Case study | Inprova Group Ltd
Development of International Payment Solutions
The implementation of an international portal and integrated payment modules to connect students with educational providers.
International payment portal
Within the scope of cooperation, we were focused on the integration of payment solutions with China’s leading third-party online payment method, the implementation of a payment module that allows for the application of different discounts for customers of the UniPay system, and setting up a spread value for any combination of currencies. Furthermore, we extended the functionality of the international portal by allowing students who are signed up at several universities to make payments to many of them at the same time.
Key tools and technologies used during the project development phase were Visual Studio, SQL Server, DevExpress, SVN, .NET Framework, ASP.NET Web Forms, Windows Communication Foundation.
In terms of project delivery, we followed the Agile approach which allowed both parties to improve the quality of communication. Both teams (British & Polish) were in touch on a daily basis (using video conferencing equipment) and had weekly follow-up meetings to summarize all the crucial aspects of the project and plan for the next weeks of development.
The scope of the project was the integration of one of the leading international payment solutions with other payment systems. This solution supports over 47% of the Chinese market, with over 500 million registered users, and is a fundamental form of online payment in China. It operates similarly to the eBay/PayPal system in the USA.
The implementation of a payment module that allows for the application of different discounts for customers of the UniPay system, and setting up a spread value for any combination of currencies.
Provision was made for students to make several payments to particular institutions simultaneously and allow parents to make payments on behalf of their children.
