  2. That's it! You can now move on to Configuring products.


Configuring products

Configuring products for use with the Vipps/MobilePay recurring payments plugin is not any different from default WooCommerce, with one exception: The configuration for whether the product is virtual or physical is important to consider.

If a product is virtual the customer will be charged immediately but if the product is physical you will have to capture the payment manually through the order in WooCommerce when you have shipped the product.

In most cases your products should be virtual when using subscriptions, but it is possible to use the plugin with physical products if you need to do so.

See the Vipps/MobilePay Knowledge base for more details: What is the difference between "Reserve Capture" and "Direct Capture"?.

Extending the plugin

WooCommerce and WooCommerce Subscriptions has a lot of default actions that interact with the payment flow, so there should not be any need to extend this plugin directly, but if you need an action or filter added to the plugin don't hesitate to create an issue on GitHub, and we will look into this as soon as possible.

The plugin is currently in a pre-release phase and will have more filters, actions and features further down the road.


Constants can be re-defined by using define('CONSTANT_NAME', 'value'); in wp-config.php.

WC_VIPPS_RECURRING_RETRY_DAYS: (integer) default: 4

The amount of days Vipps/MobilePay will retry a charge for before it fails. See Charge retries for more information.

Where can I use Vipps MobilePay?

Vipps MobilePay is available in Norway, Denmark and Finland. Only users who have Vipps Mobilepay will be able to pay with Vipps MobilePay.

How can I test that the plugin works correctly?

If you have access to the Vipps MobilePay test environment, you are able to use the test mode by setting the WC_VIPPS_RECURRING_TEST_MODE constant in wp-config.php. See the getting started guide for details about how to get started using the test environment.

Vipps MobilePay does not offer test accounts for regular users of the plugin, but you can still penny-test the plugin by sending a small amount of money like 1 or 2 NOK using your production keys. You can then refund or cancel the purchase afterward.

Why do I have to capture payments for physical products manually?

This is because of the Norwegian law. You are not allowed to charge for a physical product before you ship it, without a valid reason to do so.

See Guidelines for the standard sales conditions for consumer purchases of goods over the internet for more information.

If you have a valid reason to do so you can use the Capture payment instantly option from the Vipps/MobilePay recurring payments settings in your product's settings.

When a renewal happens, why is the order on hold?

This is because when an order is charged in Vipps MobilePay, it takes 2 days before the payment has been fully captured from the customer's bank account.

After 2 days, it will move to the "Processing" status. You can however change the behavior of this by using the "Default status to give pending renewals" option in the plugin settings.

Alternatively, you could look into using WooCommerce "Early renewals": if ensuring the status of a charge is fully completed before a specific date is of utmost importance.
