If you use a shop system for your online shop you can integrate our Wirecard solutions by simply installing one of our shop extensions. We offer these free of charge as open-source shop extensions for many shop systems.
Please visit Shop Systems for further information on the currently supported shop extensions.
If you use a shop system and no shop extension or shop integration is available or if you need full flexibility and control within the payment processes you are able to do a so-called "direct integration" of our payment products into your shop system. Please be aware that depending on the product you need at least a little programming effort is needed.
