So now let's talk about how we add payment methods to our Wix website.
Accepting Payments on Wix
Well, first and foremost, if you're having a Wix eCommerce store, you want to ensure that you have the Wix eCommerce plan now, Wix offers three different eCommerce plans ranging from $20 a month up to $30 a month. And then there's the mid level $25 a month plan. Well, you have to look at the features and benefits of both and determine which plan is going to be best for you. I recommend if you're unsure to just go with that middle plan at $25 a month, but this is needed in order to accept payments on your Wix website, as it is the eCommerce plan.
Although Wix does not take any commission, anything off the top, nothing like that. So there's no need to worry about any you know, payments from Wix off the top, but to actually begin adding payment methods, once you've added your Wix stores, which you can go to the editor, click add, and then click which stores that's how you add the physical store.
I have lots of tutorials here on the channel showing how to set up a store, including my brand new Wix eCommerce series. But once you've got that set up to add payment methods, we're actually going to go to our Wix dashboard. So we're not going to be in the editor. We're going to be in the dashboard. We're going to go over to the left hand side and we're going to scroll down to settings. Right?
Once we get to settings, there will be a option on the menu there that says accept payments. When we get there, you're going to see a couple different options. You're going to see PayPal. You're going to see credit and debit card. You're going to see AliPay. You're going to see square card reader. And you're also going to see manual payment options. So now what do each of these mean? Well, credit card, PayPal and square reader.
I think you all get the concept behind those. Those can be connected PayPal through email credit and debit card. They'll have you go through an onboarding process, very simple, very quick and easy, and it goes through Stripe. So if you don't know, a Stripe is it's similar to PayPal, it's a little bit more developer friendly and then square car reader is for your card reader. So if you have a square a little device it's for that. So you can start charging payments through that square card reader on your Wix stores.
Now the manual and AliPay, AliPay is made for Chinese exclusively. AliPay can be used in the U.S but it's the Chinese version of accepting payments and then the manual method. So this is a method. If you wanted someone to pick up their actual item may be in store or come and pay in cash.
This is what the manual item would look like. As far as accepting payments. Now you can do a combo of both. So you can do, like if you have Wix bookings or you have, Wix stores you can do a portion of the payments do online and then a portions do upfront as the store per se. So let's say you own a little mom and pop store on main street, right? So people are going down there. They're buying items except they, you know, they don't want to get off the couch today. They just want to order online today. So they order online, but they say, you know what? I'll come in this week to pick up the the actual item. So maybe they avoid shipping. Well, in that case scenario, you can offer a manual payment method. So that way they can just pay once they get to the shop.
Guys, these are the different payment methods within Wix. Again, once you have your Wix eCommerce hosting plan, you're set and ready off to the races, you're able to accept payments. And then once you accept and connect, one of these payment methods, you are officially set and ready and can start taking live payments on your Wix eCommerce store. Or maybe you have Wix bookings, other forms of payments on your Wix website doesn't quite member matter. They all connect to that same payment gateway that you've set up in the backend settings in your Wix store.
