New update causes problems

OpenCart just released their new verson 2.2, but unfortunately we don't support this version currently. Keep an eye on this page for further updates.

1. Create an ePay account

You need a test account to try the module. It’s free to sign up, and it only takes a few minutes. Once your account is created, you’ll receive a unique test merchant number for testing.

Get a free account

Please state that you want a test account in the comment field in step 2. You can disregard prices etc.

When you’ve tested the module and are ready to accept real payments, we’ll upgrade your test account to a production account. Doing it this way means you don’t have to create a new ePay account.

2. Install the ePay module in OpenCart

Notice: Please make a backup of your website before beginning installation.

First off, download ePay’s payment module.

Download module for OpenCart 2

Unzip the file to your hard drive. 

Copy the folders admin and catalog you just saved on your computer to your OpenCart installation. This will overwrite these two folders on the server. Please note that no existing OpenCart files are overwritten. 

Log in to you OpenCart administration, and go to the menu Extensions -> Payments (please see image 1).

Find the ePay module, and press the ‘Install’ button on the right (see image 2). ePay’s payment module is now installed.

3. Activate the module in OpenCart

The payment module is installed and must be activated before use.

Press ‘Edit’ by the ePay module in the menu Extensions -> Payments.

Put the “Status” at Enabled.

Enter your merchant number in the field “Merchant number”. It is either a test or production number.

By “Order Status” you enter a status for paid orders, e.g. ‘Processing’. 

Press ‘Save’ at the top of the page when you’re done.

4. Test the payment module

When testing the module, all you have to do is complete a purchase as if you were a regular customer. Choose ePay Payment Solutions at checkout – you can change this name in the field “Payment name” in the module settings. 

In image 5 below you can see an example of ePay’s payment window. You can change the logo and company information at the top of the window. Do this from the menu Settings -> Payment window in the ePay administration. 

The customers choose between all the payment methods activated on your ePay account. When the payment is completed, and the payment window closed, the customers are sent to an order confirmation page which you can define in OpenCart (see image 6).

The payment is completed. You have received the order, and ePay has received the payment information.
