Download eTLog .p12 certificate:

  1. Go through the above settings for Private and Public keys
  2. When you have saved them both, you will see a button on the bottom to Download your .p12 certificate
  3. Press the “Download the public key in .p12 format” button
Download .p12 format

I – The .p12 certificate requires a password to import into the browser. How do I add a password?

To add a password to the p12 certificate you will need to use a WordPress filter:

  1. Use the following code snippet: Add your own password in the “set_your_pass” space and add the snippet to your “themes/your-theme/functions.php” file (at the bottom of the file)
  2. Export the file with the instructions from “Download eTLog .p12 certificate” section
  3. Import the file into your browser (that is Settings > Certificates > Personal > click “Import” button > add the file) and enter your chosen password when prompted to.

II – I added all certificates and when I test a payment, I return to the store with an error “Проверката на подписа за безопасност е неуспешна. Моля свържете се с администратор за повече информация.” or “Signature verification failed. Please contact the administrator for more information.”. The payment is successful, but the order is not processed. What should I do?

The described error is most likely caused by a mismatching public key in the test or live environment, depending on what transactions you are trying to process. Here are the steps to take and fix the issue:

  1. Let’s say you are processing test transactions.
  2. Login into “”
  3. Navigate to “Borica Certificate”(Борика Сертификат) menu
  4. Copy the certificate and paste it into the “Test Public Key” setting field in the plugin settings and save.
  5. Test the payment again
