Stripe Payments


The Stripe Payments plugin allows you to accept credit card payments via Stripe payment gateway on your WordPress site easily.

It has a simple shortcode that lets you put Stripe “Buy Now” buttons anywhere on your site for a product or service. You can accept donation via Stripe also.

One click payment via Stripe with a remember me feature. Responsive design so it is compatible with all devices and browsers.

Your customers will be redirected to the “Checkout Result” page after the credit card payment. This page shows them the details of the transaction (the item that they just paid for).

The transaction info is also captured in the orders menu of the plugin. You can view all the payments you received from your WordPress admin dashboard.

Love it

Does what it’s supposed to, doesn’t nag you to purchase, and is easy to use. Way to go dev! 🙂

Works perfectly and easy to install


Great plugin! It works flawlessly and is a lot easier to figure out and configure than a premium Easy Digital Downloads alternative that I had previously tried. This plugin currently accepts only one-time Stripe payments. I would love it if future versions of the plugin would also allow recurring Stripe payments, too. Would that be possible, Mr. or Ms. Plugin Maker?

Excellent Plugin

Its an excellent plugin for sure.
It could use a few helpful features but overall really cool.

Simple and Effective – Support Listened

This plugin is simple to set up and extremely effective. It did have a snafu where the email responses we’re utilizing the “codes” the setup page clearly said you could. I used the Plugin support forum and they patched the issue.

Can’t ask for much more in a free plugin! Thank you for a great plugin!
