Setup in CheckfrontBack to top
To enable Bongloy, login to your Checkfront Account Manager and navigate to Manage > E-Commerce, making sure the Payment tab is selected.
Here you will see a list of available payment modules. Locate the Bongloy tile from the list. You will find it by clicking on the link labelled ...payment methods available to [your country].
Hover over the grey button, which will turn blue, and click.
This will open the Bongloy activation window, as pictured above. Here, you must input your Bongloy Live Secret Key.
Setup in BongloyBack to top
Head over to your account at Bongloy in order to obtain your Live Secret Key. After logging in, you will find the key located under the Account Settings menu.
Scroll down to the section labelled API Keys
Here, you will see two red boxes, one of which is labelled Live Secret Key. That's the one you want. Select the key, highlighted below, and copy it to your computer's clipboard.
Now, head back to the Checkfront Booking Manager and paste the key into the field provided.
Once you've done that, click the blue Activate button. That's it. Setup is now complete!
Test ModeBack to top
It's highly recommended that you do an end-to-end test of your check out process before putting your site live. To do so, follow the setup instructions above and check Sandbox/demo mode.
When using sandbox mode, use the Test Secret Key instead. This can be found alongside your Live Secret Key in the Bongloy settings screen.
Create a transaction as a customer and check to see that it shows up in your Checkfront account as paid, and within Bongloy also. If you don’t have a website to test on yet, use the hosted booking page (eg: https://yourcompany.checkfront.com/reserve/) to test.
