What does this add-on do?
This add-on will let you use the Pin Payments payment gateway to let your clients pay invoices with a credit card. Your clients will not need a Pin Payments account or anything other than a credit card to pay you.
Pin Payments allows you to accept payments from customers in multiple currencies. Check that your preferred currency is supported before creating a Pin Payments account.
Get a Pin Payment account
Before you can use this add-on you will need to create a Pin Payments account.
While Pin Payments has no hidden fees or monthly costs, you do get charged a small transaction fee only when you are paid.
Note: Rocket Apps is not involved in any transaction and consequently does not receive any fees or payment when using officially sanctioned add-ons.
How do I activate the add-on?
Activate the add-on like you would any other WordPress plugin. Go to Plugins -> Installed Plugins -> Invoice Rocket Pin Payments and hit Activate.
Once the add-on has been activated you will see a new option for Pin Payments in Invoice Rocket settings under the Payment Types heading.
How do I configure this add-on?
Before you can start accepting Pin payments you will be required to:
- Go to Invoice Rocket Settings
- Click on Payment Types
- Tick the Pin Payments checkbox
- Enter your Pin Payments Link into the Pin Payments link field
- Hit the Save Settings button
How do my clients pay?
When Pin Payments has been set up correctly, invoices sent to your clients will have a button in the right pane to pay by Credit Card.
Allow the customer to edit the invoice amount before paying
With this option enabled, the customer will be able to change the invoice total before submitting payment. This might be useful if you’re the type of business that doesn’t mind letting your customers make partial payments of their invoices.
Note: Allowing this option will not deduct the paid amount from the invoice. It will be up to you to work with the customer to getting the balance paid.
If you would like to run the Pin Payments extension in test mode, simply enable the option in Invoice Rocket settings -> Payments Types -> Pin.
While enabled, a message will appear at the top of all pages on the Invoice Rocket front-end reminding you that you are currently in test mode. Real payments will not work while in test mode.
Pin has several different test credit card credentials you can use for testing purposes. Any test transactions you complete will show up in your Pin dashboard when you switch over to Test mode.
