  • Integrating CnP with Custom Contact and Transaction objects

    Hello everyone,
    We are new to CnP. We have developped a 100% Force.com app that does not use the standard Contact object, but a custom Contact object with Email and all. We also have a custom Transaction object that we use to process paypal payments. All work fine. How can we use the CnP APIs to run a regular Credit Card process through our Custom Contact and Transaction objects? Thanks in advance. Jerome

    Good day!

    If you are not planning to use our PaaS platform on Salesforce then you may want to use the API Class Library to write your own program or the distribute the transaction information among your objects.

    I am curious as to why you are not using our PaaS platform?

    If you wish to write your own program then you may use the C&P Bridge where we post the transaction information into Salesforce & won't do anything else. Here is the info:

    The API platform will post the transaction information to Salesforce as an XML post. You may parse the XML and do as you wish with the information.

    Let me know if you need any additional information.

        Hello,
        It has been a while. Following up on that post. I am running the PaaS APi library.
        I am still not clear how to assign my transaction to a NON-Standard Contact object. I currently feed the CnP with data from my Custom-Transaction objects. Works Fine. But I do not know how to feed BillingInfo with information coming from my Custom-Contact object. As I understand it, the API look for a SFDC Standard-contact to assigns the transaction to. As there is none, it creates both the SFDC-Standard-contact and the SFDC-Standard-account. How can I tell CnP to assign the transaction to my custom-Contact?
        Thanks in advance for getting back to me; Happy Thanksgiving,
        Jerome

          Good day!

          Sorry but we map the billing & shipping information to the mailing and other address fields in the Contact record. This cannot be changed in release 7.x. release.

          In release 8.0 you may map it to other fields in the Contact object but you cannot map any information to another "Contact" object that you have created. The following is the image for release 8.0 and how it will be done:

          As stated earlier, you may map the billing information to different fields in the "Contact" & "Account" objects but NOT to any other objects.

          Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

            Good day! (again)..

            I just realized that you are referring to the API Class Library in Salesforce and not our PaaS application.

            The API Class Library simply posts to the Bridge and we don't do anything afterwards. If you are only using the API Library then mapping it is what you have to do and using the XML posted to the Bridge you can do whatever you want.

            Would you please elaborate as to what applications you are using. Are you ONLY using the library or are you using the payment application release 7.4xxx
