Stripe

What does this add-on do?

This add-on will let you use the Stripe payment gateway to accept credit card payments from your clients. Your clients will not need a Stripe account or anything other than a credit card to pay you.

Get a Stripe account

Before you can use this add-on you will need to create a Stripe account.

Fees

Stripe charges a small fee per transaction.

Note: Rocket Apps is not involved in any transaction and consequently does not receive any fees or payment when using officially sanctioned add-ons.

How do I activate the add-on?

Activate the add-on like you would any other WordPress plugin. Go to Plugins -> Installed Plugins -> Invoice Rocket Stripe and hit Activate.

Once the add-on has been activated you will see a new option for Stripe in Invoice Rocket settings under the Payment Types heading.

How do I configure this add-on?

Before you can start accepting credit card payments through Stripe you will be required to:

  • Go to Invoice Rocket Settings
  • Click on Payment Types
  • Tick the Stripe checkbox
  • Enter your Stripe API keys
  • Hit the Save Settings button

What happened to the Bitcoin payment option?

As of April 23, 2018 Stripe officially dropped support for Bitcoin transactions. Consequently the option to accept Bitcoin as payment has been removed from the Invoice Rocket Stripe add-on.

How do my clients pay an invoice?

When Stripe has been set up correctly, invoices sent to your clients will have a button in the right pane to pay by Credit Card. When they hit that button they will be presented with a modal to enter their credit card details.

Stripe modal

Test mode

If you would like to run the Stripe extension in test mode, simply enable the option in Invoice Rocket settings -> Payments Types -> Stripe.

While enabled, a message will appear at the top of all pages on the Invoice Rocket front-end reminding you that you are currently in test mode. Real payments will not work while in test mode.

Stripe has several different test credit card credentials you can use for testing purposes. Any test transactions you complete will show up in your Stripe dashboard when you switch over to Test Data.
