Configuring Optimal Gateway

To configure Optimal Gateway into your Lime Light CRM, you will go to Payment Systems>Gateway Providers and select Optimal in your Gateway Accounts drop down menu. Click on “Add Gateway” and fill out the gateway parameters.

These parameters are briefly described here for your reference:

Merchant ID: Optimal will provide you the Merchant ID.

Currency: Optimal currently supports USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, DKK, NOK, and SEK currencies.

Store ID: Optimal will provide you the Store ID.

Store Password: Same password that you have set up for your account with Optimal.

3D Secure: Select whether or not to use 3D Secure. The use of this feature requires customer interaction during transactions since sensitive data from the customer must be provided in order for a transaction to be approved. This feature is not supported with order imports in the CRM.

Use Decline Salvage?: Select "Yes" if you're using the decline salvage service that is offered through Verifi.

Gateway Alias: name that you will assign to the gateway. This is for internal purposes only; it helps you identify a specific gateway account among several of them in your CRM.


Once your gateway profile has been created, then you will go through your campaigns and assign the gateway to the corresponding campaign(s).
