What customers say about Stripe
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.
Rich documentation and client libraries speed up the creation of custom integrations — up to 59 percent faster* than other methods!

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!
