WP Stripe
[resolved] So much potential! (5 posts)

    I love the plugin so far but there are definitely some features of Stripe that could be added! I would be willing to pay for a version with:

    - A field for the cardholders name that shows up in Stripe dashboard
    - A field for customer phone number
    - Customers/recurring payments*
    *When I look in the stripe dashboard > customers there is no information
    - Email notification of payment details

    Thanks so much for making this plugin!

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the feedback! Recurring payments are on the roadmap & e-mail is also a great idea, though I'll check with Stripe to see if they already have any of their own notifiers setup. Same goes for personal information in the dashboard, many WP installs don't have adequate security and stripe already captures that data on theirs, so I'm hesitant to pull in any personal information back into the WP database (except for the comments a donor/payer opts in for).

    Essentially, the idea of any API plug-in should be:

    - Faciliate functions/workflows with the API (single or recurring payments)
    - Enhance with any WP-centric features (like in this case, "Recent Donors/Payers")

    Thank you for your response! I have built a rather large form on your plugin visible here but I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind helping me!

    I am saving all the fields that are not in blue in a separate database (not wordpress). But when I use form action="insert.php" to inject the data into the database, the sale does not go through. Thus I can either have the sale go through, or have no database entry. Do you know a way to get both to work simultaneously?

    Here is my insert.php code for reference:

    $con = mysql_connect("localhost","HIDDEN","HIDDEN");
    if (!$con)
      die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
    mysql_select_db("HIDDEN", $con);
    $sql="INSERT INTO jimmy_tb (first_name, last_name, address_1, address_2, city, state, postal_code, phone, email, golfdinner, dinneronly, sponsorhole, donation, comment, totalpaid, foursome_1, foursome_2, foursome_3)
    if (!mysql_query($sql,$con))
      die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
    echo "Form successfully submitted!";

    I managed to solve the problem myself by inserting the php from the insert.php file into wp-stripe-functions.php near the end.

    Thanks again for this amazing plugin!
