Create a Subscription Plan with Braintree
Next, you will need to create a plan in your Braintree Control Panel. The plan will be used to populate information such as amount, currency, and billing cycle when a new subscription is created. Make sure to configure the plan with the same monetization settings you wish to use in Zype’s Make Money section.
Monetization Settings in Zype
Click on the Gear at the top of the Zype Dashboard and select Settings from the dropdown menu.
Navigate to the Monetization tab. Make sure to enter your Merchant ID and key pair under the Braintree Settings section to accept payments for plans using Braintree, and select Braintree as your Default Payment Type.
Confirming Your Subscription Plan in Zype
If you have not created a subscription plan in Zype, visit our help center article for detailed instructions on how to create a subscription plan.
If a subscription has already been created, please confirm that the Braintree ID has been entered for this plan, the default cost, billing cycle and billing date match up with the Braintree plan you set up earlier in this post and that the plan is active in Zype.
After setting up the PayPal integration through Braintree, your consumers will have the option to pay for subscriptions, purchases, or rentals through Zype using their personal PayPal account. This creates a simple, seamless, payment flow for your clients. Visit our Help Center for full setup instructions.
