Payment gateways

Payment gateways are documents creating a link between dokos standard invoicing and payments documents and external payment intermediates like Stripe, Braintree, GoCardless, Paypal, etc...

1. How are payment gateways structured

A new payment gateway is automatically created when you configure a new integration with a payment intermediate in dokos. E.g. When adding a new Stripe account called ABC, a payment gateway called Stripe-ABC will automatically be created in dokos.

A payment gateway is then linked to one or several accounts for each possible currency used in a payment. E.g. If you want to process payments in EUR and USD, you need to create two payment gateway accounts linked to your payment gateway:

  • One with the currency EUR, linked to an account in EUR
  • One with the currency USD, linked to an account in USD

Each time a payment is made through this payment gateway, the system assigns the payment entry to the right payment gateway account.

2. Settings

It is possible to define the following elements for each payment gateway:

  • For the automatically generated payment entries:

    • A mode of payment
    • A fee account: Used to book the payment provider's fees
    • A cost center
  • For the portal:

    • A title
    • An icon

Example: dokos payment page
