WordPress MicroPayments (CMMP) - EDD (Easy Digital Downloads) - Payment Gateway

Setting Up Gateway

Back to User Guides

The WordPress MicroPayments allows you to let users use their points as payment currency in the Easy Digital Downloads shop you're running.


To use the Easy Digital Downloads Payment Gateway, you need to do the following:

  • Enable it in the Micropayments settings
  • Setup the Gateway in the Easy Digital Downloads

Below: To enable the Easy Digital Downloads payment gateway, you need to check the option called "Use Easy Digital Downloads for Checkout" in the Settings -> General

In the Settings you can set:

  • Gateway Admin Name - name under which the Gateway will be displayed in the Admin Dashboard screens
  • Gateway Checkout Name - name under which the Gateway will be displayed in the Checkout
  • Checkout Wallet Label - label for the field where users will need to put their Wallet ID
  • Currency to Points Ratio - the ratio used to calculate the price of the items from the regular prices (eg in USD) to the price in points. Which allows you to set the value of the points. 

    Generally the bigger the ratio, the less valuable the points are.

Using the gateway

After setting up you can use the gateway as any other payment gateway.

On the checkout after selecting the Gateway user will have to just fill the Wallet ID (which is pre-filled if the user is logged in and the Wallets are assigned to users). Below there's an information on how much points would be required to purchase and how many points are left in the given wallet.

Below: Example Checkout with the MicroPayments plugin gateway selected.
