There are two settings areas where you need to activate the payment methods you want to accept on your website. 

The Stripe Dashboard and the Plugin Settings

1. Stripe Dashboard

We suggest reading this section completely before attempting to activate payment methods in the Stripe Dashboard.

To check if your payment settings are activated correctly, log into the Stripe Dashboard and go the Settings > Payment Methods. If your desired payment options are properly enabled, you will see the "Live" badge next to them. 

If they aren't activated, click the "Activate" button to enable the payment option or apply for activation. WeChat Pay has an application that you need to fill out to activate. Be sure your business is in compliance with the WeChat Payment System User Service Agreement when answering these questions.

Alipay must be activated separately and supports one-time payments out of the box. To enable Alipay subscription payments, you must make the request to Stripe support directly based on this article in their documentation. After a discussion with Stripe support as of Dec 2020, they stated they plan to add a button in the dashboard and/or automate the ability to activate Alipay subscriptions on your Stripe account in the future.

2.Plugin Settings

The second area where you need to make sure you have enabled the payment methods is the settings page of the China Payments plugin. These are the steps to activate the payment methods:

A. Go to the left side of the WordPress Dashboard and select China Payments.

For WeChat and Alipay payments to be activated, you need to have a premium license or free trial.

B. Select the "Payment Options" tab and check all the boxes next to each payment option. Make sure to click "Save Changes."
