Step 2: Connect WordPress to Stripe
To connect your WordPress site to Stripe, click Connect with Stripe.
Next up, enter the email address you use for your Stripe account and connect it with your site. If you don’t have a Stripe account, you can easily create one by entering your email address and completing registration.
Upon completing this process, you’ll be shown a success page that says Setup Complete. Next, to create a payment form, click on the Create a Payment Form button.
Step 3: Customize Stripe Payment Confirmation
With WP Simple Pay, you can either customize the payment confirmation globally, which will be applied to all forms by default. Or you can choose the payment confirmation page individually for each payment form that you create.
Let’s take a look at how to change the default confirmation page first.
Step 3. a) Change the Default Confirmation Page
To change the default confirmation page, navigate to WP Simple Pay » Settings and then click on Payment Confirmations. On this page, you can see 3 options as follows:
- Payment Success Page
- Payment Failure Page
- Payment Cancelled Page
As soon as the WP Simple Pay plugin is installed and activated, the plugin automatically creates 2 pages on your site: Payment Confirmation and Payment Failed. These 2 pages are also automatically configured to show when a payment is succeeded or failed/cancelled.
To change the success page, feel free to choose from the existing pages from their respective dropdown menu. On your confirmation page, you can dynamically display payment details, like total amount, recurring amount, next invoice date, and more.
WP Simple Pay lets you customize one-time payment, subscription, and subscription with trial separately. We’ll take a look at how to customize the payment information on the confirmation page in Step 4.
Step 3. b) Choose a Separate Confirmation Page for a Form
WP Simple Pay lets you use a separate confirmation page for each form if needed. To choose a different confirmation page for a specific payment form, select the payment form that you want to update by going to WP Simple Pay » Payment Forms and then click on the payment form from the list.
Next, on the General settings page, you can configure the Payment Success Page. By default, Global Setting is chosen. Choose Specific Page to select a separate confirmation page for your form.
Then, click Publish or Update to update your form.
Step 4: Customize the Payment Details Info
WP Simple Pay makes it easy to customize the auto-populated payment info on your confirmation page. Simply navigate to WP Simple Pay » Settings and then click on Payment Confirmations. The plugin lets you customize one-time payment, subscription, and subscription with trial separately.
For example, if you click on the One Time Payment tab, you’ll see an editor where you can customize the payment details with the available smart tags.
