Cart32 is integrated with Cybersource as a payment method. Use the quick links below to review how to create or update keys and for information on common questions with the Cybersource integration.

Registering The Cybersource DLL File
As of October 25, 2003 Cart32 has had Cybersource integrated as a payment option. Any Cart32 installation made after this date should have the files you need to use Cybersource already included. By default you should NOT have to manually register the DLL. However, if the situation arises, here are the steps to registering the Cybersource DLL file:

  1. Open a command prompt window on your server by going to Start --> Run and typing in cmd. Then click OK
  2. Navigate from the command prompts current location to the Cart32 directory where you have Cart32 installed. (This is done using the change directory command: cd)
  3. Type the following command to register the DLL: regsvr32 ics2com.dll
  4. You should see a popup telling you the DLL has been registered. You can click OK top close that popup and then type exit to leave the command prompt window

Creating and Updating Cybersource Keys
Cybersource requires you to run a special program that will generate certificate key files which are used to help secure the credit card sales. Here are the steps to create or update your certificate files (Cybersource requires the keys to be updated every so often):
  1. Log in to the Business Center, and in the left navigation pane, choose Account Management > Transaction Security Keys.
  2. In the Transaction Security Keys window, click Security Keys for the SCMP API.
  3. Click 2048-Bit Key. The New Security Key page appears.
  4. Click Generate Certificate Request. While the new key files are generated, messages appear in the Messages text box. Your browser then opens a Save As dialog box.
  5. In the Save As dialog box, navigate to a safe location for your key files.
  6. Take the files created created by(merchantid.crt, merchantid.pvt, CyberSource_SJC_US.crt) and copy them to a folder called keys in the root of your template files directory
