We recommend you run PayPal AND Stripe or PayPal AND Square together for best results an the most conversions. Consumers are very conscious about how they want to pay and offering several methods will convert more users into purchasers!
Payment gateways are broken down into 3 main categories. Bill Later, Third Party, and Live Payment Gateways below.
Also known as Direct Deposit or Bill Later method, this system can be enabled/disabled along with a custom message. The way it works is it simply bypasses the payment processing step. The orders are all placed into an ‘Order Pending’ status so that no downloads or goods would be shipped or given away until the site owner or administrator changes the order status to ‘Order Approved’. Once you collect payment, however that may be, is when the order status is changed.
This is useful for Purchase Orders, Direct Deposits, Checks, or other methods where the order is taken, but payment is left to the site owner or administrator.
EasyCart referees to payments in which the customer leaves your website to make a payment as ‘Third Party Payments’. PayPal is the most prevalent method, but we have close to a dozen different third party payment processors from around the globe. Simply enter your credentials and settings for the processor type you would like to enable.
**Note: If you plan to sell downloadable goods, it is easier for customers if you use a live processor, as transactions are processed instantly and the results get the user to their downloads quicker and smoother than if they leave your site, pay, then come back.
WP EasyCart refers to payments that are made without the customer ever leaving your website as ‘Live Payments’. Square, Authorize.net, Stripe, FirstData are popular examples, but choose from over two dozen live payment integrations for international and domestic support. Simply enter your credentials and settings for the processor type you would like to enable.
Stripe for Subscriptions – A special consideration is made to subscriptions and memberships as they are much more complicated systems to work with. WP EasyCart is integrated heavily with stripe.com as a live payment processor and subscription system. If you plan to use subscription based products, you should sign-up for stripe.com. Note: Free Edition users cannot use subscriptions with Stripe and WP EasyCart, you must upgrade to access this feature.
Square – Square is a popular payment gateway many small businesses already have, and you can enable them for a payment provider here with a single click. Note that our integration does not do a 2 way syncing process with products and inventory on Square at this time.
Other Payment Processors – WP EasyCart also offers two dozen other live payment processors. Simply select your payment gateway of choice from box and enter the credentials for that gateway.
