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.

It doesnt work with apple pay, i have tried disable all the plugs except woocommerce and this one and nothing is happening

One setting changed, no one notified and for weeks one of my customers sites would not process orders because of a statement descriptor sufifix formatting issue. At least one customer they lost because of this.Hopefully i can convince them to migrate off of WC and WP forever, because this is what the WP community stands for, a monument to mediocrity.pathetic.

We lose between 0.5 and 1 second of loading time on all pages with Stripe extension activate (Perfmatters doesn't change anything). That is a lot. Take two identical sites. On one Stripe is activated, on the other Stripe is deactivated. Compare the loading times. You can disable all other extensions if you want, it doesn't change anything. Bad extension. It's a shame.

Don't bother with this plug-in, just get the Payment Plugins one. This one is a defective, run down version with terrible customer service, and an even worse updating plan. PS: If you're in Mexico and want to offer "Meses Sin Intereses" guess what: it's not an option with this one.

I prepare to transform a monster because I can't pay with Stripe, then I must create a ticket. Shameem guided me quickly and resolved my issue when I had a 400 error in Stripe. Thank you so much. By the way, I love this plugin now. ^.^.

It seems to be working OK for me. However, it would have been quite easy to miss some of the required setting during plugin setup. In particular, make sure you go to webhooks page in your Stripe website/dashboard and paste in your endpoint URL (shown by the plugin). And then you need to copy the Signing Secret for that webhook from the Stripe website/dashboard and paste it in the plugin settings.
