Connecting Stripe in Free Edition
To connect Stripe in our Free edition only takes a few steps. You can enable it via our wizard while setting up, or you can enable it via our WP EasyCart -> Settings -> Payment panel.
Here we enable Stripe in our 5 step Wizard:
Here we Enable Stripe in EasyCart: Go to WP EasyCart -> Settings -> Payment panel. Simply use the sliders to connect to Stripe Live or Stripe Sandbox.
Once you enable Stripe, you will be asked to log into stripe and choose which account on Stripe to connect with… that’s it! You can connect to the sandbox or the live mode via our Settings -> Payment panel.
Connecting Stripe in Pro & Premium
With WP EasyCart Professional & Premium licenses, you can connect to over 30+ different payment gateways.
Enable Stripe in EasyCart: WP EasyCart -> Settings -> Payments panel and you will see the following connector panel for Live Payments. You may connect with sandbox mode as well if you wish to enter Stripe testing mode.
Stripe will ask you to login, and pick which account to connect with, simply select your account and you are now connected.
Once connected, you should see the following screen. You can change currency and country for processing from this panel as well. It is important that you keep consistent currency and country settings with your stripe gateway and within easycart. Check the settings -> initial setup panel to make sure your default country and currency align with what you will be processing in here for stripe. You can usually only process in one currency, so it should all be consistent.
Note to Sandbox Users: Once you are connected and see this screen, you may click the ‘Switch to Sandbox Mode’ if you want to test through stripe and use Stripe test cards.
Adding your Webhook
A properly setup webhook with Stripe will allow their system to talk back to your EasyCart on subscriptions, refunds, and other order processes. Now more than ever it is critical to have a proper webhook setup with Stripe. You can find this webhook URL on your Settings -> Payment -> Stripe panel.

Enabling 3D Secure & SCA
With the latest Stripe API, you have the option to enable 3D secure and European Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) system for card approval. With this enabled, your payments will automatically detect and display the proper 2 part authentication needed during a payment.
To Enable 3D Secure on Stripe: Visit Stripe -> Settings -> Subscriptions and Emails (Stripe Apps Section) -> Manage payments that require 3D Secure
You will need to Enable the Customer Emails -> Send a Stripe-hosted link for cardholders to authenticate when required. This step is required in order to allow 3D secure to work with all areas of EasyCart and its subscription system with Stripe.
Stripe makes it easy to switch between testing mode and live mode, but there are important things to keep in mind. If you build customers, products, subscriptions, and other data in test mode, you may need to also make sure to build them in live mode. For the most part, testing is fairly seamless, switch EasyCart to Sandbox mode and use Stripe test cards to see it in action. Switch it back to live mode and it will all go live. Stripe also provides an easy switch on their interface to see live and test mode data and transactions.
To Enable EasyCart Sandbox Mode for Stripe: Go to WP EasyCart -> Settings -> Payments and make sure to ‘Switch to Sandbox Mode’
