To import previously exported payment forms, go to Tools → Import in your WordPress admin and click Run Import from the WordPress section. If you’ve never used the WordPress Importer, you may need to click Install Now to activate it.

The importer will ask you to choose your previously exported .XML file. Once you’ve chosen the file, click the Upload file and import button.

After a short while, the imported will be finished and your imported payment forms will be available in the WP Simple Pay → Payment Forms admin.

After The Import

After importing your forms it is very important that you check all settings, etc., related to the form. It is especially critical to check the Subscription options if you are importing your forms to a site that is using a different Stripe account than the one they were exported from.
