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 page used to configure the plugin.
  • Offer a range of payment options such as local methods and express checkouts.
  • Allow customers to save payment methods and add new ones for their future purchases.
  • Apple Pay and other express methods can be added to product pages, cart, and 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.

Rather than work with a theme and do proper testing to figure out a bug caused by their new stripe checkout experience they just keep blaming the theme creator.Multiple times I pointed out I contacted the theme creator and yet they always kept sending me away. Even after the theme creator highlighted to them that their latest version is loading script that hides the coupon field unless counter acted through CSS. not ideal at all

We recently activated Link in the payment methods options in the WooCommerce Stripe Gateway plugin. We had 3 customers the were charged multiple times for one subscription. The first one twice, the second one 5 times and the third one 7 times. Customers were promptly refunded by us but we are sucking up Stripe charges. We had no issues of multiple charges in two years of activity, only in the last few days when we activated Link, as all 3 customers used it. We have now de-activated Link and are waiting for a reply from WooCommerce but in the meantime I gave it a one star review…

Hi, For version 8.3.1, you claim to have a fix which – “Prevents orders purchased using a 3DS card being stuck as “pending payment” for stores with the Legacy Checkout Experience setting enabled.” No only does this fix not work, it even seems to have made things worse. Please resolve this issue asap as it’s costing me a lot of sales.

This used to be a good and reliable plugin – but not anymore. Just like the official PayPal plugin this Stripe plugin is now causing issues. Since beginning of May, latest updates are causing numerous errors and crashing our site. Had to use recovery mode and deactivated plugin to get site back. After testing and disabling plugins and themes, turned out it was Stripe’s latest updates. We will look at another Stripe plugin, and stop using any official WooCommerce plugins (paid or free) at this point.
