Magento installation

Start accepting payments on your Magento installation today. Get started by following this simple procedure.

Please note:

Magento extensions can open issues that require significant experience with PHP to identify and solve. For this reason, we encourage users to apply Magento’s default theme unless working with a developer.

Step 1: Download and install the extension

  1. Download the extension from GitHub.
  2. Upload the contents of the extension to...
    [Root Directory]/app/..
    [Root Directory]/lib/..

Step 2: Configuring the extension

  1. Activate the extension.
    a. Login to your Magento backend and flush the Magento Cache.
    b. Navigate to System > Configuration > Payment Methods.
    Checkout.com credit card (PCI Version and Non-PCI Version)
    should be visible on the Payment List — select it.
  1. Select which version fits to your business:
    a. If your server is PCI compliant — enable Checkout.com Credit Card (PCI version).
    b. If your server is not PCI compliant (most merchants) — enable Checkout.com Credit Card (Non-PCI version).

Unsure of your PCI status?

In this case, like the majority of our merchants, you are probably not fully PCI compliant and should choose No to enable Checkout.js.

  1. Enter your public keys.
    a. Click Edit to edit the settings.
    b. Enter your Private API Key and your Public API Key in the related fields.

Can't find your Keys?

Your Checkout.com account manager can provide these to you.

  1. Decide which transaction method is best for your business:
    a. Authorize Only
    Transactions will only authorize and must be captured manually.
    b. Authorize and Capture
    Transactions are authorized and captured automatically. With this setting, an auto-capture time can be set. Auto-capture time defines how long after an authorization that a capture will be made — the default time is 0.

  2. Finally, click Save Config to save the configuration.
    Installation Complete

Customers should now be able to pick Checkout.com as a payment method.
