Qvalent Quick Gateway


Qvalent Quick Gateway

Qvalent QuickGateway provides payment gateway services that provides online credit card payment processing. This gateway is pre-integrated with Zuora and is both easy to configure and use. 

Customers domiciled in Australia and New Zealand can use the Qvalent QuickGateway to process credit card transactions. Qvalent QuickGateway supports Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards.

This gateway requires adding Zuora EU or US Cloud Data Center IP addresses to the whitelist for each of your gateway merchant accounts, depending on which data center that your tenant is located at. Therefore, before start using this gateway on Zuora EU or US Cloud Data Center, you must contact with the gateway to add Zuora EU or US Clould Data Center IP addresses to the gateway's whitelist for both the Sandbox and Production environments so that both environments can work properly.
For more information about the Zuora EU or US Cloud Data Center IP addresses, see Outbound IP Addresses Whitelisting.

Configure Qvalent Quick Gateway

To set up Qvalent QuickGateway as your gateway, enter your Qvalent credentials in the Payment Settings > Setup Payment Gateway page. When selecting a Gateway Type, choose Qvalent.

Common Fields for Configuration

There are some common fields you must complete for every gateway configuration. We recommend reviewing our Setup Payment Gateway documentation for information on these common fields: 

  • Name
  • Use Gateway Test Environment
  • Cards Accepted
  • Default Authorization Amount
  • Verify new payment method (optional)
  • Verify updated payment method (optional)

In addition to the common fields, every gateway has unique requirements and information (such as credentials and certain rules) that you must provide to configure the gateway in Zuora. 

Qvalent Quick Gateway Credentials

Your credentials will be obtained from Qvalent and configured in Zuora. To configure the Qvalent QuickGateway payment gateway in Zuora, you must enter the following information: 

User Name and Password

The user name that identifies your company. This value is assigned by QuickGateway.

The password is provided to you with your username.


The merchant identifier to use for the transaction, this allows you to have multiple merchant accounts. This is provided by QuickGateway.


The certificate file is provided by QuickGateway. A password is required to open the file. 

Electronic Commerce Indicator

The Electronic Commerce Indicator (ECI) is used by acquirers/issuers to determine the type of transaction being processed. The ECI value should represent the source of the transaction request. That is, the environment that the cardholder used to provide the payment card details to the merchant. It is important that merchants set the correct ECI value during transaction processing to ensure that appropriate merchant service rates are received.

in the Electronic Commerce Indicator list, select the channel through which your payment transactions are originating. This is a requirement from credit card networks, because different methods of acceptance can result in higher or lower transaction fees. For example, card present transactions (where the magnetic stripe on a card is read by a card reader) might have lower transaction fees than a card not present (telephone, online) transaction because the former method has a lower fraud risk. 

  • Call Center Transaction: The payment transactions originate from a call center.
  • IVR Transaction: The payment transactions originate from an interactive voice response (IVR) system.
  • MOTO Transaction: The payment transactions originate from mail order/telephone order (MOTO). 
  • Channel Encrypted Transaction (SSL or other): The payment transactions originate from an encrypted transaction. 
  • Recurring payment: The payment transactions originate from a recurring payment. 
  • ECI value 5/6/7 for 3D Secure transaction: The numeric ECI values are available only when the transaction contains the 3D Secure order.xid and order.cavv fields. Depending on your 3D Secure MPI software, you might need to convert the MasterCard ECI values to Visa ECI values.

Most of Zuora’s customers will likely use Recurring, but your specific selection should depend on where you are creating the payment. Check with your QuickGateway account manager or support team for the appropriate value.

If you select Channel Encrypted Transaction (SSL), there’s a chance that recurring transactions (which don’t have the CVV available to them) could fail for some credit cards because the card issuing bank might reject transactions that don't have a CVN/CVV value. If you find that occurring in your setup, consider setting the ECI Indicator to Recurring, which does not require the CVV value.

Testing Your Configuration

We recommend testing your selected payment gateway using both your payment gateway's test and production (live) environments. Once you have completed testing in the gateway's test environment, it is recommended that you perform a test in your live production environment with a real credit card. If there are any differences in the configuration of your testing and production accounts, testing in production ensures your production merchant account is set up properly and can successfully connect to the production environment.

