Third Party Checkout

Third Party Checkouts

Whilst we have made every effort to provide integration for the popular checkout solutions if bespoke customisation work has taken place on your store’s checkout or you don’t use the latest versions we cannot guarantee the extension will work out of the box.

Hosted Fields

Hosted Fields

Hosted Fields are small, transparent iframes that replace the sensitive credit card inputs in your checkout flow - helping you meet the latest data security requirements while ensuring your customization doesn't suffer.

Anyone who accepts credit card payments needs to comply with latest PCI DSS rules. Any payments company that tells you otherwise isn't telling you the whole story.

Fortunately, Braintree eliminates almost all of the work required for our merchants to be PCI 3.0 compliant. Which is good news, because the card associations can suspend your ability to accept credit card payments if they find that you aren't compliant.

This functionality provided by Braintree is now available to use within Magento utilising this extension.

Card Payment

PayPal Integration


With a simple configuration setting in the Magento admin you can add PayPal to your checkout and get all the benefits from their latest in-context and One Touch experiences to significantly improve the customer experience and increase your checkout conversion. No more bouncing out to the PayPal website.

With this one integration you will then be able to administer all your PayPal transactions through the Braintree control panel.

PayPal can be added to product detail pages or the cart/basket pages as well as the checkout.

Fraud Protection


Braintree's Basic and Advanced Fraud Tools have been designed to help the majority of merchants deter credit card fraud while still allowing legitimate transactions to process. However, some merchants may wish to have greater control over their fraud checks. The Kount direct and advanced integration offers a solution to that need.

You'll need to work with your Braintree Accounts team to determine whether or not it's a good fit for your needs. If it is, you'll be passed to a Kount Account Manager who will get you set up on their end. Then, you'll need to update your Braintree integration to include your new Kount merchant ID. If you nee specific settings for the KOUNT UDF's then this requires custom setup which can be arranged with your Braintree Accounts team.
