Configuring a Payment Method

To access the payment-method-specific configuration page,

  1. Select Modules/Modules & Services.

  2. Click the Installed modules tab to display the Wirecard PrestaShop Module.

  3. Use the Configure button (on the right) to access the Payment Method Settings: Configuration

Minimum Configuration Options

  • Enable/Disable:
    Click 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.
  • Title:
    Name of the payment method as displayed during checkout.
  • 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.
  • Credentials (Username, Password) for Wirecard server connection (Wirecard Payment Gateway):
  • For going live, you will receive credentials after having concluded a Wirecard contract.
  • Get your 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 Capture, or
  • Authorization only, or
  • Capture only.

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

Payment Method Logos

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

  1. Requirement: The Wirecard PrestaShop Module must be installed on your server.
  2. On your server, go to wirecardpaymentgateway/views/img/paymenttypes.
  3. Replace the logos/icons there with your own.

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

You can’t perform that action at this time.
