CabGrid Pro can process debit or credit card payments out of the box via Paypal. To do this, a registered Paypal ID (usually an email address) should be added to the ‘Paypal ID & Currency:’ field under the OPTIONS tab on the CabGrid Pro admin page in the WordPress admin section.
If a Paypal ID is entered, a payment button will be presented to the customer at the end of the booking process. When clicked, the customer will be directed to Paypal’s website to make a payment. At the end of the payment process, the customer will be invited to return to your home page. Note, it is not guaranteed that the customer will return to your site as it relies on their action (to click the link).
If the Booking Management add-on is installed, the payment will be recorded against the booking. Otherwise, a separate email from Paypal will confirm that payment has been made.
[NOTE: From July 2018, Paypal will require a website to use https in order to receive payment notifications.]
If no ID is entered, the Paypal payment button will not be shown after the booking form is submitted. It will also not be an option for paying after booking via the Booking Management Add-on.
Paypal accepts a wide range of currencies (but not every currency). Following the Paypal ID box under the CabGrid Pro OPTIONS tab, there is a currency drop down. (This is independent of the currency symbol that can be specified at the top of the OPTIONS tab.) A currency should be selected here. This should be a currency already available in the Paypal account. Paypal accounts can be denominated in several currencies.
If Paypal is not a suitable payment processing solution, we have created an add-on plugin that integrates with the Stripe online card payment processing service. If enabled this will also be made available as payment button at the end of the booking process or via the acceptance email link.
Deposit or Part Payment with Paypal
Using PayPal with the CabGrid Stripe Add-on
As of version 3.2.2, the CabGrid Stripe add-on also provides an option to check out with Paypal. This option is more tightly integrated with the Stripe checkout interface and is recommended when Stripe is enabled. When in use, the Paypal ID should be removed from the CabGrid Pro OPTIONS tab.
