After you install PagSeguro module on your store, it will be visible to your website visitors as a payment method along with other available payment options when they proceed to checkout.
The payment page can be displayed in two ways on the frontend, depending on which connection type a store admin chooses in the module’s configuration settings. One option is a redirect integration type. With this connection type, customers will be redirected to the PagSeguro provider’s payment page, where they should enter their credit card details. After completing a purchase on that page, a customer will be redirected back to the order success page on your store. PagSeguro payment page is completely PCI compliant, providing customers with a safe way of placing their orders without saving any sensitive data of their credit cards.
Another module integration type you can choose is a lightbox. With this option, a popup window will be embedded in your store. Customers can fill their credit cards information without leaving the checkout page on your store. In this case, sensitive card data is also not stored on your server, but processed in the PagSeguro secure environment. After a customer completes the payment, they receive an order success confirmation from your store.
