Reviews

simple setup

Simple and easy-ish. Plugin configuration is super straight forward. However, as it didn't work in a flash, did some troubleshooting. The plugin description is slightly misleading by stating "This plugin creates the /.well-known/brave-payments-verification.txt file". Strictly speaking it does not create this file physically. Instead it creates a modrewrite on WP level. And the verification process ain't instant (as it is with google meta tags for example); patience is a virtue. After 8hrs of waiting my site was verified. 4-star rating due to plugin description.

Didn’t work

failed to create the verification file. Was easier to just upload the file manually via FTP than work out why the plugin was not working...
