PesoPay is a leading online payment gateway in the Philippines, enabling merchants to accept online payments securely via credit cards. With the ability to perform in-app refunds, PesoPay is a great option for sellers in this region.
Setup in CheckfrontBack to top
In order to setup PesoPay in Checkfront, you will already need to have an active PesoPay account in place. If you don't, visit the PesoPay website to get started.
Assuming you have an account in place at PesoPay, it's time to activate the gateway within your Checkfront Booking Manager and provide some details required to link the two services.
To activate PesoPay, navigate to Manage > E-Commerce in your Checkfront main menu.
Make sure the Payment tab is selected, which it should be by default, and locate the PesoPay tile.
When you find the tile, hover over it with your mouse and click on the PesoPay label. The label will turn blue as you hover over it.
Enter your Merchant ID and Secret Hash Key.
This can be found at the top of your PesoPay account dashboard when you log in through their website.
Secret Hash Key
To view your secret hash key, navigate to Profile > Payment Information in your PesoPay account dashboard. You will be able to copy and paste the key from there.
PesoPay will not enable the Secure Hash and provide you with the Secure Secret Hash Key upon registration to the payment gateway by default. You must contact PesoPay support to ensure that the Secure Hash is enabled and you can see the Secure Secret Hash Key in your merchant account Payment Information.
Your PesoPay Login ID and Password are required ONLY if you wish to perform refunds within Checkfront. These credentials were provided to you when your account was created.
Processing RefundsBack to top
In order to process refunds through PesoPay, directly through your Checkfront Booking Manager, you must input your PesoPay Login ID and Password during the activation process we looked at earlier.
If you do this, refunding an invoice in Checkfront will automatically send that refund back to the customer's credit card via PesoPay.
If you don't use this feature, you will need to manually refund the payment in your PesoPay account dashboard and record a POS refund in Checkfront to balance out your books.
Sandbox (Test Mode)Back to top
We highly recommend running an end-to-end test on your booking system before processing any live payments. Check the box labeled Sandbox (test mode) in the payment gateway activation modal to turn on the test mode.
Don't forget to uncheck this once you are ready to process live credit card payments!
