Integrating Stripe with woocommerce

Out of all the standard payment processors for WordPress and Woocommerce Stripe is our favourite. This is because it is easy and simple to use and the fees are lower than that of Paypal. Years ago Paypal was dominant but in recent times this grip on ecommerce payments has slipped and made way for more efficient and intuitive companies. This guide is aimed at clients working with WPDesigns and therefore much of the work that is required to setup and configure Woocommerce and Stripe in the WordPress dashboard has been done by us. This guide is still applicable to those looking on how to integrate Stripe into their site. If you need help don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Stripe API Keys

If you don’t already have a Stripe account you can create one here.

Once you have your account set up and registered then you can click this “Stripe API keys” and it will bring you to the API page

  • Login to your account
  • Click this link “Stripe API keys
  • Click on Create Secret Key – If you cannot see this option make sure “View Test Data” is toggled off and you are viewing the live keys. Alternatively if the test keys are needed make sure “View Test Data” is left on.
