About This Feature
Creators on TCommerce: Powered by Thinkific Payments* can leverage Digital Wallet payment methods.
*in Thinkific Payment-supported countries
Digital wallets are electronic versions of traditional physical wallets. They allow learners to store and manage their payment information, such as credit and debit cards, in a secure digital format. When making a purchase, they can use their digital wallet to pay instead of using a physical card.
- Faster Payments
Allows your learners to complete transactions quickly without the need to enter payment information or navigate to a third-party payment gateway.
- Customer Convenience
Offers a convenient payment option by allowing learners to store multiple payment methods in one place and make purchases with just a few clicks. TCommerce offers multiple, convenient, frequently used payment options across different regions, helping you provide your audience with more convenient ways to pay.
Digital wallets are designed with mobile devices in mind, making them a popular payment option for those who prefer to shop on their smartphones or tablets.
How Digital Wallets Work
To use a digital wallet, learners will need to first set up an account with a provider. They will then add their payment information to the account, and link it to their device. When checking out, they can select to pay with a digital wallet, and can then select their preferred provider and complete the transaction.
You will be able to see which digital wallet a learner used to purchase your product through the Orders Table or Transactions Table. When a learner purchases using their digital wallet, you will receive the transaction amount in your bank account via Thinkific Payments, just like credit card transactions.

To issue a refund for purchases made using digital wallets, you can use the Thinkific dashboard and follow the same process as you would for a standard credit card transaction processed by Thinkific Payments. There is no transaction fee to refund a purchase, but the transaction fees from the original purchase are not refunded.
If you need to refund a purchase made with CashApp, you can issue a full or partial refund for up to 7 years after the original purchase. CashApp will process the refunds asynchronously and refund the original payment method (either the customer’s Cash App balance or linked debit card) once you initiate the refund.
