Setup steps


This manual describes how you can easily integrate Zota with your PrestaShop store. Before you can configure the Zota for PrestaShop module, you need to have API credentials, provided by Zota.


Installing the Zota module

The module can be installed directly from the module catalog and configured in the module manager. The configuration of the module requires obtaining the following credentials from Zota:

Merchant ID – a unique merchant identifier

Merchant secret key – a secret key, used for authentication

Endpoint ID – one or more unique endpoint identifiers to use in API requests

Once you have obtained the aforementioned credentials, and the Zota module is installed, open the module configuration page from the Improve section->Modules->Module Manager and click on the ‘Configure’ button in the Zota module.

General configuration

Select ‘Live mode’ – enabled or disabled.

Zota’s Support Team will clarify if they provided live or test credentials. For live credentials, make sure to enable ‘Live mode.’

2. Enter the merchant ID and the merchant secret key exactly as they were provided by Zota.

Configure payment methods

The Zota Support Team provides endpoints together with the credentials. Payment methods in the module should be adjusted based on the endpoints received.

1. Add a new payment method

2. Configure payment method

Status: active/inactive – This defines if the payment method will be used on the checkout page.

Title – the title stated on the payment method configuration will be shown to the end user on the checkout page

Description – the description stated on the payment method configuration will be shown to the end user on the checkout page

Endpoint – enter the endpoint ID provided by Zota

Position – this field defines the payment method’s position on the end user’s checkout page

Image – this enables you to upload a custom logo for any selected payment method to be displayed on the checkout page


Endpoint currency must be the same as your shop currency; otherwise, the end user cannot complete the order.

The Zota Support Team provides endpoint numbers with the specified currency. If you need any corrections in the endpoints, supported currencies, or payment methods, please contact us.

Customer checkout

Payment method configuration defines what the end user can see on their checkout page.

Configuration overview


Payment details

All the processed orders are available in the Orders section of the PrestaShop back-office. Orders processed via Zota will have an additional section: ‘Zota Payment Details.’

These contain more detailed information about the order itself:

Order ID
Order status
Payment method

You can find reasons for any declines, as well as card details and card type.

Overpayment and underpayment statuses

Some local solutions that Zota offers allow end users to deposit more or less funds than they paid. In order to highlight and track such orders, Zota’s PrestaShop module has two additional statuses:

Underpayment – the end user deposited less than the item costs

Overpayment – the end user deposited more than the item costs

When the status is either ‘Underpayment’ or ‘Overpayment,’ you are able to see the real paid amount in the Zota payment details section.

Underpayment orders can become orders with a payment accepted status or an overpayment status. The Zota module will update statuses automatically.
