Hi,

In the Netherlands we use a payment method named iDeal, which is provided by several payment providers.
For example a company calt Buckaroo. The have made plugins for Oscommerce and zendcart.
I was wondering when can we expect to build in our custom payment/checkout systems.

Thanks for a great piece of software! Magento looks not only very nice, but workt extremely friendly!

Bluemotion. We cannot be sure but i think that international payment gateways will be delivered by our community and not by Varien team. They will probably set only the most important gateways up. As i see Magento’s team is very helpful so we can count on them if there’ll be any problems smile

There are zounds of modules and gateways so we should let Varien focus only on core development smile to the final release.

Thanks for your reply, I wasn’t expecting Varien to develop payment gateways, but can we expect documentation how to implement new payment gateways. This because Magento isn’t a stable version yet, just a preview version.

I have built allot of Zen Cart shops in the past and am really looking forward to using magento instead. The screencasts should help customers understand how the software works. In the Zen Cart World most payment gateways I believe are just variations of the authorize.net module so as soon as one payment gateway is provided by Varien it shouldn’t be to difficult to modify the code in order for other payment gateways to be supported.

As long as Paypal and Google Checkout are supported most people should be good to go.

Maybe one of the Magento developers can give an answer if we can expect a payment gateway example?

Paypal and Google Checkout are not much used in the Netherlands, most used payment types are credit card en iDeal.
iDeal stands for a paymentsystem, which means you can pay direct with your own bank account. All dutch banks are connected to iDeal.

Documentation will be provided which will make things easier once the API is finalized.

Can you already tell when the documentation will be provided? Q4 of 2007?
Sorry for pushing, but this feature depends whether I can you use Magento or not.
