FAQ Q333: How do I set up my SimplePay account?

For general information about accepting payments in Planyo see Q121: I'd like to accept credit card payments for the reservations.
First, select SimplePay on the Online payments page.
Next, enter your Merchant ID and Secret key. In SimplePay you have a few sets of credentials, separate for each currency. Enter those that match the currency of your Planyo site.
In order to find the credentials, go to your SimplePay account, click Partner and choose the appropriate currency account. Next, open the Technical tab. Merchant ID is at the top and Secret key in the Transaction validation section.
Additionally, you need to setup IPN notifications. This way we are informed by SimplePay about transaction updates. You can do this on the same tab.
In the IPN URL field enter: https://www.planyo.com/payment-simplepay-ipn.php
Select all notification types listed below.
Before you start receiving live transactions, SimplePay will run testing of your website. Your website needs to show certain content required by SimplePay. You can do this by modifying templates in your Planyo site.
First, go to Reservation payment template on Site settings / Templates. The page where the guest starts the payment transaction needs to show Data Transfer Declaration. This informs the guest that their order and/or personal data to third party (in this case SimplePay).
In the template, put the following declaration replacing the information field marked with [brackets] with the data of your company.
I acknowledge the following personal data stored in the user account of [Company Name] ([Company address]) in the user database of [Payment Acceptance Website] will be handed over to OTP Mobil Ltd. who is trusted as data processor. The data transferred by the data controller are the following:
[data transmitted by the merchant]
The nature and purpose of the data processing activity performed by the data processor in the SimplePay Privacy Policy can be found at the following link: http://simplepay.hu/vasarlo-aff
In place of [data transmitted by the merchant] you can enter: 'personal details entered on the reservation page and the transaction amount'.
Next, open Reservation completed template. Depending on the transaction result, you need to show the guest an appropriate status.
For all transaction results (success, cancel, timeout and fail) we store the appropriate text in a reservation property. You can show it in the template by placing the following code:
You can of course add CSS styling to make this text more visible to the guest.
