This article will assume that you're indeed familiar with the payment gateway administration.
Ogone Payment Gateway
Before you can configure Ogone as a payment gateway in your store, you'll first need a few pieces of information from your Ogone administration area. If you haven't already done so, you'll need to create an account with Ogone.
- Ogone Merchant Administration Area (live/production)
- Ogone Merchant Administration Area (development/testing)
Once you have your account, and you're logged in, you'll need to find and be prepared to copy and paste a few pieces of information, beginning with the payment service provider ID. You can get there by navigating to the "Configuration" menu and choosing "Account."
Once there, you'll see your first piece of required information, as highlighted below. This will map to the Payment Service Provider ID in the Hotcakes configuration view discussed below.
Next, go to the "Users" page in the same navigation area.
Here is where you'll create and manage users for your various payment needs. If you don't already have a user created for your store payments, you should consider creating one here. Please keep note of the username and password you specify, because you'll need that in the next step.
If you've already created a user, you can edit it anytime to view the user account information using the "Edit" button on the right of the user row. Then, you'll find the UserID near the top of the user edit view.
Now that you have your Ogone account created and configured, you'll need to enter the details of the Ogone account into your Ogone payment gateway settings view. If you're not sure how to get to this view, please review the payment gateway settings documentation.
|Payment Service Provider ID||You'll find instructions on what value should go here in the documentation above.|
|User ID||This is the UserID specified in the individual user account in Ogone, as mentioned above.|
|Password||This is the Password specified in the individual user account in Ogone, as mentioned above. You'll need to know what this is, as it's not likely to be retrievable.|
|Currency||You'll find a listing of all of the currencies that Ogone currently supports. Choose that currency that you wish for your transactions to be processed in. It doesn't need to match your store currency, but it should.|
|Debug Mode||This setting is useful when you're developing, or when you need to troubleshoot transactions. When checked, the transactions will include additional information to help you determine where and why problems may be occurring.|
|Developer Mode||If checked, this will specify that your payment transaction should go to the "test" version of the Ogone payment gateway. These transactions will only be found there. Real money will not be processed. When unchecked, this will signal that all payments are real, and will be sent to and managed in the production payment gateway administration area.|
Once you've entered your desired Ogone payment gateway settings, click the "Save Changes" button to apply your updates.
