If you only want to test the gateway, you can create a Test account (Sandbox account)

Go to Braintree. If you have an account with Braintree, click on Log In else create an account by clicking on Sign Up



Enter your credentials to Log In. You can also login with your PayPal account



Click on cogwheel icon



From the dropdown menu, select API



Click on View to view the API keys. If you want to generate new keys, click on Generate New API Key



Here is your Braintree Public Key, Private Key and Merchant ID. Copy all of the keys



C. Activate Braintree as your payment method

Go to ShopBase store admin >> Settings >> Payment Providers >> Add another account and click to choose Braintree

Enter your merchant info from step B above >> Activate.

Turn on Test mode then use the credentials from Test account if you just want to test the store.

That's all and you are now ready to receive customers' purchases via Braintree.

Note: To keep your account safe, ShopBase will not send any information related to your store, including your store name, store domain, product name, etc. to payment gateways to help prevent your account from being restricted.

D. Deactivate your Braintree account

After connecting your Braintree account to the store, you can deactivate anytime and still be able to re-activate it later with the same or different credentials.
