How does it work?
💳 In-page implementation
Our Bluesnap CC integration allows you to load the credit card fields inside the checkout page for a frictionless experience.
The Credit Card fields are loaded directly from Bluesnap’s servers ensuring a secure connection between Bluesnap and the Customer. ( Checkout X doesn’t handle any card details )
🔒 3DS Secure
The Bluesnap CC integration is compatible with 3DS secure payments, which means that all payments are compliant with European Directives.
When enabled, the 3DS Secure screen is shown only when requested by the bank of the customer and it doesn’t bring any extra payment fees.

Enable test mode
Test mode will not allow you to process any real credit card transactions - only test cards will be available. This feature is meant to be used only if you are using a Bluesnap test ( sandbox ) account.
If you want to use a test BlueSnap account, just check the Enable test mode checkbox and click Save Payment Method
In any other case - leave the Enable test mode unchecked.
If you have customers in the European Union, you need to enable 3DSecure payments to comply with PSD2.
To do so, just check the Enable 3DSecure checkbox and click Save Payment Method
⚠️ Important: Before you enable 3DS on your Checkout X account, contact your Bluesnap account manager to make sure 3DS is enabled on your Bluesnap account.
Credit Card Logos
The credit card logos option allows you to display which CC brands are accepted on your checkout.
👍 Your checkout with Credit Card logos selected
👎 Your checkout without Credit Card logos selected
We recommend that you select the logos that your customers might be using, to avoid unnecessary confusion.
⚠️ Important: This setting is purely for cosmetic purposes. To control which credit card brands are accepted, visit your Bluesnap account.
Custom transaction description
An example of a Credit Card transaction in Revolut,
with “Mantastyle Shop” being the transaction description.
Each Credit Card transaction has a “Description” field which the customer can see when they open their internet banking account. This description is set by Bluesnap, but you can override it by adding a Custom transaction description.
The custom transaction description has a maximum limit of 20 symbols.
