Standards and certifications
Learn about Digital River's build standards and certification process.
You can work with Digital River to create a connector that meets our build standards, conduct tool-specific and store-specific certifications, and then deploy the connector to end sites. The following pages explain how to navigate this process:
- Certification process: A high-level and detailed explanation of how to certify your commerce connector tool.
- Compliance requirements: An introduction to the Merchant of Record/Seller of Record (MOR/SOR) requirements that your tool and the client sites it implements must meet. This section also describes the store compliance review and previews the learning tools we provide you to better understand the MOR/SOR requirements.
- Integration checklists: A set of checklists that cover important Digital River features your commerce connector should integrate.
By adhering to these standards and completing these certifications, you can take advantage of our commerce and payment products. More specifically, you'll be able to create certified, reusable components that integrate Digital River features into your platform and then deploy them across your client base.
