WP Simple Pay is also a Stripe verified partner. The Stripe partner program recognizes applications which meet their strict quality requirements and allows us to provide even better services to our customers.
Here are a few examples of the WP Simple Pay Pro showing different ways you can set up Stripe payment forms. To see how they would appear and function on your site, try out some demos.
Payment form drag & drop builder
Drag and drop to add a custom amount entry, a coupon code field, various custom field types, subscription plan selection, a total amount label and more.
All data entered into these custom fields are stored as “metadata” with each Stripe payment record within your Stripe dashboard, so everything is viewable alongside all payment or subscription plan data.
3 form display types
Select from the embedded, overlay, or Stripe Checkout payment form display types.
Compare them by trying a few of our demos.
Use Stripe Checkout payment pages
If you need only minimal payment form customizations and don’t need an overlay payment form, you can utilize Stripe’s fully-hosted checkout pages for payment. As of September 13, 2019, the newer Stripe Checkout has replaced the “legacy” Stripe Checkout overlay.
You can set a few options when using Stripe Checkout, but when this option is selected, Stripe dictates what can and cannot be configured on the checkout page as it is served up by Stripe’s servers.
We paid developers for several hours to do what WP Simple Pay Pro accomplished in minutes. A no-brainer investment for us.
Justin McGill, Founder of LeadFuze
Allow custom amount payments
Set a one-time amount or let your site visitors pay what they want. Optionally specify minimum and default amounts.
Add and customize subscription options
Connect a payment button to an individual Stripe plan or let your site visitors pick a plan to subscribe to. Add a custom amount option, charge a setup fee or tie into free trials.
Try a few of these subscription demos:
- Set single plan, user selects plan and adding custom fields
- Allow customer or donor to enter a recurring custom amount
- Add an initial setup fee or allow a free trial period
You can also set up installment plans to end subscriptions after a specific number of charges.
Offer discounts with coupon codes
Percent or amount-off coupon codes added in your Stripe dashboard can be used in your payment forms.
Use with subscriptions or one-time payments, and optionally add a total amount label that updates real-time.
I’ve set up payment processing on over a dozen sites and it usually takes forever just to get up and running. Using WP Simple Pay Pro I was accepting Stripe payments in no time. It’s one of the best decisions I made while launching my new product.
Mike Taber, Founder of Bluetick
Add Apple Pay and Google Pay buttons
Give your site visitors the option to pay using Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Microsoft Pay with a single button in your custom embedded or overlay forms.
Anyone with a browser and device combination that allows one of these options will see the new payment button.
ACH debit and iDEAL payments
Give your customers the option to pay directly from their bank accounts with ACH debit payments. ACH debits offer you lower transaction fees than cards.
Other payment methods such as iDEAL are also supported with more coming soon!
Customized payment confirmation details
Easily customize the credit card payment confirmation details your customers see within the post editor using placeholder tags.
Complete any purchase on our demo site to see it in action.
Locale and currency settings
Stripe currently supports 27 languages, 39 countries, and 135+ currencies. WP Simple Pay lets you set the locale (language) for your payment forms as well as the preferred currency and date formats for your site’s region.
The WP Simple Pay team has been outstanding. From technical support to feature requests to frequent product updates – the value provided has saved us thousands over building a Stripe integration ourselves.
Jon MacDonald, Founder of The Good
