Please don't test your biller setup with Oakbill's test account—it won't work correctly.
Setting Up on Oakbill's Website
While registering with Oakbill, make sure to take down the Merchant ID, API, and Secret Key that they provide for you. This information will be necessary for setting up Oakbill in NATS3.
Note: You don't need to specify Postback and Return URL for when setting up up with Oakbilling; NATS dynamically sends the correct information during each transaction.
For each join option you plan to offer with Oakbill, click Tools, Websites, Subscriptions and Prices, and Add a subscription. After saving your new option, record its Subscription ID number.
Setting Up Oakbill in NATS
When prompted, fill out your transaction and chargeback fees, along with when you wish to deduct them. Fill in the Merchant ID, API, and Secret Key that were provided to you by Oakbill under the "Account Info" section. If you were not provided with this information, please contact your biller to receive it.
Next, go to the Sites Admin, create or edit a site, and scroll down to the "Join Options this Site Offers" section and create or edit a join option to add OAKBill compatibility. Under "Biller Codes for this Join Option," enter the Product ID (Subscription ID) for every join option you set up with Oakbill.
Save your changes once you have filled out the available fields on this page. Oakbill should now be ready and configured to process transactions in NATS3.
Oakbill also supports Cross Sell transactions through NATS. In order to process cross sale transactions, however, you will first have to set them up with Oakbill. Please contact your biller for assistance with this.
To set up cross sell in NATS, go to the Cross Sells Admin and click "Incoming" or "Outgoing" from the navigation tabs at the top of the page (depending on whether you are receiving or sending the cross sale).
If you are sending a cross sell to another site, go to the "Outgoing" section. Choose OAKBill from the "Biller" drop-down menu and click Add. On the next page, you will be prompted to fill in the Title, Description, and Disclaimer for your cross sell option.
You will then need to fill out the Biller Info for your cross sell, which should be provided to you by Oakbill. Fill in your Merchant ID, Product ID, and Ref Code here, and click "Edit." You can also choose if you want to Recalculate your Ref Code here. Save your changes once you have filled out the required fields.
If you are receiving the cross sell, go to the "Incoming" section. Choose OAKBill from the Biller drop-down menu, and click Add. When prompted, choose the site and program you want to associate with the cross sale option, and fill in the "Comment" field.
Under "Data," fill in the Merchant ID and Product ID that you received when registering with Oakbill. Finally, fill in your desired Initial Days (length of initial membership), Initial Dollar (cost of initial membership), Recurring Days (length of recurring membership), and Recurring Dollar (cost of recurring membership). You can also choose if you want this cross sell to be a trial membership with the "This is a Trial" checkbox here.
