Using on WordPress 5.9 WooCommerce 6.2 PHP 7.4 Uses short code. Shortcode allows it to be linked to custom button/inserted on page. Keeps user on the site to page. Worked perfectly. Verified in Sandbox. Plugin has two admin menus: 1. Donation Settings where you add your credentials and the Thank You message 2. Donation where you can see the list of donors. Prefer to the Simple Checkout alternative.

I’ve been looking for a decent plugin (free) which is able to process payments in a simple way. I tried writing my own code, and even the SDK on their website is way more complicated than it needs to be. This plugin is great! It works, it’s efficient, and it records all the transactions. I just installed this on my 5.0.3 version of Wordpress (latest) and it works just fine. This isn’t the right plugin for everyone, since there is a bit of coding involved if you want to customize it, but it’s amazing how simple this is and how easy we can configure it. THANKS A LOT for providing me with a solution I needed! (Seriously, I spent MONTHS working on this!) Brendan THANKS AGAIN!
