    Configuring the WPM Education E-Payment System


    The WPM Education E-Payment System allows Alma users to pay fines and fees using My Account in Primo. Once the request is initiated in Primo and processed in the payment system and Alma, both Alma and the WPM Education E-Payment System send payment receipt emails to the user.

    The WPM Education online payment system is available to UK customers only.

    The WPM Education E-Payment System must first be configured in Alma to enable online payments. Refer to the appropriate section to configure the Pay Fine link:

    The following role is needed to configure the WPM Education E-Payment System:

    3. Enter the required fields on this page. Much of this information is specific to your institution and must be provided by the online payment system provider. The Redirect URL field allows the online payment system to redirect the patron to the specified URL after the transaction has completed.

    4. Select Save.

    • Alma always sends payoption="L" in the XML. This is not configurable.
    • Single line payment in WPM is not supported in Alma. Alma currently sends only one payment element with the total amount the user owes.
    • There is no need for any IP ranges to be open for a post from WPM back to Alma. There are no limitations for http to Alma.
    • This integration option is relevant only for UK customers as WPM only provides services in the UK.
    • For Primo VE, it is possible to integrate also other payment systems, see Configuring the Pay Fine Link for Primo VE.
