YenePay is an online payment platform operating in Ethiopia that provides a convenient, easy and secure way for customers to make payments, send/receive money and more, right from their smart phones or laptops. Our platform was developed to facilitate e-commerce businesses to flourish in our country by handling the payment processing headache for businesses, while providing an easily accessible payment method for their customers.
This section provides an overview of a typical process to add YenePay as an online payment option on your site or mobile app and start collecting payment from your customers.
- If you have a website or mobile app that you use to make your products or services available to your customers, the first step would be to integrate this with our payment platform. Depending on the technology used to develop your website or application, we have prepared SDKs and plugins that could fit your need. Please see our Integration Guide articles for details on how to do this.
- Once the integration is completed, the YenePay payment method will be available on your website or application for your customers to choose. When your customers select this method to make their payment, they will be redirected to YenePay’s Checkout page and will be requested to login with their YenePay account. Once authenticated, they can select from the available payment methods and proceed to complete the payment. To learn more about your customers’ experience during making a payment, please check our Customer’s Payment Experience article.
- After your customer completes a payment through YenePay, our platform will send an Instant Payment Notification (IPN) to your website or application if you have provided a IPN URL along with the payment order when redirecting your customer to make the payment. If you didn’t, we will check your settings for IPN URL and use that to send you this notification. We strongly recommend having an IPN URL on your site to get a timely notification when a payment has been successfully made and verified by your customer.
- Verify that this instant payment notification is authentic by querying our IPN verification API. You should only mark a transaction complete on your site when you receive a verification from this API call.
We have prepared plugins and SDKs available for multiple platform to help developers with the integration process. The above steps are further discussed in detail on our Integration Guide articles.
