Prerequisites for Apruve Services Integration

Before adding Apruve as a payment method in OroCommerce, you need to create an Apruve business account and a dedicated API key via the official Apruve website.

The role in the Apruve system is determined by the way you participate in a particular transaction. There are two different roles:

Role Description
Shopper The person shopping for products or services and selecting the Apruve payment method during the checkout.
Merchant The person who owns the store.

Register a Business Account with Apruve

To register a business account and enable a checkout credit program integration with OroCommerce, follow the next steps:

  1. Contact https://www.apruve.com/ to get started and schedule a time for a conversation with a member of the Apruve Sales Team.

  2. From the Apruve support team, obtain the following credentials:

    • Email Address — Email address used to receive notifications after submitted orders, issued invoices and finalized payments.
    • Password — Password used to log into your Apruve account to view all the details.

    You will use these credentials to set up the integration between Apruve and OroCommerce (see more details on how to set up this integration in the Apruve Payment Method Integration topic).

  3. Log into the https://app.apruve.com with your email address and password generated in the previous step.

  4. Fill in the following sections under Get Started Checklist to enable the credit program for your customer user:

Create a Test Account

The OroCommerce Apruve configuration offers you a possibility to select a test mode to test your store first and ensure that the integration is working properly. Test mode activation should be performed on both sides.

On the OroCommerce side, you need to enable the test mode when setting up the integration by selecting the Test Mode check box (see Apruve Payment Method Integration).

On the Apruve side, you need to follow the https://test.apruve.com link and create a test account. This test account is identical to the https://app.apruve.com regular one but exists only as a test environment that can be used for exploring the Apruve software and its functionality without any risks of the money being charged.

Additionally, the Apruve test account provides the ability to create test credit cards and bank accounts (see Add Bank Account Information for details).

To create an Apruve test account, proceed with the following steps:
