Now that you've set up some items you may be wondering, how does Checkfront handle payments? Checkfront supports popular Payment Providers that allow you to accept real-time payments on your website, and process payments internally. Please see here for a list of all our Payment Providers and their documentation to learn more.
Once your Payment Provider is configured, make sure to setup your Ecommerce preferences.
For a list of supported Payment Providers please see our payment payment addons.
F.A.Q.Back to top
I already have a POS credit card system. Can’t I just store the customer credit card details and enter them in manually?
You may not store credit card numbers in the system. This is against our terms of services and breaks our compliance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards. For more information, please see PCI compliance.
I am unable to use any of the payment gateways you have. Can I add my own?
A feature request is a good way to get your requested payment gateway on our radar (see feature requests). The gateway should be well documented and have a modern API. We tend to add new Payment Providers that will benefit a larger percentage of our customer base and cannot connect to local banks.
Does Checkfront hold my transactions?
Although we make our Payment Providers as seamless as possible, Checkfront does not handle any of the money processed through our booking system. That is controlled entirely by your payment gateway. We recommend you check out your payment gateway's support information to see if they hold any of your transactions, and for how long.
