Customers pay on the checkout page. When Simplify Commerce is selected the credit card form will be displayed:

Checkout form

This form tokenises the input details using Simplify commerce’s javascript library – this ensures CC details are not posted to your server which makes the process more secure.

Ensure you have input the correct keys and that if you are in live mode, you have entered live keys (not test keys).

Does this extension support automatic subscriptions?

At present, no. But it will work with subscriptions in manual mode.

Terms and Conditions

Simplify may ask that the website contains a Terms and Conditions page before approving your account. If you need help setting this up, please refer to the Checkout Page section on the Configuring WooCommerce Settings documentation.
