· Secret key

Above three are very crucial parts of this API to process the transactions of each order in order to receive by merchants which are securable data to save in Worldpay backoffice configurations. These three are automatically generated data on worldpay from FIPS global during registration of merchants.

Payment process with Hosted API:

2. 3D secure authentication

3. Make card payment

4. Order and payment status

Tokenization or token generation process started when the user clicks on place order at the merchant store, then it requested for tokens from worldpay payment end , then by creating token and confirming the right merchant of the store, it get the user to the worldpay business payment page by redirecting from the online store. This process is only for identifying the merchant of the shop to process the transactions further with responses.

3D Secure Authentication:
This is next step where the users are get verified by worldpay with 3D secure authentication to continue their purchase with credit/debit cards by entering card details at the following stage. # D secure is to identify and make sure about the transaction by sending verification code to the user’s email or mobile number which registered with worldpay enterprise business.

It is used by webhook notification in order to send the instant live payment response notifications to pass on to the retailer ecommerce.

These payment and order statuses created by getting request Id and transaction Id of the payment on the respective with online merchant shop when used payment mode of worldpay enterprise business.

Just enters their card details after choosing worldpay enterprise business as their option with rest API.
