WordCamp St. Louis & Taking Payments Using Clearent’s WordPress Payments Plug-in

WordCamp 2016

So what kind of work do you do? I asked this open-ended question to every WordCamp St. Louis attendee who stopped by Clearent’s table last weekend at Washington University. I borrowed the conversation starter from my colleague Andrew Bell (pictured left with developer Jill Willard). I liked how people visibly opened up by relaxing their shoulders when they heard it. Like they were honored to talk about their work, because it meant they could talk about their passion rather than just their job title and company name.

As you can imagine, I heard some interesting responses. This was a WordCamp St. Louis event after all! I met a mini bike distributor, an author, and even a nut milk start-up. The other group of people I met were full-time and freelance web designers and web developers. All were using WordPress as a conduit to market their passions—whether it was for themselves or for their clients. And they all needed a way to accept payments.

Enter our new WordPress payments plug-in.

Clearent’s payments plug-in is different than other plug-ins for 3 main reasons.

  1. Live customer support. Whether you need to speak to a developer (yes, speak to a real person on the phone) or your client needs to speak to someone about their statement, you can call our St. Louis office at 866-435-0666.
  2. Pricing. The non-traditional payments providers who shall not be named are expensive for small businesses. For example, your client could pay $5.50 in card processing fees for a $150 transaction with a non-traditional provider. With Clearent, it could be $3.50.
  3. Referral program. For designers and developers working with multiple clients, Clearent has a generous referral program. We will pay you for every client you get to process payments using our plug-in.

So…what kind of work do you do? Let’s talk. Or are you ready to get started? Download the plug-in.
