Braintree is an online payment solution specializes in mobile and web payment systems for e-commerce companies. Braintree payments is fully supported and integrated within SonicFunnels. Braintree supports and is able to process other payment methods such as PayPal, Venmo, credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
In order to use this payment gateway within SonicFunnels, you will need to register an account with Braintree.
Enable Braintree Payments
If you want to use this payment gateway, you need to make sure it is enabled in your SonicFunnels installation. In the administration go to “Sales Management” -> “Checkout Settings” and enable Braintree. If you also want to use PayPal, then set the “Enable PayPal within Braintree” option to “Yes“. Please note that if you enable PayPal within Braintree, then you cannot activate our “PayPal Smart Buttons” payment gateway.
Once it is done, you need to go to your Braintree account and obtain the necessary credentials that will be required.
Get Braintree Payments Credentials
Log in to your Braintree account. Click the gear icon on the top and select the “API” menu item.
From here you will need three pieces of information:
- Public key
- Private key
- Merchant ID
If you don’t have any public or private keys yet, click the “Generate New API Key” button. Take a note of your public and private keys, because you will need to paste them in your SonicFunnels settings.
On this same page, scroll down a bit to the “Client-Side Encryption Keys” section and copy your “Merchant ID” as well.
Set up Braintree Payments in SonicFunnels
In the SonicFunnels administration go to “Sales Management” -> “Payment Gateways” and select the Braintree tab.
Set the “SELECT ENVIRONMENT” option to “Production”, then in the “PRODUCTION MERCHANT ID” field paste the id you just copied from your Braintree account. The in the “PRODUCTION PUBLIC KEY” paste the public key from the Braintree account, and similarly in the “PRODUCTION PRIVATE KEY” dield paste your private API key. Once it’s done, click “Save” and the Braintree payments is activated on your site.
It’s a good idea to test the payment with a small amount first before you start selling your products or services.
