The Payments Block lets you add a payment button to any post or page. Using Stripe as the payment gateway, you can accept credit or debit cards.
The Payments Block can be used for selling physical and digital products online. It works for both one-time payments as well as monthly and yearly recurring payments for subscriptions or membership websites.
When you set the “Enable customers to pick their own amount” option, it allows the Payments Block to be used to accept donations. You can use the Donations Block with advanced features for donations.
The following video shows the process of adding a Payments block and setting up a payment button:
How to set up and manage payments
For full instructions on connecting your Stripe account, adding new buttons, viewing related fees, and managing your buttons, visit our WordPress.com support article on this topic.
The first time you add a Payments block, you will be prompted to connect your WordPress.com account to Stripe. Stripe is the payment processor used to take payments for the Payments feature.
|Click the Connect button to be taken to Stripe to connect your WordPress.com account.|
If you already have a Stripe account, you can log in at the top of the screen. Otherwise, fill out the form to create your new Stripe account.
Any money you earn will go into your Stripe account using the Payments block. From there, you can move it to the personal account of your choice. WordPress.com never has any access to the money you earn.
Stripe supported countries and currencies.
In order to start accepting payments using a Stripe account, you must be a citizen or own a company in one of the following countries. Your customers can pay using a credit card issued anywhere in the world.
