WordPay includes a number of options for you to configure.

General Settings

Settings that apply to your entire site.

  • Load CSS – Enable this option to automatically load a stylesheet with basic CSS for WordPay elements. It’s recommended to use these styles along with your own CSS as needed.
  • Register Success Page – Select the page where you wish to redirect your newly registered members. This will apply to registration forms generated using the [wpay-register] shortcode.
  • Modules – Select which modules to load, and uncheck the ones that you don’t need. This can save memory and make your site load slightly faster.

Payment Settings

Select your currency and configure payment gateways.

  • Currency – Select your currency. Please note that some payment gateways can have currency restrictions.
  • Currency Position – Select whether the currency symbol should appear before the price or after the price.
  • Test Mode – By checking this option you will be able to use WordPay with test accounts from your payment processors.
  • Active Payment Gateways – Select which payment gateways to use. If more than one option is selected, members will be able to choose one. Please note that PayPal Standard and PayPal Express Checkout cannot both be active at the same time.
  • Default Payment Gateway – This payment gateway will become the default option when members are at checkout.
  • Renewal – Select renewal type. You can either allow the customer to opt in or force automatic renewal.

Some payment gateways require additional settings.

You can enter your PayPal Email Address if you’re using any of the PayPal gateways, and API Credentials for PayPal Express Checkout and PayPal Payments Pro.

If you’re using Stripe, you will need to enter your Live Secret Key and Live Publishable Key to start collecting payments.

Content Restriction

Choose how to restrict content, and what each user sees.

  • Type of Restriction – If you select “Messages” the post’s content will be protected by being replaced with a custom message.
  • Redirect URL – If you select “Redirect” the post’s content will be protected by redirecting the user to the URL you specify. The redirect happens only when accessing a single post. On archive pages the restriction message will be displayed, instead of the content.
  • Messages for logged-out users – Enter a message here so that it will be displayed to visitors.
  • Messages for logged-in non-member users – This message will be displayed to users of your site who don’t have membership access to that particular content.
  • Restricted Posts Preview – Show a portion of the restricted post to logged-out users or users that are not subscribed to a plan.


Configure email settings, and edit the content of emails that are sent to members at each timing.

  • From Name – Enter the name that you’d like to use when sending emails to members.
  • From Email – Emails to members will be sent from this address.
  • Register Email – Enter the Subject and Content to send to newly registered members.
  • Activate Subscription Email – Enter the Subject and Content to send when they’ve activated their subscription.
  • Cancel Subscription Email – Enter the Subject and Content to send when a member cancels their subscription.
  • Expired Subscription Email – Enter the Subject and Content to send to members when their plan has expired.

You can use any of the Available Tags from the sidebar to add dynamic text to your emails.
