Site Settings: Integrate with Braintree Payments


The Braintree Payment Platform allows you to accept Apple Pay, Venmo, BitCoin, Google Checkout, Paypal Express & Visa/Mastercard/Discover/American Express payments on your Acenda site.  

Braintree can act as Gateway/Merchant processor or as Gateway that connects to other merchant accounts.


To modify your Payment Platforms follow the steps below:

Enable Braintree Payments Gateway
1. Navigate to Braintree Payments website.
2. Create a new account or sign in to your existing Braintree account.  
3. Navigate to Braintree Payments Settings > API Keys

3. Scroll down to the Client Library Key section


4. Safely record the following values:

  • Public Key
  • Private Key (click the "View" button to expose the Private Key)
  • Merchant ID

5. Visit Acenda Admin > Payments > Payment Platforms



7. Enter the Braintree Client Library Key credentials in the Braintree section:


  • Currency: Select your currency
  • Merchant ID, Public Key, Private Key: Enter the values from the Braintree website API Key settings
  • Charge Method:  We highly recommend using "Authorize".  Cancellations prior to shipment are cleanest with with Authorize; since they automatically expire if you don't "delay capture". If you set to "Charge (Sale)" then cancelling orders can be a chore because you must wait until the transaction posts before cancelling. This can take 24 hours.
  • Sandbox: Select if you want to test transactions in Sandbox mode
  • Enable: Select to activate Braintree checkout

8. Click Save
