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.

As is, this is a great little plugin for simple online sales using STRIPE gateway. We struck a small glitch on our second use of this plugin. The response was speedy and fixed the issue quickly. Go guys.
If you want something lightweight to take Stripe payments, this is fantastic. You can create products, but you don't have to. And you can set up products in difference currencies, which a lot of solutions don't allow. I had a couple of questions for the developer, and they were handled promptly and with clarity.
does not integrate with woocommerce. The core team got rude, so I add more details on my response to them (you, user of plugins, can check on this thread)
