Elavon (formerly Opayo or Sage Pay) is an online payments processor for the UK and Ireland businesses. With Elavon, you can accept Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express, and JCB credit or debit cards.

Setting up Elavon payment method

Before integrating the Elavon payment method to your Ecwid store, you need to apply for an Elavon account.

To enable Elavon for your Ecwid store:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to Payments.
  2. Scroll down to More options to accept online payments and choose Elavon from the dropdown.
  3. Enter your Elavon vendor name and encryption password in the corresponding fields. Both credentials are provided by Elavon when you register a merchant account.
  4. (optional) In the Payment method name at checkout, you can change the name of the payment method for customers.
  5. Make sure the Enable this payment method at checkout is turned on.
  6. (optional) Click Set payment instructions at checkout‍ to add any specific note for your customers about the payment method.
  7. (optional) Click Limit availability by shipping method to‍ link the Elavon payment method with any particular shipping method.
  8. Click Save.

Now you are ready to accept payments.

Before going live with Elavon, make sure the currency in your Ecwid store is the same as in your Elavon account. You can set up currency in Settings → General → Regional Settings.

Accepting Elavon payments

After you enable Elavon in your Ecwid store, your customers will be able to choose this payment option at the checkout. As soon as they choose Elavon as the payment option, they will have to fill in their credit or debit card information to finish the purchase.

You can always check what payment method has been used for an order by viewing an order’s details in your Ecwid admin → My Sales → Orders. For the Elavon payment method you will see Elavon in the payment details. You can also easily find all orders paid through Elavon by using the order filters in your store admin.
