Setup Ecwid Payments

Follow these steps:

1. Make sure that the store country and currency is set to US or Canada and US dollar and CA dollar accordingly. The screenshots below show the country and currency set to US and US dollar, still the setup steps are the same for both US and Canada. 

2. Add the real store name in your Ecwid Control panel on Settings → General → Store profile page. This information will show up on your customers' credit card statements when they process a sale, so it's important that this field has the real name of your store.

3. Enter your Ecwid control panel and go to System Settings → Payment page. Locate "Credit card" under Payment Methods and click "Change" link under Payment Processor column. In the drop-down box find and choose Credit Card: Ecwid Payments. A setup window will open:

Click "Enable Now". You will get an activation link to your email address. Along with the activation link you will get “Ecwid Payments via WePay” email to confirm your account. The “Confirm” button in the email will direct to the control panel to complete the payment method settings.

4. On the next settings screen you will be prompted to verify your account information. Click Verify Now:

5. Fill in your account details and click Submit:

6. The next step is to connect your bank account. Click "Link your Account" and enter your bank account details and click "Submit":

That's it. Ecwid Payments is setup in your store. 

FAQ and Troubleshooting

What do I need to do to start running real transactions?

It will take 24 hours to verify your account information, after that you are ready to process payments.  

What are the fees to accept credit and debit card payments?

The processing fees are taken from the full order transaction amount and depend on the Ecwid plan you are on. Please find the rates below:
