  2. If you are testing with Test Data mode in Pay Merchant dashboard, please select Test in API mode. Otherwise, please select Live.

  4. Navigate back to merchant dashboard, go to Integraion > Webhooks tab.

  5. Click the Add Webhook button and then paste the Webhook Url copied into Payload URL, then a signature secret for webhook is generated.

  6. Paste this signature secret in the Configure page of PrestaShop Pay addon.

Note: Please make sure to select Test in API mode if you are testing, and please make sure you input the keys and secrets correctly as they are different between Test mode and Live mode.

Step 4: Verify the flow

At this point, Pay is fully integrated with your PrestaShop store. But it is recommended to try the payment flow at least once.

Refer here for how to complete a test payment.

When Pay approves the payment, the checkout window will indicate that the payment has been approved and your order status will also be updated.

  1. Log in to the merchant account

  2. Make sure the Test Data button at the menu bar is switched off.

  3. Click Integration tab on Dashboard menu bar, follow Step 1 of this guide to generate a new set of publishable key and secret key values for Live Data mode.

  5. Paste secret key, publishable key and webhook signature secret on the Configure page using the values you obtained for Live Data mode.
