Payment Module Tutorial


Recommended Posts

I've been looking around on this site trying to find some documentation on how to write a payment module. I'm an experienced php programmer but I don't like just flailing around in the dark trying to figure out how the whole system works... So is there a tutorial or some documentation somewhere?

Well, over seven years have passed and nobody has answered this post. I think it's a very valid question.


So here I am, in a similar situation (experienced with PHP, trying to work on an osCommerce site, seeking documentation) -- does anybody know of any useful how-to's and/or overview documents on how osCommerce "works" under the hood?


Example topics of interest:


  • The structure of a module
  • The structure of the site as a whole, and how modules are integrated in
  • How the other parts fit together
  • What interface functions a module must provide, their formats, their purposes, and when they get called
  • Proper use of the database tables
  • Formats
  • Which "other" files besides the module itself you have to muck with to successfully add a new module to a system
  • Avoiding conflicts with customized files and other contributed modules
