Getting started

To get started receiving payments with Viva Wallet is fairly straightforward:

1. Register and log in

There are two types of account, one capable of creating ‘pseudo’ transactions and the other one dealing with real money.

Sandbox account

If you need to try out our payment functionality in a test environment first, sign up for a demo merchant account. This is an exact replica of production.

No actual payments can be made within this environment but you can use the test cards, below, to make demo payments of 30p or more.

Log in to demo

If already signed up for a demo account, visit demo.vivapayments.com and click on the Sign in link. Log in using the username and password you already set up. Username is your mobile number but without the opening zero.

Production account

If you need to dive straight in to a fully functional production platform, register for a live merchant account.

Actual transactions are executed in production. The minimum transaction amount is the same as for the demo account.
