The installation of any module is very simple in QloApps.
- Go to the “Module and Services” tab.
- Click on “Add New Module”.
Now upload the Zip file of module and click on install.
Now you have installed the module. So let’s check how to configure it.
As soon as you install the module the install button will convert into configure button.
And at any course of time if you want to change the configuration then you can go to Module And Services Tab.
Now to configure the PayPal Checkout on your website you will need to enter:
- Merchant Id
- Account Email
- Client Id
- Client Secret
Once you enter and save these details you are ready to go.
In order to configure the module, you will need to obtain the client ID, client secret & merchant ID.
Firstly, visit the PayPal website. After that, proceed to login into your Paypal account.
Enter your login credentials to proceed.
After successfully logging in to the account, go to the “My Apps & credentials” section. Now, click on the ‘Create App” button.
Enter the name of your app & click on the “Create App” button.
After clicking on the button, API credentials will be generated. View your client Id & client secret here on this page.
Now, to get the merchant ID, firstly go to the accounts section.
Under accounts section, find the account for which you want to get the merchant ID. After finding the account, click on the three dots button available against the account name. Now, click on the “View/edit account” button to proceed.
After clicking on that button, following popup with account details will open. Here, you can find your merchant ID.
To find the merchant ID of your PayPal account for live mode, log in to your PayPal account at paypal.com. After that, click on the Settings icon, Navigate to Account Setting and click on Business information, and look for PayPal Merchant ID.
So, this was all about the process to get the API credentials for the module.
The working of this addon is very simple.
Let us check out how the customer will make the payment on the frontend first then we will see how things are going on the backend.
Once the module is successfully configured the guest will see the option to pay via PayPal on the check out page.
Now the customer has two options, pay via PayPal account or via Card.
Here the customer will have to login into his account using his credentials.
Once login the customer can use his balance to pay or use PayPal credits.
If the customer chooses to pay for his booking using his credit or debit card then he can do that too.
As he selects Pay Via Card he will have the fields to enter the details and complete the payment.
After this payment will be done and the booking will be completed.
After the customer makes the payment on the front, the transaction is recorded on the backend using the PayPal Transaction Tab.
Now the admin can click on the View button to see the details of a particular transaction.
Here he will also have the option to make a refund.
The admin can either make full refund or he can make a partial refund. In case of partial refund he will have to enter the amount he wants to refund.
So this is how you can manage your payments through the QloApps PayPal Checkout payment gateway.
This was all from the QloApps PayPal Checkout Payments. I hope I was able to clarify the functioning of the module to you.
