The Viva Wallet plugin for Shopify enables you to receive payments to your Shopify store via the Viva Wallet payment gateway.


Prerequisites

  • You need to request a Store Token   from us which we’ll email back to you within 24 hours. Your 32-character Store Token will contain a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols. If you own multiple stores you can use the same token to connect these to the Viva Wallet payment gateway.
  • Make a note of your Merchant ID which can be found in the Viva Wallet banking app.
