Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Stripe Payment Gateway » Enable Stripe Checkout: any advantage?

  • Resolved wpok


    Hi guys,

    I’m testing the option “Enable Stripe Checkout”.
    Is there any advantage using this vs the Woocommerce on-page checkout?

    Hi wpok,

    Using the Stripe gateway has lots of advantages, but it ultimately comes down to what your needs are.Stripe has no monthly or annual charges, it connects directly with your Stripe account, and works well with Subscriptions. You can let your returning customers save their credit card details with Stripe, and you can issue refunds with Subscriptions. However, it’s not available in all countries. You will also need a valid SSL certificate.

    Here’s a bit more.

    Hello Zandy,

    I wasn’t asking about Stripe in general ๐Ÿ™‚
    but about the option:
    “Enable Stripe Checkout”
    That opens the Stripe popup instead of using the on-page credit card form in Woocommerce.

    I don’t understand why choosing the popup can benefit.

    Hi wpok,

    Oh. ๐Ÿ™‚ Whoops!

    Ok, well, we have more information on that specifically here.

    Basically, you get added functionality by enabling the pop-up.

    These are the additions:

    • Stripe Checkout locale: English is default. Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish are also offered Auto displays userโ€™s preferred language, if available.
    • Bitcoin Currency: Tick the box if you would like to accept Bitcoin via Stripe.
    • Stripe Checkout Image: Enter the URL of a 128ร—128 px image/logo to be displayed in checkout. Use an image already uploaded to your site or upload one now at Media > Add New.

    I hope that helps!

    I think it makes the checkout page feel a little cleaner and a nicer experience for the buyer.
