Adding a Payment Page to WordPress: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you looking for a way to accept credit card payments on your WordPress website without a shopping cart? Look no further! This guide will walk you through the process of setting up a payment page on WordPress using the Stripe Payments add-on. To get started, log in to your WordPress website and select Plugins from the menu on the left of your WordPress dashboard. Then, type 'payments at ray' in the search box on the top right and select Enable in the Stripe Payments add-on. Once you have activated the plugin, you will be taken to a quick setup process to connect your payment gateway.

This allows your site to get test payments in a sandbox to ensure that everything works properly and is managed accordingly. Next, you need to create a payment form to place on your website as a gateway for making transactions. To add the payment form to your site, you must insert the payment form created on a particular page that you like. You don't need an account to do so either, just follow the PayPal instructions and you'll receive a code snippet that you can add to a page or publication. In addition, it will mark the payment method as a backup for current and future subscriptions, which will be used if the payment method assigned for a subscription fails during renewal. When you select a payment block to be reusable, make sure you select the entire block that groups all the functions you want. The free version of the payment page charges a small 2% fee on Stripe payments and not on PayPal payments.

However, if you are wary of the code, the PayPal Buy Now button is a solid alternative that will also save you time if you need to create a large number of payment buttons. To start accepting payments with a Stripe account, you must be a citizen or a business owner in one of the following countries. Currently, HTTP requests are only supported by Stripe payment methods, as PayPal's verification flow is more complex. We have included the ability to send HTTP requests that include all fields in the form (except confidential payment details), as well as the query string parameters that are sent on the page. That's it! You now know how to add a payment page to WordPress without needing an external shopping cart. With this guide, you can easily accept credit card payments on your WordPress website.
