Configuring a Payment Method

To access the payment-method-specific configuration page, select
System/Configuration/Payment Methods and select the specific Wirecard payment method you want to configure (e.g. Wirecard Credit Card): Configuring a Payment Method

Minimum Configuration Options

  • Title:
    Name of the payment method as displayed during checkout.
  • Enable/Disable:
    Set "Enabled" to "Yes" to activate this payment method for your consumers. If you disable it later on, you can still do post-processing operations for all transactions performed while enabled.
  • Merchant Account ID (MAID):
    Enter the MAID as provided in your Wirecard contract. You receive a unique MAID for each payment method.
  • Secret Key:
    Enter the Secret Key as provided in your Wirecard contract. You receive a unique Secret Key for each payment method.
  • Sort Order: Determines the order in which the payment methods are displayed to the consumer. The higher the number, the further down the payment method will be displayed.
  • Credentials (Username, Password) for Wirecard server connection (Wirecard Payment Gateway):
    • For going live, you will receive credentials after having concluded a Wirecard contract.
    • Click here for test credentials.

Authorization and Purchase

Two payment actions are generally available:

  • Authorization: The amount will be authorized only. You need to capture it manually later.
  • Purchase: The amount will be deposited immediately and automatically.

Depending on the payment method, you can execute either:

  • Authorization and Purchase or
  • Authorization only or
  • Purchase only.

For further payment-method-specific configuration, go to the respective payment method configuration page.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
