Troubleshoot, feature requests and 3rd party integration
Unlike most Alipay Mainland China integration plugins, Woo Alipay is provided for free.
Woo Alipay is regularly updated, and bug reports are welcome, preferably on Github. Each bug report will be addressed in a timely manner, but issues reported on WordPress may take significantly longer to receive a response.
Woo Alipay has been tested with the latest version of WordPress and WooCommerce – in case of issue, please ensure you are able to reproduce it with a default installation of WordPress, WooCommerce plugin, and Storefront theme and any of the aforementioned supported plugins if used before reporting a bug.
Feature requests (such as “it would be nice to have XYZ”) or 3rd party integration requests (such as “it is not working with XYZ plugin” or “it is not working with my theme”) will be considered only after receiving a red envelope (红包) of a minimum RMB 500 on WeChat (guarantee of best effort, no guarantee of result).
