Marketplace Stripe Gateway

Brief Illustration

Stripe Payment has now been incorporated in the WC Marketplace plugin itself and Marketplace Stripe Gateway plugin is now deprecated!

Stripe is a simple way to accept payment online and a must have payment solution for your online commerce.

Let’s say, your customer visits your online clothing sites, it’s all new to him/her and he/she doesn’t have an account with PayPal. With Stripe, the customer can pay through Credit Card. When a customer pays for an order, they are set up in Stripe as a customer. If they create another order, they can checkout using the same card. A massive timesaver for returning customers and the best part about it? It’s free. Stripe has no setup fees, no monthly fees, no hidden cost, you will only get charged when you earn money.

When you accept credit card directly from the customer, you don’t have to pay additional transaction charge to a third party payment gateway.

  1. If you haven’t activated Stripe from WCMp Setup Wizard, check the box against Stripe Connect in Allowed Payment methods, under How/When to Pay section in WCMp Payment Settings. Once you enable Stripe and save the options, you’ll see the Stripe Gateway tab getting added to the dedicated payment list tab.

WCMp Stripe Configuration (By the Vendor)

After doing so, click on the Connect with Stripe button, this will connect the vendor’s account with the admin’s.Reference 5: Stripe Configuration
