Integrating Barclaycard SmartPay into your website
You can choose from a hosted payment page version, which means we take care of the payment security, and an API version that allows you to directly integrate Barclaycard SmartPay into your own payment pages.
With the hosted payment page version, Barclaycard SmartPay will host the payment pages and manage security and fraud for you. Although you retain control, all the testing and customisation is done through our systems.
With the API version, you create your own payment pages that collect shoppers’ payment details which you then send to Barclaycard SmartPay to process. Unlike the hosted solution, you will be responsible for the security of the customer and payment data. You will need to set up SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security and be compliant with the necessary industry standards for fraud and security.
In either case, our technical support team is available to support you during the integration process.

Barclaycard SmartPay enables you to take payments throughout Europe – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
