How to Enable PayNow With Stripe and MemberPress?

PayNow is a real-time payment method developed by the Association of Banks in Singapore. It allows Singapore-based customers to make payments using an app from either their bank or participating non-bank financial institutions.

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

Receiving Payments With PayNow

PayNow is supported only through the built-in MemberPress integration with Stripe. Thus, before enabling PayNow, 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 PayNow as a payment method in your Stripe account, and then in MemberPress. You will find the PayNow option in your Stripe account by navigating to Settings > Payment Methods and scrolling down to the “Real-time payments” section.

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

Note: Your Stripe payment form will show PayNow as a payment method when you toggle on the PayNow option in MemberPress settings. Please keep in mind that PayNow 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 PayNow is enabled in your Stripe account before enabling it in MemberPress.

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

When your users submit the registration form, they will see a QR code. They need to scan this code using a participating app to complete the payment.

What’s Important to Know About Using PayNow?

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

Firstly, it’s important to mention that PayNow 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, PayNow doesn’t support delayed payments. Accordingly, PayNow as a payment option will not be available for memberships with free or paid trials.

Further, to use PayNow with MemberPress, please make sure that the currency in MemberPress settings is set to SGD

In addition, both the country selected for your Stripe account and the country set in your MemberPress settings must be Singapore

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