WL 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 on despatch, deferred payment, recurring payment, payment in instalments, etc.).
The aim of this document is to present the "CustomPages" tool for customising pages of the WL Sips solution.
Who is this document for?
This document is intended for all merchants who want to customize the pages of their WL Sips solution using the "CustomPages" tool.
This includes payment pages and also wallet management pages. Depending on what you sell and/or what you want to customize, you may not necessarily be interested in all of the chapters in this document.
Essentially, you can customize all of the payment and wallet management pages to give web users an optimal user experience by implementing your own graphic design.
Today, with the increasing number of web terminals (PCs, tablets, smartphones, TVs, etc.) on the market, with a multitude of sizes, screen resolutions and very diverse support levels for web standards, we have designed web products that ensure access to information in this wide range of contexts without compromising the user experience. The pages of the WL Sips solution are designed to adapt to all of these terminal types.
you must ensure that the customisation elements are compatible with commonly used web browsers and that they comply with the applicable accessibility standards. The merchant is solely responsible for the elements provided and, consequently, guarantees their quality.
