Getting started

This manual is intended for users who are going to use the Pronamic Pay plugin for the first time. Pronamic Pay (formerly Pronamic iDEAL) is the bridge between e-commerce plugins and payment providers. Before you start with the configuration, some preparation is therefore required:

  1. There must be a supported ecommerce plugin be active in WordPress. Examples of commonly used plugins are WooCommerce (web stores), Gravity Forms (order forms, registration forms, etc.) or Event Espresso (participant registration for events). Watch the full list of plugins that we support.
  2. A payment provider takes care of the actual processing of payment transactions. We are not a payment provider, so you need to close an account with a payment provider or bank (Chamber of Commerce registration required). We support the most popular payment providers and banks. The Pronamic Pay plugin makes the link between the chosen payment provider and the e-commerce plugin.
