What is the IWD Checkout Magento Connector?

The Connectors or Extensions allows your Magento store to display the IWD Checkout on your site and to communicate with the IWD Checkout platform. In short, it will display the IWD Checkout-page on your end and help your store's orders to be up to date with its latest payment status.
