FAQ

I had a question during setup, where can I check the documentation?

In our developer website you will find the step by step of how to integrate the Mercado Pago Plugin in your online store.

What are the requirements for the plugin to work properly?

You must have an SSL certificate, connecting your website with the HTTPS protocol.

If you need to check the protocol configuration, test it here.

Finally, remember that the plugin receives IPN (Instant Payment Notification) notifications automatically, you don’t need to configure it!

I already finished the configuration but the Sandbox environment is not working.

Remember that to test the Checkout Pro you must log out of your Mercado Pago account, as it is not possible to use it to sell and buy at the same time.

Please note that with the Test Environment enabled, the Checkout Pro does not send notifications as does the Custom Checkout.

How do I configure the sending of emails to my customers?

The configuration of sending emails must be done from the WooCommerce administrator. The Mercado Pago Plugin only contemplates sending transactions made in the Checkout Pro.

I reviewed the documentation and these FAQs but still have problems in my store, what can I do?

If you have already reviewed the documentation and have not found a solution, you can contact our support team through their contact form. Please note that we guarantee a response within {7 days} of your query.

How can I set up PIX as a payment method?

PIX is a payment method that exists only in Brazil.

To enable PIX as a payment method in the Custom Checkout of your store, you need to have your key registered in Mercado Pago. See how to do it.

After registering the key, log into the WooCommerce administrator and navigate to the Payments section.

Look for the option Pague com PIX, configure it and activate PIX.

You can set up a time limit for customers to pay after they receive the code, among other settings.

excelente meio de pagamento, recomendo!

Até tudo perfeito! Porém já vi relatos do MercadoPago bloquear saldo na conta, o que causa receio, mas inicialmente irei avaliar com 5 estrelas!
ເດືອນພຶດສະພາ 10, 2024
El plugin es extremadamente intensivo de recursos lo que daña fuertemente las métricas para posicionamiento (Asumo que la intención del plugin no solo es generar un proceso de pago fácil, si no también generar métricas analíticas para su uso por parte de Mercado Libre). Deberían reconsiderar elementos básicos del plugin que muy pronto quedaran obsoletas como la inyección de cookies. También es poco razonable que el plugin se ejecute en todas las paginas del sitio, cuando solo debería ejecutarse en la pagina de compra. Genera exceso de contenido DOM debido al java, lo que afecta drásticamente las métricas mobile. Un consejo para quienes utilizan el plugin, instalen un buen gestor cache en el sitio y bloqueen el plugin para que solo se ejecute en la pagina de compra. Aumentara sus métricas en un 25% con total certeza.
