Payment Services: CCAvenue

Country Acceptance: India, South Asia


CCAvenue is a Payment Service Provider that offers payment services in India and South Asia.

For field descriptions, see Configuration: Payment Services - CCAvenue.

Step 1: Open a CCAvenue Merchant Account

The first step is to establish a CCAvenue merchant account. As you go through the process, take note of the following information, which you will need to complete the configuration in Magento Go:

  • Merchant Id/User Id
  • 32 Bit Working Key

For more information about opening a CCAvenue merchant account, visit their site at

Note: Before you continue, make sure you have “Indian Rupee” enabled as the base currency in the Admin panel configurations. If you have a different base currency, CCAvenue will not appear as an alternative payment method in the store checkout.

Step 2: Configure CCAvenue in Magento Go

  1. From the Admin panel, select System > Configuration.
  2. From the Configuration panel on the left, under Sales, select the Payment Method tab.
  3. Click to expand the CCAvenue section. Then, do the following:
    1. To activate this payment method, set Enabled to Yes.
    2. In the Title field, enter an appropriate title to identify this payment method during the checkout process of your Magento Go store.
    3. Enter the following information from your CCAvenue merchant account:
      • Merchant Id/User Id
      • 32 Bit Working Key
    4. Optional: Enter a Transaction ID prefix. If you do this, it is recommended that you assign the Transaction ID prefix once only and avoid changing it in the future.
    5. In the Payment from Applicable Countries list, select the countries where this payment method can be used:
      • All Allowed Countries: Customers from all countries in the default countries list can use this payment method.

        NOTE: You can define which countries are listed in the default list by modifying the Allowed Countries field in System > Configuration > General > Countries Options.

      • Specific Countries: Customers from only those countries selected in the Payment from Specific Countries list can use this payment method. (The list appears when you select this option.)
    6. To set the position of CCAvenue in the list of payment methods that is displayed during checkout, enter a numeric value in the Sort Order field.
    7. Do one of the following:
      • When you are ready to test the configuration and process test transactions, set Test Mode to Yes.
      • When you are ready to “go live” with the CCAvenue payment method, set Test Mode to No.
    8. To record the details of all exchanges between your Magento Go store and the CCAvenue payment system in a log file, set Debug to Yes.

      NOTE: In accordance with PCI Data Security Standards, credit card information is not recorded in the log file.

  4. When finished, click the Save Config button.
