MTN, headquartered in Johannesburg, is Africa's most popular and widely used payment gateway. It serves across 21 countries in Africa and the Middle East, offering voice, data, digital services, and enterprise solutions. The gateway provides the facility to securely send and receive money for the purchase of goods and services. The payment method is widely used in Africa, mainly in Uganda. Meetanshi has developed MTN Pay for Magento 2 to integrate this popular payment gateway with Magento 2 to accept online secure payments.

The extension uses the MoMo API to integrate the payment gateway. MoMo is an Open API, a JSON REST API, which is used by partners to access services in the Wallet platform and helps online merchants to manage payments.

MTN Pay via MoMo for Magento 2 is the perfect choice to serve the buyers from Africa. The extension ensures payment security along with quicker transactions. The customer data is not stored in the Magento 2 server for security purpose. The integration of MTN payment with Magento 2 meets the SAQ A level of PCI compliance.

Account & Pricing

To commence using MTN Pay extension, you need to create a FREE online MoMo account and enter the API user name, API key, and Subscription key in Magento 2 store configuration section for the API integration. You need to contact the MoMo API providers for the pricing plans. 

How Does The Extension Work?

Once you register with MoMo for MTN pay integration, collect the API details to configure the extension from the backend. Enable the extension, set the payment method title, select to show the MTN logo on the checkout page, add API user name, API key, and subscription key you received while MoMo API registration, enter the request payment URL and URL for the token, select countries to allow using this payment method, set the additional instructions to show on the checkout page, enter the sort order of the payment method and save the configuration.

In the frontend, when the customers add products to cart and proceed to pay through the MTN Pay Payment method, they will be requested to enter their MTN phone number and click to place the order. The MTN Pay payment details can be viewed by the customers in their My Account section after the order placement. The admin can view the payment details in the order view backend.

Security & PCI Compliance:

Once the customers add products to cart and proceed to pay using MTN Pay method, they are asked to add the registered MTN phone number on site and click to place the order. The MoMo API checks for the fund in the wallet; captures the amount and pays for the order. The whole process uses MTN mobile number to process the wallet payments using the MTN phone number and no card details are required to capture payments. A process called Tokenization is used to run transactions with the stored amount in the wallet for the payment.

The MTN pay captures the card data for the first time and saves on its own server. MoMo API requests the MTN pay for the payment from the wallet every time a customer requests a transaction. The sensitive customer card data is never stored on the Magento 2 server. The extension lets your customers pay with the registered MTN mobile number and thus assures payment security.

We are often asked about PCI compliance. PCI compliance is a complex and multifaceted issue, covering every aspect of your business. We can't guarantee that your business is PCI-compliant. That depends on your server, passwords, business processes, regular security scans, other payment methods, and a lot more. What we can tell you is that this extension will not prevent you from being PCI compliant. We don't log confidential cardholder data or do anything else that would bring you under scrutiny. The integration of the payment gateway with Magento 2 meets the SAQ A level of PCI Compliance. The customers' card details are neither entered into nor stored on Magento 2 server for security.
