Montonio provides the Magento 1.9 plugin as a compressed zip archive for our partners to install manually. Installation is analogous to other Magento 1 module installations.
1. Installing the Module
2.1. Finding Montonio’s Payment Methods
After successfully installing the module please head to your admin panel to complete the setup.
From the navigation bar, go to System > Configuration.
Then, from the sidebar, click on “Payment Methods”.
There will be two new payment methods: “Montonio Financing” and “Montonio Payments”.
2.2. Configuring Montonio Payments
To use Montonio’s payment solution, find Montonio Payments from the list of payment methods.
To use Montonio Payments in a test environment with mock payments, choose “Sandbox” as the environment. For live payments select “Production”.
2.2.1 Displaying the List of Banks in the Checkout
To display the list of available banks in your checkout, first enter keys for either environment and save the settings. The module then fetches the banks that are available to you and displays them in the configuration page. You can then choose to enable or disable each bank and change their default settings.
Banks are grouped by country and are displayed to the customer based on their selected shipping country. Methods that are available in all countries (such as card payments) will be shown separately and displayed in the checkout regardless of the selected shipping country.
We recommend using the default Title and Logo URL field values and leave the Description field empty.
If you want to group all methods together, set “Group methods in frontend” to “Yes”. The customer will then choose their bank in Montonio’s interface. We recommend setting this to “No” so that the customer would choose the bank in your checkout.
Sometimes Montonio updates the list of available banks. To get the newest list, just update the method’s settings and an updated list will be downloaded from our API.
If you use the Sandbox environment for testing and then choose to switch to
Production, make sure to save the settings again to get the list of banks in Production.
Since Sandbox and Production banks can differ, it is important to refresh the list and check the settings for each bank after changing the environment.
2.3. Configuring Montonio Financing
To use Montonio’s financing solution, find Montonio Financing from the list of payment methods.
To use Montonio Financing in a test environment with mock offers, select the option to allow payments through Sandbox API. For live integration, make sure this option is set to “No”.
2.3.1. Setting up Montonio Financing as a whitelabel solution
To use Montonio Financing as a white label solution (use your own logo, remove references to Montonio) if it is agreed upon between your company and Montonio, make sure to follow these steps:
change the title (e.g “Montonio Financing” -> “My Company Financing”)
optionally, change the description to your liking
setup your checkout logo
if you don’t want to use your own logo, make sure “Show logo in checkout” is set to “No”
otherwise, upload your logo in the “Logo in checkout” option
Save Config (top-right corner of the page)
2.3.2. Configuring Minimum and Maximum order totals
You can configure the minimum and maximum cart totals for displaying the financing option. If the total price of a cart falls outside of the range, the financing method will not be displayed to the customer. We recommend setting the minimum and maximum values to 50 and 15 000 respectively.
2.3.3. Setting Up the Montonio monthly estimate widget
To set up the widget which shows a monthly payment estimate on a product page, follow the steps below.
1. First, head to the Magento Admin Panel and go to the Widgets section which can be found on the navigation bar under CMS.
2. Click on “Add New Widget Instance” on the top-right part of the page.
3. Select “Montonio Monthly Estimate” as the Type of the widget and make sure to pick the theme currently in use on your store.
4. Fill out the title, store view, and sort order.
5. Press "Add Layout Update" and configure where to display the widget.
6. Enable the widget from under "Widget Options" on the sidebar.
7. Setup “Estimate text” for Store View if you need localization for different languages, the info page, and logo URL if using a white label solution.
8. Clear cache (Important!)
After setting up, the Montonio Monthly Estimate Widget will show up on the product screen.
2.4. Localizing the module for different languages
To translate texts into other languages (e.g if your store has multiple language options), then follow the steps below:
1. Select your Store Configuration for the language from the top-left corner of the page.
2. Deselect “Use Website” for the fields to translate (usually Title and Description) and replace the text. Then press on “Save Config” to save changes.
3. Clearing cache
After installing and configuring the plugin, flush Magento cache. This can be done under System -> Cache Management.
