Defining display options

When the consumer to your online shop selects the payment method Sofort, a pop-up will open by default to enter the relevant consumer's payment details. Since a lot of consumers have pop-up blockers enabled, the pop-up may not be shown and consumers may not proceed with the payment process. In order to allow consumers to proceed with the checkout even if pop-up blockers are enabled, Wirecard offers the option to open Sofort as a page.

Please contact our support teams to enable this feature.

Designing the payment selection page
