Magento Module

This document presents the steps for integrating the Geidea payment gateway with your Magento store.

Overview

Magento is a premier open-source platform designed specifically for e-commerce needs. Owned by Adobe, Magento is built using the PHP programming language, widely recognized for its security and flexibility. Geidea Payments Online is a gateway module that allows you to accept payments through Geidea. You can easily accept credit cards and other payments through mobile wallet providers or Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) providers.

Integrating our payment gateway with Magento's online stores has never been easier. Through the Magento module in the Marketplace, our payment gateway can be seamlessly integrated with just a few lines of code.

Pre-requisites

You will need a merchant account with Geidea and the following software running in your hosting environment to accept payments using the Geidea payment gateway.

SoftwareVersion
Magento 22.4.0 or greater
Geidea Online Payments Module3.0.0
PHP8.2.0 or greater

❗️

While we make every effort to test software or module or plugin updates rigorously, there is no guarantee that a plugin or module would work seamlessly with your hosting environment. So please back up your website before updating any plugins or modules. This helps you restore your website from backup in case you run into unexpected errors.

Software and plugin or module updates involve programming code changes. The updates may often request upgrades to the server or other hosting software such as PHP as well.
