What are the steps/process to add and Alternative payments in the Alternate payments dropdown? Just like "LAY-BUY powered by PayPal".
My company offers short term loans and want to add my company in the Alternate payments dropdown. We already have our APIs which we have used to integrate with Magento.
Koreen from the Shopify Guru team here, thanks for reaching out :)
The best way to add a payment gateway to the Alternate payments section is by setting up a free Partner account and working with the Hosted payment SDK. I've included some handy links for you below:
- Becoming a Shopify Partner: https://docs.shopify.com/partners/about
- Shopify API guides: https://docs.shopify.com/api
- Working with the Hosted Payment SDK: https://docs.shopify.com/api/sdks/hosted-payment-sdk
There are also some step by step instructions from Github for adding your own payment gatway. These can be found here: https://goo.gl/5Ab68a
You mention that you are looking to offer loans/ financing. There is also the option to do this via an app too. This may be something for you to consider? We do currently have some financing apps from within our app store that offer this. Perhaps you may like to build your own? I have included a link to these here for you to have a look at: https://goo.gl/bBzUg2
I hope this helps !
I'm working a partial payment provider from South Africa called LayUp
LayUp lets your pay over time, on your terms, interest free and with no credit checks.
We are finding it extremely difficult to find the channels to get this integration approved. We are currently building a integration that's very similar to the following: https://lay-buys.com/shop-ify-layby. The App works on the following basis, the Lay-Up extension integrates into a Shopify hosted website and is an add-on that provides your shopping cart with a further payment option of a Lay-Buy; allowing customers to select to pay a small deposit and then spread the remainder of the purchase over an agreed timeframe. After receipt of the complete payment, only then would you be required to ship the product(s) to the customer. In essence, what we have created works as a Down Payment or recurring payment option.
Do we require a Hosted Payment SDL approval to get an App like this approved?
