You can have more than one gateway set up for your store. However, you cannot use the same gateway twice.


Stripe Payments

  • Choose a payment name. This is the name the customer will see when selecting their payment type.
  • Choose the Stripe gateway.
  • Enter your publishable key.
  • Enter your secret key.
  • Click Done.

Your Stripe payments are now set up.

Note: You cannot make stripe payments for less than $0.50 in Vend Ecommerce.


PayPal Payments

To setup Paypal, you'll need to fill out the correct API credentials for your Paypal account. You'll also need to have a PayPal Business account so that your account talks to the live PayPal servers.

Gift Card Payments

Vend Gift Cards are now redeemable within your Vend Ecommerce store. Before getting started with this, you must first make sure you've got the Gift Cards feature enabled in Vend. For more information on how to do this, check out this link here.

Once you've enabled Gift Cards in your Vend store, you'll need to setup Gift Cards as a payment gateway in your Vend Ecommerce Settings.

To do this, follow the steps below:

1. Login to your Vend Ecommerce Admin page.

2. Click on Settings in the sidebar and select Payment Methods.

3. Type in a payment name (Gift Card for example).

3. Choose Gift Card under Vend Payment Type.

4. Choose Gift Card under Gateway.

5. Make sure enabled is switched on and save your changes.

If you have your Ecommerce store set in Offline mode, the gift card redemption process will not work. If you wish to test the process, make sure your store is set to Online.

Note: If your customer has chosen the gift card payment method, they must pay for the sale in full with the Gift Cards. Partial payments are not currently supported in Vend Ecommerce.
