This manual is meant for first time users of the Pronamic Pay plugin. Pronamic Pay is the bridge between WordPress e-commerce plugins and payment providers. Before you start with your configuration some preperations are necessary.
Before we start
- Activate e-commerce plugin
You need a supported e-commerce plugin activated in your WordPress install. Examples are much used plugins like WooCommerce (webshops), Gravity Forms (order/registration forms) or Event Espresso (selling event tickets). Watch the complete list of supported plugins on the productpage.
- Connect with a payment provider
A payment provider is needed to actually process payments. We are not a payment provider ourself, you need an account with an payment provider or bank for this. We support the most popular payment providers and banks. The Pronamic Pay plugin makes the connection between the used payment provider and e-commerce plugin.
When you fixed this you are ready to start with the Pronamic Pay plugin. We try to make the plugin as user-friendly as possible. After following the following steps you can start receiving payments via WordPress.
