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.


  • The Stripe payment gateway settings screen used to configure the main Stripe gateway.
  • 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.


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.


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


Does this support recurring payments, like for subscriptions?


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.

I just wanted to say that in my simple LMS website, with one classroom that provides digital access to course materials, purchasing and sales have never been more streamlined. I do not use Woo Payments - I only use Stripe. I began using Total WordPress theme by WPExplorer, WooCommerce, and the Woo Stripe plugin two months ago and my sales have doubled. I had some issues, but discovered my problems were with some unused plugins from my previous setup and theme. I've used Stripe for nearly 8 years with my photography website so I find this plugin and processing to be the best affordable option to a small business. Frank B.thedronecoach.io

Doesn't work correctly for the last few months. Payments show as failed or just don't show as anything happened while Stripe confirms payment has actually been received. Thought my website was out of date. Updated WP, WC and all plugins to latest versions and still the same issue... Apparently many ppl are complaining about this plugin. Testing the other plugin now

You WILL lose money with chargebacks & stuff. They do not provide 3D secure to check credit cards, until after you have been "chargeback" by the company, to push you into paying extra for the 3D, then they will then check 10k credit cards on your website after you buy 3D plan, charging you $0.02 a piece. I recommend you go with a different company, that has been around longer, and didn't just shoot up into the ranks by scamming their own customers. PayPal actually has Braintree, and has been around, not needing to scam or charge extra for 3D secure. I don't see any difference from a racketeer, and you will probably be able to join a class action against this company. Note: There is no way to contact a human, from the backend dashboard, unless you "pay" for that also. lolol, but most likely still won't get contact support. Just go look at their BBB.org profile, 1.05/5 Stars, it's a straight scam to play people. They will allow people to buy many items from your store, and if one does chargeback, they will refund everyone, with lots of cases over $10k online. THINK TWICE, LOOK AT REVIEWS.

Easy to use and configure, it is a good option for sites that need simple solutions but unfortunately it is incomplete for more complex functions like Stripe Connect. And unfortunately Stripe gives a really bad technical support.
