uPlexa PrestaShop

A Prestashop addon for accepting uPlexa (UPX)

Compatible with the stable version of Prestashop (1.6.x). And working on 1.7.x


This plugin is rather simple but there are a few things that need to be set up beforehand.

  • A web server! Ideally with the most recent versions of PHP and mysql

  • A uPlexa wallet. You can find the official wallet here

  • Prestashop Prestashop is open source e-commerce engine to run your own shop and this uPlexa addon

Step 1: Activating the plugin

  • Downloading: First of all, you will need to download the module. You can download the latest release as a .zip file from If you wish, you can also download the latest source code from GitHub. This can be done with the command git clone or can be downloaded as a zip file from the GitHub web page.

  • Unzip the file if you downloaded the zip from the master page here.

  • Upload the module and activate it. You can refer the official documentation here

Step 2 : Use your wallet address and connect to a uPlexa daemon

Option 1: Running a full node yourself

To do this: start the uPlexa daemon on your server and leave it running in the background. This can be accomplished by running ./uplexad inside your uPlexa downloads folder. The first time that you start your node, the uPlexa daemon will download and sync the entire uPlexa blockchain. This can take several hours and is best done on a machine with at least 4GB of ram, an SSD hard drive (with at least 40GB of free space), and a high speed internet connection. You can refer the official documentation for running full node from here.

Option 2: Connecting to a remote node

Use a remote node to connect, will automatically connect you to a random uplexa node.

Note: You must run your JSON RPC on the host server of Prestashop against your wallet

Setup your uPlexa wallet-rpc

  • Setup a uPlexa wallet using the uplexa-wallet-cli tool. If you do not know how to do this you can learn about it at

  • Start the Wallet RPC and leave it running in the background. This can be accomplished by running uplexa-wallet-rpc --wallet-file /path/to/wallet/file --password walletPassword --rpc-bind-port 21065 --disable-rpc-login where "/path/to/wallet/file" is the wallet file for your uPlexa wallet. If you wish to use a remote node you can add the --daemon-address flag followed by the address of the node. --daemon-address for example.

Step 4: Setup uPlexa Gateway in Prestashop

  • Navigate to the "Modules and Services" panel in the Prestashop sidebar and identify uPlexa Payments module and click on configure.
  • Update uPlexa Wallet Address and Wallet RPC IP/HOST
  • Note: Wallet RPC IP should start with the protocol and end with port address. Eg.
  • Save the changes and you are good to go.
