Stripe for WooCommerce offers a complete online-payments platform to help you grow your business. Millions of businesses around the world love using Stripe — and so do customers and developers.

Powerful payment options

Accept secure payments with credit cards, debit cards, and other local payment methods in 135+ currencies with simple, transparent pricing and no monthly fees. Offer instant checkout on your site with Apple Pay, Google Pay, and other popular mobile wallets.

Advanced fraud protection

Stripe uses advanced machine learning that trains across millions of global companies to distinguish fraudsters from customers. Algorithms adapt quickly to shifting fraud patterns and to your unique business.

An SCA-ready solution

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), a new requirement for online payments made by European customers, comes built-in. Reduce friction and increase trust while minimizing the impact on your conversion rate.

What customers say about Stripe

“Our store uses a custom-built theme using Stripe for payments and is connected via API to Mintsoft fulfillment software, which makes fulfilling orders an almost-automated process.
– Steven Dean / Lospalos Coconut Oil

Built for Businesses

Stripe creates the best user experience for internet businesses and their customers: It’s easy to activate, comes with no setup fees, no hidden costs, no monthly fees, and no contracts. It requires no additional extensions and lowers the cost of operations by an average of 24 percent. 

Increases your conversion rate. Customers stay on your store’s branded webpages during checkout, instead of going to a new payment website. 

Accelerates the growth potential for businesses of all sizes, and removes the need for security and coding expertise.

Protects your data—and your customers. Stripe uses separate infrastructure to store, decrypt, and transmit payment information. 

Instant Payouts. Eligible merchants can get immediate access to their funds to help smooth cash flow or cover unexpected expenses. 

Only pay for what you use

No setup, monthly, or hidden fees. Real-time fee reporting. 2.9% + 30c per successful card charge. Fast, predictable transfers: Once you’re set up, transfers arrive in your bank account on a 2-day rolling basis.

Expert help, when you need it

Stripe teams across nine locations and all timezones are here to support you with free 24×7 email, phone, and chat support – included with every Stripe account.

Wherever you want to take your business, Stripe can help you get there. Recurring billing, in-person payments, crowdfunding — Stripe’s seamless integration with your WooCommerce store can do it all.

Built for developers

Stripe is built with meticulously-designed APIs and provides extensive functionality. Easily customize your business with libraries in every language and real-time webhooks to take action on events programmatically. Consistent global account setup enables you to easily activate Stripe’s local payment processing resources. Spend less time on system maintenance and focus instead on what matters: the customer and product experience.

Step 1: Set up a WordPress website

We recommend creating and hosting your website on WordPress.com, where you’ll be guided through the setup process. You can also register a domain name here if you don’t already have one.

Alternatively, there are many hosting providers that support WordPress.

Step 2: Install WooCommerce

WooCommerce transforms your WordPress website into a powerful eCommerce store. Once your website is up and running, quickly install WooCommerce from within your WordPress dashboard.

Add functionality to your store with extensions, including Subscriptions, Bookings, Memberships, shipping solutions, and much more.

You’re now ready to start accepting payments with WooCommerce and Stripe!
