Configure Console for WooCommerce

Set up an account on Console so that you can start accepting TrueLayer payments in your WooCommerce store.


Minimum requirements:

Wordpress 4.5 or greater, WooCommerce 6 or later

Before you start accepting payments with TrueLayer, you need to sign up for an account on the TrueLayer Console and generate key credentials. Console is a dashboard which you can use to manage your TrueLayer account.

To sign up for Console and configure your account, read the guide below.

1. Sign up and upload your credentials

  1. Go to Console.
  2. Sign up to Console and verify your new account.
  3. Create a new application, choose a client ID and download your client_secret.
  4. In the top-right corner, switch the toggle so that Live is greyed out.
  5. Go to Payments API. The plugin uses Payments API v3 to power your payments through TrueLayer on your store.

  1. Generate a public and private key. These are required credentials that you'll enter into the plugin later. Use this article to generate them.
    Store them in a secure place. Only you know your private key, which provides an additional and essential layer of security.
  2. In Console, click Payments in the left navigation bar, then click Get Started.
  3. Upload your generated public key from step 5:

2. Create a merchant account

  1. Create your merchant account.
  2. Enter the name you want your merchant account to have. This can either be a company name or a person's name: it will be what your customers see on their bank statement after they pay you. Then click CREATE.

3. Set your webhook and redirect URIs

  1. Under Payments API, go to Settings and set your Webhook URI. The Webhook URI provides a destination for TrueLayer to send payment status updates to. Update this to the following:

  1. Click the cog icon in the top-left to open the Settings page.
  2. Add a return URI under Allowed redirect URIs.
    This is where your customers are redirected to after they authorise a payment. Update this to the following:

You've now configured your TrueLayer account.
