About Braintree, a PayPal ServiceBack to top
Braintree is a Payment Provider now owned by PayPal.
Braintree, a PayPal Service (referred to simply as Braintree throughout the article) connects to the Braintree API using OAuth, an open standard for access delegation.
This provides a seamless checkout for your Customers and fully integrates into the Checkfront back-office app.

Sandbox ModeBack to top
It's highly recommended that you do an end-to-end test of your checkout before putting your site live. To do so, follow the setup instructions above and click on the Sandbox link to activate the test-mode.
Create a transaction as a Customer and check to see that it shows up in your Checkfront account as paid and within Braintree also. If you don't have a website configured yet, use the hosted booking page (eg: https://yourcompany.checkfront.com/reserve/) to test.
