As title says any one use stripe payment gateway on there website ?
Never heard of it - what is it?
I use it - and highly recommend it.
The downside is that you need and SSL cert for your domain,so it costs £50ish a year depending on which one you go for - but the system works very smoothly.
Thanks nat how do I set it up to take card payments from customers .
Isn't it like PayPal were you can add a pay now button and customer can add there customer number and payment amount ?
Stripe works a little differently - they don't offer any way to generate payment buttons - but instead rely on 3rd party addons.
The way I use it on my website is using the WooCommerce system (Free) which handles the financials & then added to that I have the "Stripe Payment Gateway plugin" ($79 I think) which processes the transactions. There is another plugin you'd probably need which allows the user to set their payment amount:Name your price - WooThemes
Cheers nat thought it was a bit like PayPal
Is there any other gateways like PayPal buttons as some customers may not like using PayPal ( not trust them) plus's any with lower fees than PayPal would be good.
Only need for accepting cards online
I really like GoCardless - it puts you in control & really helps cashflow if you get all your slow payers to sign up...
Yes have go card less already and have izettle for on the spot card payments but wanted some sort of web payment
Happy new year
Strip is a lot of hassle to setup - but I've tried a few & its the best one I've found personally - I use it on my own website.
What about these as they are free
