Fat Zebra and OpenCart Integration Guide
While testing, it is important that you ensure no sensitive data is included in the data you are validating – this includes card numbers and CVV/CVN numbers. We also recommend that you replace card holder names with example data, however names with diacritics, umlauts or accents may cause validation issues, so remember this while you are testing.
Authentication with the Fat Zebra API is via HTTP Basic Authentication. When your account is setup you are provided with two sets of credentials – one for the test environment (also known as the Sandbox), and one for the live system. Your test username will always be prefixed with TEST
API request *must* be made over HTTPS – any requests over HTTP will fail. All requests require authentication.
It is important to note that your username is *not* case sensitive however your API token (password) is.
Take the credentials you just obtained from Fat Zebra and navigate to Trexle dashboard, click Payments Gateways and select Fat Zebra from the drop down menu as shown below.
Fill into your Fat Zebra credential and click Add Gateway. Click the Activate button next to Fat Zebra, and it will give you a success message and the button will turn into green. You should see something like below.
Trexle extension can be installed to your OpenCart store in two ways:
Download Trexle – OpenCart extension from Trexle GitHub repository
Go to your OpenCart admin panel, navigate to Extensions -> Extension Installer.
Then click the blue Upload button and provide the route to the Trexle extension you’ve just downloaded.
Click the blue Continue button. If successful, you should get a green “Success: You have installed your extension!” message.
Go to your OpenCart Admin panel and then open the Extensions menu. You will see OpenCart Marketplace
Enter ‘Trexle’ in the search field and click on the Trexle extension displayed in the search results.
Click on the ‘Download’ tab and then on the ‘Install’ button.
Wait for the progress bar to notify you of the successful installation of the Trexle extension.
Finally, create a test product, logout from your admin session and test the customer checkout.
When you are registered with Fat Zebra you will be provided with a Test Account, which includes its own username and token. Using these details will ensure that transactions are not sent to your live merchant facility but allow you to do a full end-to-end test from your site to our service.
Testing with variable cards will generate a response based on the cent-amount of the transaction – for example if the transaction amount is $100.51 (10051) then the response code will be 51 – Expired Card, and a transaction with the amount $200.00 (20000) will have the response code 00 – Approved.
