  1. Login to your WorldPay account using the username and password they have sent you

  2. On the left-hand menu click "Set-Up" and you should see an item that looks something like "54321 (Select Junior)". The number will be unique to you

  3. To the right of this click the settings button below "Integration Setup: PRODUCTION"

  5. Ensure the box labelled "Payment Response enabled?" is ticked

  6. In the "Shopper Redirect URL" box enter the website address of your site followed by "/ourshop/thanks.phtml". For example: If your site was at www.mycreatewebsite.co.uk you would enter http://www.mycreatewebsite.co.uk/ourshop/thanks.phtml into the "Shopper Redirect URL" box
