Hi there

Phil Derksen

So a little about me…

I’m a product founder, entrepreneur, and software developer. I’ve been building for the web since 1995 and starting product companies since 2011.

I am the founder of WP Simple Pay, a Stripe payments and subscriptions plugin for WordPress.

I’ve had a couple other WordPress plugins acquired — Simple Calendar in 2017 and a Pinterest sharing plugin in 2015.

In October 2018 myself and WP Simple Pay joined Sandhills Development, which includes Easy Digital Downloads, AffilateWP, Restrict Content Pro, Sugar Calendar, and SellBird. Read about why I merged here.

I was a co-host of the Hooked on Products podcast (and a guest on some others).

I live in sunny Clovis, California with my wife, Cori, and my two boys, Kyle and Drew. In my off time, I enjoy tennis, snow skiing, and tabletop games.

Fun fact: I’m certified in Microsoft FrontPage 98.
