Here's a question that comes up quite a bit:
I keep getting this message on the main page on the public website, "You are offering featured listings (or paid listings) but have payments turned off. Go to Manage Options - Payment to change the payment settings. Until you change this, the (Paid Listings) Upgrade to Featured option will be disabled."
How do I make this go away?
This message is telling you that you need to complete the Payment configuration to get Business Directory to accept payments for listings or to charge for Featured listings.
Here's what you need to do:
1) You need to have at least one payment gateway installed. You can use the default (Google Checkout) or you can purchase one of the others (2Checkout, PayPal) from here: http://businessdirectoryplugin.....m-modules/
2) You need to configure that payment gateway under Directory Admin->Manage Options, Payments tab. You should have the "Activate XXX" checked where XXX is the gateway you installed on step 1. You should enter all the required info for that gateway as well (e.g. For PayPal, you need the PayPal email).
3) You need to define at least one Fee plan under Directory Admin->Manage Fees. (Paid listings)
Once these are configured, you can enable Sticky/Featured Listings AND offer Paid Listings on your site. It's best to test with a sandbox account to ensure everything is working smoothly first.
And finally, once you are finished testing, you'll want to make sure your payment gateways are NOT in test mode. Go under Directory Admin->Manage Options, Payment tab and uncheck "Put payment gateways in test mode?" to go to production.
