Magento software

This guide assumes that you already have the Magento software installed and uploaded to your server. For Magento's system requirements, refer to the Magento documentation.

HTTPS configuration

BlueSnap requires a secure connection to process payments. You must ensure that your domain is SSL certified and SSL is enabled for Magento. (Step 4: Enable SSL explains how.)

Supported currencies

BlueSnap supports the currencies listed here. We recommend configuring your store to only accept currencies supported by BlueSnap.

Supported countries

BlueSnap supports the countries listed here. If a shopper is located in one of these supported countries, they will be able to purchase with the BlueSnap payment module.

PCI compliance

A PCI compliance of SAQ-A is required.

Step 1: Configure your BlueSnap account settings

Before you install the BlueSnap extension in Magento, complete these steps in your Merchant Portal for production or sandbox.

  1. Get your BlueSnap API credentials and define the authorized IP addresses for your server production environment to be used for API calls. Both of these actions are performed on the same page; for instructions click here.

  2. To get paid, you need to configure your payout settings. Refer to Payout for more information.

Step 2: Install and upload the BlueSnap extension

The BlueSnap extension is available from Magento for free. Follow the Adobe Commerce steps here to learn how to install an extension.

Note: The key for the BlueSnap module is bluesnap/m2-module-payment.

Step 3. Configure the BlueSnap extension

To configure the BlueSnap Extension, you must be logged in to your store as an admin.

  1. Go to Stores > Configuration > Sales > Payment Methods. If the installation was successful, you see the new BlueSnap Credit/Debit Card Payments section. Click this section to expand it.

  2. Configure the following settings.

SettingDescription
Enable this SolutionSelect Yes to enable the BlueSnap extension. This means that BlueSnap Credit/Debit Cards appears as a payment option during checkout.
Enable Vaulted Shoppers Select Yes to let logged-in shoppers store their credit card details for future purchases. They can manage their information from their My Account area.



Select No to disable this option.
IPN ConfigurationCopy the URL from this section and use it for the IPN Setup section below.

After that is done, you can select Yes here to activate 3‑D Secure. For more information on 3‑D Secure, refer to our 3‑D Secure Guide. (Note: This link opens in a new tab.)



Select No if you do not want to use 3‑D Secure.
Enable Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC)The default selection is “No”, as we follow Magento’s default currency configuration. Magento provides three types of currencies:
- Base currency (for your store)
- Display currency (what shoppers see)
- Allowed currency (select same as Base currency)

To provide the best experience for your shoppers, you should configure a base currency for each of your stores/websites. The display currency and allowed currency are set to allow your shoppers to see prices in their specific currency. However, if the display or allowed currency differs from the store's base currency, the shopper will be charged in the base currency and not the allowed or displayed currency.

If you plan to offer multiple currencies, Magento's best practice is to set a store for each currency you plan to offer, and then use geo-location to direct the shopper to the proper store.
