To be able to use Paysafe (formally known as Optimal Payments) for Virtuagym payments, you will need a Paysafe account. This can be created from within your portal.
Please note that for each business type there are different on-boarding links.
Select your country and business and set up your PaySafe account.
Do you already have a Paysafe account? Please, send an email to email@example.com with the merchant’s account number and the new rates the merchant should be given and Paysafe will make the adjustments.
Start with your payment
As soon as you've created an account, go to Business Settings > Payments in Virtuagym. Here, under "available payment providers", you can tick the box Paysafe. Under "Paysafe merchant account", enter the "Paysafe API Key" and your "Paysafe Account Number" that is attached to your Paysafe account. Save it.
Now you can go to your financial app, find any invoice and under options at the top right of your screen, click on "email including pay-link". This will send the invoice as a PDF to the client, with the link to Paysafe to immediately pay the outstanding amount.
If you want to email more than 1 invoice to clients, you can select multiple invoices from the invoice overview. Select all the invoices, click top left on options, and click on "email including pay-link". Now, all invoices including the payment link will be sent to your clients.
When clients open the email, and click on the payment link, they are redirected to the Paysafe payment portal. There, they can fill in their information and do their first payment.
When the payment of the client goes through, this is automatically updated in Virtuagym.

When the first payment is successful, the next payment can be executed via the Virtuagym portal. There are 2 ways to do it.
First way: If their payment is successful the first time, you will see in the invoice of the client, a button with 'Paysafe'. You can click on this button, and the payment will be processed.
