key.

 

If you do not have this as an option, you may need to reach out to NATs for an updated version.

 


Adding Price Points

Price Points are known as “Order ID” in NATs.  Segpay supports Recurring, One-Time, Digital Purchase, and Instant Conversion pricing at a static price.

 

To add a new Price Point:

 

  1. Log into the Merchant Portal: https://mp.segpay.com/
  2. Go to My Websites > Price Points
  3. Click Add Price Points to create a new Price Point.
  4. Type a description in the Description field.
  5. Select a Price Point Type:
  6. Select User Info Settings to collect on Pay Page:
  7. Enter Pricing Information:
  8. Click Save.

 

ℹ  If you're looking for something more flexible for your customers, we offer Dynamic Pricing that supports one-time payments, as well as Dynamic Recurring that supports recurring subscriptions.  Provide your Segpay Sales Rep with your lowest & highest desired price point range to ensure this range is approved by Compliance for integration.  Please note Instant Conversion, Dynamic Pricing, and Dynamic Recurring Price Points require Compliance approval. 

 


Setting Up Postbacks

Please note that Postbacks will need to be configured to your site’s NATs link domain (examples can be seen below). If you're managing your own members, NATs will only require a Disable and a Transaction Postback to be configured on Segpay’s end.   

 

To add a new Postback: may be added in the Segpay Merchant Portal under My Websites --> Manage Postbacks --> Add New Postback.  

 

  1. Log into the Merchant Portal: https://mp.segpay.com/
  2. Go to My Websites > Manage Postbacks

 ℹ Postbacks that are configured with expected Error Responses will be retried upon failure.  To be notified of failed postback notifications, please enter your email where prompted.  You may also enter a username/password if your script is behind a password-protected area.


Creating a Package

Once your Price Points & Postbacks have been created, they will need to be added to a Package, also known as “CC eTicket ID” in NATs.  Once the Price Point(s) have been added to your Package(s), these values will need to be added to your NATS Join Options.  

 

Upon creating a new package, the package status will default to Test Mode.  A Segpay Employee will need to make the final switch from Test Mode to Live Mode when you are ready.  Be sure to click Save once finished.

  2. Go to My Websites > Manage Packages

  4. Type a description
  5. Add URL

Cross-Sells may be added in the Packages menu.  Your list of approved Cross Sells will be listed here.  If you would like to offer a NEW Cross Sale, please provide the Segpay Package ID and Price Point ID to [email protected] so they may work with Compliance to get your Cross Sales approved & tested. 

 

This Cross Sell Configuration may be seen in the Segpay Merchant Portal under My Websites --> Manage Packages --> Edit the package of your choosing --> Select "Cross Sell Configuration" tab once inside the package:

Testing Your Configuration

You are ready to take payments; however, your account is initially in Test Mode, meaning no actual charges are processed yet. Follow the steps below to run a payment in Test Mode before we set your account to Live:   

 


Going Live

After testing, please contact Segpay Technical Support ([email protected]) to have your account set to Live mode. A technical integration specialist will run an additional end-to-end test to ensure everything is working properly, and let you know when you’re ready to start taking payments.  Some things to keep in mind before going Live with NATs: 

 

-    Did you enter the right account information in the Billers Admin?
-    Did you set up all your sites?
-    Did you set up the Segpay Join Options in the Sites Admin?
-    Did you set up a Join Form for each site?
-    Did you set up at least one cascade?
-    Did it cascade correctly on approval/failure?
