Magento

Vesta’s extensions for Magento add a payment form to your checkout page and makes the following Vesta services available as part of your Magento storefront, depending on your Vesta subscription:

  • Fraud Protection - Adding Vesta’s fraud protection services to your eCommerce platform makes it easy to approve more safe transactions and reject only the transactions that are fraudulent.
  • Payment Processing - If you use Vesta as your payment processor, our Magento extension enables accepting payments using Vesta and all of the additional benefits that come with our payment processing service.

Vesta offers two different extensions for Magento. Be sure to install the correct extension depending on your Vesta subscription:

  • Guarantee - The Guarantee extension adds Vesta’s fraud protection services to your Magento storefront. It is available for all Vesta subscribers who use the Magento eCommerce platform.
  • Guarantee + Processing - The Guarantee + Processing extension adds Vesta’s fraud protection services and makes it possible to use Vesta as your payment processor. It is available for Vesta Acquiring subscribers.

Installment Payments
For customers in Latin America, our Guarantee + Processing extension for Magento now adds fraud protection to Installment Payments. Installment payments come with unique risks. Eliminating installment payment-related fraud can lead to increased sales and decreased costs for your business.

If you are an existing Magento customer, and you want to add Vesta’s fraud protection services to your storefront, start by creating a Vesta account on our Partner Portal.

This page describes how the extensions work with your storefront and provides detailed installation instructions, which apply to both extensions. The Setup section defines the settings that you will enter in the Magento admin panel, which are unique to the Guarantee and Guarantee + Processing extensions.

How It Works

The Vesta extension for Magento storefronts allows you to accept credit and debit card payments on your Magento store by embedding a payment form on the Magento checkout page. When a customer places an order on your store, Vesta analyzes the transaction for indications of fraud and decides whether to submit the transaction for processing based on options that you set. The steps below describe the process in detail:

  1. Your customer places items in their shopping cart and chooses to check out. Your Magento store displays the Vesta payment form along with the standard billing and shipping address fields.

  2. Your customer enters their credit or debit card information and confirms the purchase. The transaction details are sent to Vesta along with behavioral and device details that were collected while your customer shopped.

  3. Vesta analyses the data for indications of fraud and assigns the transaction a risk score.

  4. If the risk score meets the criteria that you set, Vesta submits the transaction to your payment processor for approval, and your customer is notified that the purchase was successful.

    If the transaction is too risky, Vesta rejects the transaction, and your customer is alerted that the purchase was not completed.

Details about the risk of each transaction submitted to your store and tools for handling chargeback claims will be available in the Vesta portal. See the Partner Portal page for more information. Information about your products and sales will still be available in your Magento dashboard.

To add the Vesta extension to your Magento store, visit the Magento marketplace to obtain the Vesta extension. Then, use the Composer package manager to update the dependencies in your Magento project. The Installation section of this page provides detailed instructions for adding the extension to your Magento site.

Before installing the extension, you will need locate details about your Vesta account, which you will enter in the Magento dashboard during Setup. Review the Requirements section for more information.

Requirements

To use the Magento extension you must have accounts with both Vesta and Magento, and you must have installed the Vesta extension on your Magento account. See the Installation section for details about installing the extension.

You will need the look up following information in vPortal to set up the Magento extension in the Sandbox environment:

  • Account Name - Your Vesta account name, which is available in the Vesta portal.
  • Password - Your Vesta account password, which is available in the Vesta portal.
  • API Base Path - The base path that your site will use to access Vesta’s API.
  • Data Collector URL - The URL that will be used to send behavioral data to Vesta.
  • Merchant Routing ID - A routing ID for submitting transactions for processing.

When you are ready to move your application to the production environment, your Vesta Onboarding Specialist will provide you with updated values for the Account Name, Password, and Merchant Routing ID. The production values for the API Basepath and Data Collector URL are available in vPortal.

You must also decide what level of fraud risk that you are willing to accept. In the Magento dashboard, you will define the highest level of risk that you are willing to accept based on the Vesta risk score. Vesta’s risk scores assess a transaction on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the safest. In the Magento settings you can select one of the following options:

  • Capture Low Risk Payments – You will only accept transactions with a risk score higher than 4.
  • Capture Medium Risk Payments - You will accept transactions with a risk score of 3 or higher.
  • Capture High Risk Payments – You will accept transactions with a risk score of 2 or higher.

See the Setup section that applies to your extension for details about where to enter the information defined above.
