Has anyone setup the New Zealand "paypal" equiverlant website, to work with SS?

Going to try set it up for a website I'm running the e-commerce module on but thought I should ask first if someone else had already done this seeing as its a NZ merchant.

Hi Brad
I have integrated the payment Module from - another NZ based credit card payment facility
They provide an excellent reliable service and it takes minutes to set up an account with Paymex
It is very easy to integrate into the E-commerce module (one PaymexPayment.php in the code directory file plus additions to _config.php) and good documentation.

Its a Sub-class of Payment that supports the Paymex Start-Up account as its payment processor
* The Start-Up account allows us to redirect the customer to a secure payment page, and be returned back to Paymex
* upon success.
Original version written by Paymex Limited with support from Jack Pivac (Delphinus) July 2008

You can download the code from

So give it a try!

Regards Karl

If you're still interested in Paymate I have a payment method in development for this and would appreciate any testing.
It's not an overly complicated method and you should be able to use it in production as is, just needs more work on handling the response.

Let me know if you want me to send it.

Greetings Richard
I'd be keen to assist with testing this code out - can you want to post a zip file up and I can test this

Great thanks for that.

What versions of SS and ecommerce are you running? Same goes for anyone else interested ...

The last stable build of ecommerce (0.5.2) doesn't really work with SS 2.3+ and there are some huge changes between 0.5.2 and the current trunk version (which works better with SS v2.3).

Because of this, I am re-coding the Paymate payment class to work on the current trunk version of ecommerce and am mostly there, just have to get my head around (intelligently) dealing with payment records and receipt emails.

Should have a working version by the end of the week and will post it then.

How is that paymate payment method going? I was about to start writing one myself, until I saw this thread.

In the end I didn't need to implement credit card payments on the site... so never tried to get this working... But if you get something make sure ya post it up =D

Ok fair enough. Do you have any half-finished code?
