Realex (Realauth) payment gateway does not support ACCOUNT

The RealAuth docs state that the ACCOUNT variable must be used for defining the subaccount used. If this variable is not present in the request then the default ACCOUNT “internet” will be used.

My client is using a different account name then the default so the payments through Realex do not work. I have made some ammendments to the code which will allow the user to set an account name. If it is left blank it will default to the default account “internet”.

I am using version 3.1.27.P

If anyone else needs the same modifications done I can send you the code modifications I made. Or how would I go about submitting the changes so they can be changes in the next version?

Hi Michael,

If you send the details via I can get them forwarded onto the right developer to deal with it.

It’s appreciated that you are willing to share the code.

Hi Michael,
can you please forard me the code. Need it for testing

Dean, another variable needs to be passed along with merchantid & secret. If account variable is set to internettest, then transaction are made in test mode.
$merchantid = “XXXXXXX”;
$secret = “XXXXXXXX”;
$account = “internettest”;

@alan: Where would you like me to forward the code too? The original code would send the variable ACCOUNT=”internettest” when the sandbox was enabled.

In my code modifications I changed it so it would still behave the same way if the account variable is not set in the gateway configuration.

@dean: I will send the changes to the email address you gave me.
