Why Choose Stripe Payment for WordPress?

  • No hidden cost: Unlike PayPal, Stripe doesn’t charge you any hidden fees.
  • Better conversion: During checkout customers stay in your store instead of being redirected to an external website. This has proven to lead to higher conversion rates.

1. WPForms


WPForms is the best WordPress form plugin on the market. It lets you easily build any types of WordPress forms, including a donation form, order form, contact form, and so on.

To collect payments with WPForms, all you have to do is create a payment form on your site and connect it with your Stripe account. You can easily create an order form for selling digital downloads or donation form for your non-profit organization without having to hire a developer.

With WPForms, building an online form is a breeze thanks to its powerful drag and drop builder. The plugin also comes with a PayPal addon for collecting payments. You can even allow your users to choose to pay through either PayPal or Stripe from a single form.

Combined with its smart conditional logic, you can show or hide fields based on user selection. Below are a few ways you can use smart conditional logic with your payment forms:

  • Upsell in your order form: Show an HTML Block with an exclusive offer only if the user purchases the highest price option.
  • For consultants and agencies: Show your clients the next question only if their budget is higher than X amount.
  • For collecting donations: You can provide 2 different payment options to your users: PayPal and Stripe. You can show the credit card fields only if the user chooses the Stripe option for payment.

Easy Digital Downloads is one of the best ways to sell digital goods with WordPress. While WooCommerce also lets you sell digital goods on your online store, the downside is that it comes with tons of functionalities out of the box, which you’ll never need for running an exclusively digital goods storefront (such as shipping options).

Easy Digital Downloads comes with three gateways built in, PayPal Standard, Amazon Payments, and Test Payment. To enable Stripe payment on your digital store, you’ll have to install the Stripe extension. The Stripe payment gateway extension costs $89 for a single site license, $129 for up to 5 sites and $209 for unlimited websites license.
