The Worldpay Onboarding process will vary according to implementation model. The three common integration models are: direct (via cnpAPI), through an Integrated Partner, and through a non-integrated third party. The table below shows the typical tasks and overall timeline.


All timelines shown below assume availability of Payment Facilitator/Partner engineering resources. Lack of resources for coding and testing will extend the timeline.
