Instructions for Miva 9

For a how-to installation video, see Installing Amazon Pay on Miva 9 on YouTube.

  1. Register for an Amazon Pay account.
  2. Log in to your Miva dashboard.
  3. From the Quicklinks menu, click Payment.
  4. Click Add/Remove Modules.
  5. Find the Amazon Pay module and click Install.
  6. Copy the credentials from your Amazon Pay account into the module. You can find these values on Seller Central under Integration > MWS Access Key.
    1. Copy your Seller ID to the Merchant ID field in Miva.
    2. Copy your Access Key ID to the Access Key field in Miva.
      If you do not see your Access Key ID, you may need to create it. Follow the prompts on the page in Seller Central.
    3. Copy your Secret Access Key to the Secret Key and Confirm Secret Key fields in Miva.
  7. Adjust the remaining configuration options for the module in Miva to suit your business needs:
    1. Currency — The default is U.S. dollars.
    2. Transaction Timeout — We recommend using the default value of 0.
    3. Polling Interval — We recommend using the default value of 30.
    4. Instantly Capture Payment — Check this box if you want to capture payment on order. The default (unchecked) will capture when your order is shipped in Miva. If you use a 3rd party order management solution, you may want to test to confirm that shipping orders from that solution will capture the payment for orders placed using Amazon Pay.
    5. Server — this toggle setting indicates whether Amazon Pay is operating in Production or Sandbox mode.
      • Sandbox — This is the test mode for Amazon Pay that allows orders to be placed without incurring charges. To use the Sandbox mode you need to set up an Amazon Pay Sandbox account. For more information see the Creating test accounts in Seller Central for Amazon Pay video.
      • Production — This mode makes Amazon Pay live on your site for customer purchases.
  8. Test the button on your site.

Note: After testing is complete be sure to set the server to Production to enable the module.

Warning: Be careful not to copy leading or trailing spaces with the values from Seller Central. This often causes errors when testing Amazon Pay.
