Integration/Authentication Setup

After installing and activating the plugin, you need to connect it to your Zoho Subscriptions organization. To do this:

  1. Navigate to the Zoho Subscriptions plugin from the Installed Plugins section in the left sidebar.
  2. Select the domain from which you access Zoho Subscriptions.
  3. Enter the Connector Key from Zoho Subscriptions.
    Tip: You can find your domain and the Connector Key by going to Zoho Subscriptions > Settings > Integrations > Other Apps > WordPress Integration.
  4. Click the Save button


You can embed your hosted payment pages from Zoho Subscriptions by including the following shortcode while drafting (or editing) a page/post in WordPress:

[zs plan_code="BASIC"] 

Copy and paste the shortcode above in WordPress’ editor. Next, replace BASIC in the shortcode with your plan’s actual Plan Code. You can see what your embedded hosted payment page looks like by previewing your page/post.

Tip: You can find your plan’s Plan Code by going to Zoho Subscriptions > Products. Select a product and copy the Plan Code for the plan whose hosted payment pages you’d like to embed.

You can adjust the width of your embedded hosted payment page by specifying a custom width in the shortcode above. Here’s how:

[zs plan_code="BASIC" width="600"]

Replace 600 in the shortcode above with your required width. If you do not include the “width” parameter, the default width will be set as 700.

Note: If you’re on a version of the plugin (v2.0 and below) which uses Authtokens to connect with Zoho Subscriptions, update your plugin as soon as possible to the latest version and set it up again, since the usage of Authtokens will be deprecated soon.

Installed this today. Setup was easy (was already logged into my Zoho Account) and adding the Subscription form was simple.. Probably want to make sure you have an SSL Certificate on your site and HTTPS active on the subscription page. As said, no errors here, displaying as intentended.

Fatal error on activation. Other users complaining of the same 6 months ago, no support from the devs. Pretty much the worst kind of plugin out there. Very sceptical about using zoho subscriptions if this is their standard
