PrestaShop Module

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

Overview

PrestaShop is a freemium, open-source e-commerce platform. It is designed for small to large online merchants to set up their e-commerce sites seamlessly. 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 PrestaShop's online stores has never been easier. Through the PrestaShop module, 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
PrestaShop8.0.2
Geidea Online Payments module2.0.0
PHP7.4 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.

After you successfully set up your PrestaShop store, follow the following steps
