Description

Take Credit card payments easily and directly on your store

The Stripe plugin extends WooCommerce allowing you to take payments directly on your store via Stripe’s API.

Stripe is available in:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • UK
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • The Netherlands
  • and more

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 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 now includes Apple Pay support, which means customers can pay using payment details associated to their Apple ID. Checkout is now just a thumbprint away. on both mobile and desktop.

Web Payments API Support

WooCommerce Stripe now 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.

Reviews

Plugin OK – but Stripe hopeless

I have no complaints about the plugin itself, works as expected.

However, Stripe the company who do the credit card processing behind it are hopeless. Basically, if you sell any kind of branded goods you cannot use them – and this is not made clear at all. They say they only accept ‘authorised resellers’ of branded goods – but do not accept any proof when you are a legitimate ‘authorised reseller’.

I sell branded goods from Star Wars, Marvel etc. All legitimate from licensed wholesalers who have authorised me to re-sell the goods. I offered to send them copies of invoices, letter from the wholesaler, my contact at the wholesaler, etc all to no avail. They were not interested in any of it. Only kept coming back to me saying they only accepted ‘authorised resellers’. Basically as they refuse point blank to even look at documentation proving ‘authorised reseller’ status I do not know how anyone can sell branded goods via their service at all. They should just change their T&C to say they do not accept sellers of any branded goods.

So I basically wasted time and effort in setting everything up and testing all for nothing.

Stay away from Stripe!!!

We have been in business 14 years, process well over 200k worth of transactions each month, have been with authorize for years. Recently switched to stripe due to more modern fraud detection so we thought. After letting our transactions get bigger and bigger Stripe emailed us they will be closing our account due to high risk. We sell regular retatil electronics, no chargebacks at all. Than we get another email they are holding all our funds for 90 days. Over 30k they are just holding for no reason!! if you google around you can learn about this is a normal practice with stripe, its crazy they are still in business!

Broken Plugin

Keeps saying Javascript & JQuery error. Keeps telling me it’s a theme problem but the theme people tell me it’s this plugin problem. Funny same problem on two sites

bad service…

after losing many hours configuring plugin I send a ticket to support so that they inform me that they decide (without solid arguments) that they do not allow using the plugin because my website does not have low risk of conflict (????) deplorable that they offer something that it is not clear in which cases they operate and in which cases they do not. I have paypal for 12 years without any type of claim or confict. The plugin is not recommended if you do not want to waste time

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for such helpful integration! I was looking for Stripe add-on long time. Now I’ve got it!
