How to Enable Alipay With Stripe and MemberPress?

Alipay is an eWallet-based payment method, that allows customers to save their debit and credit card details and authorize payments through the platform. This payment method is especially popular in China as it is the leading payment platform in this country.

MemberPress integration with Stripe allows you to receive payments through Alipay. This document will show you how to set this up and provide more details on Alipay. 

Receiving Payments With Alipay

Alipay is supported only through the built-in MemberPress integration with Stripe. Thus, before enabling Alipay, please connect Stripe to MemberPress on your site, and test the connection to make sure it’s functioning well.

After your Stripe connection is properly set, please enable Alipay as a payment method in your Stripe account, and then in MemberPress. You will find the Alipay option in your Stripe account by navigating to Settings > Payment Methods and scrolling down to the “Wallets” section.

Please check more details on setting this up in the “How To Enable Payment Methods With Stripe and Memberpress” document.

Once Alipay is enabled, your membership registration forms will show this new payment option. The Alipay payment option will be available on both Stripe Checkout and Stripe Element forms

Note: Your Stripe payment form will show Alipay as a payment method when you toggle on the Alipay option in MemberPress settings. Please keep in mind that Alipay will be available on your forms, even if it's not enabled as a payment method in your Stripe account. To avoid any possible issues, please make sure that Alipay is enabled in your Stripe account before enabling it in MemberPress.

When your users submit the registration form, they will be redirected to Alipay to authorize the payment and returned to your site once the payment is confirmed.

What’s Important to Know About Using Alipay?

The Alipay payment option will show only if all conditions are met, as Alipay integration comes with several limitations imposed by Alipay or Stripe. 

Firstly, it’s important to mention that Alipay can only be used for non-recurring payments. Thus, this payment method will not be visible on the registration pages of your recurring memberships. Also, Alipay doesn’t support delayed payments. Accordingly, Alipay as a payment option will not be available for memberships with free or paid trials.

Further, Alipay supports a limited number of currencies. To use Alipay with MemberPress, please make sure that the currency in MemberPress settings is set to one of the following: AUD, CAD, CNY, EUR, GBP, HKD, JPY, MYR, NZD, SGD, or USD

In addition, if the country in your MemberPress settings is set to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, or Switzerland, you must set the currency to EUR to use Alipay.

You can also find more information about Alipay payments in Stripe documentation.
