NOTE The real time fraud prevention is available for live account only. If you are using the live account and would like to enable the real time fraud checking, follow the instructions in the following.

Do the following to install the DataCash files and project:

  1. Start by downloading the DataCash module project files.

  4. If your product version is older than EPiServer Commerce 1 R2 (1.1):
    Open the file PaymentMethod.ascx.cs, locate all Templates/ClickTalk/Units/Placeable/plugins/payment and replace by Templates/Everything/BusinessControls/CheckoutControls/plugins/payment

    Open the file DataCashLandingPage.aspx, in line 6 replace src="/Templates/ClickTalk/Js/jquery-1.4.2.min.js" by src="/Templates/Everything/Scripts/jquery.js"

    Line 221: requestDoc.set("Request.Transaction.TxnDetails.The3rdMan.Realtime.real_time_sha1", HashCode(merchantReference));
  6. Rebuild the project.


Follow these steps to deploy the necessary files and enabling the DataCash payment module.

  1. Copy the EPiServer.Business.Commerce.Payment.DataCash.dll to the bin folder of both Commerce front-end and back-end sites.
  2. Copy EPiServer.dll, EPiServer.BaseLibrary.dll, ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll and Transaction.dll in folder DataCash\Lib to the bin folder of both Commerce front-end and back-end sites. If ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll exists, don’t replace.
  3. In the “Shared” folder (this folder is the “EPiServer Commerce Manager Shared Files Folder” that you selected when you installed Commerce), you should see the folder Plugins by following Shared\Apps\Order\Payments\Plugins. Create a new folder named “DataCash”, then copy ConfigurePayment.ascx to this folder.
