Below you will find a few more functions which you may use in your gateway.



This function is a helper that handles the credentials and some settings of the gateway. It makes the code cleaner, because in our example we needed those credentials in both taketogateway_function() and processgateway_function().

This function returns the information about a particular order, or inserts a new one.

Default value: 0

Return (array)
