Hi, love the module however after adding all the info into the module I get a really long error message in an iframe on the page that the button is added to… it starts off with
Error: exception ‘GoCardlessPro\Core\Exception\InvalidApiUsageException’ with message ‘Insufficient permissions’ in /home/sites/######/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gocardless-pro/lib/gcp/vendor/gocardless/gocardless-pro/lib/Core/ApiClient.php:100
Hi. Do you have a redirect flow shortcode on the same page as a Success Redirect Page redirection? This has caused problems in the past.
not sure what you mean, can I email you?
the success thankyou page has just text theres NO shortcode
Can you send us some admin login details please and we’ll take a look?
sure, to what email address can I send it to?
email sent to contact@
Hi, I have some pay links and payment plans set up on gocardless already, is there anyway I can import these in?
No – the plugin cannot import existing links & plans from GoCardless.
URGENT HELP NEEDED! Hi there, just installing this plugin and it has just crashed the site and taken the live site down! all it shows for backend and front end is this message on a white page! There is no way to go into the controls panel or anything. The site has to be live.
“GoCardless requires at least PHP version 5.5 to be installed on your server to operate correctly. You only have version 5.4.42 installed. Please contact your host and request PHP version 5.5. Do not proceed until this problem has been rectified.
Unable to continue.”
Please help me ASAP
GoCardless requires at least PHP 5.5 to work. It will not work on a server using PHP 5.4.42, hence the message.
I’ve tested your plugin in SandBox mode and it all worked fine and then I switched it to live mode with different account and it shows this error:
Error: exception ‘GoCardlessPro\Core\Exception\ValidationFailedException’ with message ‘Validation failed (success_redirect_url must use https in production)’ in plugins/gocardless-pro/lib/gcp/vendor/gocardless/gocardless-pro/lib/Core/ApiClient.php:100
Does that mean that I need to purchase the SSL certificate or would that mean that this account is using Legacy API and it needs to be updated and this is why it’s not working?
Hi. Yes, you need SSL to use this. We’ve added a notification to the next version of the plugin which is in the review queue.
@KidMidnight you need to change the PHP version for 5.5 you should be able to do this when you login to control panel where you are hosting it. Google ‘change php version YOUR HOSTING PROVIDER’ and it should tell you step by step how to do it. Hope this helps
Spot on. Thanks for your help.
Would it be possible to get a refund as i have purchased by mistake as i thought it integrated with Wocommerce as a payment option?
Unfortunately we are unable to give a refund in these circumstances.
Hi. Purchased this plugin the other day and I am finding it hard to set up, you mentioned in your description that
The GoCardless Pro plugin for WordPress is easy to set up and use and we’ve included a quick start guide as well as more detailed instructions.
Where can the instructions be found?
Hi Paul. There’s a Help & Usage section in the plugin which should be able to help you. Is there something specifically that you’re having trouble with?
Basically, trying to set up a donation page http://bit.ly/2sWXpv2 for the pay what you want except nothing like a button shows after and its only a text box.
I also want to set up a table with hyperlinks to the gocardless interface
Hi Paul. There looks to be a problem with the connection to GoCardless – if you put a number in the box and then hit the delete key, you get the message “No amount specified!” which means that the plugin is trying. Can you check the GC API tokens that you have / any server logs please? Also, am I right in assuming that you are currently using Sandbox mode for testing? Regard Mike
Hi there, I have purchased the plugin today. I have followed the instructions in the help / setup page and am having difficulty with the NYOA working. It seems to all work ie takes you to GC, and then redirects back to the test page specified. However no customer or payment is created in the Sandbox account. And no extra text is displayed on redirect page to show mandate / payment ref. Can you help please?
Page at http://bit.ly/2tHoWB0. Many thanks Martin
I have just now tested this for “Create Mandate Only” also and get the same behavior?
Hi Martin. I think the caching plugin that you have on your site is causing the problem. Can you disable it and try again please?
Thank you. I have deactivated W3 Total Cache plugin. Now see this error on page?
The following errors were encountered when contacting GoCardless’s system:

I have now reactivated plugin and still getting same error.
Just checked back on this, and since reactivating plugin and cache being recreated, the error has disappeared, however same behaviour continues. So I think cache plugin is hiding error message but not causing the error.
Think I have sorted it, must have been some plugin clash. I installed Plugin Organiser and removed all plugins from the 2 pages (including one redirecting back to) and can now see working. Thanks for the clue
Hi Martin. Glad you found out the problem. Please don’t forget to rate our plugin. Thanks.
5 stars, of course!
Hi, Would this plugin work with WooCommerce Subscriptions or Subscriptio as a way of taking regular GoCardless payments within a WooCommerce subscription service?
Hi Lewis. No, this is a standalone product but you can use it to set up regular GoCardless payments.
Hi, I’ve installed this plugin, but I cannot add any short codes. Using the Divi 3 theme. I add [gcp_paylink ref=1] to display my link but it just disappears when press save. If I use the default WP editor and add the shortcode, it crashes the site saying there is no SSL. The site is in dev mode and on a staging URL, the plugin is in sandbox mode. I shouldn’t be getting this error!!
Hi. Can you post the actual error messages that you’re seeing please?
Is it possible to integrate it with Easy Digital Downloads? #EDD
