Account and Pricing

To commence using YUP payments for Magento 2, Create a FREE merchant account in YUP. Integrate Magento 2 store with the payment gateway using the merchant ID and Gateway URL received during the registration. You need to contact the YUP API providers for the pricing plans. 

How Does the Extension Work?

Enable the extension from the backend. Set the custom title of the payment method for the frontend display. Enable the option to show the YUP logo in the frontend. Enable the sandbox mode for testing. Enter the merchant ID. Also, enter the gateway URL provided by the YUP payment gateway. Select the applicable countries to allow using this payment method. Admin can enter an additional message to show it on the checkout page.

On the checkout page, once the customer selects YUP payments and continues to payment, he is redirected to the YUP Payment gateway. Here, the secret code has to be entered and confirmed. The customer has to request the verification code on the registered mobile number. The payment is confirmed only after entering the received authentication number. The payment details can be seen once the payment is confirmed.

The customers can also check the payment details in the "My Account" section. Moreover, the admin can check these details in the Order View backend.

Security Features:

Using the YUP payment method, whenever customers add products to cart and proceed to checkout, they get redirected to the hosted payment gateway page to enter the security code, confirm payments using the verification code received in the registered mobile number and place the order. The whole payment process is hosted by the YUP Payment Gateway, and customers' card details are never stored in Magento 2 server, and thus it ensures a secured payment process.
