XML API integration is ideal for businesses that want to:
Completely control the checkout process.
Directly integrate with Converge.
Collect payment data using their own servers and pass that information to Converge for processing.
In XML API, Converge cannot collect additional data when the request has been sent. As such, include all the appropriate and required data in the transaction request before sending it for processing.
This table provides an overview of the XML API integration method:
|Ease of Integration||Hard|

For Card present transactons, we strongly recommend reviewing the capabilities of CommerceSDK before starting a direct integration with converge.
