Payment Gateway same as Merchant Account?

Ok, this is probably a dumb question. I'm looking in CyberSource for the Payment Gateway id and key, but can't find the mention of even the word gateway. Am I looking in the wrong place? Does Cybersource use different terminology?

Thanks in advance,

    ok, what i need to know is:

    is foxycart connected to cybersource through 1. a hosted order, or 2. one of the three apis, or 3. the simple order api

    after i find that out, i download the id and key from cybersource

    Luke will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we're using the newest API method (which I believe is all nice and SOAPy).
  • sweet, thanks
  • so wait, which of these options do I need to download from?

    A. Security Keys for the Simple Order API
    The Simple Order API uses a PKCS12 key file with the .p12 extension to digitally sign your SOAP request message before transmitting the message to CyberSource.

    B. Security Keys for the SOAP Toolkit API
    The SOAP Toolkit API uses authentication provided by a base-64-encoded transaction key represented in string format. Use this authentication method if you want to create your SOAP message.

    Yes, the "transaction key" is what you're looking for. That's part of the SOAP toolkit API. We're currently updating our documentation and will make this clearer in the future.
