Quick Payments for WordPress

WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that provides you the ability to publish, edit, modify, organize, delete and maintain content all in one central space. It could either be a host of text, photographs, videos or audio files.

Integrating your WordPress site with Razorpay allows you to accept payments on your WordPress site via the Razorpay Payment Gateway. You can accept payments via debit card, credit card, netbanking (supports 3D Secure), UPI or through any of our supported wallets.

The plugin offers seamless integration, allowing the customer to pay on your website without being redirected. This allows the plugin to work across all browsers and ensures compatibility with the latest version of WordPress.

If you are using WooCommerce with your WordPress site, we have a WooCommerce plugin too!

The plugin also lets you:
