Wirecard Shop Plugin for WooCommerce

Installation guide for Wirecard Checkout Seamless

This installation guide shows the step-by-step installation of the plugin to your installed shop system on your web server. Please test your online shop and the configuration of the plugin on a test system before installing the plugin on your production system.

Step 1

Upload the zip file containing the Wirecard Checkout Seamless plugin using the plugin management function of WordPress, or upload it directly to the wp-content/plugins directory of your WordPress installation.

Step 2

After installing the plugin you need to activate the plugin, otherwise the plugin will not be available in WooCommerce. Please proceed to “Plugins” and click “Activate”.

Step 3

Now you need to configure the plugin. Proceed to “WooCommerce” → “Settings” → “Checkout” and click the “Wirecard Checkout Seamless” button.

Step 4

Set your Customer ID and the Secret in the access data. It is also very important to set the “URL to contact page” (e.g. the URL to your imprint), otherwise no payments are possible.

Plugin modes

The following modes can be selected at “Configuration”:

  • Demo: Demo mode configuration. No communication with your financial service provider but only between your online shop and the Wirecard Checkout Server.
  • Test: During test mode there is communication between your online shop and a test bank or demo bank provided for this purpose by the relevant financial service provider. However, the payment process is only simulated and no money is transferred.
  • Test 3D: During test mode with 3-D Secure there is communication between your online shop and a test bank or demo bank provided for this purpose by the relevant financial service provider. However, the payment process is only simulated and no money is transferred.
  • Production: Make sure all of your tests were properly executed before you switch to production mode. After successful testing you can change the plugin mode to “Production”.

By selecting “Demo” or “Test”, customerId, secret, shopId and backendpassword will be used with preset values.

Step 5

In “General settings” you may set additional data like forwarding consumer billing/shipping data and basket data.

You may perform further settings for using Credit Card, SEPA, Invoice and Installment.

PCI DSS SAQ A Compliance

The shop plugin fulfills the requirements for credit card payments set forth in the PCI DSS v3.2.1 which is mandatory for all e-commerce merchants as of January 1st, 2018. Following this standard, a merchant's web site(s) is not allowed to itself handle sensitive credit card specific data. Please visit PCI DSS SAQ A Compliance for Wirecard Checkout Seamless for more information and details.

“SAQ A compliance” is not selected by default, which means that the rather stringent SAQ A-EP is applicable for your online shop and Wirecard Checkout Seamless will not be integrated with the “PCI DSS SAQ A Compliance” feature.

Please note that for using the “PCI DSS SAQ A Compliance” feature for Wirecard Checkout Seamless, “SAQ A Compliance” must explicitly be checked.

To customize the iframe input fields when using the “PCI DSS SAQ A Compliance” feature, enter a full URL to a CSS file on your server into the “Iframe CSS URL” field.

Please note that due to security reasons neither url() functions nor @import directives (e.g. external fonts) are allowed in the CSS file. If they are used they will be ignored.

Select Display card holder field if you wish to display the card holder field for “PCI DSS SAQ A Compliance” and correspondingly the other credit card fields.

Additional settings

Automated deposit: To prevent the expiration of uncaptured payments you may select this feature which enables an automated deposit and day-end closing of payments. Please contact our sales teams to enable this feature. If you select this feature without previous enabling you will get an error message.

Allowing MoTo for group: Since the payment method “Credit Card - Mail Order and Telephone Order” must never be offered to any of your consumers, a specific group can be selected for which this payment method is visible. (This can be found in the Credit Card settings).

Step 6

Finally, verify that the Wirecard Checkout Seamless payment method is displayed on the checkout page:
