Setup and Configuration
You need to connect your store to Braintree, then configure plugin settings.
Connect to Braintree: US, UK, FR Merchants
Merchants from US, UK and FR can connect to Braintree using a few clicks, without the need to find and manually enter API credentials.
To connect to Braintree, go to Settings > Store > Payments > PayPal powered by Braintree (credit card or PayPal). Click the Settings link under the gateway name.
To connect to a production account, use the Connect with Braintree button.
Either enter your details to create an account, or click the “Log in” link to connect an existing Braintree account.
Authorize WP eCommerce to use your Braintree account to process payments.
Accept the redirection back to your store, and you’re ready to configure the plugin settings!
Connect to Braintree: Non-US, UK, FR Merchants
Merchants from countries that can’t use the Connect feature, can connect to Braintree by entering API credentials manually. If you don’t have an account already, you can use this New Account link to signup.
First, log into your Braintree Control Panel. Go to Account > My User to access your user profile.
From this page, click View API Keys under Authorization.
If you have any keys generated, access them here or generate new keys. Click View to see your keys or generate new ones.
While viewing keys, you need to copy the Public Key, Private Key, and Merchant ID.
Now log into your WP eCOmmerce store and go to Settings > Store > Payments > PayPal powered by Braintree (credit card or PayPal). Copy and paste your Merchant ID, Public Key, and Private Key to their respective text boxes on the settings page under Connection Settings:
That’s it! These credentials can be used with the PayPal gateway too.
