Calling the interface

The Computop Paygate can translate back a Pseudo Card Number (PCNr) into the corresponding credit card number (CCNr).

Notice: Back translation is done via a server-to-sever connection. Please note also the information about the process of a server-to-server payment. The batch interface is not supported.

In order to translate back an existing PCNr via a server-to-server connection to a CCNr, please use the following URL:


Notice: For security reasons, Paygate rejects all payment requests with formatting errors. Therefore, please use the correct data type for each parameter.

The following table describes the encrypted payment request parameters:
