Presense of payment information on this page indicates that your site and your payment gateway are able to send/receive trasnaction data succesfully.

Absense of payment information, in turn, means that communication between your website and your gateway is either broken or has not been established at all. As a result user doesn't get purchased service automaitcally.

Checking your configurations

Make sure that you have configured your gateway account in accordance with our user guides:
