Magento experts must consider several factors when developing an extension for BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) payment solutions. Many Magento developers refrain from working on such projects as payment integrations must be highly secure and not interrupt other operations. But at Virtina, we have no biases, and the more challenging the project, the more excited we get.
This passion for Magento development made us accept a project from a leading POS financing solutions provider. The client is a white-labeled solutions provider based in New York. Our client offers highly-scalable and secure payment solutions that help in online and in-store transactions.
The company uses advanced blockchain technology to ensure tension-free online transactions for eCommerce customers. eCommerce store owners could use the client's API to facilitate easy and efficient BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) options for eCommerce customers. However, the client could not sync their features to a Magento store.
The clients sought Virtina's help to create an efficient Magento extension to allow online store owners to integrate their BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) API. Virtina was an obvious choice for the client because of its track record for developing Magento extensions for BNPL services. Besides Magento 2, Virtina created BNPL plugins for closed-source platforms, such as BigCommerce and Shopify.

Implementing Credit Checks for Magento Store Customers
One of the primary functions of the BNPL Magento 2 extension Virtina created for the client is facilitating the credit check for online customers. Every BNPL plugin includes a credit check process to determine whether the customer is eligible for the BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) option. The credit check process involves collecting customer details, such as social security and phone numbers.
Our Magento experts ensured that the extension could seamlessly collect the customer's details and relay them to a credit-checking API. Virtina had to ensure that the communication between the Magento store and the credit-checking API faced no interruptions. Any interruption in contact with the credit check API could lead to a loss of sales.
We know how tough the eCommerce market is in today's world. Moreover, the customer will likely try finding a different seller if the online store does not respond accurately. It is no secret that the average eCommerce customer has many options at their disposal. Hence, our Magento experts were extra careful to ensure seamless communication between the two APIs.
Enabling Widget Capability By Individually Coding Magento 2 Pages
The experts at Virtina are also responsible for enabling a widget capability for the POS financing solutions provider. As per the client's requirement, we developed a widget or snippet that the Magento 2 store owner can enable through the extension we built. The store owner can easily allow or disable the snippet on selected front-end pages.
Enable a widget for your BNPL solution on Magento 2 store
The snippet is a short message that pops up when the customer clicks on it to display the payment option and check credit eligibility. Our developers worked tirelessly to write code for each page to display the snippet. Besides that, our QA team reviewed these pages to ensure that the code worked perfectly on Magento 2.
Magento 2 store owners can display the BNPL widget in three types of front-end pages. A store owner can show the BNPL widget on the following pages using our custom extension.
- Category page
- Product details page
- Cart page
Our Magento 2 extension ensures that the store owner can quickly enable or disable the snippet from the backend. Virtina's experts ensured the store owner could display a widget on relevant pages to let the customer check their credit eligibility. Furthermore, Virtina also considers the security aspect of the extension.
The store owner must provide the following details to enable the snippet across various front-end pages.
- Merchant ID
- Client ID
- Client Secret Key
It is also worth noting that the extension calls these three values when working in real-life to provide a BNPL payment option to Magento 2 customers. More importantly, Virtina made it a point to allow the store owner to provide the above details effortlessly from the backend. But we will discuss this more later.
Implementing a Clickable Widget for Credit Eligibility Check
Magento 2 customers could click on the snippet to view a pop-up where they can check their credit eligibility. It is a simple but essential feature to extend the BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) option to eCommerce customers. Our Magento 2 Extension allows customers to check their credit eligibility across different front-end pages.
That's not all. We made it a point to implement the capability on the backend that allows the Magento store owner to turn on or off the credit eligibility message. Magento 2 store owners can choose to display the credit eligibility message on the category page, product details page, and cart page.
It allows the eCommerce customer to speed up purchase decisions at various stages in the conversion funnel. As an expert in eCommerce, we always make it a point to relay the benefits of our solutions to all parties involved. We designed the credit eligibility widget to facilitate a streamlined shopping experience, ultimately helping the store owner and the online customer.
Adding a Special Payment Section on Magento 2 Backend to Manage BNPL Payments
A unique payment section in the backend is one of the most valuable features we incorporated into the Magento 2 extension. After integrating our Magento 2 extension, the store owner can control the BNPL payment option on their store effortlessly. Our developers use a minimalistic approach for the special payment section in Magento 2 backend.
Create an additional payment section for your POS financial solution with the help of our experts
The Magento 2 platform already offers some default payments, such as Klarna and Amazon Pay. Our task was to create a custom extension that allows the client's API to provide credit payment capability on Magento stores. The backend payment section is how the store owner interacts with the client's credit payment services.
After integrating the Magento 2 Extension, the store owner needs to access the payment section in the backend. The additional section for enabling the BNPL payment appears there. The new payment section appears in the same section as the default payment options in the backend. As a result, the store owner can quickly manage the BNPL payments using our extension.
It is the section where the store owner can add the security details for enabling the POS finance solution. Virtina used a simple form design where the Magento 2 store owner can quickly feed in further information like the Merchant ID, Client ID, and Client Secret Key. The store owners will be okay with finding the custom page and providing the credential to enable BNPL payments.
The custom page also houses the option to enable or disable the BNPL snippet on different front-end pages. It includes the Category Page, Product Detail Page, and Cart Page. Our developers use a drop-down menu with simple "yes" and "no" options. Magento 2 store owners can thus choose where they want to display the BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later)message or snippet on their website.
Custom Coding for Adding a Special Payment Section and Thank You Page
The Magento 2 project for the POS finance solution provider involved significant hours in custom coding. Our Magento 2 experts had to work tirelessly to code the widget capability across numerous front-end pages. But the coding for the special payment section was more complex because it houses functional capabilities.
As discussed above, the additional payment section for the merchant allows the store owner to enable or disable the BNPL payment option. Our developers had to write custom codes to accomplish this and also to allow the capability to enable the snippet for specific pages in the store. We even ran multiple QA tests to ensure that the custom code worked perfectly.
Build a custom Magento 2 extension for your software solution with the help of our developers
Besides the special payment section for the POS finance solution provider, our experts used a custom code to display the thank you message. We built a "thank you" message template that would pop up every time a customer uses the client's POS finance solution to make a payment online. Our code conveys a simple thank you message for using the client's payment solution.
Ensuring Seamless and Custom BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) Capability for Magento 2
The result of our custom Magento development project is a robust solution that facilitates BNPL payments using the client API. Our Magento experts were able to create a custom Magento 2 extension that seamlessly connected their POS finance API with the Magento 2 platform.
Our client can use the custom solution to allow their POS payment solution to work on any Magento 2 store. Moreover, we ensure that the Magento 2 store owners can effortlessly use the extension to facilitate more flexible and secure payment options for their customers.
