Two active plugins doing the same thing


#1

Hello just wondering what would happen if two payment plugins from different companys are active at the same time. eg cashflows and stripe
Thank you in advance

Not necessarily anything negative. Plenty of sites accept payments through multiple processors and separate that functionality in different plugins.

For example, a WooCommerce site might have both the Stripe and PayPal Express Checkout addons active at the same time.

What really matters is how the two plugins interact.

What plugins are you using exactly?

I have used a few different payment gateway on the same site. Just problem was that on the payment page, the customer has to choose which payment method is suitable for him and then select this payment gateway. This means you have to do some custom works on the payment page to choose/jump between payment gateways. It was like that in my scenario.

Nothing bad will happen. You can let them both be active and it won’t make a difference. However, it is recommended that you should remove the one that you do not use because in the future if you install more plugins, it will only put more load on your website.
