Bluem ePayments, iDIN and eMandates integration for shortcodes and WooCommerce checkout

Description

The Bluem WordPress and WooCommerce integration allows you to connect your website to Bluem’s ePayments (betalen en betalingen ontvangen), eMandates (digitaal incasso machtigen), iDIN Identity services & age 18+ verification (identificeren, 18+ check) and IBAN-Name check (IBAN naam check).
Concretely, the plug-in delivers:

  • a payment gateway to accept eMandate transactions within a WooCommerce-activated website
  • a payment gateway to accept ePayment transactions within a WooCommerce-activated website
  • a shortcode, namely [bluem_machtigingsformulier] that allows (guest) users to perform an eMandate transaction request from any post or page (no WooCommerce plug-in necessary). The response is stored within the user profile metadata
  • a shortcode [bluem_identificatieformulier] that allows (guest) users to perform an iDIN eID request and store this information within the user profile metadata for further usage in third-party plugins or functions within your theme.
  • an extensive settings page that allows for enabling/disabling and configuration of specific services

Usage

Be sure to enable the desired modules from the Settings > Bluem page!

Ensure that the required information is filled in within the settings page. The Access Token for testing, the SenderID and the brandID have to be set properly. These details are given by your Bluem account manager.

You can change the environment from Testing to Live (production) as soon as you have a production token and you have tested your configuration extensively.

Mandates

eMandates is utilized as a Payment Gateway within WooCommerce. Enable it as a module in Settings > bluem and as the gateway in WooCommerce > Settings > Payments

From that moment onwards you can utilize the gateway during checkout.

Mandates shortcode

Activated if Mandates is activated as a module from the Settings > Bluem page.

Using this shortcode, it is possible to allow users to create a mandate separate from a WooCommerce context or usage. This can be used on a the account information page to encourage people to already arrange this before proceeding on your site.
Shortcode: [bluem_machtigingsformulier]

It is possible to programmatically block display and functionality on your site based on the presence of a mandate for a user. Please contact us if you are interested in developing this in your site.

Payments

ePayments is utilized as a Payment Gateway within WooCommerce. Enable it as a module in Settings > bluem and as the gateway in WooCommerce > Settings > Payments

From that moment onwards you can utilize the gateway during checkout.

Identity

Currently available as automatic blocking for WooCommerce’s checkout procedure and as shortcode (see next section).

If the user’s identity and/or age is not yet verified, a prompt will be shown as soon as the user tries to checkout. In this prompt, a link to directly initiate the identification procedure will be present. As soon as the identification procedure has been completed successfully, the prompt will disappear and the checkout procedure can be followed. Any items in the cart will still be intact.

In the settings interface you can enable a check for Identity verification and additional Age verification based on a specific given age. This can only be enabled or disabled shop-wide at this moment. Do note: It is possible to disable the automatic check and implement your own blocking check based on specific conditions. Please contact us for instructions on how to do this.

Identity Shortcode

Activated if iDIN is activated as a module from the Settings > Bluem page.

Using this shortcode, it is possible to allow users to identify separate from WooCommerce and a shop context. This can be used on a the account information page to encourage people to verify their identities.
Shortcode: [bluem_identificatieformulier]

It is possible to programmatically block display and functionality on your site based on the verification status. Please contact us if you are interested in developing this in your site.
