Checkout: Opayo by Elavon

WordPress Shopping Cart plugin: Opayo by Elavon



The Opayo Payment Gateway (previously Sage Pay) extension plugin has the following requirements:



1. Make sure that you have the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin installed and have purchased the Opayo extension.

2. Download the Opayo extension from the downloads management section in a ZIP archive (you may need to log in to your Tribulant Software account in order to access your download).

3. Extract the ZIP archive named in order to be presented with a single folder named checkout-opayo.

4. Upload the checkout-opayo folder to the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation, like seen in the example image below.



Once you have installed the Opayo extension via FTP you need to activate it.

To activate it you need to go to the normal Plugins > Installed Plugins section via your admin sidebar. There you will see the extension as a plugin listed amongst other plugins, look at the screenshot below.

Once activated, you will notice that it is listed in the Checkout > Extensions section via the admin sidebar. As seen in this image below. When you hover over this, it will have an “Activate” option available which needs to be clicked and the red message will change to a green “Installed and Active”



After you installed and activated the Opayo Form Protocol Gateway extension, you can go to Checkout > Configuration > Payment Methods in the plugin where you’ll notice the “Opayo (Form Protocol)” checkbox on the right-hand side, this checkbox needs to be selected and then save the configuration. The Opayo option is now available for your customers to select, but you need to still configure it as seen in the the below screenshot:

1. Title/Caption

Specify a title/caption here which will be used to display this payment method to your customers on the front-end of your shop such as on the billing page, orders history and other sections.

2. Vendor Name

Fill in your Opayo Vendor Name. This is supplied to you by Opayo upon registration. If not, or if you forgot, you can obtain this value from the Form Protocol.

3. Encryption Password

Fill in your Opayo Encryption Password. This is supplied to you by Opayo upon registration. If not, or if you forgot, you can obtain this value from the Form Protocol.

4. Partner ID

This setting is optional and is used if you have the same Opayo account collecting payments from multiple online shops. It’s a way to almost ‘prefix’ the order so it’s easy to identify which payments came from which site. Most the time, this setting will be irrelevant.

5. Connect Mode

There are 3 available connection modes:

  • Live: This is exactly what it says, live payments, everything is done for real, this is when your site is fully functional and you are taking payments online.
  • Test: Almost like the “Live” mode, but it doesn’t actually process payments, it allows you to go through the process to ‘test’ that all is working well.
  • Simulator: This is like the “Test” mode due to the fact that the payments are not charged, but this mode outputs strings as you go through the procedure. It is essentially a debugging mode which shows all possible information from a developer’s point of view.
