Using 1ShoppingCart as Your Payment Gateway
Get 1ShoppingCart API Key and Merchant ID
To set up your 1ShoppingCart integration, first log in to your 1ShoppingCart account.
- In the top menu, go to My Account -> API -> API Settings
- If you do not have an API Key already, click Generate New API Key. Once you have an API Key, copy the key, but leave this page open. We will come back to it with our Notification URL in a moment.
Go to My Account -> Status Summary, and locate your Merchant ID. You will need to reference this in the next step.
Add API Key to Zippy Courses
- In Zippy Courses, go to Settings -> Payment, and select 1ShoppingCart.
- Paste your Merchant API Key and Merchant ID.
- Click Save Changes.
- Make a note of your Notification URL and Thank You URL - You will need these in later steps.
- Click on General Settings, and set your Payment Method to 1ShoppingCart.
- Click Save Changes.
Create your Product
Before we create your product, return to your API Settings page. Paste your Notification URL that was generated by Zippy Courses into the Notification URL box on this page.
Now that you have integrated 1ShoppingCart with Zippy Courses, you need to create products for each of your pricing options in 1ShoppingCart.
- In 1ShoppingCart, click on Products -> Manage Products.
- On this page, click on Create New.
- Enter the details for your product’s description.
- Click on the Links tab, and enter the Thank You URL from your Zippy Courses Payment settings.
- When you are finished, click Save. Note your Page URL - you will use that to link your course with a pricing option.
Create your Product in Zippy Courses
We’re in the home stretch now. We just need to add the Zippy Courses pricing option to your course.
Under Zippy Courses in your WordPress admin dashboard, and select the Products menu and click Add New Product.
- Set your product information. These pricing details are for on-site use only, so make sure that they match the details configured in your 1ShoppingCart product.
- Enter the Order Form URL for your 1ShoppingCart Product.
- Select the 1ShoppingCart product you created from the dropdown list.
- Once that is complete, hit Update or Publish on your course.
Now your Product URL will automatically direct to your 1ShoppingCart product. When the purchase is completed, the student will be granted access to your course and redirected to your Zippy Courses’ Thank You page.
