Firstgiving and OpenCart Integration Guide
In order to submit requests against Firstgiving API, you must first signup as a FirstGiving.com API partner. Firstgiving will give you what we call an “application id” and a “security token”. This is similar to a username & password. You will identify your requests with your application token and security id on each request.
Take the credentials you just obtained from Firstgiving and navigate to Trexle dashboard, click Payments Gateways and select Firstgiving from the drop down menu as shown below.
Fill into your Firstgiving credential and click Add Gateway. Click the Activate button next to Firstgiving, and it will give you a success message and the button will turn into green. You should see something like below.
