With the First Data module installed on a web store, customers have an option to save credit cards they use for payment with one click and use them for their next purchases. This way, you improve user experience on your website by eliminating the need to enter credit card details for every order a customer makes. Besides, you can provide your customers with multiple payment options since the First Data/Payeezy extension supports the majority of credit card types. It is proved that faster checkout process and variety of payment options decreases cart abandonment rate and brings more returning customers to an online store.
The Magento 2 First Data integration adds a new tab to the customers’ accounts, where they can manage and update their saved credit cards, as well as add new cards and use them later for placing orders. Stored payment data is also useful for admin users, as they get the possibility to view, modify, and delete saved cards details, as well as create new cards for the customers in the same way as they do in their frontend profiles. Besides, Magento admins can place orders on behalf of customers and use saved credit cards in the payment info. The extension also allows admin users to edit orders without the need to request credit card information from the customers. Other possibilities provided by the First Data module in the backend include the creation of partial invoices with the reauthorization and processing partial refunds by generating online credit memos.
The Paradox Labs First Data/Payeezy integration significantly enhances the security of payment transactions on a web store since it stores customer sensitive data on the First Data servers. In addition to performing all standard payment operations, the module uses the TransArmor tokenization model that allows replacing confidential data with tokens and use them in the merchant environment. As for the customer experience, the First Data module doesn’t redirect customers to the payment provider’s site for transaction processing, so your clients feel like they never leave your store.
Moreover, the First Data payment solution is fully PCI compliant, which protects websites from fraudulent activity. Thus, merchants reduce the risks of technical issues related to payment processing that may occur on their site and save time and money on meeting PCI compliance requirements.
Also, the First Data payment solution ensures high-level security by utilizing CCV verification and billing address validation (AVS) functionality. It is possible to configure the module in the way that entering card number verification will be required with every purchase. Besides, admins must enter the CCV verification number when placing orders on behalf of customers, which adds a security layer against possible data breach and increases customer trust.
To start using the Paradox Labs module, you must have First Data developer and merchant accounts with the TransArmor service enabled. After you sign up for your accounts, you can proceed with configuring the module.
The general settings of the Magento 2 First Data/Payeezy extension are located under Stores -> Settings -> Configuration -> Sales -> Payment Methods -> First Data.

First, you should enable the extension to make the First Data payment method available on your storefront. If you want to test how the module works, you should select “Yes” in the “Is Sandbox Account” field and then enter your First Data credentials for a sandbox account. In Title, you can modify the label for the First Data payment gateway on the checkout and order status pages. In the “Merchant Token”, “API Key”, “API Secret”, “JS Security Key”, and “Transarmor Token” fields you should insert the values from your First Data account. Then, select a payment action (Save info (do not authorize), Authorize, or Authorize and Capture) and the initial status for the placed orders (Pending, Processing, Suspected Fraud, or On Hold) and decide whether to display the First Data logo at the checkout.
