In order for clients to utilize the payment option on the Pet Portal, you will need to contact Vantiv to create a HostedCheckout eCommerce account. They will send you a PDF with instructions on how to generate your Pet Portal Merchant ID and Pet Portal Password. Per Vantiv, the Pet Portal Merchant ID will always be a number and not an email address. Once you have this information you are ready to enable payments through the Pet Portal.
Note: Pet Portal payments are only available for practices using the Worldpay (Vantiv) Payment Systems. Payments are required to be made in full. Partial payments are not allowed, and refunds are not allowed. If you have the option to "Allow for storing of tokenized cards" selected under your Payment settings, the credit card token information will be stored under the clients account and can be used to make future payments in eVetPractice.
We recommend you create a payment type called "Online Payment" to be used for all of your portal payments.
After creating your payment option, go to Settings > Client Site menu and select the "Allow payments from portal?" option, then select the "Payment option used when recording client payment?" which will be the Online Payment created above.
To enable payments on your Pet Portal, click on Settings > Payments menu. Under the Vantiv payment settings, enter the "Pet Portal Merchant ID" and "Pet Portal Password". Then Save your settings.
You are now ready to accept online payments through your pet portal. When a client logs into the portal, they will see their invoice and a "Make a Payment" option.
After selecting the "Make a Payment" button, clients will be able to enter their credit card information and submit payment. Payments must be made in full.
