PayDollar is a leading online payment gateway in Hong Kong, enabling merchants to accept online payments securely via credit cards. With the ability to perform in-app refunds, 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 in place. If you don't, visit the PayDollar website to get started.
Assuming you have an account in place at PayDollar, it's time to activate the gateway within your Checkfront Booking Manager and provide some details required to link the two services.
To activate PayDollar, 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 PayDollar tile.
When you find the tile, hover over it with your mouse and click on the PayDollar 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 PayDollar 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 PayDollar account dashboard. You will be able to copy and paste the key from there.
PayDollar 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 PayDollar 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 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.
Processing RefundsBack to top
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 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!
