The Viva Wallet plugin for CS-Cart 4 enables you to receive payments to your CS-Cart shopping cart via the Viva Wallet payment gateway.


Before you begin:

Setup instructions

Adding the Viva Wallet plugin to CS-Cart 4 consists of the following steps.

Step 1: Create a payment source

To add a new payment source in the Viva Wallet banking app:

  1. Click on Sales in the left navigation:

    Sales submenu
  2. Click on Online payments in the Sales submenu:

    Online payments submenu
  3. Click on Websites / apps in the Online payments submenu:

    Online payments submenu
  4. Click on the Add Website/App button on the right.
    The New Payment Source dialog box is displayed:

    New Payment Source dialog box
  5. Complete the fields as follows:

    • Code – the four-digit number in the top-left of the dialog box is the ‘Source Code’. Make a note of it for use in your plugin.
    • Source Name – give your payment source a source name so you can recognise it in your reports.
    • Linked Wallet – link the payment source to the required wallet.
    • Protocol – if your e-commerce platform uses SSL on the checkout, select https, otherwise use http.
    • Domain Name – enter the domain name to be associated (without the protocol. i.e. use [(www.)yourdomain.com], not http://[yourdomain].com). If the site uses www, it must be specified and visa versa.
    • Integration method – leave this with redirection selected.
    • Company Logo - a PNG of your company logo to be displayed on the Viva Wallet payment page.
    • Success URL – enter [success_url] as described in the plugin instructions.
    • Failure URL – enter [failure_url] as described in the plugin instructions.
  6. Click on the Create button to finish creating the payment source.

Once the payment source moves from a status of ‘Pending’ to ‘Active’ in the Website/Apps list, it’s ready to use. This should take no longer than 24 hours.
