Accept 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.

Great plugin, fast support. I'm impressed with the features: donation button, individaul page settings to override global settings.
With payments, stuff needs to work 100% of the time. For me, this plugin would sometimes work and sometimes not. Half the time the thank you page after checkout would load and half the time it would error out (even if the payment succeeded). Probably some sort of incompatibility with another plugin, but when it comes to payments, I can't trust this plugin
After spending time setting up my account, it was working until suddenly got disabled for no reason, then one of their support agents emailed apologizing as it was a mistake on their end, and went ahead and re-enabled it. Shortly after, they re-disabled it again claiming that my account is risky and they don't have the support for disputes! Which is very untrue as I have refund policy and terms of service pages, no other plugin claimed what they're saying, they never answered my inquiries. From agent's first email, it seems that they're having many security issues with unauthorized charges which means their system is insecure and unreliable. Very unprofessional support service.
Stripe is really helpful when it comes to accepting donations. Their uptime is awesome.
