The plugin broke the config on the theme. Worked using a shortcode.

Tested this plugin with the commercial Fox Theme. Of all the plugins I have used on this site – including those with far greater complexity – this is the one that messed up my site design. It displaced the background, so that it started at the widget level (rather than at the header; it placed a cup image/icon in the footer, covering up the cookie consent button; and, atop that, had a truly limited set of customization features (no chance to customize that the color of the button or its font to match the theme design). Removed.

This plugin doesn't follow Wordpress guidelines of code ethics. It might break your website.

Shame. This looked like an ideal plugin. But it doesn't accept payments. I have both Stripe and PayPal accounts. I attempted to connect them both, but when I tried a test payment, both options fail. I worked through a number of changes, nothing worked and there is no support 🙁 Good luck getting it to work, I hope you have more success

I had trouble adding a payment method signing up, but you can't get support unless you add a payment method. So I couldn't get support unless I added a payment method and I couldn't add a payment method because it was broken for some reason. Can you say Catch 22? I eventually got it working, but no thanks to them.
