Monetization & Gateways


A claim for a listing can be either for free or paid. In order to enable paid listing and pricing plan etc. to work, you need to enable monetization first.

Go to Dashboard > Directorist Listings > Directorist Settings > Monetization Settings and Set ‘Enable Monetization Feature‘ to Yes.

Gateway Settings

You need to set up at least one gateway to process payments from your user. Directorist Claim listing add-on is compatible with all payment gateways that the Directorist plugin supports. You can process payments using an offline gateway like bank transfer or an online gateway like PayPal* or Stripe*. You can also use multiple payment gateways on your site simultaneously.

Go to Dashboard > Directorist Listings > Directorist Settings > Monetization Settings > Gateways Settings and customize the settings according to your need. All settings have detailed descriptions. Please see the screenshot and the description of each gateway settings below. To know the details settings of PayPal and Stripe Gateways, please check out their documentation. (PayPal Documentation & Stripe Documentation)

Gateway Settings

Gateway Settings


Enable Offline Payment:

If you want to collect payment offline, you need to set this option to “YES”. It is good if you want to collect payment via Bank Transfer or in Cash.

Enable Test Mode

If you want to test your website payment processing system, you should set this option to “YES”. While you are in the Test Mode, no live transaction will be made. You must set this option to “NO” on your production/live site to collect payment from your users.

Active Gateways

You can enable one or more gateways to be used during checkout to process the payment. Any gateways you check under this option will be displayed during the checkout so that user can pay you using their preferred gateways. Using multiple gateways is a good idea as it gives your user a lot of flexibility to pay you easily. Check out our all payment gateways here if you are interested.

Default Gateway

If you have multiple gateways enabled under the Active Gateways Settings, the default gateway set in this setting will be selected by default on the checkout page.

Currency Settings

These currency settings let you customize how you would like to accept payment from your user/customer and how to display pricing on the order form/history.

Currency Name

Enter the name of the currency you would like to display with the price and accept the payment from your users in that currency. For example USD or GBP etc. Note: accepting payment in certain currency depends on the type of payment gateway you use. Not all payment gateways support all currency. Check out your payment gateway’s documentation to know the full list of currency they support.

Enter a separator for the thousand value of a currency. For example: ,  (a comma) or . (a dot) etc.

Enter the currency decimal separator. Eg. “.” or “,”. Default is “.”

You can show the currency symbol before or after the price. Select where you would like to show the currency symbol. The default is before. Eg. $5


*Depends on additional directorist add-ons like the Directorist PayPal, Directorist Stripe.
