The Viva Wallet WooCommerce plugin enables you to receive payments to your WooCommerce store on Wordpress via the Viva Wallet payment gateway.

Before you begin:

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 the Sales submenu and select Online payments:

    Online payments submenu
  3. Click on the Online payments submenu and select Websites / apps.

    Online payments submenu
  4. Click on the Add Website/App button on the right to display the 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 index.php?wc-api=wc_vivawallet&vivawallet=success
    • Failure URL – enter index.php?wc-api=wc_vivawallet&vivawallet=fail
  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.
