Setup and Configuration

Mijireh will handle securing the payment area of registration checkout. A dedicated SSL certificate is recommended to make other areas of your website more secure.

Login to your WP-admin (WP Dashboard) and go to Event Espresso –> General Settings –> Payment Methods. Once on the Payment Methods screen, click on Mijireh and click on the button to activate the payment method.

To give your audience more payment options, you can activate multiple payment methods at the same time. However, if you are offering just one payment option, then we recommend that you set that one payment method to be selected by default during registration checkout. That will simplify the check out process for your attendees.

The Mijireh slurp page lets you capture the design and layout of your existing checkout page and use it on a secure Mijireh payment page. This will secure the checkout process while maintaining the design of your own site.

Allow a few minutes for the process to complete and then you may unpublish or remove this WP page. It is only needed for the initial slurp process.
