Softline Checkout Service

Softline Checkout offers you a flexible solution allowing you to connect checkout pages to your online store.

A checkout page allows you to perform a complete purchase order cycle:

  • Add products to the checkout page.
  • Gather customer details.
  • Process payments.
  • Provide receipts.
  • Deliver products to customers electronically.

We use the Merchant of Record model: we sell your goods and services, process your end customers' transactions and take full responsibility for this.

You can quickly start selling by making the necessary settings through the Merchant Portal. Get more power with our APIs.

We use the Merchant of Record model: we sell your goods and services, process your end customers' transactions and take full responsibility for this.

When using this model:

  • Your customers go to your website or use an app to access your products. They get redirected to our end to make a purchase and make a payment.
  • We receive payments for your goods, handle all payments and take on the liability related to each transaction. This includes collecting taxes, ensuring compliance with payment security standards, honoring refunds and chargebacks, etc.

With us acting as a reseller, there are actually two transactions taking place during the sale:

  • Between the end customer and us when your product is purchased.
  • Between us and you when a payout of your sales margin for a reporting period is made.

After a transaction between the end customer and us is complete, we are the entity to which the end customer can turn in case of payment disputes and so on, since we made the sale.

  • (Preliminary stage) You receive checkout links and place them on your website. They allow adding products to a checkout page. There are two ways to get these links:
    • Create all products on our end.
      In this case, a separate permanent checkout link is created per product.
      You can use the Merchant Portal or the Products API.
    • Keep a product catalog on your end.
      In this case, using the Dynamic Product Checkout API, you generate a checkout link when the customer wants to add a product to a checkout page. To add the product, you have to transfer its properties in the request to the API. 
  • The link redirects the customer, and the selected product is added to the checkout page.
  • The customer performs additional actions required for the sale on the checkout page:
    • Checks order items and modifies them if necessary (edits quantity, removes products).
    • Enter required personal data.
    • Selects a payment method.
    • Provides consent to the Sales Terms and Conditions and the Processing of Personal Data, if required.
  • The customer pays for their order.
  • The customer receives the products purchased.
  • You receive a margin payout for a reporting period.

In addition, you can use additional scenarios to sell renewals automatically.

Checkout Pages
