FAQ ↑ Back to top

Question 1: When I test the PsiGate gateway, the payments fails with ‘Payment status: 1007’, generated in the debug log. What should I do? ↑ Back to top

Answer 1: This error means that the ports on your websites server, used to communicate with PsiGate, are closed. Talk with your hosting provider and get the ports opened. The test port is 7989 and only you should know your production port.

Question 2: I am trying to make a payment, but it fails with error message: error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure. What should I do? ↑ Back to top

Answer 2: This error means that there is a connection problem with your cURL and your SSL. Please try adding the following line of code to your theme\functions.php file.

Question 3: We sell both in Canadian and US dollars and we have Psigate accounts for each currency, can we use your plugin to the corresponding Psigate account based on the order currency? ↑ Back to top

Answer 3: Yes, you can charge multiple separate account using the plugin and the built in filters. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Install and setup the gateway as normal for one of the accounts. Lets say for the example that this is for US dollars.
  2. Add this snippet to your theme\functions.php file or anywhere where the code will be loaded.

In the snippet all you need to do is to fill in the currency  and the credentials of the Psigate account that will charge the currency. For example, line 49 through 59, you enter “CAD“(for Canadian Dollars) as currency and the StoreID and Passphrase of the account that will charge the payments. If you want to add even more currencies, just duplicate line 46 through 56 and add another currency.
