The Openpay Connect application allows end-users to pay for their Internet plans using the Openpay payment gateway. This solution is suitable for accepting online payments in Mexico.
You can visit the Openpay official site to get information and updates about Openpay.
In order to set up this application in Volare, you'll need a merchant account.
Once you have your account, you will be able to find the following information that Volare needs to set up payments:
- Openpay ID
- Private Key
You'll have to allow your end-users to access the Openpay website before they are logged in. To do that, you need to set up the walled garden of your access point. To do this, read the articles, in the paragraph called "Walled garden".
Admin Panel configuration
You can find the "Openpay Connect" application in the Marketplace if it's available on your account. To get there, go to Manage → Apps and search in Integrations section.
After clicking on the "Openpay Connect" application, you will see a configuration screen asking for the following data of your account:
- Openpay ID
- Private Key
Once these parameters have been entered, you can activate the payment gateway by going to Manage → Preferences, then go to the Gateways tab and select "Openpay" as Provider Lists in the Online payments fieldset.
When this configuration is completed, any end-user who intends to use a paid Internet plan will be redirected to Openpay to complete the transaction. Please note that the payment procedure entirely takes place on the Openpay website and no sensitive information about bank account details or debit/credit card numbers is shared with Volare.
Currently, supported currencies are:
- Mexican Pesos (MXN)
- United States Dollars (USD)
You can visit the Openpay official site to find any update on this.
Please make sure that in the International settings of your Admin Panel, you selected a currency that is supported by Openpay. Otherwise, your guests will not be able to make the payment.
Required customer fields
Please note that Openpay requires the following data from the end-user:
- First name
- Last name
- Email address
So, in order to avoid any inconvenience, it is important that you set these registration fields as mandatory for your guests on your Splash Page. Otherwise, your guests will not be able to make the payment.
In order to get the connector working for your end-users, you have to add the following domains (and any related subdomains) to the walled garden of your access point:
