Payment Gateways

To set the payment Gateways, you need to have your Booking enabled from MEC Settings then choose your desired gateway. After enabling the Booking Module, a new item will be added to MEC Settings, named “Payment Gateway,” and as you can see in the image below, you can set any of the options in this menu for your ticket reservation.

  • Pay Locally: makes it possible to test the payment method and also purchase a ticket on your localhost.
  • PayPal Express / PayPal Credit / Card Stripe: are the payment methods available in MEC, which need APIs and Secret Keys from their providers. If these APIs and Keys are not set up correctly, then the payment process won’t complete.
  • Pay by WooCommerce: you can find everything about this option in the following link: here

It’s worth mentioning that in the comment section, you can use HTML code (or any other code) to display the cards available for purchase. (*)

Having the same issue with Stripe. Everything is at the latest version but all I get is the word "Stripe", the word "Name", an empty field for "Name", and the words "Credit or debit card" with no fields to fill out credit card information.

Any suggestions on the Strip and PayPal settings. I cannot get either one to work. With Stripe the plug-in is not providing the credit card information fields. Paypal always tells me that the "Payment is invalid". I have entered all credentials as shown in the instructions. Help is very much appreciated.
