BlueSnap is a global payments company that believes every customer has the right to a seamless online experience and the ability to purchase easily, quickly, and securely. According to BlueSnap, since merchants spend countless hours bringing their products to market, they deserve the technology, tools, and support to create an exceptional buying experience.
Using this guide, it’s easy to connect Salesforce to the BlueSnap Payments gateway with the Chargent app. Chargent has many features to offer, including automating and streamlining Salesforce payment processes, easy subscription management, click-to-charge buttons, payment request emails, and more.
Connecting BlueSnap with Chargent gives you the ability to easily build a seamless process for completing payment for orders that you manage in Salesforce. The integration connects the BlueSnap gateway directly to Salesforce. Chargent also supports BlueSnap tokenization for processing credit card payments.
Your BlueSnap Sandbox Account
The first task is to get a sandbox / test account from BlueSnap so that you can run test transactions from Salesforce. To obtain a sandbox account, complete the form on the sign up page.
You will receive an email to verify your account. Click the link and fill out the necessary information. Once completed you will be able to access your BlueSnap Dashboard.
Whitelist IP Address
Login to your BlueSnap account. You will need to whitelist all of Salesforce IP addresses and ranges in order to process payments using your API username and password.
Click the Settings menu in the upper-right, then click the API Settings item to access the page, then scroll to the Authorized IPs section. Enter the new IP address that you need to whitelist, and then click the Add button.
Note: If you don’t want to use IP Verification you can disable this by clicking the check box below showing Disable IP Checking. This will allow you to send transactions to BlueSnap without verifying the IP address.
API User ID, API Password, and Store ID
Access the API settings page again (if you aren’t already there from whitelisting your IP addresses), and you will see your API Username, API Password , and Default Store ID . The API Username and Password must be specified when configuring the Gateway setup in Salesforce (we will discuss this more in the next section).
Prior to setting up BlueSnap in Salesforce
Prior to following the steps in this guide, Chargent should be installed in your Salesforce org and licenses assigned. If you have not yet installed, a 30 day free trial is available on our Installation Page.
