With some products ready on your booking page, 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.
To connect your Checkfront account to a payment gateway you can follow the steps below:
- Select a Payment Provider. From the Setup Guide on your Checkfront dashboard or Payment Provider page (Manage > Ecommerce), select the payment gateway you would like to use.
- Complete the setup form. Connecting to each payment provider can vary slightly, but connecting Checkfront to your Payment Provider often involves logging into your payment provider account.
- Activate the integration and make a test booking if you'd like.
Once your Payment Provider is configured, make sure to set up your Ecommerce preferences.
Our full list of support Payment Providers can be found here.
Frequently asked questionsBack 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 Providers you have. Can I add my own?
A feature request is a good way to get your requested Payment Provider on our radar (see feature requests). The Payment Provider 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 Provider. We recommend you check out your Payment Provider's support information to see if they hold any of your transactions, and for how long.
