  6. Login to your Adyen dashboard and navigate to Account » Merchant accounts and copy your Account code. Navigate back to your WordPress website and store your Account code within the Merchant Account field.
  7. Head back to your Adyen dashboard and go to Account » Users. If you haven’t made a webservice user yet, please create one. See the Adyen documentation for detailed instructions.
  8. While adding the ‘User’ an API-key is created, copy this API-key and finish making your Adyen ‘User’. Head back to your WordPress dashboard and paste the API key in the corresponding setting field.

You can find your prefix within the Adyen dashboard by navigating to Account » API URLs. The prefix is a combination of a unique number combination and your account code (for example: 123456789-accountCode).
  11. Make sure to save your changes!

Congratulations, your configuration is ready for use.

Using Adyen in live mode

The webservice user needs to have the “Checkout webservice role”. If the webservice user does not have this role, please contact Adyen support to request this role for the webservice user (Account » Support in the Adyen dashboard).
