How do I configure the settings of the Adyen WooCommerce plugin?

Before you can use the Adyen WooCommerce plugin and accept payments through your WooCommerce webshop, you need the configure the plugin settings. You can find the settings for the plugin by following the path WooCommerce > Settings > tab Adyen.


First you need to purchase a license via the website of Woosa. Once you have purchased a license, you will receive a license key which can be filled in the settings of the plugin. If you don't have an active license, your plugin might not work correctly. Follow the steps below to fill in your license details:
  1. Your Woosa license key always starts with wc_. Copy this to the field API license key.
  2. The API e-mail is the email address you registered with at Woosa, fill this in under API e-mail.
  3. Next click on Save changes. the license status will now be changed to Active. If the status doesn't change and is still Inactive, than we recommend you to check your license key at My account.
