1. I have created a Payment Button on the Razorpay Dashboard. When I try to embed this code on my www.wordpress.com website, I am facing errors. How do I resolve this?

You cannot directly use the Payment Button code generated from the Razorpay Dashboard if you are using www.wordpress.com. You must upgrade to the WordPress paid plan and use the Razorpay Payment Button plugin.

2. I am using Thrive Editor to add the button code for Razorpay. What should I be aware of, and how should I add payment buttons?

If you are using Thrive Editor to add the button code for Razorpay, it is essential to note that Thrive Editor does not support the direct inclusion of scripts in HTML pages or posts. It automatically places a code tag on top of the script and adds a <code class="tve_js_placeholder"> above the payment button script. Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this behaviour. We recommend using the WordPress default editor, Gutenberg, or any other compatible editor to add payment buttons effectively. These editors allow you to add payment button scripts without the interference caused by Thrive Editor's script handling. This will ensure a smooth integration of Razorpay payment buttons into your website.

3. I am getting following error message Razorpay error: Payment button fetch failed with the following message: The API key provided by you has expired and cannot be used. Please use the correct key and secret. How do I resolve this?

This error indicates that your API Key and Secret for Razorpay have expired. Follow the steps given below to resolve the issue:

  1. Log in to .
  2. Generate new .
  3. Replace the old API Key and Secret in your integration code with the newly generated API keys.
