Configure the Helio WooCommerce plugin

We can now configure the plugin to use the Pay Link and API keys we created earlier:
  • Select WooCommerce | Settings to get to the settings options
  • Click on the 'Payments' tab along the top options
  • The Helio plugin will be listed as 'Helio' - click the 'Finish set up' button
  • Tick the Enable 'Enable Helio Pay'
  • Enter the previously saved Pay Link ID into the 'Pay link request ID' field
  • Generate the API and secret key from the Helio dashboard -> Settings -> API and paste them into the fields. You're only required to do this for Mainnet. Configuring this for devnet is optional and for testing purposes only
