Description

Hello,

as I understand it, we could develop our own plug-in into sitecash? We would like to implement accepting prepaid OTP (SMS or scratchcard) from a central database, how is this done the easiest way?

You are absolutely right! It is possible to develop your own SiteCash monetary or access control device. All you need is our calcium-sdk which contains a dummy-device sample (C++) and all COM interface definitions. But after all this is a quite undocumented and unsupported issue. In Germany some people managed it to create their own device and as far as I heard they are quite happy with it. But at least a few people who had no idea of COM before failed to compile the sample at all. So please have a closer look to the calcium-sdk sources before you make your decision. It is definitely not the easiest task at all.

If you have experienced COM developers or you would like to invest a lot of time into the development it should be no problem.
