Before you start

Setup instructions

Adding the Viva Wallet plugin to OpenCart 2.1-2.2 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 menu
  2. Click on Online payments in the Sales menu.

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

    Online payments menu

  4. Click on the Add Website/App button in the top right-hand corner:

    Add Website button
    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 URLindex.php?route=payment/vivawallet/callback&success
    • Failure URLindex.php?route=payment/vivawallet/callback&fail
  6. Click on the Create button to finish creating the payment source.

During payment source activation, our team will update your payment source from a status of ‘Pending’ to ‘Active’ in the payment source list. This process normally takes a maximum of one working day after submitting the source.

Step 2: Integrate with your e-commerce store

To start using Viva Wallet as the payment gateway within OpenCart 2.1-2.2:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Extract the contents of the ZIP archive (vivawallet.ocmod.zip) downloaded earlier and upload the files from the upload directory to their corresponding location on the server with ftp/ssh.
    • Using the extension installer, click on the Upload button and browse to the ZIP archive (vivawallet.ocmod.zip).
  2. Overwrite files/folders as necessary (no core OpenCart files will be overwritten).

  3. Log in to the OpenCart admin section and go to Extensions > Payments.

  4. Find Vivawallet in the list of extensions.

  5. Click Install and then Edit the payment module settings.

  6. Use the source code (digit number like 1234) in the payment module settings.
