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.

This (paid version) plugin worked until Dropbox updated their API but I don't really know. The addon for encrypting downloads corrupts the file so it won't play on quicktime. After many multiple emails to HQ Tips and Tricks they are not responding. (see below) I am revising my review. 1. I was informed of my error in where I requested help and did not realize it takes 48 hours for a response from support. My prior experience of getting support resulted in immediate feedback so that is what I expected. 2. It is not working yet but I they are on it and hope to resolve the issue soon. I am not saying it is the plugin, it could be but I have no idea.

Ça a failli marcher...avec le tuto video! Et puis un écran apparait dans le tuto mais chez toi pas et c'est fini, t'es perdu ! En plus, dans la fenêtre de paiement qui s'ouvre pour les clients, c'est en anglais, avec des champs qui n'existe pas chez nous. assez pour jetez le trouble au client et le perdre. Dommage. faut que je trouve autre chose...

Work super fin, I highly recommande. Just wandering how to translate the content of the popup and edit the content of the checkout page ?

The free version had all the features I need to set up a couple of purchase buttons with custom text on my website. There is even enough documentation to add custom css to the checkout popup. I will definitely look here if I need more features.
