Reference Guide


Use the Payment Settings section to configure the payment options that you want to offer customers during checkout. You must enable at least one payment option or there will be no way for customers to purchase items in your store. Free items that you offer are an exception. See Skip Shipping/Payment Selection for Free Orders.

To see all of the payment methods that you have access to in your store:

  • Go to Menu> Payment > Add/Remove Modules tab > Available Modules section.
  • Payment Settings

Obsolete Payment Options

Over time, some payment options are dropped from Miva Merchant.

  • If the vendor (such as Amazon) still has the payment option, but Miva Merchant has a new interface to it, the old payment option is marked as "Legacy". You can continue to use legacy payment options, but they won't be maintained in future releases of Miva Merchant.
  • If the vendor has discontinued the payment option, it is marked as "Discontinued" in Miva Merchant. Vendors usually discontinue a payment option when they replace it with something else and there's usually a grace period to give you time to switch over. You can continue to use discontinued payment options for as long as the vendor allows, but they won't be maintained in future releases of Miva Merchant.

Changes in PR8 Update 7

Beginning in PR8 Update 7 the following payment options have been removed and are no longer supported:

  • Amazon Simple Pay
  • Innovative Gateway Solutions
  • Payflow Link (Legacy)
  • Payflow Pro (Legacy)

If you are already using one of these options you can continue to use it after you install PR8 Update 7. But if you create a new store with PR8 Update 7, the options will not appear in the admin interface.
