Configure a Payment Method

  1. Select Stores/Configuration: Configure_1

  2. Go to Sales and scroll down to Payment Methods: Configure_2

  3. Select the payment method you want to configure (e.g. Wirecard PayPal).

Minimum Configuration Options

  • Enable/Disable payment method.
  • 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.
  • Title:
    Name of payment method as displayed during checkout.
  • 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 Capture

Two payment actions are generally available:

  • Authorization: The amount will be authorized only. You need to capture it manually later.
  • Capture: 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.

Payment Method Logos

The Wirecard Magento 2 Extension is equipped with default images of payment method logos/icons. You can replace them with your own payment method images:

  1. Requirement: The Wirecard Magento 2 Extension must be installed on your server.
  2. On your server, go to your Magento 2 installation directory.
  3. Go to the view/frontend/web/images subfolder.
  4. Replace the logo/icon there with your own.

A subsequent update of the Wirecard Magento 2 Extension overwrites all customized images with the latest standard version.
After an update you have to change your payment method logos/icons again.
