Offering local payment methods is vital to a successful China-focused business, so we’ve made it easy to accept Credit Cards, WeChat Pay, and Alipay with the power of the Stripe API. WeChat Official Account integration is coming soon!

Credit cards support any currency and subscription frequency. WeChat Pay and Alipay support your Stripe account currency and display the CNY equivalent on checkout. Alipay offers recurring payments.

Are you selling to Chinese customers?

This is the perfect plugin for business owners or entrepreneurs who want to accept WeChat Pay or Alipay payments from Chinese customers.

Stripe.com supports WeChat Pay and Alipay payments, meaning you don’t have to set up a WeChat Official Account or register your business in China in order to accept WeChat Pay. Now, you can easily charge Chinese consumers using a payment method familiar to them and then have the funds deposited into your domestic bank account associated with Stripe. Simple and easy!

WeChat Pay, Alipay & Credit Card Payments Work Seamlessly

Desktop UX:

  • WeChat Pay generates a QR code for the end-user to scan using their mobile device
  • Alipay payments redirect the user to Alipay’s website, which displays a QR code for the same mobile payment process or to login to the user’s Alipay account, then automatically redirects the end-user back to your selected thank you page upon payment completion
  • Users are redirected to the Thank You page

Mobile UX:

  • WeChat users must generate the code on another device and scan it with their WeChat app. A notification pops up on the form notifying them to do this.
  • Alipay users are redirected to the corresponding payment website on their mobile browsers to complete payment.
  • Users are redirected to the Thank You page

Please note

  • You must have a verified Stripe.com account in a supported Stripe country to use this plugin.

  • Alipay and WeChat payments can only be accepted from Alipay and WeChat accounts that have been identity verified. Stripe cannot presently accept payments from unverified Alipay and WeChat accounts, but this may be subject to change.

  • Credit card and Alipay support recurring subscription payments and one-time payments.

  • WeChat Pay supports one-time payments from Chinese consumers.

  • Shortcodes allow you to customize each form to lock the payment amount or allow custom payment amounts, subscription frequency, currency, billing details, and more. Please read our docs for details.

  • The plugin currently supports one payment page template, but we’re working on improving this layout.

  • The China Payments Plugin settings will require you to Connect your Stripe account or use API keys from a verified Stripe.com account in order to function properly for TEST and/or LIVE payment modes.

  • If you have any problems or need installation support, we kindly request you please contact us for support BEFORE leaving negative feedback. We will do our best to resolve your issue or use your feedback to improve future releases.

Reviews

We provide German online lessons and teaching material for students worldwide. For a while we were searching for a way to make it easier for our Chinese student to book our lessons. After trying multiple plugins the China Payments Plugin was the best and easiest solution. It allows us to accept payments from China via Stripe, which is a very convenient solution. The software is easy to set up and mostly self-explanatory but whenever we needed help, support was on hand. And with at hand, I mean within minutes. I never had to wait more than 3 minutes for the support chat to answer and it was ALWAYS a competent person. No head-banging with first level, no back and forth emails with copy/paste messages. This was the main reason, why we decided for this plugin. Especially everything related to selling/payment, you need to have someone competent on your side and I can truly promise that this plugins has the best support I have encountered in some time. 10 stars!

I've been teaching English to Chinese students for years, and since COVID, my business has tripled. It has always been a struggle getting paid through WeChat Pay, but now I can do it super easily with China Payments Plugin! I had a bit of a challenge setting it up because of some Stripe account settings, but the Gaucho Plugins team responded immediately and had me set up within minutes.

I left a review somewhere and I can't find it to respond to it. I had a problem with the installation of this plugin. I received direct help and figured out what the problem was. Once made aware of the problem, the company was immediately responsive! I now recommend this team!
