Client Challenge

Valin Corporation faced the following challenges:
  • They use a special way to take payments called “Element payment,” but their online store doesn’t support it.
  • They had trouble keeping track of orders, customers, and other important information. They had to do a lot of things manually, and sometimes they made mistakes.
  • They wanted to make sure their online server was safe and only the right people could use it.
  • Checkout Customization

Element payment Implementations

  • Valin has used the Element payment on their existing platform since they are using the Epicor P21 system.
  • Since P21 supports element payment very efficiently they are not ready to move to other payment methods.
  • However, there is a limitation on BigCommerce on the payment methods.
  • The BC does not support the Element payment method.
  • Hence we have implemented the Element payment method with the help of BigCommerce open source checkout.


Klizer helped customize the payment method with the help of the Element payment API’s. We have implemented the authorization alone on BigCommerce. Once the order is placed with the Element payment method the order will be processed to the P21 with the help of DCKAP Integrator jobs. Once the orders are processed the P21 order information will be updated on the BigCommerce orders with DCKAP Integrator pipes.
  • They made the online store work with the Element payment method.
  • They set up a way for Valin to automatically share information between their online store and their business management system. This way, they didn’t have to do as much manual work, and the information was always up to date.
  • They added an extra layer of security to make sure only authorized people could use Valin’s online server.
  • They changed the checkout process on the online store to make it match what Valin wanted.
