How to Configure the Payment Confirmation Display

To configure what’s displayed to your customers or donors after a successful payment, go to WP Simple Pay → Settings → Payment Confirmation  → One-Time Payment. Here you can change what’s displayed for a successful One-Time Payment.

If you have the Plus license or higher, you’ll see two more tabs next to One-Time Payment: Subscription and Subscription with Trial. Here, you can customize an alternate message for each of these, as they all describe different types of payments.

Note that you’re customizing the payment confirmation page, not the receipts sent by email. View how to configure email receipts in Stripe.

Make sure the [simpay_payment_receipt] shortcode resides on the Payment Success Page you designate if modified or changed (it should exist by default).
