How to use the plugin


Out of the box the plugin captures all payments immediately after it has been authorised.

To activate delayed capture mode, go to the settings page of the plugin (Downloads->Settings->Payment Gateways->Paylike) and tick the “Preapprove Only?” checkbox.

With this setting active, the plugin will not capture the payment before you go to Downloads->Payment History->Preapproval Pending and click “Process payment”.

Use delayed capture mode if you are not delivering the download immediately to the customer.


From a specific payment (“order”), in the box on the right “Update payment” change the status to “Refunded” and tick the “Refund transaction in Paylike” checkbox. Choose which amount to refund and click “Save Payment”.


Only payments that haven't been captured can be voided (only the case if you use the delayed capture mode).

Go to Downloads->Payment History->Preapproval and click “Cancel Preapproval” to void a payment.
