Miva Merchant supports a large number of payment modules and methods and the exact steps to configure each one varies. The general process looks like this:
In most cases, installing a payment module will add one or more tabs under > Payments. For example, if you install the Amazon Payments module, you'll see a new tab: > Payments > Amazon Payments tab
Some Payment Modules support a number of payment methods. For example, Authorize.Net supports American Express, Visa, MasterCard, etc. When you configure the Payment Module tab, you select the payment methods that you want. The exact steps to configure each Payment Module tab are described throughout this chapter.
