As soon as you install the CM Micropayment Platform the new Payment Gateway is registered in the Easy Digital Downloads.

Afterwards to enable it, all you need to do is to check the checkbox next to “CM Micropayment Gateway” name on the Payment Gateways list (you can change that name below) and update the settings of the Gateway.
