The Stripe plugin for WooCommerce allows you to accept payments directly on your store for web and mobile. With Stripe, customers stay on your store during checkout instead of being redirected to an externally hosted checkout page, which has been proven to lead to higher conversion rates.
Stripe is a simple way to accept payments online. Stripe has no setup fees, no monthly fees, and no hidden costs. Hundreds of thousands of businesses—ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies—rely on Stripe’s software tools to securely accept payments and expand globally.
Stripe is available to businesses in 40+ countries. With Stripe, you can accept all major debit and credit cards from customers in every country in 135+ currencies, as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and other local payment methods, such as Alipay, iDeal or SEPA Direct Debit.

Local payment methods to reach customers everywhere
Customer preferences at the time of checkout vary drastically and supporting local payment methods can significantly increase the likelihood of conversion. With Stripe, payment methods can be easily activated from your Stripe Dashboard, no secondary contracts or additional plugins necessary. Once you’ve activated a payment method from your Stripe Dashboard, update your WooCommerce Checkout settings to list the payment method on your checkout page.
Payments made with any payment method on Stripe, including cards, will show up in your Stripe Dashboard, which makes reporting and unified payouts easy. Check out Stripe’s guide to payment methods to discover and select the right payment methods for your customers.
