Introduction

Walley Checkout for WooCommerce was previously known as Collector Checkout for WooCommerce and there may be some remnants of this in the documentation or plugin. For instance in the code snippets and/or some of the settings.

Since of version 4.0.0 of the Walley Checkout plugin, the WooCommerce order will now be created first (in Pending status), then the Walley order is placed, and finally the WooCommerce order is updated to Processing status. This update is more compatible with other WooCommerce plugins.

The new checkout flow also means that Pending orders can be visible in WooCommerce, where the payment has not been finalized in Walley (for example card payment where there was not enough funds on the card). This is part of the general WooCommerce checkout flow, and it does not implicate that something is wrong. It is just a new scenario for the Walley Checkout payment gateway. Read more about the checkout flow rewrite here.

Walley Checkout for WooCommerce is a plugin that extends WooCommerce, allowing you to take payments via Walley.

Walley Checkout does not support the Checkout block i WooCommerce.

Sign up with Walley


To get started with Walley Checkout, you need to create an account with Walley. If you’re not a customer yet you can register here.


Testing


If you want to try the checkout before installing it in your store you can checkout our demo store here.

To make test purchases you also need customer test data. This information can be found here.


Installation


  • Login to WordPress Admin. Navigate to Plugins → Add New (in the left column menu).
  • Click on the Upload Plugin option, then click Browse to select the zip file from your computer. Once selected, press OK and press the Install Now button.
  • Activate the plugin.

Required WordPress & WooCommerce settings


  • Installing HTTPS (a SSL/TLS certificate) in your web store is strongly recommended.
  • Make sure that you have enabled pretty permalinks in your WordPress installation. Otherwise callbacks from Walley back to your store won’t work and orders will not be updated with the correct order status/information.
  • To get the order total to match between WooCommerce and Walley you need to configure WooCommerce to display prices with 2 decimals. More information about displaying of prices and how it can cause rounding issues can be found in this article.
  • You need to enable Guest Checkout (or let WooCommerce generate user name and password automatically when creating an account) in your store, otherwise the order will not be finalized in WooCommerce when paying with Walley.
  • It’s recommended to add/use SKU on products (even on product variants). This is needed to keep track of purchased products in orders between the two systems and to make refunds working properly.
  • Your checkout page must use the Classic Shortcode block. Walley Checkout does not support the Checkout block at this point. You can read more about this here

Checkout process flow in the plugin


Since Walley Checkout is an embedded checkout solution, order/cart data & customer data is passed between WooCommerce and the payment service provider in a different way than a payment method in the standard WooCommerce checkout.The checkout process looks like this:

  1. The checkout page is requested.
  2. If Walley Checkout is the default (or selected) payment method a request containing merchant and cart data is sent to Walley.
  3. Walley respond with information about a new transaction session.
  4. The checkout page is rendered and the Walley checkout iframe is displayed.
  5. The customer identifies herself in Walleys Checkout.
  6. A javascript event is triggered so that:
    – The checkout is paused.
    – Customer address data (country and postal number) is fetched from Walley.
    – If needed the cart is recalculated and an cart update is sent to Walley.
    – The checkout is resumed.
  7. When the customer clicks the Pay button in Walley Checkout iframe, the checkout page is being reloaded, the WooCommerce checkout form is being populated with customer address data and the form is then posted.
  8. An order is created in WooCommerce.
  9. Order status is changed to Processing (by triggering the WooCommerce function payment_complete()) and an email about the new order is sent to the customer.

Order management


When an order is created in WooCommerce and a reservation number exists in Walleys system, you have the possibility to handle the order management in Walley directly from WooCommerce. This way you can save time and don’t have to work in both systems simultaneously.

Read more about order management in Walleys system directly from WooCommerce in the Walley Checkout Order management documentation.


Currencies


The plugin itself has no limitations regarding currency.

However, please note that there can be limitations in the agreement you have with Walley.

When it comes to questions regarding supported currencies you should always talk to your payment provider. The exception is when the plugin in fact do have limitations.

You can read more about this at the Walley website.


Customize the checkout page


In some scenarios there might be a need for modifying the checkout page. Learn more how you can Customize the Walley checkout page here.


Compatibility with themes & plugins


  • Walley Checkout uses its own template file for displaying the checkout page and should work with most themes. However, the plugin is only tested with the Storefront theme and we do not guarantee that it will work with other themes. Common situations when errors occur are:
    – Themes/plugins with customized template files for WooCommerce checkout page.
    – Themes/plugins that modifies the checkout into a multi step checkout.

Krokedil and Walley do not offer help with adapting your theme or plugin within regular support.
