So you’ve got your website set up to do rentals. AIM is connected to your AIMStorefront, and you can get through the rental checkout process, receive funds, and send email receipts – all automatically using AIM and AIMStorefront together. This all needs to be working before you can move forward with this next process.
If you allow anonymous rental checkouts, we advise you to turn off anonymous rentals and force your customers to create a website account before stepping through the rental process. If you are going to set your website to allow anonymous rentals, you'll need to be sure that you have your customers create storefront accounts and then you can link those to their account in AIM.
This feature assumes that all of the requirements above have been met. When your customers visit your website and want to make a rental payment, you'll want to direct them to their payment page by following these steps:
To allow access for your customers to view history and make rental payments online, we suggest you create links on the homepage to allow customers to get to these pages:
Now that you have your AIMStorefront set up properly to allow customers to navigate to those pages, you need to make sure your customers will have access to view and post payments from the website.
In AIM go to "Maintenance > Active-e > Active-e Setup" and click on "E-Commerce & API".
Navigate to the "3 API" tab and make sure you've checked "Automatically grant API access for all web customers"
When all of the above steps have been completed, you should be able to see your pages on your website:
If you would like to add text or images to these pages you can use pre-existing topics in your website. Each page listed below can have additional content by editing the topics in your website /aesys panel:
- aeC2BPaymentConfirmation – message that appears once a payment is made
- aeC2BPaymentHeader – this topic appears at the top of the page but below the header when it is published and contains content. We recommend adding this code to the html view of the topic in addition to your custom text:
<a href="aegethistorylist.aspx" class="btn btn-lg btn-primary">View Account History</a><br />
- aeC2BPaymentMailer - Once a customer makes a payment the message in this topic will be sent to them. We recommend adding this code to the html view of this topic:
Ref #(!C2B_PAYREF!)<br />
(!C2B_CUSCITY!), (!C2B_CUSSTATE!)<br />
- aeC2BHistoryListHeader – this topic appears at the top of the page but below the header when it is published and contains content. We recommend adding this code to the html view of the topic in addition to your custom text:
<a href="aepostpayment.aspx" class="btn btn-lg btn-primary">Make a Payment</a><br />
