How to add the Yotta Pay Online Checkout module to your WooCommerce or WordPress website?

Before installing and connecting the module make sure you have downloaded the Yotta Pay app, activated the business plan and created an Online Checkout account. If you haven't done it yet, please refer to this page first.

If you have registered already, you can proceed with the installation. You can find the web page of the module here.

Requirements:

  • WordPress Version 5.3 or newer (installed)
  • WooCommerce Version 3.9 or newer (installed and activated)
  • PHP Version 7.0 or newer

There are two types of module installation: manual and automatic.

The latter option is easier, as WordPress/WooCommerce will transfer files automatically and there is no need to leave your browser. To perform an automatic installation of the Yotta Pay Online Checkout module:

  1. Log in to WordPress/WooCommerce admin.
  2. Go to Plugins and click Add New.
  3. Search for the Yotta Pay Payment Gateway plug-in.
  4. Click on Install Now and wait until the plugin will install successfully.
  5. You can activate the plug-in immediately by clicking on Activate Now on the success page. If you want to activate it later, you can do so via Plugins page by clicking Installed Plugins.

The manual installation method involves downloading our plug-in and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress/WooCommerce support contains instructions on how to do this here. To perform a manual installation of the Yotta Pay Online Checkout module:

  1. After you have installed Yotta Pay, go to WooCommerce > Settings.
  2. Click the Payments tab.
  3. Click on Yotta Pay.
  4. Enable Yotta Pay payment method.
  5. Enable / Disable Sandbox mode.
  6. Input your Merchant Identifier and Payment Key.
  7. Click Save changes.

Now you are good to go!
