Pay page branding

Overview

The Pay Page screen is where you view and edit the branding style for the payment page. It can only be viewed by Merchant Admin Users.

The Portal’s branding is set at startup, and cannot be changed except for the Payment Page. The system comes with a Payment Page style installed, and if you want to keep the default style, there is no need to do anything.

Merchant Admin Users can however customise this style to better fit the Payment Page with their own website. If a Merchant Admin User changes a custom branding option, it will be set as the default for all children nodes, unless a Merchant Admin User changes that custom option for the child node.

Example

Using the hierarchy graph above as an example; The “ACME” merchant organisation node sets the Pay Page’s Subheading font colour to pink at onboarding. So all nodes in the merchant organisation have that as their default Subheading font colour.
If a Merchant Admin User for the “ACME France” Unit node changes the Subheading font colour from pink to red, all its children nodes will have that as their default Subheading font colour.
But if a Merchant Admin User for the “ACME Paris” Unit node wants to, they can change their Subheading font colour from red to blue. Their children node (“Paris Shop” Outlet) will now have blue as its Subheading font colour. However, the “ACME Lyon” and “ACME Nice” nodes and their children nodes’ Subheading font colour will still be red.

Open Pay Page screen

  1. Select the Settings option from the top Main menu bar. The Settings menu bar displays, with the Users page open by default.
  2. Click on the Pay Page menu option. The Pay Page screen displays.

Edit Branding

The Branding page is where you change the style and fonts of the Payment Page. This is so the appearance on your Payment Page is in line with your website style.

If a Merchant Admin User with higher permission changes a custom option, it will be set as the default style for all Users with less permission, if they don’t change that option. If they change that option, their choice will be set as the style for their Payment Page.

Example

The Germany (organisational unit) Admin User sets options of:

  • “Module Logo; Acme Germany” (this is a URL)
  • “Colours - Buttons and Arrows; Pink #D40E7D”
  • “Colours - Background; Dark Pink #AF0B67”, and
  • “Fonts - English: Body Copy; Georgia”.
    The Germany Berlin (organisational unit) Admin User, who has less permission than the Germany Admin User, only sets the options of:
  • “Module Logo; Acme Berlin” (this is a URL), and
  • “Colours - Background; Pale Green #73BF6A”
    The Germany Berlin Payment Page will show the following options:
  • “Module Logo; Acme Berlin logo”
  • “Colours - Buttons and Arrows; Pink #D40E7D”
  • “Colours - Background; Pale Green #73BF6A” and
