How to set up?
First, send a ticket to your On Boarding Specialist sharing your chosen payment method, after you get in touch with Checkout.com and receive your credentials, follow steps below:
- From your admin panel go to “System”>”Advanced”>”Setting”
- Click on “Payment methods” under “Sales”
- Click on “Checkout.com credit card (Non PCI version)” tab to expand, and then complete the following fields:
- From “Enabled drop down menu select “Yes”
- In the “Title” text field, type in the title that you want to show to your customers on the checkout page ex. Credit Card
- In the “Private shared key” text field, add the key that should be provided from Checkout.com
- Add the secret key that should be provided from Checkout.com in the “Secret Key” text field. This is used to encrypt the information between your store’s checkout page and Checkout.com
- Add the public key that should be provided by Checkout.com in the “Public Key” text field. This is used to encrypt the information between your store’s checkout page and Checkout.com
- “Payment Action”: There are two options, first is “Authorize only”: means that on the checkout page, only the card is authorized and the necessary amount of money is blocked or captured, but it’s up to the merchant to manually hit a button to capture the amount – only then is the money sent by VISA. This is a risk mitigation tool that allows the merchants to do follow-ups with their customers and decide whether or not they’re comfortable with the order. Second is “Authorize and Capture”: means that on the checkout page the customer completes the transaction straight away – it’s a straight purchase and the merchant doesn’t need to hit the capture button manually.
- “Order Status when capture”: Set it to “Processing”.
- “New order status”: Set it to “Processing”.
- “Payment from Applicable Countries”: If you want to make Checkout.com an available option to all customers from all countries, select “All Allowed Counties”, if not select “Specific Countries”.
- “Payment from Specific Countries”: Select the specific countries that you want to appear in the checkout page. (To select countries, click on CMD/Shift on your keyboard)
- Endpoint URL mode: When going on live production, Endpoint URL mode should be set to “live”. For demo store mode set it to “Sandbox”.
- Once you finish click on “Save Config” button.
