What is "Installation and configuration"?
When you are buying the plugin, you can choose to also buy the add-on "Installation and configuration".
When you buy this add-on Majako will help you to install the plugin and setup the basic configuration needed to get it up and running.
What you still need to do: 1. Create a European Klarna account with the Klarna Checkout feature enabled 2. Create a temporary administrator account in your nopCommerce installation for Majako 3. Contact Majako (firstname.lastname@example.org) with basic information for your installation
What is the "Order management" add-on?
When you are buying the plugin, you can choose to also buy the add-on "Order management".
With this add-on and the setting "Manage Klarna Orders from Admin" checked, all changes of an order in nopCommerce will be reflected to Klarna, for instance adding or changing order items or changing shipping address.
What is synced without the "Order management" add-on?
- New orders will also be created in Klarna
- Cancelling an order in nopCommerce will result in cancelled order in Klarna as well (if possible)
- If the setting "Automatically activate Klarna Order" is checked the Klarna orders will be activated when marking a shipment as shipped in nopCommerce
How does the plugin determine customer's country?
The plugin tries to determine the customer's country in this order:
- If KlarnaCheckoutSettings.ForceFallbackToDefaultCountry is configured - use that country
- Otherwise, use the customer's nopCommerce shipping address
- Otherwise, use the customer's nopCommerce generic attribute "CountryId"
- Otherwise, use nopCommerce's built in functionality for determine country based on ip address (GEO-IP)
If the above determined country isn't support for Klarna in the Payment method restrictions and if the setting "Fallback to default country" is enabled, use the country from the setting "Default country".
What is a Trial license?
A trial license is free. It can only be used with Klarna test accounts (https://playground.eu.portal.klarna.com/developer-sign-up)
What is a Multiple Domain license?
Multiple domain licenses can be used for more than one store on the same nopCommerce installation.
