Product Directory Payments Plugin Frequently Asked Questions

What payment methods does this add-on work with?

The payments add-on for Product Directory works with either the Easy Digital Downloads or the WooCommerce payment platforms. By default these use Paypal which can also offer guest checkout so your users won’t need to log into a PayPal account to pay for a Product listing.

However if you wish to use a different payment gateway to PayPal there are plenty of other options offered by both EDD and WooCommerce, some are free others are paid.

Can coupon codes be created to discount paying for Product Listings?

Yes. Easy Digital Downloads and WooCommerce both support the creation of coupon codes.

How do I set the price of paying for a Product Listing?

You first need to create a product using Easy Digital Downloads or WooCommerce (whichever you have chosen). Then this product is associated with paying for listings within the payments tab of the Product Directory Settings.

Is it possible to show a limited version of Product Listings until site visitors have paid for the full access?

Can I use this to charge my site users for renewal of a product listing with recurring payments?

Yes you can. The Product Directory Payments add-on comes with a recurring payments option in the plugin settings. Decide how often renewal is required, how much a renewal costs and how far in advance renewal requests are automatically sent.

Renewal reminder emails can be customized and can include placeholder shortcodes to inject more directly relevant content into the email.

I want to install the Product Directory Community add-on to allow users to upload products to the listing, can this allow me to charge them for this?

Yes, they work together. If you have the Community Add-on you can charge for allowing site visitors for both Adding new products to the directory and also for Claiming existing products on the directory.

To learn more about this feature see this Help article.

What can I charge my site visitors / potential product listing owners for?

You can charge for creating a new listing or claiming existing when the Product Directory Community add-on is installed.

If you haven’t got the Community add-on installed you can set up a free version of the listing and a paid version. It is up to you what content to show to customers before they pay to see the paid version and how much they must pay to view it, and for how long.
