About PayDollarBack to top
PayDollar is a leading online payment provider in Hong Kong, enabling merchants to accept online payments securely via credit card. PayDollar is a great option for sellers in the following regions:
Setup in CheckfrontBack to top
In order to set up PayDollar in Checkfront, you will already need to have an active PayDollar account. If you don't, visit the PayDollar website to get started.
Once you have an account, it's time to activate the provider within your Checkfront Booking Manager.
To activate PayDollar, navigate to Payment settings (Manage > Ecommerce Setup > Payment) in Checkfront.
Within the Payment tab, locate the PayDollar tile and select it to open the Setup modal.
Enter your Merchant ID and Secret Hash Key.
- Merchant IDBack to top
This can be found at the top of your PayDollar account dashboard when you log in through their website.
- Secret Hash KeyBack to top
|PayDollar will not enable the Secure Hash and provide you with the Secure Secret Hash Key by default when you register. You must contact PayDollar support to enable Secure Hash. After it is enabled, you can see the Secure Secret Hash Key in your merchant account's Payment Information section.|
This is an additional password you can use to encrypt payment information from Checkfront to PayDollar, but it is not required. To view your secret hash key, navigate to the Payment Information (Profile Payment Information) section in your PayDollar account dashboard. You will be able to copy and paste the key from there.
- PayDollar Login ID and PasswordBack to top
Your PayDollar 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.
Finally, click Activate to turn on the modal and PayDollar will be live! Make sure you follow the steps below to complete the connection.
Setup in PayDollarBack to top
Now that setup is complete in Checkfront, you will need to configure it in PayDollar before you start taking payments.
In your Checkfront account, navigate to the Ecommerce Payment page (Manage > Ecommerce Setup > Payment) and select the PayDollar tile to open the Setup modal.
At the top of the Setup modal, there will be a unique URL for your account. Select this URL and copy it.
Now, log into your PayDollar account and navigate to the Profile tab.
Select Payment Options.
In the Return Value Link (Datafeed) field, paste the copied URL from the Checkfront modal. Then, click Save to save these changes.
Next to the Return Value (Datafeed) option, make sure the Enabled option is selected.
You can press the Test button to make sure the URL is working properly. If you get an "SSL Certificate provider" error, try replacing https:// with http:// in the copied URL. This URL lets PayDollar let Checkfront know if a payment was processed successfully or not. If you're still getting this error, or another error, please check that you copied the URL without spaces. If the error persists, reach out to support.
Now, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Update.
You will be asked to confirm your changes. Please review that all of the changes are correct and then click Confirm.
Congratulations! You are now ready to use PayDollar!
Processing RefundsBack to top
Currently, Refunds are not working in PayDollar. Refunds will need to be processed in the PayDollar dashboard manually. You can then add a POS refund and a note on the booking in Checkfront for your records. If you have any further questions please reach out to support.
In order to process refunds through PayDollar, directly through your Checkfront Booking Manager, you must input your PayDollar 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 PayDollar.
If you don't use this feature, you will need to manually refund the payment in your PayDollar 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 labelled Sandbox (test mode) in the payment provider's activation modal to turn on the test mode.
Don't forget to uncheck this once you are ready to process live credit card payments!
