Virtual Merchant (Converge) Gateway Processor



This gateway add-on allows you to process credit card transactions through the Virtual Merchant (Converge) gateway from Elavon and its associated resellers. This module supports Credit card charges, one time and recurring as well as refunds through the WHMCS admin interface.

All transactions are handled by WHMCS using this gateway and customers will not have to leave your website in order to complete transactions.

AVS and CVV processing are optional and selectable through the configuration page of the gateway using the WHMCS administration interface.

Setting up HTTP referrers in the Administration website tells Converge to only accept transactions from a pre-approved list of websites. This action helps to prevent fraudulent users from submitting transactions from their websites, claiming to be you. If you want to use this feature you may do so by filling the Http Referrer field in the module configuration page.

This module has a test mode to run transactions against a “Sand Box” account from Converge. A test mode in live environment is also provided as optional. When set to true, transactions will not be forwarded to the credit card processor, but instead will always return an APPROVED result. This is a nice feature to test and configure your system.

This add on is encoded with Ion cube and needs a license to operate correctly. License error messages will not be displayed in the customer area but just in the gateway log available in the administration area. All transaction results are properly logged and can be inspected on the gateway log page of WHMCS administration area.
