Drupal is a great platform for ecommerce. If your business needs a Drupal website that accepts payments, a good payment system to use is CyberSource Secure Acceptance Web/Mobile. This tool allows business to accept payments made online, over the phone, and through mobile devices without ever handling toxic payment data. CyberSource is owned by Visa and integrates quite nicely with Drupal Commerce.

It consists of securely managed payment forms or as a single page payment form for processing transactions. This allows you to decrease your Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) obligations, thereby reducing any risks associated with handling or storing sensitive payment information.

In order to get this up and running on your Drupal website, you simply need to follow a few steps:

  1. Create and configure Secure Acceptance profiles
  2. Configure CybeSource profile with Drupal
  3. See the results!

A Secure Acceptance profile consists of settings that you configure to create a customer checkout experience. In order to create a Secure Acceptance profile, you need to:

1. Log in to Business Center with Merchant ID:

To add a card type and enable the CVN you must:

  1. On the “Profile Settings” page, click Payment Settings. The Payment Settings page appears.
  2. Click Add/Edit Card Types. The Add/Edit Card Types window appears.

To verify data, the security script generates a signature to compare with the signature returned from the Secure Acceptance server. You must have an active security key to activate a profile. A security key expires after 2 years. The security key protects each transaction from data tampering.
