Merchant Back Office Configuration

In Configuration > Environment > Response Address, set your configuration like this:

If your store has store codes in the URL, put it in the response URL:

http://<< your domain >>/it_IT/bancasellapro/gestpay/s2s

Here the store code is it_IT. The module will automatically identify the store where the purchase was made.

Some errors (404, 403) may be due to incorrect typing of the URLs (e.g. if www is missing from the address)


To enable the token feature you have to disable 3D secure security protocol. By disabling, the module can request the authorization on the credit card for recurrent payments. It’s not possible to use security protocols together with recurring payments.

You can disable 3D secure by asking Axerve customer care.

Authorization and Settlement of a transaction

Authorization request

With M.O.T.O. configuration, Axerve Ecommerce Solutions permits to separate the authorization and settlement phases. If enabled, the first transaction will be limited to the autorization request, else Axerve Ecommerce Solutions will settle the amount immediately.

The plugin works accordingly to this configuration, implementing Axerve Ecommerce Solutions S2S API for Settlement, Cancel and Refund. In case you are not using S2S services you have to manually settle the transaction in the merchant back office.


With the settlement operation the authorized amount will permanently be transferred to the merchant account. To use it, M.O.T.O. must be configured to separate the authorization from the settlement.

With this configuration Magento will create the order and, on checkout, it will block the necessary amount with the authorization operation (the merchant will receive an email from Axerve Ecommerce Solutions).

When the shop administrator requests the invoice, Magento will ask Axerve Ecommerce Solutions to settle the amount (and it will send an email to the merchant).


Cancelling a transaction occours when you cancel an authorized transaction. It can be performed only with M.O.T.O. configured to separate authorization and settlement. It can be performed only on transactions that are not settled. This operations can be performed by Magento backend via the panel Sales > Sales and orders > Orders, and from the order detail by clicking on “Void”.


Refund is the operation of refunding a settlement. From a fiscal point of view it is a charge on the merchant account and a credit on the buyer’s card. This operation can be performed only on altready settled transactions.

A settled transaction can be refunded partially and more than once, until the total of the original amount is reached. These operations are done from Magento using the control panel Sales > Orders and Sales > Invoices > Credit Note and clicking on Refund.


Labels for this module can be translated in every language, using Magento transaltion system based on CSV. You’ll find that the plugin already contains two languages:
