This is a quick for-developers-only guide of how to get your PHP/JS code (Windows) talking to PayTrace’s API. I chose the Client Side Encryption as being our first time out, I wanted the least amount of strictness in PCI compliance. This guide assumes you know PHP, JS, JQuery, a little of what an API does, enough to paste some JSON together and of course your HTML, CSS, etc. You’re a developer, you have all the code provided open source, but this is a quick A-B-C of what code I used and how I got it working on Windows (IIS7) and hurdles I ran into.
All code here is readily available on GitHub, but if you’d like my version of it, download it on my Gist.
