Configuring Braintree to process payments on your site is as simple as grabbing your Merchant ID and API Keys from Braintree, pasting them into your MemberMouse payment settings, and saving your changes. After doing this, MemberMouse will use the Braintree API to process credit card payments initiated from your site and store all critical credit card information securely with Braintree in order to support MemberMouse's 1-click buy functionality.  


You can configure Braintree to be in test mode or live mode. While live mode is used during the day-to-day operation of your site to collect real credit card information and process real payments, test mode is useful during the initial development of your site, allowing you to make purchases using a test credit card and without spending real money. Read this article to learn more about testing with Braintree.


NOTE: The Braintree integration will connect with the Default Merchant Account associated with the Merchant ID. 


Follow the steps below to configure Braintree:


  1. Go to MemberMouse > Payment Settings and click on the Payment Methods tab.

  2. Under Onsite Payment Method, select Braintree.

  3. Specify whether you want to use test mode by checking the box. While in test mode, you'll be able to use test credit cards so you can make purchases on your site without spending real money.



  4. Specify whether to use Hosted Fields / 3D Secure 2.0 by checking the box (Recommended - MemberMouse v2.3.0+ only). This setting must be enabled to comply with the Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirement of PSD2. For more information, please see this article on Strong Customer Authentication and 3D Secure.


    Important Note: Your Braintree Merchant Account must be enrolled in 3D Secure 2.0 to successfully accept payments using this technology. Please follow these instructions to confirm your enrollment. If you find that you are not enrolled in both 3D Secure 1.0 and 3D Secure 2.0, please contact Braintree to request enrollment.


  5. Depending on if you're in test mode or not, copy the sandbox or live Merchant ID from Braintree and paste it into MemberMouse.




  6. Depending on if you're in test mode or not, copy the sandbox or live API Public Key from Braintree and paste it into MemberMouse.




  7. Depending on if you're in test mode or not, copy the sandbox or live API Private Key from Braintree and paste it into MemberMouse.




  8. Click the button.

Your site is now ready to start accepting credit card payments and processing them through your Braintree account. Since you'll be collecting sensitive data on your site you'll need to ensure that you have an SSL certificate configured for your domain and that you're using HTTPS on pages that collect sensitive data (i.e. checkout pages).
