Worldline Sips is a secure multi-channel e-commerce payment solution that complies with the PCI DSS standard. It allows you to accept and manage payment transactions by taking into account business rules related to your activity (payment upon shipping, deferred payment, recurring payment, payment in instalments, etc.).

The purpose of this document is to explain the Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X means of payment integration into Worldline Sips.

This document is intended to help you implement the Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X means of payment on your e-commerce site.

It includes:

  • functional information for you
  • implementation instructions for your technical team

To get an overview of the Worldline Sips solution, we advise you to consult the following documents:

  • Functional presentation
  • Functionality set-up guide

A financial company of the Casino Group, Floa Bank offers the Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X solution, reserved for private persons of legal age holding a credit card valid for at least 3 months after the contract signing date for payment in instalments and the use of which is not subject to a systematic authorisation request (especially Visa Electron and Maestro cards).

With this solution, customers pay for their online purchases in 3 or 4 instalments.

During a Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X payment, customers complete their personal data as well as credit card details upon subscription. This subscription specifies the number of payment due dates, the amount of each payment due date and the dates pertaining to the payment.

Having completed the entry, they are informed online of the request result.

The imprint taken during the payment process can be subject to 3-D Secure authentication.

The customer selects the Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X means of payment.

They are then redirected to the Floa Bank pages.

They fill out a form with their personal information:

The customer can then enter the information relating to their bank card:

The payment ticket is displayed, then the customer returns to your websit. This page can be bypassed.

Tip: for more information about the bypass please refer to the Displaying the ticket by Worldline Sips paragraph of the Functionality set-up guide documentation.

In order to offer the Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X means of payment on your website, you have to sign a contract with Floa Bank. Floa Bank will then transmit this information, which will be directly implemented in your Worldline Sips merchant shop.

At the same time, Floa Bank will sign a distance selling contract with CIC to finalise your registration and give you access to the means of payment.

You can offer the Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X means of payment through the Sips Paypage which directly acts as the payment interface with customers via their web browser.

The remittance modes available for a Floa Bank 3X and/or 4X transaction are:

  • Validation mode: you must validate the transaction to trigger the remittance. A capture delay must also be defined. When this capture delay is reached or exceeded, you will not be able to validate the transaction, which will therefore expire automatically.
  • Immediate mode: the authorisation and remittance are executed online simultaneously.
It should be noted that:
  • only the "IMMEDIATE" mode in the WL Sips merchant request is compatible with the "Automatic" configuration on the FLOA PAY acquisition contract side
  • only the "VALIDATION" mode in the WL Sips merchant request is compatible with the "Manual" configuration on the FLOA PAY acquisition contract side.

The diagram below explains the different transaction statuses according to the chosen capture mode:

Description of the possible statuses for a Floa Bank CB 3X and/or 4X transaction

In validation mode (captureMode = VALIDATION), if the transaction is accepted, it is set to status TO_VALIDATE. In immediate mode (captureMode = IMMEDIATE), if the transaction is accepted (responseCode equal to 00), it is set to status CAPTURED. Regardless of the capture mode, if the transaction is refused (responseCode not equal to 00), it is set to status REFUSED.

The payment process for Sips Paypage is described below:

Steps of a Lyf Pay payment via Paypage

1) The customer proceeds with the payment. 2) They are redirected to the means of payment selection page hosted by Worldline Sips, they select Floa Bank CB 3X and/or 4X and enter their card number. 3) They are redirected to the Floa Bank CB 3X and/or 4X page where they authenticate themselves. 4) They are redirected to a Worldline Sips page. 5) If they click on the back to eshop button, they are redirected to your website which triggers the manual response to be sent. 6) Worldline Sips sends an automatic response.
