At WP Simple Pay we are always fighting for your success so you can grow and compete with the big guys. In response to your feedback and backed by our commitment to empowering your success, we have expanded the payment options available to those of you using WP Simple Pay Lite

In the past, WP Simple Pay Lite users were limited to accepting payments via credit/debit cards and Appe Pay / Google Pay through Stripe checkout.

Now, by offering multiple payment options, you have the power to attract a wider customer base and cater to diverse preferences effortlessly. Your customers can complete transactions using their preferred payment method, whether it’s through a digital wallet, bank redirect, or traditional card payment. 

This versatility eliminates any barriers and maximizes convenience, leading to higher conversion rates and customer satisfaction. Some Stripe Checkout users have seen conversions increase by as much as 45% after enabling additional payment methods relevant to their customer’s location.

Enable Local Payment Methods for Your Users

With WP Simple Pay Lite, accepting additional payment methods such as Alipay has never been easier. All you need to do to add more payment methods to your existing payment form is head over to the Payment tab. Once you’re there, go to the Payment Methods section, check the box next to the payment method you want to add, and save your changes.
