Shopping Carts

Secure Payment Forms

Fast Charge is compatible with thousands of e-commerce shopping carts and if you don’t see us listed as a payment gateway you can still use Fast Charge with just about any shopping cart using our Authorize net Emulator:


The Authorize.Net Emulator allows merchants to use the Authorize.Net payment module that is available in most third-party shopping carts. Simply change the POST TO™ URL within the Authorize.Net payment module to point to Fast charge™ gateway and your account will be up and running within a few minutes.


Locate the Authorize.Net Aim Payment Module in your shopping cart and change the POST TO™ URL FROM: TO: on the shopping cart and its payment module you may need to change the post to URL in 1,2 or 3 places. It’s best to find the AIM payment module and then change it everywhere in this file. Here’s a tip, do a search in the AIM file for “. dllâ€? to help you find the URLs to replace with the emulator URL.

Admin Settings:

Login to your Admin Panel and open the “Payment Methods” setting for Authorize net. If it gives you a choice select the AIM module because this will allow customers to stay on your site when they purchase from you. Once you get to the settings you can enter the following information:

API Login ID: This is your fast charge Account ID (FCXXX)

Transaction Key: This is your Fast charge “Merchant Pin”

Mode: We always suggest “Live Mode or Production Mode”

Gateway URL: If you have this option enter

MD5 Hash: We now ignore this, but you can enter “7gt77lyst555r7677yt”

Authorize or Capture: We recommend you select Authorize and Capture

Oscommerce is the original open source shopping cart and has 60,000 custom addons developed by users. We used to recommend Oscommerce until we received so much good feedback about Zen cart. The difference between oscommerce and Zen cart is that Zen cart comes with many bells and whistles already installed. Oscommerce has more addons but most of them require advanced coding which the average merchant has trouble with.


OpenCart is an open source shopping cart that has very advanced features such as? multi-currency, multi languages and product reviews etc. OpenCart makes their money providing support and addon services etc. They have very good support, but a programmer will probably be required to get it installed.

Shop Site

Shop site is a very good “Paid Cart” that also has a “One Click” activation setting in their admin settings. The downside to Shop site is it’s a little more expensive and not for entry level or growing merchants unless they are prepared to spend a little bit per month for their webhosting, but it is very good.

Any of these plugins can be edited to work with Fast charge and very little programming is needed. However, there’s a note of caution about WordPress plugins. Most of these are free to install but most of them require some type of paid service or upgrade to get them to work correctly or only allow a few products.


Magento is a “free to install” cart that has many features available and is used by many very large companies. It started as an open source shopping cart that has evolved into a pay as you go cart.

We only recommend them because their order management system for larger companies highly recommended by direct marketing, direct mail and very large companies. Magento has the ability receive direct feeds from UPS or FedEx for package tracking and returns etc.