Accessing Your Gateway's Test Environment

Some payment gateways provide separate credentials for merchants to access their testing (or certification) environment, some gateways use the same credentials for testing as for the production (live) environment but direct test transactions to a different URL, and other gateways do a little of both. Qvalent QuickGateway provides you the ability to both test your transactions using a developer's test account as well as testing your transactions in your live account in test mode.

Accessing the Qvalent QuickGateway Test or Production Environment from Zuora

When configuring the Qvalent QuickGateway payment gateway in Zuora, you can indicate whether you would like to use the Qvalent QuickGateway test environment or the Qvalent QuickGateway production environment. 

  • If you selected Use Gateway Test Environment, Zuora will direct payment transactions to the Qvalent QuickGateway certification environment at
  • If you have not selected Use Gateway Test Environment, Zuora will direct payment transactions to your Qvalent QuickGateway production environment at

Test Credit Cards and Testing Scenarios

Zuora recommends that you contact your Qvalent implementation manager, account manager, or Qvalent support to request a set of test credit cards and testing scenarios. 

 Do not use real credit card information in your gateway's test environment.

General Testing Information

In general, gateway testing environments are intended to give merchants the opportunity to test their gateway and integrations to their gateway, in order to work out any bugs before going to the production environment. Some gateway test environments are shared amongst multiple merchants, and other gateways provide unique testing environments for each merchant. Additionally, gateway test environments (also referred to as certification or sandbox environments) do not have the same high availability or performance capability as production environments. As such, they are not intended for load testing. Merchants performing high volumes of load testing that puts a stress on a shared test environment may receive a warning from the gateway or have their access to the testing environment suspended.

Troubleshooting Gateway Errors

For failed payments processed using the Qvalent QuickGateway payment gateway, Z-Payments will provide the gateway Response Reason Code (for example, 44) and Response Reason Text (for example, This transaction has been declined).

To find more information on Qvalent QuickGateway payment gateway errors:

  1. Look up the transaction by the transaction ID number (in the Zuora payment detail page, this is the Reference ID and Secondary Reference ID numbers) in your merchant account to see if more information is provided; often you will see more than just the response (reasons) code and response message in Zuora.
  2. If you require additional information, contact Qvalent QuickGateway Support. Be sure to have the following information available:
    • Your Qvalent QuickGateway Account’s Gateway ID number. This is required for them to support you and log a case.
    • The name of business (your company name).
    • The name, email address, and phone number of the person requesting support (that is, your name, email address, and phone).
    • The Transaction ID (in Z-Payments, this is the Reference ID) for the failed payment. 

Make Sure You Are Not Re-Trying an Invalid Card Too Many Times

We recommend that you check the payment in Zuora to see how many times the same payment method has been retried for payment and failed. If there have been several retries, check the error messages from the beginning with the first failure and the more recent failures to determine if the error message is the same. If a merchant tries to process a payment against the same credit card too many times despite receiving errors, this could trigger warnings to the card issuing bank. The card issuing bank may place an alert on the account and not allow any further transactions from the merchant using that payment method. When a mechant has been flagged, the error received on the payment may be not state the reason why, instead it might be a generic error such as 2 - Declined. In this case, the merchant (Zuora customer) should work with their merchant acquirer/processor to see if they can identify the problem with the payment method. If the processor does not know, then the merchant and/or the card holder can try calling their card issuing bank to look into the issue

Supported Gateway Option Fields 

You can submit additional information to Qvalent QuickGateway using gateway options. Refer to your gateway documentation to see all supported Gateway Options fields. These fields can be used in Payment Pages 2.0SOAP API, or the following REST API:

Gateway Limitations

  • Qvalent QuickGateway supports two currencies: AUD and NZD. If you want to accept NZD transactions, you must contact your Westpac relationship manager and begin the application for the merchant ID. Qvalent QuickGateway will provide details on how to certify NZD. Certification is not required to process AUD.
  • Qvalent QuickGateway does not support the Soft Descriptor field. 
  • If you send customer.orderNumber via GatewayOptions through the Zuora API, you must ensure that your application prevents duplicate payments. Zuora and QuickGateway do not check to make sure that you have not sent a duplicate customer.orderNumber.
    • If you do not send the customer.orderNumber, Zuora will generate a 32-character random alphanumeric value to Qvalent QuickGateway. This can help prevent duplication.
