1. Register a Wallee account
Register a wallee account here.
Enter your billing information and select a plan. To integrate with a shopping cart, your shop system, you will need a minimum Basic plan. Please note, your account is in a trial period of three months or until you activate it. Wallee in Test Mode, means all transactions made from your shop will only be a test transaction. You need to activate the account before you can process live transactions.
Your account is now created, please proceed with the basic configuration with our Setup Assistant. Pick your Sales Channel here.
2. Choose your desired payment methods
Attention: this step is just a configuration for each of those payment methods. You can create a request for an acquiring contract which is sent to Wallee only, not to the acquirers. If you have existing acquiring contracts, please see step 6 on how to link them to your account. We do not only offer configuration for credit card acceptance but also for local payment methods as well as invoices (ISR invoices).
3. Reconciliation / Accounting
You can choose to activate this here or it can be found as a feature which you can enable under Space/Features.
This feature will make sure that we keep record of your sales in a subledger. Meaning we are going to import the payout files of the acquirer and match them with your transaction data. You can use this to reconcile the payments you received on your bank account. More Information can be found in the Help Center.
4. Integrate with your Shopping Cart
Select your shopping cart from the list of integrations. If your shopping cart is Shopify, an additional step is required: installing and configuring the payment gateways. Please refer to our documentation on how to install and configure your payment gateways.
All other shopping carts are synchronised automatically.
5. Your account and space is created
In the default setup, each account is linked to one space. You can link your space to one shop. A space is the data container that stores configurations and data to the linked shop. Please read our documentation to learn more about “Accounts” and “Spaces” here.
Please activate your account when you are ready to go live. The activation step requires you to agree to our terms and conditions, provide your credit card details and confirm the activation. Navigate to Account/Plan to activate.
6. Users and Roles
You can create additional “Users” and “Roles” for colleagues and/or technical partners to gain access to your Account and/or Space. Please refer to our “Permission Concept” in our documentation here. Navigate to Account/Users.
7. Get Your Credit Card Acquiring Contract
To configure an active contract, navigate to Space/Payment/Configuration/Processor. If you have active contracts with either SIX Payment Services or Concardis, please get in touch with our support. For other acquiring partners, please select the acquirer from the drop down menu.
If you need an acquiring contract with Concardis for VISA, Mastercard, Maestro and VPay, please register your organization: in Account/Organization and create a Contract Request. Please fill all the mandatory fields according to your commercial registry. Let us know once you filled out everything. This will take a few days. The merchant contracts for those payment methods will be sent to you for review and signing. Please return the contracts duly signed according to the commercial register (for individual companies not registered, the business owner shall duly sign the contracts).
Additional documents and information might be needed by the acquiring partner to process your request. All documents will be forwarded to our acquiring partners for processing and activation.
8. Other Payment Methods
Unlike with credit/debit cards, the other payment methods require a different activation process. We kindly ask you to get in touch with acquirers directly.
PayPal: Simply link the processor with PayPal Homepage
TWINT – The request can be made directly out of your Wallee space. Read the documentation here.
PostFinance Acquiring – for Post Card/E-Finance. The request can be made directly out of your Wallee space. Read the documentation here. After you filled out the application you will receive a contract from PostFinance that needs to be filled about. Once we receive the contract numbers we can add them to the processor and you can start to process transactions.
AMEX - Swisscard processes the AMEX payments for terminal devices. Please contact our support agent for the contract. You will need to configure the Swisscard processor in your wallee space.
To set up your processors, navigate to Space/Payment/Configuration/Processor:
PayPal: Click on the Link button, to link your PayPal business account to your Wallee. Log in with your PayPal credentials, you will then be rerouted back to your Wallee space. You will see that your account has been successfully linked.
TWINT: Click Switch to Live. A window will appear where you can either create the request by clicking the blue link, or you can enter the Merchant ID (UUID) into the field. The Merchant ID is provided by TWINT in your activation.
Invoice with Factoring
For invoice with factoring, we work with MF Group in Switzerland and Ratepay in Germany. If you need a contract, please contact them directly. Configure MF Group in your Space/Payment/Configure/Processor:
MF Group: MF Group Processor (PowerPay)
Click on Setup Contract and fill out the form. You will receive a contract. All the necessary data will be automatically exchanged between MF Group and wallee - no further configuration needed.
Once your contract is activated, you will be informed by MF Group by email. The configuration in wallee is done by one of our support agents. To activate reconciliation for your MF Group transactions, enter your IBAN number and the agreed Frequency (by default it is bi-weekly):
For invoice without factoring, navigate to Space/Payment/Configure/Processor and choose the following processor:
PostFinance: ISR Processor with PostFinance
