About this guide

This guide will guide you through the steps to setup EBANX as a payment gateway on your WooCommerce store.

How it works

note

Before installing our plugin, you can test by yourself in our demonstration page. Access here and have the same experience as your customer.

Important!

If you are using our old plugin for Woocommerce, please uninstall it before using the new one.

  1. Install the plugin

    There are two installation methods you can choose from:

    Via Browser

    The easiest and quickest option to install the EBANX plugin for WooCommerce is an automatic installation that can be done without leaving your web browser.

    To do it, log in to the WordPress Dashboard and follow the steps:

    • Open your admin page in WordPress. Go to Plugins > Add new and search for "EBANX Payment Gateway".
    • Click on "Install Now" button.
    • Wait and once the plugin is installed, tap on "Activate".
    • On this step, your plugin is already installed. You have to go to EBANX Settings placed on the sidebar to configure your checkout page.
    • Doing this is time to fill out your information. You need to insert your Integration Keys found on your Dashboard Account, check the payment methods and the other options.

    See an example in the video below:

    Via Github

    You can find our repository here. To view step-by-step installation via GitHub instructions click here.

    To install manually, download our plugin and upload it to your web server via an FTP application. Visit the WordPress codex for further instructions.

  2. Get your Integration Key from your Dashboard

    At the EBANX Dashboard, tap on your user name on the right corner, then Account Settings and Integration to find your Integration Keys.

    Look an example of the page you will find:

    Dashboard page with the Keys

  3. Setup your Integration Key

    Go to your WooCommerce and click on EBANX Settings in sidebar admin menu.

    Add the integration key you've found on the EBANX Dashboard. You will need to use different keys in test (sandbox) and production (live) modes.

    Sandbox Public Integration KeyGeneral test mode key. You can do a token operation using this, key instead of the integration key when the request is from the client of your customer (browser, app, etc.). By doing this, you do not have to deal directly with the credit card information of your customer.
    Live Integration KeyOnce you have completed the process of integration with EBANX, you will receive a unique live mode key which will allow you to operate with our services; it is essential to keep all the information safe and not exposed.
    Live Public Integration Key General live mode key. Just like the Sandbox Public Integration Key, you can do a token operation using this key instead of the integration key when the request is from the client of your customer (browser, app, etc.). By doing this, you do not have to deal directly with the credit card information of your customer.
