Spree User Documentation: Supported Gateways
Configure a supported payment gateway in Intellum E-commerce by selecting the Configuration tab and navigating to Payment Methods.
Add a New Payment Method
Follow these steps to add a new payment method and configure a payment gateway:
- Click New Payment Method.
- Select a payment gateway provider from the dropdown list (e.g. Stripe).
- Add the following information, as applicable, to create the new payment method:
Give the payment method a name (e.g. Credit Card, Pay with Card, etc.). The name you enter here will appear to users as a payment option at checkout.
Description is optional and only appears as an internal note.
Choose if the payment method appears on the front-end to the user, the back-end to an admin, or both.
The front-end is where users will see the payment method displayed as a payment option during checkout.
The back-end lets you make a payment option available to internal staff but not to users. For example, you might need to offer a back-end payment option to users on a one-off basis, and allow a representative from your company to process the payment via Purchase Order or other means.
Authorization with Auto-Capture is the most common type of credit card transaction. The amount is sent for authorization, and if approved, is automatically submitted for settlement.
Auto-Capture is turned on by default for new payment methods in Intellum E-commerce.
Select Yes if you want the payment method to go live. Select No to add the payment method, and return to make it active at a later date.
4. after defining each of the above settings, click Create to add the payment method and configure the payment gateway connection.

Add the required information and click Update at the bottom of the page to save the payment gateway configuration.
