    Hi Graham.

    I have the slider running on this page –
    Under the LayUp (Pay Now, Travel Later) payment option.

    I’d like to have the slider under the Mobicred (Travel Now, Pay Later) payment option as well, but here it will use an interest rate to determine the monthly repayment amounts.

    Please, can you assist?

      Hi Hein,
      If you have the pro version you can put two calculators on the same page.

    in order to implement/learn the plugin , nothing work for me except the basic shortcode [qis]
    how do i “activate” or impliment the short code like this : [qis percentages="90,8.3,98.3,1.7"] ?

  3. Nick Kane said:

    Hey, is there a way to display just a weekly repayment amount, I don’t want monthly. Cheers, Nick

    • Graham said:

      Hi Nick,
      You can output anything you like. Set the ‘Repayment Divider’ value to 52 to get weeks from years.

  4. shaun kelly said:

    Can I set the term to years and repayment to weeks? I set the divider to 52 but it still shows as a yearly amount

    • Graham said:

      Hi Shaun,
      Seems to be working now. On a $2000 loan over 2 years the weekly repayments are $34

  5. Leonard said:

    please non of these short code are working. It’s only the [qis] codes that works. How can I make them work ?

    • Graham said:

      Please send a link to the calculator page. The shortcodes all work for me.

  6. Esmeralda said:

    Hello, how are you?
    I want my calculator show me (below the sliders): number of weekly payments, amount of each payment, monthly rate, total interest, 8% commission

    1. I guess I fill the most of the values already, but I don’t know where the commission goes
    2. Also I am super confused with the output options. I don’t know exactly which shortcode use to get the values ​​mentioned above

    An example:
    number of payments: 16 weekly
    amount of each payment: $ 7,000.00
    Annual rate: 36%
    monthly rate: 3.0%
    total interest: $ 12,000.00
    commission: 8%

    *I don’t know if numbers are ok, but this is the example of how a i want to see the results pf calculation

    The parameters of the calculator are:

    Minimum amount: $ 50,000
    Maximum Amount: $ 150,000
    Minimum term: 3 months
    Maximum period: 24 months
    Rate from 3 to 5 months: 43%
    Rate from 6 to 11 months: 36%
    Rate from 12 to 24: 30%

    Can you help me?
    Thank you, have a nice day!

      Hi Esmeralda,
      I’ve sent you an email with the details on how to do this.

  7. Joe said:

    small typo: [princple] >> [principle]

    • Graham said:

      Thanks Joe, all done. Still trying to fix the other bugs

  8. tariq said:

    Yes. That just calculates interest with (principle+service fee)

    i want the output to show the monthly repayment with service included. eg if the total payment including fees is 5000.
    The output should be 5000/term. im getting 5000 -fees/term

    • Graham said:

      I’ve tested and the fees get added before interest is calculated. So not sure why it’s not working for you.

  9. tariq said:


    How do you display monthly repayments = principal + interest + service fee /months.
    The repayments are calculating before the service fee is added ,displaying excluding the service fee.

    • Graham said:

      Hi Tariq,
      Have you tried using the option to add the fees before interest is calculated?

  10. Ben said:

    how to add the amount of monthly installment?

    • Graham said:

      Hi Ben,
      Just use the [repayment] shortcode as in the example above

  11. Shane said:

    Is it possible to do the following: Home sold for ($xxxxx) amount. You would save 3% = ($xxxxx) amount.

    thank you,

  12. kentneo said:

    Hi Graham,
    I am having problems with the shortcode [princple]. It does not work. Can you help me? Will I do something wrong? My website

    • Graham said:

      I’ve looked at your site and works correctly

  13. John said:

    Hi Graham
    How do is set max term using teh shortcode? I tried term=5 and maxterm=5 but no joy

  14. James said:

    Hi, I would like the Loan Period to be in “Years”, and display the repayment amount in “Months”.

    This is an expected requirement in most banks’ calculators. How do i do that ? It seems that if i select the Loan Period in “Years”, the repayment shown will be in “Years” too.

    If there’s no way around this, can i please request a refund on my purchase? thanks and much appreciated.

    • Graham said:

      Hi James,
      Set the repayment divider to 12 to get monthly repayments. Then use the [repayment] shortcode in the repayment terms.

  15. tariq said:

    hi. how do you get it to output on a new line in “output repayment terms”
    all the outputs go on a single line? should i use a comma or colon etc?

    • Graham said:

      I do this:
      Interest: [rate]<br>Repayment: [repayment] each [period]
      or this:
      p>Interest: <b>[rate]</b></p><p>Repayment: <b>[repayment]</b> each [period]</p>
      or you can use the [table] shortcode

  16. Adam Johnson said:

    Hi there,

    I am trying to do an interest only loan so my [repayment] value seems to be incorrect…from what I can see it is including the actual repayment value too.

    Is there any way of outputting the monthly interest payment?

    • Graham said:

      Hi Adam,
      I could develop a shortcode for this but it would need a bit of thought as it will have to cope with loan periods of years, months and weeks. All you can do at the moment is output the total interest.

  17. Thanh said:

    Hello, I want to substract an amount from the interest and display this result.
    Ex : interest 20 000€ and downpayment 2 000€, I want to display the result 18 000€.
    Please help me

    • Graham said:

      Hi Thanh,
      I’m not sure you can do that. Downpayments are usually subtracted from the principle not the interest. In theory it could work but it may be that the downpayment is greater than the interest which would mean you owe them money.

  18. Tim Lester said:

    Hi Graham,
    Thank you for the reply. I put AUD as the currency code but you are right the error doesn’t stop it from working.
    Maybe custom shortcodes or is there a way to execute php ( to do something like [princple]*0.083 and or other calculations and display in the “Output Options”?

    Kind regards
    Tim Lester

    Thank you for your plugin. I have it at . I am having trouble with Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/payxcom/public_html/wp-content/plugins/quick-interest-slider/settings.php on line 193 . Maybe it doesn’t like PHP 7.1?

    I am also have issues with calculating 90% and 8.3% of the slider value.

    • Graham said:

      Hi Tim,
      Not sure why you are seeing the error message. That line is to do with the currency options and shouldn’t affect anything. As to the dual interest rates. You are trying to do something the plugin was never designed to do. I might be able to do something to use the primary and secondary interest rates but it’s not a simple fix.
