This is just a quick announcement to let you know that we have
released ActiveMerchant 1.0.0 and created a new homepage for the
project at http://activemerchant.org. The homepage has links to all
relevant information such as the source code, documentation, mailing
list, gems, etc.
ActiveMerchant currently supports the following gateways:
Authorize.net, eWay, LinkPoint, Moneris, Psigate, PayPal Payflow Pro,
PayPal Website Payments Standard, PayPal Website Payments Pro US,
PayPal Website Payments Pro UK, TrustCommerce, USA ePay, Chronopay,
Nochex, and Banca Sella GestPay
What does it look like?
creditcard = ActiveMerchant::Billing::CreditCard.new(
:type => ‘visa’
:number => ‘4242424242424242’,
:month => 8,
:year => 2009,
:first_name => ‘Bob’,
:last_name => ‘Bobsen’
Create a gateway object to the Authorize.net service
gateway = ActiveMerchant::Billing::AuthorizeNetGateway.new
Authorize for 10 dollars (1000 cents)
response = gateway.authorize(1000, creditcard)
# Capture the money right away gateway.capture(1000, response.authorization)
raise StandardError, response.message
Please note that we have switched the svn repository over to Google
Code and there will no longer be any more updates to the old
repository. We will leave the old repository in place for now, but we
will be taking down sometime in the near future.
In the future we also hope to beef up the documentation, including
some tutorials, so that new users can get started more quickly.
