Cetelem, a brand of BNP Paribas Personal Finance, is a French financial institution specialising in financing individuals consumer credit activities.

The CPay cards (previously Aurore cards) of Cetelem allow to make cash or on credit payments.

To pay with a CPay card, cardholders have to provide their card details, namely:

  • Card number
  • Expiry date
  • Visual security code
  • The means of payment of their choice

All CPay payments are subject to 3-D Secure V2 during payment kinematics. When possible the authentication will be performed using Frictionless, however on Soft Decline error, an authentication using Chalenge mode will automatically be performed once again.

Cetelem and SG offer a CPay reconciliations report. With this daily reporting, you know the funds paid to you on your bank account. Transactions appear in the report when they are in the CAPTURED status. The report does not represent the actual state of your account. However, it is not possible to have an outstanding payment with a CPay payment.

All merchants benefiting from a CPay contract registered on Sogenactif will be able to benefit from CPay reconciliations reports if they make a request.

Cetelem rules for reconciliations report production

Considering T as the authorisation request date and if T is neither a public holiday nor a weekend, CPay reconciliations are triggered automatically:

  • the following morning (T+1 day) for transactions made before 10:20 pm
  • two days later, in the morning (T+2 days) for transactions made after 10:20 pm

If T is a public holiday or a weekend, CPay reconciliations are triggered automatically:

  • T+X+1 days later, in the morning, T+X being the next working day

Cetelem does not take a commission, so the "gross amount" and "net amount" fields will always have the same value.

In the case of payment campaigns in X instalments free of charge, the seller is responsible for bank charges. As SG is not aware of the amount of these bank charges, they can't appear in the reconciliations report, and the "gross amount" and "net amount" fields will also have the same value.

The customer selects the CPay means of payment.

They are then redirected to the required information entry page:

  • card number (mandatory)
  • expiry date (mandatory)
  • selecting a payment option
  • CVV (mandatory)

required information entry page

After providing the required information, the customer is redirected to the validation page of the previously entered information:

the validation page of the previously entered information

The customer confirms the payment:

Cetelem indicates whether the financing request has been accepted or refused:

page which indicates that Cetelem has accepted the financing

In order to offer the CPay means of payment on your website, you must have a contract with BNP Paribas Personal Finance. The contract number given to you by your bank must be sent to us for registration in our information system.

You can offer the CPay mean of payment through the Sogenactif Paypage which directly acts as the payment interface with customers via their web browser.

The remittance modes available for a CPay transaction are:

  • Cancellation mode: default mode allowing transaction remittance on a predefined date, called capture delay. When this capture delay is reached, the remittance is sent automatically. This delay is set via the captureDay field with its 0 default value (end-of-day payment).
  • Validation mode: you must validate the transaction to trigger the remittance. A capture delay must also be defined. When this capture delay is reached or exceeded, you will not be able to validate the transaction, which will therefore expire automatically.
  • Immediate mode: the authorisation and remittance are executed online simultaneously.

The diagram below explains the different transaction statuses according to the chosen capture mode:

diagram showing the different statuses of a transaction

If the merchant chooses validation mode, the transaction will either go to the To validate status if it has been accepted (response code 00) or to the refused status if it has been refused (response code different of 00). If the merchant chooses the cancellation mode, the transaction will either go to the To capture status if it was accepted (response code 00) or to the refused status if it was refused (response code different of 00). If the merchant chooses the immediate mode, the transaction will either go to the Captured status if it was accepted (response code 00) or to the refused status if it was refused (response code different of 00).

The payment process for Sogenactif Paypage is described below:

image showing the kinematics of a payment via Paypage

1) After finalizing the order on the merchant website, the customer proceeds to the payment. 2) The customer is redirected to the payment pages hosted on the Sogenactif side and selects Cpay. 3) The customer is redirected to the ACS of his bank to do a strong authentication. 4) When the customer returns to Sogenactif the ticket with the result is displayed. 5) If the customer clicks on the return to shop button, his redirected to the merchant's website which unlocks the manual response. 6) The Sogenactif engine also sends an automatic response to the merchant website.

The following fields have a particular behaviour:

Field name Remarks/rules
paymentPattern Tհe value sent in the request is ignored.
The payment type is forced to ONE_SHOT.
