About Yandex.Money

Yandex.Money is primarily an eWallet that shoppers based in the countries in the Payment Method Properties table below use to make real-time online payments. There is an additional option available to shoppers wishing to pay by a credit or debit card linked to their Yandex.Money account.

Shopper journey overview

To make a payment with Yandex.Money:

  1. On the payment page, the shopper selects the Yandex.Money payment method.

    The shopper is redirected to the Yandex.Money website.

  2. The shopper logs in to their Yandex.Money eWallet with their account username and password.

  3. The shopper enters their payment password, which is different to their account password, on the confirmation screen to complete the payment.

  4. At the end of the shopper journey, the shopper may return on the successURL.

Payment timeout

There is currently a one hour timeout for the shopper to click the Pay button to complete their payment. This timeout starts from the moment the shopper arrives on the Yandex.Money web page. First time shoppers can use this time to register with Yandex.Money. Shoppers already registered can use the time to top-up the balance of their Yandex.Money wallet if they have insufficient funds.


We advise you to inform your shoppers that:

  • Worldpay AP appears as the payment recipient on the Yandex.Money payment pages

  • Worldpay AP appears as the payment recipient on the shopper’s Yandex.Money statement

  • Worldpay AP appears as the sender of the payment on the shopper’s Yandex.Money statement in the case of a direct refund

If you give your shoppers this advice it may reduce shopper abandonment.
