How to sell downloadable or PIN-related products on WordPress sites using VoguePay.

The product management module of VoguePay allows you to setup sales of digital products on your site. We covered this guideline in this post. To make it easier, we have developed PIN dispenser plugins which easily integrates with your wordpress website.

STEP 1: HOW TO DOWNLOAD, ACTIVATE AND SET UP VOGUEPAY PIN DISPENSAL.

The first step is to download the plugin here, upload it to your plugin directory and activate it.

Downloadable

 

After downloading the plugins, install it in the plugin directory on your website. (If you have not installed a plugin before, this guide will help),

When it is activated, you will be able to see the plugin among other installed plugins.

To start selling downloadable PIN products, you simply go to setting in your wordpress dashboard.

  • Click settings and click on the VoguePay Pin Dispenser
  • Enter your Merchant ID and click on update settings

NOTE: Your merchant ID can be seen on the left hand side of your VoguePay dashboard.

Now your VoguePay PIN dispensal is now fully set up and you can start using it to sell digital downloads.

 

STEP 2: HOW TO SET UP DIGITAL DOWNLOAD LINK FOR YOUR PRODUCT.

The Voguepay PIN dispenser plugin is not independent; it fetches data from the product code you created with the product management module. That means that you need to have created the product information in your VoguePay account.

  • Proceed to create your product category on the Voguepay website and get the product code. For detailed and pictorial explanations, kindly refer to our blog post on How to buy and sell digital products (LINK)

For this example, here is a product category created in our VoguePay account.

Downloadable

  • Copy the Product code and keep it (you will need it later)
  • Go back to your website dashboard to create a new post. This is going to be the product page where you will display the product for sale. The format for the product is [voguepay item=”scratch card” code=”8979770h6j6j67″]
  • Replace the “scratch card” with your item name and the code with Product code as obtained from the product category.

 

The draft post page looks like this:

  • Publish the post so that your users can buy using your link.

Buyers will be redirected to a secured payment page powered by Voguepay to pay for the product.

Your buyers can use any means of payment activated on your account to make payment. On successful payment, buyers get the product immediately.

      Thanks for getting in touch sir,

      The PIN feature is available to all accounts (personal or business) on VoguePay. However, business accounts provide you the opportunity to accept payment from VISA, MasterCard and wallet transactions (including privilege to be considered for International gateway). You can upgrade you account and perform business verification to enjoy these benefits.

    The URL in first comment is wrong. Hello admin, u need to include this shopping cart API link: https://voguepay.com/tool-cart in developer menu as this will enable us to generate and gain access to SHOPPING CART and ADD TO CART BUTTON code. More grace to Voguepay

  4. Please Admin, I have a News website and this website has a sub domain, the sub domain is where i have hundreds of downloadable digital product, and it’s open for everyone to access no matter where you are in the world hence you’re subscribed member of the website, since subscription is not free. I need a payment gateway on the site. Someone recommended Voguepay to me, but i don’t know how to embed all this code to my site, I need help fast, I’m in Lagos Nigeria. Thanks
