    For more information about the payment methods, refer to Payment Methods.

    Recurring payment

    This solution allows you to purchase products with recurring charges (e.g. subscriptions).

    During the first payment, a token is assigned that allows Nexi to save the match between the user and the payment card used.

    Subsequent payments will be made automatically on the date set in the subscription product settings.

    To use this mode you need to install the Woocommerce Subscription plugin.


    This solution involves generating a Woocommerce side order, selecting the appropriate products and the customer who wants to make the purchase.

    An email will be sent to the customer containing a link to make the payment. The customer will be redirected to the checkout page of the E-commerce site.

    Back office functions

    In the details of each order, the plugin provides information relating to transactions such as the details of the card used and the status of payments on the XPay gateway.


    It is possible to perform total or partial refund operations. This operation will reverse the desired amount by refunding the customer and changing the status of the Woocommerce order. Here are the steps to do:

    It is possible to obtain the test credentials (API key) in the test environment. In the area there will also be test cards that can be used to execute successful and negative transactions. At this stage it is necessary to verify that the orders are created correctly, also checking the details of the orders.

    Once the API Key has been created, the module configuration must be updated as below:

    2. In the left navigation bar, select Plugins > Installed plugins.
    3. On the new page look for the Nexi XPay plugin in the list and click on Settings.
