    Article Summary


    Payment pages give your business an easy and secure way to accept credit cards online, you can use them in several ways including as part of your shopping cart, as a pay now button, or as an integrated part of your billing system.

    What is a Hosted Payment Page?

    The Hosted Payment Page is an easy and secure way of accepting credit card payments online. It can be used in a number of ways - as part of your shopping cart's checkout, as a simple "Pay Now" function of your website, as an integrated part of your billing system and much more! The payment page can be as simple as asking for credit card information, or can require provision of the billing and shipping information. You can select which fields are shown, which fields are required, and can even create your own unique fields such as text, drop-down and checkbox selection menus.

    The payment page uses HTML and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to create unique visual templates. You can easily make basic visual adjustments to match your brand or fully customize the look and feel using your own cascading style sheets. Commerce can provide you or your web designer with all the tools needed to create a custom design that reflects your business.
