Currency, Locale, and Tax Settings

Stripe currently supports 14 languages, 35+ countries and 135+ currencies. WP Simple Pay lets you set the locale (language) for your payment forms as well as the preferred currency, currency format, and tax rate for your site’s region.

For example, some companies based in France may need the French locale, Euro currency, right-align the currency symbol position and use commas in place of decimals.

Currency Settings

In your WordPress admin, go to Simple Pay Pro → Settings → General → Currency. Here you can modify any of these settings for your entire site, except locale.

CurrencySet the currency for the payment form. Select or search for any supported currency.
Currency PositionSelect left or right side with an optional space separating the currency symbol and amount.
SeparatorsUse a comma when formatting decimal amounts and use a period to separate thousands. If enabled, amounts will be formatted as "1.234,56" instead of "1,234.56". Also, set the Language option (controls number formatting) in your Stripe dashboard under User Settings

Locale Settings

To change your locale settings in your WordPress admin, go to Simple Pay Pro → Settings → Stripe → Locale

Stripe Checkout LocaleSpecify "Auto-detect" to display Stripe Checkout in the user's preferred language, if available, or choose your desired locale. This setting applies to the Stripe Checkout form displays only.
Stripe Elements LocaleSpecify "Auto-detect" to display the Credit Card field placeholders and validation messages in the user's preferred language, if available, or choose your desired locale. This setting applies to the Embedded and Overlay form displays only.

Tax Rate/Fee Percentage Setting

WP Simple Pay has support for a global tax rate or fee that is applied to all forms. You can find this setting by visiting Simple Pay Pro → Settings → General → Taxes

If you need a bit more flexibility with taxes/fees, we do make a code snippet available that allows you to override the global tax percent or fee and apply a specific rate to a specific payment form. You can find the Custom tax Rate code snippet by clicking here.

Please note: Custom code snippets are provided as-is and there is no guarantee they will continue to work across multiple versions of WP Simple Pay.
