Hi,

I’m a newbie to ecommerce so on a steep curve.

I’m creating my own store and wondering if Magento can handle payments to HSBC in the UK?

I have my account with them and having spoken to their internet support they don’t have a setup with Magento. However after reading this thread http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/4861/ it seems that others are trying to do the same.

What do I need to do with the file that’s been created and available in that thread, and what do I need to do with HSBC to make them happy to support it?

Many thanks.

it is a common practice in the UK to use a PSP - payment service provider to connect your shopping cart with your merchant bank. and it works much cheaper and better too.

One of the best PSP in the UK is protx - www.protx.com if you have your hsbc merchant number, you give it to protx and in a few days you get connected. Then download the protx extension : http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/143/protx-extension and you are done smile

protx will charge 20 quid per month for processing upto 1000 transactions per quarter.
