How to configure your Payment Gateway for your eCommerce Shop app in MobAppCreator

If you need to know why is are Payment Gateways a key feature of your shop app, please check out this article about Payment Gateways

MobAppCreator Shopping features were designed from our desire to equip all e-merchants with the technology that makes mobile shopping fun and powerful.

First of all, access to the latest technology at an affordable price. We are the pioneers of App Builders. It has been more than 10 years since our teams developed a unique know-how in this field. The apps you create completely independently with MobAppCreator compete with apps developed by developers.

Once you have added a few products using the ecommerce screen you can head to the Ecommerce Settings and configure your preferred gateway.

Each payment gateway has its own benefits and characteristics:

Stripe: Allows you to get paid with all major cards from customers around the world on the web or in mobile apps. It operates in 25 countries. Stripe has the additional advantage of presenting a barrier free and quick payment process. On the merchant side, it provides same day transfer payments into your bank account. In order to be able to use Stripe in your shop, you must have a Stripe account.

Once you have created and activated your Stripe account you only need to obtain your Publishable Key and Secret Key to start accepting payments

Make sure you use your LIVE keys otherwise the charges will only work as a sample and they will not charge the credit cards.

Check your Stripe documentation for more information.

PayPal: A worldwide real-time payment solution. It is one of the major payment networks used for online shopping on eCommerce sites. It provides a familiar experience for many users since it is widely integrated into many of the most used ecommerce sites. To use PayPal in your shop, you must have a PayPal Business account.

Add a descriptive name for your PayPal integration then add your Client ID and Secret Key. To make live transactions, you must upgrade to a PayPal business account.

Log into Dashboard and type your PayPal account email and password.

On the My Apps & Credentials page, toggle to Live of the app you want to create or edit:

  • To create an app, click Create App in the REST API apps section.
  • Type a name for your app and click Create App.
  • Copy and save your API credentials — the client ID and secret for your app
  • Add your Client ID and Secret in your Mobappcreator Paypal integration box

Mercado Pago: Mercado Pago is a South-American -based digital payment platform available to consumers and businesses exclusively in Latin America. Since its launch, Mercado Pago has been rolled out across the region in eight key countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. To be able to use Mercado Pago in your shop, you must first have an account.

Once you created an account at MercadoPago, go to the credentials section on MercadoPAgo and create your Public Key and Access Token to add it to your eCommerce dashboard under Mercadopago. For more details please visit the MercadoPago documentation

Offline Payment/Bank Transfer: if online payment is not for you (you don’t want to deal with setting up an account with the different gateways, they are not available in your country or you don’t want to pay additional fees on your transactions), then this is the best solution for your shop. With the offline payment add-on, you are free to set up payment outside the app in a way that fits your needs (Cash-on-delivery, bank transfer, etc.). You can always have offline payments as an additional payment option for your customers.

Fill in the buyer instructions with the bank account information for receiving your payments or provide instructions on how to pay at your location.
