  • MAC Key – Secret MAC key sent to you by Nordea. For Test mode, use the following values: LEHTI.
  • Recipient Name – Optional. Only enter a value if you want to specify a different payment recipient than in your contract with Nordea.
  • Recipient Account – Optional. Only enter an IBAN account number if you want to specify a different payment recipient than in your contract with Nordea, otherwise, leave blank.
  • Debug Mode – Enable this is you are having issues processing transactions. Either log API requests / responses directly to the checkout / thank you page, save them to the WooCommerce Error Log (found under WooCommerce > System Status > Logs) or both. All debugging messages are cleaned of sensitive information before display, but as a best practice do not enable this unless you are having issues with the plugin.

WooCommerce 2.2 added the ability to process automatic refunds. Does this gateway support automatic refunds?

Not at the moment. Refunds support might be be added in a future release for the countries where Nordea has refund support.
