This page gives an overview of the Payment microservice for the Infosys Equinox platform.


One of the important steps in the consumer journey for placing an online order is the management of the payment. The Payment microservice (“Payment”) facilitates the processing of payments made via different payment instruments. Payments can be made using multiple payment types or instruments that the Payment microservice is configured to accept. Some of the commonly used payment types, such as the ones made using credit and debit cards are processed via a payment gateway. Payment supports extensions to various payment gateways through the installation of relevant plug-ins. However, payments made via the CyberSource payment gateway is supported out-of-the-box.

In addition to the payments made against an order, payment reversals and cancellations for returns and cancellations are also managed by the Payment microservice.
