Installing the PayWhirl App

PayWhirl Recurring Payments makes it easy to create and manage subscriptions, payment plans and automatic invoicing. With PayWhirl, you can maximize revenue and increase conversions while improving customer satisfaction and loyalty.



The PayWhirl app enables you to offer additional payment options like:

  • subscriptions
  • payment plans
  • layaway programs

PayWhirl eliminates all the custom development work needed to code the tools that allow your shoppers to sign-up for memberships, create accounts and manage their subscriptions.

  • copy and paste setup - no coding required.
  • keep checkout on-site - no redirects to other websites.
  • embeddable widgets, buy buttons and customer portal
  • setup takes minutes/hours, not days/weeks


To process payments with PayWhirl, you will need to connect a payment gateway within PayWhirl. The available payment gateways will depend on the PayWhirl plan you selected during signup.
