Configure TargetPay Payments Plugin

 With the TargetPay plugin you can accept Sofort Banking, IDeal and Mr Cash (Belgie) at your RD e-Tickets website! Below we will describe how to set it up at your website. 


  • An account on TargetPay (Registration is Free - You only have to pay transaction fees)
  • Joomla 2.5.14 or later installed.
  • RD e-Tickets 2.5.5 or later installed in Joomla.

Installation of the Plugin:

You may install the plugin by the Joomla installer, but there is only but in this story to get it working properly. In the zip file you can find a file called: "preparse.php" this file needs to be placed in the root of your website. Why? The reason for placing the script there is that TargetPay will not accept all kind of parameters inside the return URL. We have created a return URL that holds all parameters in one parameter. The script will convert this back to the correct return URL (Your lient won't see this at all)
