Setting up APC

The NOCHEX Automatic Payment Confirmation system will mean that your orders will be automatically authorized when they come in. Setting it up is quite simple.

To enable APC support on your NOCHEX account you have to contact NOCHEX support here:

Once you have done this you can log in to your NOCHEX account and click on the "Edit Automatic Payment Confirmation Details" menu option. The URL that you will need to enter is:

(You will of course need to change for the URL of your own site)


To connect securely to the NOCHEX server the PHP version of the templates require an extension to the PHP language called cURL installed and set up for secure (SSL) connections. If you have tried the instructions above and your orders are still not being authorized automatically, then to check if cURL is installed just open the ncconfirm.php page directly in your browser by entering the following URL:

(You will of course need to change for the URL of your own site)

If you just receive a blank page then things are probably ok. If you receive an error message then it is probably an indication that cURL is not properly installed.

If your host does not have cURL installed as a PHP extension, they may still have it on the command line. In that case if they will just tell you where it is, you can set the parameter in your includes.php file.

From version 4.8.1 emails are sent out for NOCHEX payments when the NOCHEX APC arrives. The responderurl is also set for NOCHEX payments meaning you don't have to ask NOCHEX support to set the APC URL.

From September 2007 NOCHEX have 2 systems for their callbacks, the old and a new system they are just introducing. New accounts being opened now are automatically using the new system which means you have to add the following to your vsadmin/includes.php file...
Users already using NOCHEX have to ask to use the new callback system. When you do that you then add the line above to your includes.php file.

Please do read our guide here on credit card fraud.

That's all there is to it really - any comments on the set up can be posted on our Support Forum.
