2) On the ‘Welcome to BrightPay Setup Wizard’, click ‘Next’ to continue.

3) Read the license agreement carefully and if happy to accept the terms tick the box provided.  Then click ‘Next’.

4) On the next screen, you will be asked where you would like to install the software. The recommended default location for the installation will be displayed in the box. To install to this folder, simply click ‘Next’. Alternatively, if you wish to install the software to a different location of your choice, click the ‘Change’ button and browse to your destination folder. 

Please note: the software is designed to be installed and run from the local C drive of each user’s PC.

The BrightPay icon should now be present on your Desktop in order to access the software.

9) In the event that an icon hasn’t been created on your Desktop, one can be created by browsing to your BrightPay installation folder and right clicking on the ‘BrightPay.exe’ file that can be found here. Selecting the option ‘Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)' will now place the BrightPay icon on the Desktop for you.
