How do I setup Bambora to integrate with Lodgix?
NOTE: Beanstream was aquired by Bambora.com.
Login to the Bambora.com payment gateway here:
You will need to know three pieces of login information that your Bambora representative will have sent to you via email:
Step #1: Obtain Merchant ID
Once you have successfully logged in to your Bambora gateway you will need to obtain your Merchant ID for use within the Lodgix.com application. This may also have been sent to you via email. The Merchant ID can be found under the left menu item "Administration" and then by clicking on the "Company Info" menu item.
Make sure you keep the Merchant ID handy, because you will need to input it into the Payment Gateway Setup area within Lodgix.com.
Step #2: Obtain API Passcode
The second item you will need is your Payment Profiles API Pass Code. This can be found (or generated) by clicking on the "Configuration" menu item again, then clicking on the "Payment Profile Configuration" menu item. Scroll down that page and you will see an area entitled "Secure Payment Profile", look for the API Access Passcode. If it's not present like in the screenshot below, then either a) you have to use the generate new code" button or b) contact your account representative to enable the Payment Profiles functionality.
Step #3: Obtain Username & Password
Within the Bambora payment gateway, go to Administration --> Account --> Order Settings and scroll down to the area for "Use username / password validation against transaction" and define your username & Password.
Step #4: Go to Payment Gateway Setup within Lodgix.com
Enter Bambora Credentials
You will need to cut and paste your Merchant ID, API Pass Code, and your user defined Username and Password into the Payment Gateway Setup area within Lodgix. Make sure to select the types of credit cards you will be accepting and then click the SAVE button at the bottom of the screen.
Bambora setup is now complete.
The next step is to test your gateway to make sure it's setup correctly.
Additional configuration setting within the gateway
Make sure to turn off, "include billing phone number" as a required option. Our booking form will require it for you.
