Transaction Type

When you start looking at taking payments, you'll need to think about how your business operates and the kind of products you'll be selling so that you can match this to the way you take payments from customers' cards. Here's some information on card payment types:

  • PAYMENT - This is instant and is the fastest way to get to your customers’ money.
  • DEFERRED - This is a method whereby you can capture payment and authorisation for a specific amount without immediately taking the funds. For example, this payment method works well for those who have longer lead times to dispatch goods who are building bespoke goods. It’s also important to note that there is a finite timeframe for settling a deferred payment; this is usually within 3–6 days.
  • AUTHENTICATE - This is a method where you can take the customer's card details, perform a 3DSecure check (Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode) and process or'authorise' the payment for up to 90 days (30 days for maestro cards) afterwards. It's important to note, however that the customers' card isn't shadowed with this type of payment, which means that the funds are not guaranteed.

Encryption Password

An encryption password are provided when Sage Pay create a test account for you. This data is emailed to the contacts registered on the account. Please email if you need reminding of your passwords.

Your test encryption password is unlikely to be the same as your live encryption password.


You can set the mode of the module to Simulation, Test or Live.
