Why do you need a WordPress Stripe payments plugin?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you have the time and know how to write advanced code?
- Do you want to manually connect APIs so the two apps can communicate?
- Is your head starting to hurt?!
The fact is that setting up Stripe and WordPress from scratch is a challenging and time-consuming task. It’s not impossible, but it takes a seasoned developer many hours.
That’s why the Formidable Stripe WordPress plugin is here to rescue you.
Why reinvent the wheel every time you want to create a site to sell something online? Now everybody can build an eCommerce website fast!
And if you are a busy developer, you can white-label our solution — don’t worry, we won’t tell 🤐
What does the Formidable Stripe plugin do?
If you are building an eCommerce site in WordPress, here’s what you need:
- A form builder to create payment forms
- A connection to a payment processor (Stripe)
- Access to several popular payment methods (more on this in a bit ?)
- Conditional automation to trigger eCommerce events (autoresponder emails, for example)
If you can handle the above, you can start accepting payments on your site.
Good news! The Formidable Stripe payments plugin for WordPress can handle all that.
Sure, other options exist to sell products or services on your site. A plugin like Easy Digital Downloads can work. You can also use the WooCommerce Stripe payment gateway built into WooCommerce. And there are dedicated plugins for WordPress payments, like WP Simple Pay Pro.
So why use Formidable, then? Two words: Flexibility & Simplicity.
With the plugins above, there are some major limitations. Unless you are only selling digital downloads, you’ll need more features. For example, changing your settings would be nice if you’re accepting donations.
And with WooCommerce, you may pay double for the same features!
If you want more for less, Formidable Forms is here for you!
And that’s not even the end of the goodies!
You can make checkout even easier for your customers with Link by Stripe.
Link by Stripe is a simple method for customers to check out securely and quickly.
That means it will be easier for customers to return and make repeat purchases.
All they’ll need to do is enter their email — that’s it!
What payment methods can I use with Formidable Forms?
This is the wonderful thing about Formidable Stripe.
You’re not limited to one or two payment types from all the Stripe options. Nor are you limited to only accepting credit card payments!
If you’re using a payment method on Stripe, chances are you can use it with Formidable, too!
Here are a few of the top methods:
- Debit/credit cards
- Link by Stripe
- Apple Pay
- Cash App
- Google Pay
- WeChat Pay
- Bank redirect
- Buy now, Pay later
- Direct debit
- Bacs direct debit
- BECS debit
Whew! That’s a lot, right? It’s so many we wrote an entire blog post to show you how to add more Stripe payment options to your site.
But now they’re simpler than ever to use with your payment forms.
Oh, speaking of, let’s show you how to use Stripe payments.
