SP LMS Now Supports Stripe & Razorpay Payment Gateway
This update brings users the convenience of using Stripe and Razorpay payment gateway. With the new payment gateways, users get more flexibility with online payment methods. Along with faster payment processing, multiple payment options will allow you to take your business to the global market.
From the Payment Settings, you can now see the option to choose Stripe as your payment method. Select it and you’ll get a Stripe API Key column to insert your API key. You’ll find your API Key in the Developers Dashboard of your Stripe account.
To set up Razorpay, go to your Payment Settings and choose the Razorpay option. Now you should be able to see the columns to insert your Razorpay Key ID and Razorpay Key Secret. Learn how to generate API Keys for your Razorpay account HERE.
Use Google reCAPTCHA on Teacher Contact Form
To use Google reCAPTCHA with SP LMS, you need to first register on Google reCAPTCHA. To do that, log in to your Google account and go to the Google reCaptcha page. Select reCAPTCHA v2 and enter the necessary information like Label, the URL where you’ll be using reCAPTCHA, Owners, and more to register. Once you are done, you will be presented with a Site Key and Secret Key.
Now, head over to your Joomla backend dashboard -> Systems -> Plugins. Search and enable the CAPTCHA -reCAPTCHA plugin. Use the Site Key and Secret Key we generated earlier to set the plugin up.
From the SP LMS dashboard, choose Options -> Basic and scroll down to find the Show Teacher Contact option. If you enable this, you will see the reCaptcha Teacher Contact option. Simply enable this and you’re good to go.
Notable Improvements and Fixes
Previously when we selected the Direct Payment method, the total order price would show the regular price and not the discounted price. In this update, we’ve fixed the issue and also added a new column “Order Price” on the Orders page. Now, the order table shows the regular and discounted prices correctly.
SP LMS now lets you add a course Subcategory option for the Course Catagories. From your Joomla dashboard simply choose Components > SP LMS > Dashboard > Options > Basic. Here, you should find the Subcategory option which you can enable or disable according to your preference.
