eShop for WordPress comes with basic PayPal support out of the box. This means that your client gets sent to PayPal to make their payments and has the option of not returning. With eShop PayPal Pro Merchant Gateway plugin, you can collect the payment directly from the checkout page, no redirections to outside servers whatsoever.
For PCI compliance, no Credit Card data gets stored. It is up to you, however, to set up SSL on the checkout page.
Once you activate this plugin, a new section is shown under Settings -> eShop -> Merchant Gateways.
Tick the ‘Accept payment by PayPal Pro’ box and enter your Sandbox and Live PayPal credentials (API Username, API Password, and Signature). If you don’t use PayPal Payments Pro yet, click here to learn more about it.
Tick the credit cards that you want to use – note that PayPal does not allow American Express and Discover in certain regions. Make sure to test those cards before going live. Test credit card numbers can be found here.
Click ‘Save Changes’ and you’re good to go.
When your clients reach the checkout page, they will see the Credit Card option as one of the payment methods. If it is the only active option, the CC fields will be visible. The type of credit card is identified automatically when the clients type in the number. If there are more Payment options, the fields will only be displayed if the clients click on the CC radio button.

eShop Multi-Currencies plugin for WordPress gives you the ability to offer multiple currencies to your visitors. Select from over 165 currencies and display your chosen ones via a widget or shortcode. eShop’s default currency settings (base currency and base currency symbol) are moved to the new Currencies tab under eShop -> Settings, where you can also select whether to fetch exchange rates via OpenExchangeRates.org. Display allowed currencies using either a shortcode or a widget.
Once you activate this plugin, a new Tab is shown under Settings -> eShop -> Currencies.
The new currencies tab on the far right.
You will also find that the currency symbol and currency options that were originally under ‘General’ and ‘Merchant Gateways’ tabs, respectively, have been moved to the new tab under the ‘eShop Base Currency’ box.
eShop Base Currency Settings
In addition to those two items, you can also select to have the plugin always send the base currency to the merchant gateway, or whatever currency the client has selected. CAVEAT: This is a potentially dangerous option, depending on the merchant gateway. Potential issues include failed transaction due to currency not accepted by the gateway, failed transaction due to given currency different from base currency without explicit acceptance in the gateway settings (outside of eShop), or even additional currency conversion fees. Make sure you know what you’re doing and test it out in a sandbox before using this option.
Open Exchange Rates
When dealing with multiple currencies, the system needs to know the exchange rates for each selected option. The plugin comes with integration with http://openexchangerates.org and instructions on how to get a free account. Due to performance reasons, exchange rates are not fetched in real time, but scheduled from hourly to monthly. You can also force the system to update on demand.
The next section is for the actual allowed currencies. Choose as many currencies as you want (remember to play by your Merchant Gateway’s rules), and set the name, symbol, conversion rate (if you’re not using OXR as that sets it for you). You can also adjust fixed rates and percentages if you feel you need to. If you want to deactivate a currency without actually removing it, just toggle the ‘Active’ checkbox.
eShop Orders Screen
To help you keep track of the currencies the sales have been made in (for those passing the non-base currency to the Merchant Gateways), All orders screens have been updated to display the 3-letter currency code instead of the base currency’s symbol.
Currency preference is kept via a cookie in your customer’s browser. When he completes the payment and opts to create an account, the preferred currency is stored and is viewable/modifiable under your customer’s profile screen.
Shortcode and Widget
You can place the currency selector drop-down anywhere you want by using the [emc-currency-selector] shortcode, or the special widget provided by the plugin. To add it directly to your theme, call
This plugin uses shortcode_exists(), which was added in WP 3.6. It has been tested with WP v4.1 and newer.
