Integrate Affirm into your Volusion e-commerce platform.


This guide describes how to integrate Affirm into the Volusion e-commerce platform so you can provide Affirm as a payment option to your customers. After integrating Affirm, your Volusion site will:

  • Offer Affirm as a payment option on the checkout page
  • Display Affirm promotional messaging

Before you begin 

Before beginning integration, you should review:

Sandbox development

You should have received an email inviting you to create an Affirm account. Click here for information about accessing your account.

Develop and test the Affirm integration in your development environment connected to our sandbox. To use our sandbox, retrieve your sandbox API keys at https://sandbox.affirm.com/dashboard/#/apikeys for use during integration.

After development and testing, you'll need to update your integration to use your live API keys, which you can find at https://affirm.com/dashboard/#/apikeys.

1. Install and configure Affirm

Please reach out to your Volusion Client Success Manager for instructions on installing and configuring Affirm and adding Affirm promotional messaging.

2. Review your order management functions

For more information on processing orders in Volusion, refer to their documentation.

3. Coordinate testing with Affirm

Before deploying the Affirm integration to your production site, Affirm will need to test it in your development or staging environment connected to our live environment. Contact your Integration Consultant or [email protected] to coordinate this test.

4. Deploy to production

Connect to the live Affirm environment

Contact your Client Success Manager for instructions on connecting to the Affirm live environment.

Launch to production

After you've connected to our live environment and we've tested your integration, you're ready to deploy to your production environment and offer Affirm as a payment option to your customers.
