During the onboarding process, you will be asked to provide:

  • your Business name,
  • your Business information, such as the type of business,
  • your Business website address.



Step 3: After logging into your Kinesis Pay Merchant Dashboard, simply click the ‘Download SDK’ button to open up the Kinesis GitHub page from where you can download the "Kinesis Pay WooCommerce" SDK file onto your desktop.



You will then need to install this file onto your online merchant website.

Currently, the Kinesis Pay plug-in is only supported on WooCommerce platforms, such as WordPress.

Merchants will need to generate their unique set of Merchant API Keys, which can be found on the Kinesis platform dashboard. 

For further information, Merchants can find instructions on how to use the Kinesis Pay WooCommerce SDK plug-in in the file titled ‘README’ included in the download.
