Getting Started

In order to begin the development project to utilize the viaConex solution, you first need to identify the type of transaction processing that is required for the program. The two processing environments are Terminal-Based Development and Host-Based Development.

Next, the Market type(s) need to be identified for the project. The available options are: Retail, Restaurant, Mail/Telephone Order, Internet, Lodging, and Auto Rental processing.

A Vendor Number will be assigned by Elavon’s Vendor Certification Department. This number will be an alphanumeric value and should be capitalized. All Vendor Certification Device Types will be a value of “Z”.

In order to send transactions to either the development or production server, a Registration Key is required in all scripts sent for processing. A default development key does exist and can be used during the initial phases of evaluation, but once a unique key is assigned to the project, it should be used for both the development and production servers. This key will be assigned by Elavon’s Vendor Certification Department.

Lastly, a Bank Number and Terminal ID will be assigned to the development servers for testing. Once the certification is complete and the program is ready for production, these values will need to be filled according to the Merchant’s assigned Bank and Terminal numbers.
