How do I setup Stripe.com to integrate with Lodgix.com
Setting up a Stripe.com only takes a few minutes. Once complete all you need is their LIVE SECRET KEY to connect it to Lodgix.
Stripe.com provides merchant accounts to vacation rental owners and managers in 18 countries including Australia, Canada, Europe, UK and the USA
Live Secret Key Location
When logged into Stripe.com, you can find the API area in the left navigation. From here you will want to copy the LIVE SECRET KEY.
Lodgix Gateway Setup
To enter your Stripe.com credentials within Lodgix, please go to Settings > Payment Gateway Setup
- Choose "Stripe" as your payment gateway
- Choose "Stripe" as your child gateway.
- Enter the LIVE SECRET KEY from Stripe.com
- Enable pre-auths (don't do this unless you actually process pre-auths, you can always enable this later)
- Click "Save"
That's it! The Stripe.comis now setup to use with Lodgix.com.
IMPORTANT: NOW PLEASE TEST YOUR GATEWAY TO ASSURE THAT IT IS WORKING CORRECTLY. That tutorial will also show you how to process credit cards within Lodgix.
Occasionally an error will be generated for new stripe accounts. The error message reads: Sending credit card numbers directly to the Stripe API is generally unsafe. To continue processing use Stripe.js, the Stripe mobile bindings, or Stripe Elements. For more information, see https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/integration/settings
To resolve this error and process payments normally, please manually enable the integration by following the link below. From there, click on " Show Advanced Options" then "Integration" and enable "Process payments unsafely."
We have been assured by Stripe that it is safe to send the information this way, since Lodgix is PCI compliant.
