Set up BlueSnap payment gateway

Note: Previously, we had been setting the SkinID inside the Finalsite Payment screen. You are no longer required and should not complete that step. Please leave that field blank.

To begin using Finalsite Payments powered by BlueSnap, connect with BlueSnap to set up your account. Once your account is created, you can easily integrate it with Forms Manager and Registration Manager on your Finalsite website. This is referred to as the payment gateway setup.

From your Composer modules menu, click on “Site Administration,” then “Modules & Settings,” then “Site Administration,” then “Site Modules.”

Click on “Payment” in the left-hand menu.


On the form that appears, the following fields will need to be filled out: Gateway Name, Merchant ID, API Username, API Password, Accepted Currency, and Skin ID. You will also check the “Enable this payment gateway” checkbox.

The Gateway Name is how BlueSnap gateway will be referred to in internal reporting. You should give it a name that tells what the gateway is used for, such as “Annual Fund” or “School Store.”

“Enable this payment gateway” means that the gateway will be available for use in Forms Manager and Registration Manager.

In Forms Manager, the gateway will appear on the list of radio buttons on the Payments tab.

In Registration Manager, the gateway will be shown in the dropdown menu on the Additional Settings screen.

Your Merchant ID is a six-digit number that can be found at the top of your BlueSnap dashboard, directly above the account balance. Paste it into the field without the number (#) sign.

To find your API Username, hover over the Settings icon in BlueSnap and select “API Settings.” The username appears in the “API Credentials” box.

If you do not remember your API password, contact BlueSnap Support to have it reset.

Use the checkboxes to select the currencies you would like to process from the available options.

Once you have completed the form, click the “SAVE SETTINGS” button. That’s it! The BlueSnap gateway is now available for use as a payment method on forms and registration events.
