The PaperCut Payment Gateway Module is an additional component that provides services that allow users to transfer funds from an external source into their personal PaperCut account.
Examples of its use include:
Larger organization such as Universities or Colleges may wish to provide online payment via 3rd services such as those provided by Banks or organizations like PayPal and VeriSign. The payment interface may be provided for internal use (e.g. for student-only use), or opened up for external access to allow parents to make payments via the web. The Payment Gateway module can hook into a number of leading service providers or may be quickly adapted to fit others.
A number of leading higher education organizations use the Payment Gateway module to allow students to transfer small amounts of credit into their print account. At the end of semester/term, this amount is totalled up and added to their fees/loan. The Payment Gateway module can be configured to automatically debit the student management records or an external database system.
Organizations that use a centralized point-of-sale (POS) system to manage cashless payment on campus can benefit from the PaperCut Payment Gateway. These systems provide a database of users and interfaces/API's to withdraw funds from a centralized database. The Payment Gateway module can be configured to use these API's to transfer/withdraw funds from the central database.
The Payment Gateway module supports plug-ins and can quickly be customized to support other 3rd party systems. The customization can be performed by either the PaperCut development team or internally using your own development staff/skills. Contact PaperCut Software for development options and/or API documentation.
The development team aims to make as many module options available as standard under one common price. Some options however may incur additional costs because of the need for custom configuration or development. Some external sources also charge PaperCut "an API access fee". Any API access fees are transparently disclosed and passed on without mark-up.
