General Instructions

  1. Create your merchant account to offer monthly payment options to your consumers directly on your ecommerce from here (http://www.getfinancing.com/signup) if you haven't done it yet.
  2. Download our module from the latest release here (https://github.com/GetFinancing/getfinancing-oscommerce/releases) or all the code in a zip file from here (https://github.com/GetFinancing/getfinancing-oscommerce/archive/master.zip)
  3. Setup the module with the information found under the Integration section on your portal account https://partner.getfinancing.com/partner/portal/. Also remember to change the postback url on your account for both testing and production environments.
  4. Once the module is working properly and the lightbox opens on the request, we suggest you to add some conversion tools to your store so your users know before the payment page that they can pay monthly for the purchases at your site. You can find these copy&paste tools under your account inside the Integration section.
  5. Check our documentation (www.getfinancing.com/docs) or send us an email at (integrations@getfinancing.com) if you have any doubt or suggestions for this module. You can also send pull requests to our GitHub account (http://www.github.com/GetFinancing) if you feel you made an improvement to this module.

Installing the module

  • unzip the .zip file
  • copy over the images and includes trees
    • over ftp:
      • put -R includes trees

Activating the module

  • Go to the admin backoffice
  • At the top, go to Modules > Payment

  • On the right, Click the +Install button

Adding additional needed libraries

Edit your template and add this line between your HEAD tags:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.getfinancing.com/libs/1.0/getfinancing.js"></script>

NOTE: Normally this template is located at: zencart_root/includes/templates/[your_template]/common/

Configure getFinancing Postback url

Log in to the GetFinancing backoffice and set the Postback url to send the messages to:

http://your_site.com/ext/modules/payment/getfinancing/postback.php

Opening the firewall

Your server needs to be able to communicate with the GetFinancing platform. For this to work, the firewall needs to allow outgoing connections on ports 10000 and 10001.

If you do not know how to do this yourself, please ask your hosting provider to do this for you.

Testing

In the complete integration guide that you can download from our portal, you can see various test personae that you can use for testing.

Switching to production

  • Go to the admin backoffice
  • At the top, go to Modules > Payment
  • Select the GetFinancing Payment Module and click Edit Button.
  • In the settings, switch to Production.

Note that after this change, you should no longer use the test personae you used for testing, and all requests go to our production platform.

Module notes

  • when checking out with GetFinancing, the quote only gets converted to an order after the loan has been preapproved. This allows for easy rollback to other payment methods in case the loan is not preapproved.
  • You will be able to change the default order status when GetFinancing Payment Method used at the Module Settings.
