What Woo Say
“The VCS Direct extension for WooCommerce adds support for accepting payments using the South African payment processing platform, Virtual Card Services via their “Host-to-Host XML” interfacing specification. This means you won’t have to redirect to the VCS site to process payments, but can process payments directly from your website. VCS allows customers to pay for their purchase via Visa or Mastercard credit cards. Note that VCS does not support 3D-Secure when processing cards in this way.
A Virtual Card Services merchant account and terminal ID
An SSL certificate from your website host
Your account must have a Merchant PAM with the hash feature activated (ask VCS for this)
A WooCommerce store with the base country set as “South Africa” and the base currency set as “South African Rand ( R )”.”
