Step 3) For this example, the Payment Settings will be reviewed, however the Free Ad option for this plugin will be used.

Credit System

Payment Settings

C. Charge Listing Fee? If checked, people will use Fee Plans to pay for the Ads. Leave this field unchecked if you never want to charge for any Ads.

For this example, this field was left unchecked.

D. Fee Plan sort order If Charge Listing Fee was checked, select a Sort Order for the Fee Plan from the dropdown list.

For this example, no change was made.

E. Fee Plan sort direction If Charge Listing Fee was checked, select a Sort Direction for the Fee Plan from the dropdown list.

For this example, no change was made.

F. Pay before entering Ad details If Charge Listing Fee was checked, and you want to ask for payment before entering Ad details, leave this field checked.

Remove the checkmark if you want users to pay for Ads at the end of the process (after images have been uploaded).

For this example, this field was unchecked.

G. Currency used in payment pages If Charge Listing Fee was checked, enter your 3 (three) character Currency Code in this textbox. This Currency will be used to process payments.

For this example, this field was not changed.

H. Put payment gateways in test mode? If Charge Listing Fee was checked, and this field is checked, you can test your Payment Selection and no payments will be processed.

If Charge Listing Fee was checked, and this field is unchecked, this plugin will accept Real Payments.

For this example, this field was left unchecked.

I. Force secure URLs on payment pages If Charge Listing Fee was checked, and this field is checked, all Classifieds pages that involve payments will be accessed through a secure (HTTPS) URL.

Do not enable this feature if your server does not support HTTPS.

For this example, this field was left unchecked.
