The first thing you need to do is to contact Braintree and make an agreement with them to become your payment processor. When you have a contract with them in place, you can connect Braintree and Bokun.

How to connect Braintree and Bokun

Select "Payment providers" from the menu that appears when you select the gear icon in the top right hand corner of your screen.

Select "Connect a provider".

Select the Braintree Logo to add them as a payment option.

Select "Braintree Token".

Select a title for your Braintree connection. Braintree provides you with all the other information required. Please note the currency has to be the same as your contract with Braintree specifies. If your contract is in USD, you have to add USD here.

Make sure that there are no spaces in the fields, neither before or behind, the numbers. If there are spaces you will get an error message when you try to continue to payment in the booking process.

How do I start accepting payments using Braintree?

You need to activate the payment provider on your Booking channel (your online sales channel).

Your Booking channel delivers bookings and payments made on your website into Bokun. You can sign up for more than one payment providers, which is why you need to select the correct one. You can for example use one payment provider for your European market, and another one for your US market.

Click on Sales Tools in the top bar and click Booking Channels from the drop-down.

Select the booking channel you intend to add the payment provider to.

Navigate to Pricing and Payments in the left-hand side menu. Select your payment provider for this Booking channel from the drop-down menu and hit Continue.

Now you are set and ready to accept payments on your website.

Test your payment process

After you add the booking engine to your website, it's a good rule to create one booking and pay for it.
This is to test both the booking process and to check that your payment provider is working as it should be.
 Here is some information on how you can add a booking engine to your website and test the whole booking process.
