  • search engine friendly URLs (“pretty permalinks”) activated in the WordPress admin area, or
  • URL rewriting used for the response URL

Realex Payments Configuration

Return URL

For the return URL, use your shopping cart page URL with “?wpcomethod=realexreturn” appended to it. So if your shopping cart page URL is for example, the return URL should be .

Some sites don’t have “pretty permalinks” turned on under Settings > Permalinks in the WordPress dashboard and thus the return URL won’t work since Realex Payments doesn’t support the ampersand (&) in the query string at all.

PLEASE NOTE: If using https:// the return url must begin with https://
