WooCommerce eCurring gateway


eCurring is specialised in the processing of subscription payments with the use of SEPA Direct Debit and credit card. Periodic collection of payments, also referred to as recurring payments, has grown exponentially the last few years. However it is often a challenge for companies, to build this process in-house, resulting in long development cycles and high costs.

With eCurring you can easily manage customers and subscriptions, collect funds periodically and automate follow-ups in a single solution. No technical knowledge is required to use eCurring. Start managing and collecting your subscriptions through eCurring today.

  • VISA

  • MasterCard
  • American Express
  • V Pay

Please go to the signup page to create a new eCurring account and start receiving payments in a couple of minutes. Contact support@ecurring.com if you have any questions or comments about this plugin.

I can’t install the plugin, the plugin is displayed incorrectly

Please temporarily enable the WordPress Debug Mode. Edit your wp-config.php and set the constants WP_DEBUG and WP_DEBUG_LOG to true and try
it again. When the plugin triggers an error, WordPress will log the error to the log file /wp-content/debug.log. Please check this file for errors. When done, don’t forget to turn off
the WordPress debug mode by setting the two constants WP_DEBUG and WP_DEBUG_LOG back to false.

I get a white screen when opening …

Most of the time a white screen means a PHP error. Because PHP won’t show error messages on default for security reasons, the page is white. Please turn on the WordPress Debug Mode to turn on PHP error messages (see previous answer).

The eCurring payment gateway isn’t displayed in my checkout

  • Please go to WooCommerce > Settings > Checkout in your WordPress admin and scroll down to the eCurring settings section.
  • Check which payment gateways are disabled.
  • Go to the specific payment gateway settings page to find out why the payment gateway is disabled.

The order status is not getting updated after successfully completing the payment

  • Please check the eCurring log file located in /wp-content/uploads/wc-logs/ or /wp-content/plugin/woocommerce/logs for debug info. Please search for the correct order number and check if eCurring has called the shop Webhook to report the payment status.
  • Do you have maintenance mode enabled? Please make sure to whitelist the ‘wc-api’ endpoint otherwise eCurring can’t report the payment status to your website.
  • Please check your eCurring dashboard to check if there are failed webhook reports. eCurring tried to report the payment status to your website but something went wrong.
  • Contact support@ecurring.com with the order number. We can investigate the specific payment and check whether eCurring successfully reported the payment state to your webshop.

Payment gateways and mails aren’t always translated

This plugin uses translate.wordpress.org for translations. WordPress will automatically add those translations to your website if they hit 100% completion at least once. If you are not seeing the eCurring plugin as translated on your website, the plugin is probably not translated (completely) into your language (you can view the status on the above URL).

You can either download and use the incomplete translations or help us get the translation to 100% by translating it.

To download translations manually:
1. Go to translate.wordpress.org
2. Click on the percentage in the “Stable” column for your language.
3. Scroll down to “Export”. 
4. Choose “All current” and “MO – Machine Object” 
5. Upload this file to plugins/languages/woo-ecurring/.
6. Repeat this for all your translations.

If you want to help translate the plugin, read the instructions in the Translate strings instructions.

Can I add payment fees to payment methods?

Yes, you can with a separate plugin. At the moment we have tested and can recommend Payment Gateway Based Fees and Discounts for WooCommerce. Other plugins might also work.

Can I set up payment methods to show based on customers country?

Yes, you can with a separate plugin. At the moment we have tested and can recommend WooCommerce – Country Based Payments. Other plugins might also work.

Why do orders with payment method BankTransfer and Direct Debit get the status ‘on-hold’?

These payment methods take longer than a few hours to complete. The order status is set to ‘on-hold’ to prevent the WooCommerce setting ‘Hold stock (minutes)’ (https://docs.woothemes.com/document/configuring-woocommerce-settings/#inventory-options) will
cancel the order. The order stock is also reduced to reserve stock for these orders. The stock is restored if the payment fails or is cancelled. You can change the initial order status for these payment methods on their setting page.

I have a different question about this plugin

Please contact support@ecurring.com with your eCurring details ID, please describe your problem as detailed as possible. Include screenshots where appropriate.
Where possible, also include the eCurring log file. You can find the eCurring log files in /wp-content/uploads/wc-logs/ or /wp-content/plugin/woocommerce/logs.
