1. Important notes

This chapter provides you with important information about integrating the payment provider in plentymarkets.

1.1. Payment process

The payment method is selected in the online store. Afterwards, the customer is forwarded directly to Skrill. The additional content is made available in an iframe. The customer enters their data here. In other words, the data is not entered in the online store, but rather in Skrill. Once the customer has entered and confirmed the data, they will be forwarded to the order confirmation page.

1.2. SSL certificate

You need to have an SSL certificate in order to correctly use the payment method. The Skrill payment page is already secured with SSL.

Ask your bank

Ask your bank whether it can process payments with iframe before you integrate this payment method.

Open a seller account on Skrill first. For business registration, click the Sign up now button. Follow the next steps to complete the registration process. In one of these steps, you will be asked to enter a secret word that is used to encrypt payments. You need this secret word to set up the access data in plentymarkets. This secret word should be different from your login password and may contain no more than 10 characters. The secret word may only consist of lower-case letters and numbers. It may not contain special characters.

Familiarise yourself with the history section in your Skrill account as well. Later, you will be able to download your transaction history as an Excel table here and process it as needed.

3. Setting up Skrill in plentymarkets

Skrill uses a two-stage security concept for activating accounts. Stage 1 is the verification of your email address. Stage 2 is the verification of your personal data. Proceed as described below to set up the interface to Skrill.

Setting up the Skrill interface:

  1. Go to System » Orders » Payment » Methods.

  2. Place a check mark next to the setting Also show inactive.

  3. Open the folder International.

  4. Click on Skrill.
    → The Interface tab will open.

  5. Enter the email address that you received from Skrill.

4. Activating payment methods

Set up and activate the Skrill payment methods in the Settings tab of the payment methods. In addition, check the settings for Permitted payment methods in the customer classes and for Blocked payment methods in the shipping profiles.

Changing the payment method after an order was placed

It is not possible for a customer to change the payment method within the my account area of the online store after they have placed an order and before they have received a confirmation of payment. A corresponding note is displayed in the my account area. If the payment was denied, the payment method can be changed.
