PayPal Pro Payment Terminal WordPress


PayPal PRO Payment Terminal WordPress allows you to have a quick & easy credit card payment terminal for your clients processed by PayPal PRO on your WordPress site. Installation and configuration of the script takes less than 5 minutes (however you do need to have SSL and PayPal PRO account).


There are several options to pay.

– customers can select service from a list

– customers can input price themselves

– customers can be directed to pay for particular service

– customers can be directed to payment page with a pre-set amount


You need to generate form or button (with many different options/settings available to select from) and then you can place it anywhere on your WordPress site, in page or in post. We’ve also included a widget area, which accepts button code too, so you can use widget to place same button.

The blue button at the end of the screen will take you to all transactions.


Services are quick way of storing some pre-defined charge templates for your button generator. When you will be creating your buttons in next section – you will see that you can select services which you already created in this section.

 Since version 1.2 (released on March 22, 2016) – you can now easily enable reCaptcha on your payment form. All you need to do is go to Settings area and click on “Enable reCaptcha” checkbox – you will then be presented with option to enter reCaptcha Site Key and reCaptcha Secret Key.

2016-03-21_1629 After that step is done – you will be presented with the keys. You need to copy these 2 keys to the appropriate input fields in settings. Make sure there is no extra spaces behind the copied keys! 2016-03-21_1629_001


At the moment, there is no automatic plugin update from within wordpress administration for this product.

To update to the latest version (when you receive a notification from codecanyon for example)

– you just need to download the file from codecanyon downloads area, then reupload all the files through FTP (please use FTP client, something like FileZilla will work just fine * Filezilla- )

If you will deactivate/delete the plugin through wp admin area and then upload new one also through wp admin area – that will work as well, however, please note that all settings and widgets will be dropped, and you will need to edit those again. Buttons and Services will stay intact though.
