Vantiv eCommerce Ruby SDK


All version changes require recertification to the new version. Once certified for the use of a new version, Vantiv modifies your Merchant Profile, allowing you to submit transaction to the Production Environment using the new version. Updating your code without recertification and modification of your Merchant Profile will result in transaction declines. Please consult you Implementation Analyst for additional information about this process.

About this SDK

No major updates are planned for this repository. SDK Version 12 and above can be found here: cnp-sdk-for-ruby

The Vantiv eCommerce Ruby SDK is a Ruby implementation of the Vantiv eCommerce. XML API. This SDK was created to make it as easy as possible to connect process your payments with Vantiv eCommerce. This SDK utilizes the HTTPS protocol to securely connect to Vantiv eCommerce. Using the SDK requires coordination with the Vantiv eCommerce team in order to be provided with credentials for accessing our systems.

Each Ruby SDK release supports all of the functionality present in the associated Vantiv eCommerce XML version (e.g., SDK v9.3.2 supports Vantiv eCommerce XML v9.3). Please see the online copy of our XSD for Vantiv eCommerce XML to get more details on what the Vantiv eCommerce payments engine supports.

This SDK was implemented to support the Ruby programming language and was created by Vantiv eCommerce. Its intended use is for online transaction processing utilizing your account on the Vantiv eCommerce payments engine.

See LICENSE file for details on using this software.

  1. Install the LitleOnline Ruby gem from rubygems.org, this will install the latest SDK gem in your Ruby environment. Our gem is available publicly from rubygems.org. Use the command below to install.

sudo gem install LitleOnline

Note: If you get errors, you might have to configure your proxy.

  1. Once the gem is installed run our setup program to generate a configuration file. The configuration file resides in your home directory $HOME/.litle_SDK_config.yml

For more details on setup see our instructions here

3.) Create a ruby file similar to:

require 'LitleOnline'
include LitleOnline

# Visa $10 Sale
litleSaleTxn = {
        'number' =>'4100000000000001',
        'expDate' =>'1212'},

# Peform the transaction on the Litle Platform
response = LitleOnlineRequest.new.sale(litleSaleTxn)

# display result
puts "Message: "+ response.message
puts "Litle Transaction ID: "+ response.saleResponse.litleTxnId
  1. Next run this file using ruby. You should see the following result provided you have connectivity to the Litle certification environment. You will see an HTTP error if you don't have access to the Litle URL
