  • Create your test account.

  2. In the Third-party providers section, select Choose third-party provider.

Contact our Support Team, mention that you're using Shopify, and ask them to enable the API PCI Payments role for your API credential.

Set up capture

For the integration to work, you need to configure capture settings in your Adyen Customer Area, and in Shopify:

In your Adyen Customer Area

  1. Log in to your Adyen Customer Area with your merchant-level account.
  2. Go to Settings > Account settings.
  3. In the Capture Delay drop-down menu, select manual.
  4. Select Submit.

In your Shopify admin

  1. In your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Payment providers.
  2. In the Payment capture section, select Automatically capture payment for orders.
  3. Select Save.

3D Secure with Cardinal

If you are using our integration and want to implement 3D Secure, for example for PSD2 compliance, you need to sign up with Cardinal. This restriction is imposed by Shopify, and we are actively working on getting our own 3D Secure authentication solution available with them.

Using Cardinal for 3D Secure restricts the available card schemes to American Express, Visa, Mastercard, Diners, Discover, and JCB.

To get the required information for creating your Cardinal account, contact our Support Team.
