Integration of 3rd Party API in Kentico CMS

Overview 

With 25+ years’ experience in the telecoms arena, a leading Mobile Phone Retailer based in the UK supplies airtime contracts and handsets to thousands of customers across the country.  To make life easy for their customers hence allowing easy change of tariffs, giving complete control was their primary aim. 

Goals 

Having thousands of customers over the last 24 years, the Business to Business division has over 10,000 clients, and the base is proliferating. The clients’ main aim was to sell various mobile SIM plans to multiple customers across the UK. They also wanted to make their customers’ life accessible by allowing smooth change of tariffs. 

Challenges 

Acknowledging Rigel Networks – a Kentico Silver Partner, they presented the impediments faced with their websites. 

>> Lifecycle Integration 

>> Integration of the PayPal via Pay 360 

Lifecycle Integration 

Running a SIM Card business, the UK’s fastest and newest mobile network wanted to activate the SIM Cards, as the Lifecycle Pvt. Ltd did not support the Lifecycle integration in ASP.NET framework.  

Integration of the PayPal via Pay 360 

Most of us prefer online payment, and since it is an online selling portal, having a payment gateway has become an essential part of the website. The client’s object of payment integration was basically to have its customer purchase the SIM Cards through their website. 

Solution by Rigel Networks 

Understanding their specifications, Rigel Networks – a Kentico Silver Partner, along with its Kentico 12 certified developers successfully resolved both their queries in the given time-line.  

The company Lifecycle Pvt. Ltd. did not support Lifecycle integration, which is mainly used to activate the SIM card. Rigel Networks, with its certified Kentico 12 developers, integrated the lifecycle using the framework Asp.Net. Here we created a class library, supported by the lifecycle to call API, using the request-response method of Asp.Net. While working on the project, we had to get in touch with the lifecycle support team, to get connected with the lifecycle API. After connecting with them, our developers successfully integrated into the client system.

Integration of PayPal via Pay 360 

Having a Payment Gateway was one of the primary concern for consumers to make payment through their website. For the integration, we had used PayPal, which is secure and very widely used payment structure. It is one of the prominent features from the Kentico, as it by default provides PayPal to integrate with the Kentico solution. Moreover, this feature requires a minimal amount of the effort to integrate it with the application. 

After entering a few details from the Admin panel of Kentico cms, we were able to connect with the PayPal, which was time-saving to code and managed by the Kentico.
