How to Customize a Payment Form’s Payment Options

Payment Mode

By default, when a payment is made, the transaction is processed in the currently set global “Test Mode” setting found in WP Simple Pay → Settings → Stripe → Account.

This setting can be overridden for each payment form. Adjust the form’s Payment Mode to process transactions in a mode other than the global setting if you need to perform tests, gradually roll out additional forms, or similar.

Price Options

WP Simple Pay allows you to add a Price and select its various options from the Payment tab. A Payment Form can have a single price option, or many price options.

If there is only one price option, the respective settings will automatically be applied to the payment and no price selector will be shown.

One Time Price options shown below:

LabelAdd an optional custom label for this Price.
AmountSelect a currency and an amount for this Price.
Optional subscriptionAllow price to be optionally purchased as a subscription
Optional custom amountAllow the amount to be determined by the user.

See demos of all options above on our demos page.

Subscription Price options shown below:

LabelAdd an optional custom label for this Price.
AmountSelect a currency and an amount for this Price.
Optional custom amountAllow the amount to be determined by the user.

NOTE: For Invoice Limit, the number entered should include the initial payment. See demos of all options above on our demos page.
