Configuring Brightpearl Payments
The initial steps for configuring Brightpearl Payments are the same for all payment providers. The settings for each provider will then be different depending on what the providers support. The configuration for each different provider is given on a dedicated page for each provider in our help articles.
How to configure Brightpearl Payments
- In Brightpearl, go to Settings > Company > Payment methods.

- Give the payment method a name and a code.
- Select This payment method is active option.
