Editing a Payment Gateway in Arastta


On this page you will see the General and Order Status tabs. The General tab is where you must configure the gateway itself.


PayPal Payments Standard General Options


  • E-Mail – The email address corresponding to your PayPal account
  • Sandbox Mode Enable this if you want to test transactions with your Sandbox PayPal account
  • Debug Mode Enabling this will provide additional information about payments in the system log
  • Transaction Method The transaction method can be either Authorization or Sale (Authorization leaves the client with time to cancel as the money are subtracted from his account but not automatically added to yours as you must go into your PayPal account and claim the transaction)
  • Total - The amount that must be reached during a checkout to activate this payment (we recommend you to leave this blank for this method = 0.00$)
  • Sort Order - The position of the payment gateway relevant to the other gateways when a user has to choose
  • Geo Zone - The geographical zone where this payment is allowed to operate
  • Status - Enable/Disable the payment
