Link up your Payment Gateway

MemberReference can process membership payments.

There are a number of payment gateways that can be linked to MemberReference. These are:

  • Barclays
  • Datacash
  • PayPal Express Checkout
  • SagePay
  • Stripe
  • WorldPay

Select Settings from the options on the left.

Click Payment Processing.

Click Add Payment Gateway.

Select the payment gateway you want to use from the dropdown menu.

The next screen will ask you to enter the details to link your payment gateway with MemberReference. The details you will be asked to enter will vary depending on the payment gateway you are linking but the terminology should match.

Example: Stripe

If you have them, you should always enter the test details for your payment gateway. This will allow you to test that everything is set up successfully without having to make a live payment (however, we always recommend that you make a live payment too).

  • Text to place in this gateway's "Buy" button - This is what will appear on the basket page on the button that will take the registrant to the page to enter their payment details. This will usually say something like 'Pay By Credit/Debit Card' or 'Buy Now'.
  • Details to link payment gateway - These will vary from gateway to gateway but will often include usernames, keys, IDs, etc.
  • Currency - You should set this to the currency you are using for your transactions.
  • Checkout Description - This is what will appear in the payment gateway against the purchase amount.
  • Confirmation Page Content - Which confirmation message do you want to display when the transaction is complete?
  • Test Mode? - You can toggle between live and test mode (if you have entered test credentials) easily so that you can test the system. Select the required option.

Once you have entered all the details, click Save.

You'll also need to set up the fields for the details that will be passed across to the payment gateway to verify the payment (name, address, email address etc).

Click ;Settings and then select Global Payment Settings.

Map the fields using the dropdown options - you do not have to map them all but the basics should be mapped (First and Last Name, Address 1, Postcode, Country and Email) as this information is passed over to the payment gateway.

Click Save.

You can have multiple different payment gateways linked to one event.  These can also be restricted by attendee type.

To do this, click User Types and then double click on the attendee type you want to edit.

Select the Payments tab.

Select which payment gateways you want to be available for this user type by ticking the relevant boxes.

Click Save.

Only the options selected will be displayed when a user reaches the payment stage.
