Overview

In this guide you will learn how to integrate Katpault with WooCommerce to provide a no credit, lease-to-own payment option for your customers.

Before Getting Started

Before beginning your integration, please review the following:

  • Online Checkout Flow
  • Your current checkout process to understand how Katapult will impact operations and customers.
  • Leasable Items
  • Deployment Checklist
  • Tax Exemption Management: Katapult is a wholesale merchant and our WooCommerce Extension is built to update orders accordingly. Please make sure you have reviewed how this will impact your internal processes for reconciling orders.
  • Confirm all your products have SKUs & item descriptions. Katapult needs these details for an order to be successful. Products without a SKU may result in a failed checkout, typically resulting in the customer being unable to move past the customer validation screen.

Once your merchant agreement has been completed, you will receive an email with your sandbox login credentials and tokens. If you have not received your tokens, please reach out to [email protected].

Attribute Updates

We request that our partnered merchants manage their inventory and updated products as leasable or non leasable by utilizing the attributes in WooCommerce. To remain in compliance with our agreement please review our leasable and non leasable items.

If your products are Simple Products and Product_Variants they may execute Mysql query. This query will grab all products and update the attribute to Yes.
