Businesses who:

  • Want to access services only available via an API implementation
  • Have enough volume to warrant a higher level of automation
  • Want more control and customization of the buying experience
  • Have an SSL secured order page
  • Have a resource with ASP, C, Java/Cold Fusion, .NET, Perl or PHP
    programming skills
  • You already have a Shopping Cart to process payments
  • You don't have a technical resource with programming skills
  • You or your hosting provider don't provide a secure (SSL) protected order
  • You are or will be using our basic Essentials product offering; APIs are
    only available with Essentials Plus and Advanced product offering
  • Flexibility—with an API, you can take advantage of any CyberSource
    service available with the package you purchase (Tax and line item detail,
    for example)
  • Scalability—an API implementation is best if your business volume
    warrants a high level of order processing automation
  • Control and Customization—create your own customized order page and
    receipt to give you more control over your customer's buying experience
  • Stability—have your server communicate directly with ours for greater
    stability than with a Web browser
  • Security Control—you or your hosting provider control security with an SSL
    secure server
  • Data Access—store order or customer data before sending it to
  • Fulfillment—share order data with a fulfillment house or internal department
  • Easy Order Management—use the online Business Center to review and
    manage all of your orders from any computer with Internet access

Implementing an API client with a CyberSource SDK requires programming
skills in ASP/COM, C, Java/Cold Fusion, .NET, Perl or PHP. You should be
comfortable installing libraries into your existing server environment.
