General - WP Simple Pay Documentation


On the Payment Form General tab, you can adjust general behavior of the Payment Form.


A title to describe the payment form. Output above the Payment Form, or on Stripe Checkout


Optional. Additional description of the Payment Form. Output above the Payment Form, or on Stripe Checkout.

Form Type

  • Embedded will display all payment form fields on the page itself. All fields can be rearranged and styled as needed.
  • Overlay will display all payment form fields in an overlay launched by a button on the page. Like the embedded option, all fields can be rearranged and styled as needed.
  • Stripe Checkout will display some fields on the page and others in the Stripe Checkout form. Stripe Checkout is served by Stripe’s servers and allows partial field customization. See Stripe Checkout Display Options to customize this further.

Both the Embedded and Overlay form display types utilize Stripe Elements to provide real-time validation and securely collect payment details.

Payment Success Page

By default, when a payment is successful your customers or donors will be directed to the payment success page selected in the global settings (see Setting Payment Success and Failure Pages). This setting can be overridden for each payment form. Just set the Specific Page if it’s a page located on your WordPress site, or Redirect URL if it’s an external page you want to redirect to. The best way to see these form display options in action is to check out our demo site.
