Configure a Payment Gateway

Setting up a payment gateway is a crucial step in configuring your WHMCS installation. If you want to receive payments from your customers, you must activate at least one payment gateway.

For more information on payment gateways in WHMCS, see Payment Gateways.

Configure a Payment Gateway

To configure a payment gateway:

  1. Go to the appropriate interface in the WHMCS Admin Area.
    • If you use WHMCS 8.6 or later, go to Configuration () > Apps & Integrations and choose the Payments category.
      Payment Gateways in Apps & Integrations
    • If you use WHMCS 8.5 or earlier, go to Configuration () > System Settings > Payment Gateways and choose All Payment Gateways.

    WHMCS includes many supported payment gateways by default, and you can find more in the WHMCS Marketplace.
  3. Click Activate. The system will redirect you to the configuration form for that payment gateway.
    Each payment gateway requires its own set of credentials, which vary from gateway to gateway. For more information, see the documentation for your payment gateway module.
  4. Click Save Changes.
  5. Repeat these steps for each payment gateway you want to use.
