VirtueMart 3 - Viva Payments with instalments


Available Options

This VivaWallet VirtueMart 3 payment gateway is designed for making credit card payments through Viva Payments.

This payment gateway uses the redirect method where the user is redirected to the processing site (VivaPayments) to make the actual payment.

After payment verification, Viva Payments notifies the merchant's e-commerce site and returns the customer back to it. This process is transparent for the customer. The merchant can then connect to his Viva Payments backoffice to administer his payments.

This payment module supports instalments.

Licensed per domain, write the domain name(s) on payment page.
You will receive the module by e-mail after your payment.
