If the default design and layout of Wirecard Checkout Page do not fit to the design and layout of your online shop, you have different possibilities to modify the design of Wirecard Checkout Page.

Customization using CSS

The responsive design of Wirecard Checkout Page can be adjusted using a valid CSS file. The URL to this CSS file is stored on your server and must be accessible from the Internet. The CSS file is received via the given URL in the request parameter CssUrl from your server. The rule set contained in the CSS is then used by our responsive design.

Please note that due to security reasons neither url() functions nor @import directives (e.g. external fonts) are allowed in the CSS file. If they are used they will be ignored.
Never send any font changes within the CSS file. Security checks may last several minutes and lead to payment cancelation. We strongly recommend to customize your fonts using CSS templates.

Please download the following zip-file containing the customization templates (MD5 hash: 921B7B76EF176E755C7E0EC4B8E05891).

What are Wirecard tags?

Within the HTML files (, qtemplate.intermediate.html and qtemplate.payment.html) you can see HTML comments which start always with the text ”QENTA” and end always with ”BEGIN” or ”END”. In between there are individual names, depending on the individual tag.

These tags define the beginning and the end of page elements which are replaced with current values of the actual payment of your consumer when using Wirecard Checkout Page. To help you during your customization of these template files, we have added typical dummy texts between these tags. In production mode all content between these tags will be replaced by Wirecard Checkout Page.
