Adding the LinkPoint Payment Gateway

To set up the LinkPoint payment gateway in WHMCS:

  1. Go to Configuration () > Apps & Integrations or Addons > Apps & Integrations.
  2. Click LinkPoint.
  3. Check Show on Order Form to display this payment method in the Client Area during checkout.
  4. Enter your LinkPoint credentials:
    • The store number is the number that LinkPoint assigned to you during signup.
    • The key file is the file that you need to download from your account with them and then upload to your server.
      • Enter the full path to the uploaded file (for example, /home/username/pem1423.key).
      • We recommend you store it outside of the publicly-accessible folder tree.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Test Mode

You can use test mode to simulate payment processing without actually causing a transaction to occur. This can be useful for testing your configuration.


If you see a connection-related error, check to ensure that port 1129 is open in your server’s firewall.
