Answers Payment Support Add-On Frequently Asked Questions

What Payment Gateways does this plugin work with?

The Answers Payments add-on can use the Easy Digital Downloads or WooCommerce Payments platforms which come with the PayPal payment gateway included by default. This is free to use which makes initial setup easy.

Both EDD and WooCommerce are compatible with many other payment gateways such as Stripe, PayU and Sofort and many more.

Some of these payment gateways will require additional payment to install.

To learn more about payment gateways see this Help article.

Is this Payments add-on compatible with WooCommerce?

Yes. WooCommerce is supported by the CM Answers Payments add-on. The choice between Easy Digital Downloads and WooCommerce is made in the Configuration Settings.

To learn more about WooCommerce compatibility see this Help article.

Does this add-on require Payment for Asking Questions or for Answering them?

Both, or Either. It’s up to you what action you want to charge your site visitors for. You can also charge your site users for unlocking answers for questions posted on your site.

To learn more about this see this Help article.

Can I give users discount codes for answering a certain number of questions?

You can, but this functionality is not built into the add-on. You would need to deal with this manually. Easy Digital Downloads and WooCommerce both have Coupon Codes as part of their feature set.

If you are aiming to Gamify your website then the MicroPayments Plugin might be a good companion plugin for rewarding site visitors for fulfilling certain actions on your site.

Does this add-on integrate with the Experts Plugin?

Yes. This add-on is made to work with both CM Answers and Expert Add-on.

Does this come with a Payment Gateway included in the add-on?
