About Program API

Integration Web Service
The Web Services software is built to interact with cardholder information. Whether doing a batch process of accounts via another client application, a real-time web request through the Galileo interface, or a terminal transaction through a closed network, clients can use Web Services to meet a wide variety of needs.

Currently, the Web Services software can handle account transactions with the defined methods. Additional methods and modifications may be developed at an additional cost.

The purpose of this document is to explain a general process flow and define the parameters of a transaction. As a provider, you will build an interface to utilize the defined methods and parameters in this service.

Information provided by Galileo Processing:

  • Secure web address
  • Provider ID
  • Provider usernames and passwords
  • Product IDs

Information provided by Client:

  • Business contact
  • Technical contact
  • Connecting Provider IP address or address range

The web service is available on HTTP through an SSL connection. Galileo Processing will provide you with information in order to get connected using Representational State Transfer (REST).
