The Global Iris (HSBC) payments plugin works for VirtueMart 2 & Joomla 2.5.x ! It uses the re-direct method from Global Iris: a hosted application which allows you to redirect customers from your website to a secure payment environment, where the customer can enter his/her card details to complete the payment.
Once the transaction has been processed, Global Iris will return the response of the transaction to a dedicated response page on your server, so that VirtueMart can automatically update the order with the details of the transaction.
You will require a Global Iris Account in order to use the Puma-IT Global Iris payments plugin. For instructions on how to setup our plugin, please visit our documentation section.
This plugin has been successfully tested with Joomla 2.5.8+ and VirtueMart 2.0.14+.
Note: Global Iris (HSBC) uses the Realex payments platform.
