Multishop: Multiple shops with one PostFinance e-Payment account

With the multishop feature you can use one PostFinance e-Payment account for multiple shops and use direct HTTP server-to-server feedback to update the order status. In this way the order will even be updated if the customer leaves the PostFinance website before being redirected to the shop.
