The Montonio for Magento 1 plugin is designed to seamlessly integrate Montonio payment options into your store. Before you start testing payments, you will need to install the Montonio for Magento 1 plugin. Follow the instructions below to get started.

To install the Montonio for Magento 1 plugin, follow the steps here:

1. Download the updated extension package from our website

2. Unzip the folder and upload contents of the folders to their respective locations in your server

3. Clear cache (and optionally log out of admin and log back in if your session was active during installation)

2. Configure Montonio payment methods to your store

When the Montonio for Magento 1 plugin is installed, you need to configure payment methods before testing.

Go to Magento 1 admin panel --> System --> Configuration.

Next, find "Sales" go to "Payment Methods" and choose the Montonio payment options you want to configure.

Enable the payment method by choosing "Yes". Then choose Sandbox environment and paste Sandbox API keys, which you can obtain in our Partner System.

That's it, you are almost ready to accept real payments!

Important note if your Business is already active in the Partner system❗️

To review test order information in the Montonio Partner system - it is important to use Test Mode. Simply toggle the Test Mode button to activate it. Once you see the yellow line at the top of the page - it means you are in the sandbox environment:

To review real order information, simply switch off the Test mode button.

How to start accepting real payments?

This applies if your account has been activated in our Partner System:

NOTE! To start accepting real payments, make sure that you have turned off the test mode and activated each payment method in the Partner System.
