Updating WP Full Pay to v7

To update a WP Full Pay plugin, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your WordPress site.
  2. Navigate to the 'Plugins' menu on the dashboard.
  3. Click the 'update now' link next to the WP Full Pay plugin. WordPress will automatically download and install the update.

WP Full Pay v7.0 represents a significant upgrade. The major change is the transition from the older "Stripe Elements" to the new "Stripe Payment Element", enhancing the user interface and allowing customers to select their preferred payment method easily.

Additionally, we've upgraded to Stripe Connect for a more secure Stripe connection and easier support for your Stripe setup.

V7.0 is designed to let you keep using your existing forms until you complete the Connect setup.

  • In the WordPress admin, go to Full Pay → Settings.
  • Select "Stripe account" at the top.
  • If your site is in Live mode, click "Connect live account" and follow the redirection to Stripe.
  • Log in with your Stripe credentials during the onboarding flow and select your existing account.
  • Complete any required steps in the Stripe onboarding process.
  • After setting up the Live account, click "Connect test account" and provide any additional information needed.
  • Your existing forms and other configurations will continue to work as before.

Note: If you use the Members add-on or have custom code relying on hooks, review the Add-on and custom hook configuration section for compatibility.

Upgrading from v5.x or v6.x to v7.x

If you're planning to upgrade your WP Full Pay from version 5.x to the latest v7.x, it's crucial to be prepared for some significant changes that could occur between versions 5 and 6, especially in relation to Stripe product integration.

Understanding the Changes:

  • The key update in v7.x revolves around Stripe product handling, enhancing the overall functionality and security of your payment processes.
  • Upgrading to v7.x means you need to set up new Stripe products. If this step is skipped, your current forms might stop working correctly, leading to potential disruptions on your website.

Preparation for the upgrade

  1. Before moving to v7.x, it's essential to create and configure new Stripe products within WP Full Pay. This ensures a smooth transition and operational continuity of your payment forms.
  2. To avoid disruptions, consider scheduling the upgrade during a period of low activity on your site. Allocating downtime or choosing off-peak hours for the update can prevent significant impacts on your site traffic and user experience.
  3. Always back up your website before proceeding with the upgrade to make sure you have a restore point in case of any unforeseen issues during the transition.
