There are 4 payment gateways available in the core plugin that you can use to accept payment from your customers when using the WP eStore plugin.
- PayPal (Your customers can pay using a Credit Card or their PayPal account)
- Authorize.net (Your customers can pay using a Credit Card or Bank account)
- 2Checkout (Your customers can pay using a Credit Card or PayPal)
- Manual/Offline (Customers can pay using cash, cheque or bank transfer)
There are a lot of free and premium payment gateways for WP eStore that you can add via addon/extension plugins. Check the supported payment gateways page for a full list of supported gateways.
You can make all of them available so your customers can decide which one they want to use to pay you or you can selectively make one or two of them available. I personally use only PayPal to process all my payments for my products (www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/checkout).
If you want to use multiple payment gateways then select the “Use Multiple Payment Gateways” checkbox and then select which ones you want to use (eg. PayPal, Manual, 2Checkout).
If you want to use only one of them then leave the “Use Multiple Payment Gateways” checkbox unchecked and simply select the payment gateway you want to use.
Using 2Checkout Gateway in eStore
Using Authorize.net Gateway in eStore
In order to use the Authorize.net gateway in eStore you need to go to the Payment gateway settings and then the “Authorize.net Settings” section and fill in your merchant details.
If you want to use more than one gateway at the same time (example, PayPal and Authorize.net) then check the “Use Multiple Payment Gateways” field under the “General Payment Gateway” section of this payment gateway settings page.
Please note that PayPal is the most advanced payment gateway in the world. When you are using some of the other payment gateways (example: 2checkout, authorize.net), some eStore features may not be available simply because these gateways don’t offer those advanced controls and features.
Note: We provide technical support for our premium plugins via our customer only support forum
@Gundu, the following post will explain how to do this: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/forum/topic/how-to-customize-various-textmessages-displayed-by-the-plugin
How to change “Manual” Payment Option on cart payment option dropdown menu into something like : Bank Transfer ?
Hi Linda, You would just need to leave this empty if you want the payments to go until the customer cancels the subscription. The following post will tell you a little more about subscription payments:
Hi, I’ve created a product which needs to charge on a monthly basis. I’ve set Recurring Billing Amount. What should be set as Recurring Billing Count if this is gonna be charged on monthly basis? I’ve put in 0.
Do I need to do anything else? Will the customer be charged every month with me not doing anything else?
Hi Larry, PayPal Pro has not been added to the eStore at this time. We do not know when this will be added. But we are working on new payment gateways for the eStore.
Hi. I see you have a post from a few months ago saying the PayPal Payments Pro is not supported. Is this still the case? I’m considering WP Estore as a solution, but need to know if Pro is an option or not.
You have no idea how excited I am to see authorize.net added to estore. I spent two days trying to get ecommerce to work. I just kept thinking “I wish eStore would use authorize.net. I came back and did a search at 2am and viola! Less than two minutes later I had it installed. Now when my client makes the switch from Paypal to Authorize.net next week. I am ready.
Very thankful am I simply because I’ve identified this beneficial content. I’ll check this out and see if it will perform on my weblog as well.
Hi Eva, We are looking into adding PayPal Pro but at this time our plugins do not support PayPal Pro.
Does your plugin support PayPal Website Payments pro? My client doesn’t want to vistors to leave their website to go to paypal – does your plugin support this?
Hi, Not at this time. We do plan to add this but the time frame for this is unknown at this time as our to do list is always changing. I will talk to Amin about this.
Does Estore app support payments through Clickbank..?
Hi Mindi, The following forum post will explain what is happening with the IPN and how to fix this:
Let us know how it goes.
I just received the following notice from Paypal:
Please check your server that handles PayPal Instant Payment Notifications (IPN). IPNs sent to the following URL(s) are failing:
If you do not recognize this URL, you may be using a service provider that is using IPN on your behalf. Please contact your service provider with the above information. If this problem continues, IPNs may be disabled for your account.
Why would I be getting this issue.. I didn’t think I used IPN in the first place?
Thanks for your help.
Hi Mark, Please see the following post as it explain selling large files with the eStore
The eStore does not limit the file size. This will have to do with your hosting company.
Hi- I am setting up a site to download videos of 150MB +/- (cannot be broken down any more). Can your plugin handle this? Thanks!
Hi please see the following article as it will explain more about how the credit card option works : http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wordpress-ecommerce-knowledgebase-523 Please see the following section “Buyers can pay using a Credit Card or their PayPal account”
When I use go to checkout with Paypal, I do not see an option to use a credit card without setting up a Paypal account. Is this controlled by a setting somewhere?
You can see what I’m talking about with these screenshots:
Hi Jonathan, The email and name would come from PayPal. You can use email tags and have this information displayed in the email you receive from the plugin. You can find all the available email tags here:
You have a great plugin. Just a few questions:
I want to have people registered for training sessions. Can they add one to the cart and from there give in their email, name information?
Do you also support Ideal (Netherlands banking system)? That would be great.
Hi Ken, As of right now we do not have plans to add a payment gateway for Authorize.net. You can however add this to the wishlist if you would like. Here is a link: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wordpress-estore-wishlist-feature-suggestions-148
Are there plans or any way for estore to work with authorize.net?
