In your shop administration go to Settings > Payment.
Select Avarda from the payment methods at the top.
Go to the Settings tab for the new payment method.
Fill in the Site code and Site password fields you received from Avarda.

Once you've set up the settings for the payment method, you need to still make the payment method visible to your customers on the General tab. In addition, under Settings >> Payment you will find a list of the payment methods used in the shop, where you can hide other payment methods if necessary.
Finally, test the operation of the payment method on the customer side of the shop, at least until you are directed for the actual payment.
FAQ - Frequently asked questions
I received an order in my shop, without the "paid" status. What does it mean?
All orders paid with Avarda that come to the shop should be approved for payment and always have the "paid" status. If the "paid" status is missing, then the payment information has not been fully received for the order. You may want to check that the payment is normally visible in your payment service.
If the payment is otherwise displayed normally, then the paid status can be added manually to the order and the order will be processed normally.
