Stripe is a simple way to accept payments online. With Stripe you can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards, even Bitcoin, directly on your store.

Why choose Stripe?

Stripe has no setup fees, no monthly fees, no hidden costs: you only get charged when you earn money! Earnings are transferred to your bank account on a 7-day rolling basis.

Stripe also supports the WooCommerce Subscriptions extension and re-using cards. When a customer pays, they are set up in Stripe as a customer. If they create another order, they can check out using the same card. A massive timesaver for returning customers.

Apple Pay Support

WooCommerce Stripe includes Apple Pay support, which means customers can pay using payment details associated with their Apple ID. Checkout is now just an authorization (Touch ID or Face ID) away on both mobile and desktop. Only supports simple, variable, and Subscription products for now. More support to come.

Web Payments API Support

WooCommerce Stripe includes Web Payments API support, which means customers can pay using payment details associated to their mobile devices, in browsers supporting the Web Payments API (Chrome for Android, amongst others). Checkout is now just a few taps away on mobile. Only supports simple, variable, and Subscription products for now. More support to come.

Screenshots

  • Offer a range of payment methods such as local and alternative payment methods.
  • Pay with a saved payment method, a new card, and allow customers to save the payment card for future transactions.
  • Apple Pay and other Payment Request buttons can be used on the Product Page and Checkout for express checkout.

Installation

You can download an older version of this gateway for older versions of WooCommerce from here.

Please note, v4 of this gateway requires WooCommerce 3.0 and above.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the WooCommerce Stripe plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “WooCommerce Stripe Payment Gateway” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating, and description. Most importantly, of course, you can install it by simply clicking «Install Now», then «Activate».

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

FAQ

Does this support recurring payments, like for subscriptions?

Yes!

Does this require an SSL certificate?

Yes! In Live Mode, an SSL certificate must be installed on your site to use Stripe. In addition to SSL encryption, Stripe provides an extra JavaScript method to secure card data using Stripe Elements.

Does this support both production mode and sandbox mode for testing?

Yes, it does – production and Test (sandbox) mode is driven by the API keys you use with a checkbox in the admin settings to toggle between both.

Where can I find documentation?

For help setting up and configuring, please refer to our documentation.

Where can I get support or talk to other users?

If you get stuck, you can ask for help in the Plugin Forum.

Was working fine for two years but as previous negative rating suggests, the settings don’t save, or would appear to save but on page refresh, the existing settings are still shown.

Battled with this thing for 90min, following the docs, setting up webhooks, fiddling with settings and getting practically nowhere. Settings wouldn’t save, or would save but say they hadn’t, or get stuck in test mode. I googled and troubleshot extensively, cleared caches, tried other browers, fiddled settings and even after a little progress, still couldn’t get payment fields to show up at checkout.Installed the next most popular plugin (with a much better rating) and had test payments flowing in a matter of minutes. Why does the official WooCommerce plugin for any task always seem to be among the most frustrating?

very bad styling and limited payment options, works for nearly 5% of what stripe offers. way better options already available from stripe verified partners.

We were unable to access our wp admin area which after testing and turning off plugins, turned out to be Stripe’s latest update. We’ve rolled back to the previous version and removed Stripe payments.
