WooCommerce Braintree Payments Drop In UI

WooCommerce Braintree Payments Drop In UI.  Note that this is a sample only.  This will look different depending on your Braintree account settings for the Drop In UI.

Enable this option to set Braintree Payments up in Sandbox / Test Mode.  This allows you to run test transactions on your site to ensure the checkout process works as expected before switching to live payments.
Sandbox Public Key, Private Key, and Merchant ID
These are the API credentials that you will copy / paste from your Braintree test account into the corresponding fields for test purposes.  Make sure if you have Sandbox mode enabled that you are pulling these values form a Braintree test account!
Live Public Key, Private Key, and Merchant ID
These are the API credentials that you will copy / paste from your Braintree live account into the corresponding fields.
Enable Tokenized Payments
Enable this option to allow buyers to save their payment details to their account on your site.  This allows them to checkout more quickly in the future by selecting their saved payment method.

The payment details are stored in the Braintree system.  NOT on your website / database.  This allows you to provide this functionality without worrying about PCI Compliance.

Credit Card Statement Name
The value that you set here will be displayed on the buyer’s credit card statement.  This would typically be your company name.
Card Icon
Set an image you would like to use for the icon displayed next to the Braintree Payments option on the WooCommerce checkout page.
Debug Log
Check this box to enable logging for Braintree Payments API calls. These logs will be saved under /wp-content/uploads/wc-logs/.
Fraud Settings (Kount)
Braintree Payments provide sophisticated fraud management tools.  By default the Braintree account will include basic fraud tools like Address Verification and Card Security Code responses.  You may configure your account to use more advanced fraud tools provided by Kount Standard and Kount Custom.  Set the Fraud Tool drop down to match the functionality you have configured in your Braintree account to implement those tools on your WooCommerce checkout page.

Merchant Account IDs (MID)
If you are utilizing multiple Merchant IDs for different currencies in your Braintree account you may set those up here.
