We’re excited to announce that the Stripe payment gateway is now available to all Easy Digital Downloads users!
Along with taking PayPal payments, you can now accept credit card payments through Stripe using the free version of Easy Digital Downloads. No extensions required.
Just a few of the benefits you get by enabling Stripe on your EDD store:
- Accept credit card payments only (through Stripe) or give your customers both PayPal and Stripe options.
- Keep your customers on your site’s checkout page instead of having them be redirected elsewhere to complete their payment.
- Enable payment options for Apple Pay and Google Pay making your checkout even more convenient for your customers.
- Take advantage of Stripe’s best-in-class security, user experience, and easy setup process.
Ready to get started using Stripe with EDD? Just update EDD to the latest version (2.10 or later), go to Downloads > Settings > Payment Gateways > Stripe, then click the Connect with Stripe button.
If you have an existing Stripe account, you can simply connect it here.
If you’re new to Stripe you’ll be prompted to create a free Stripe account at this step, which only takes a few minutes.
As we’re committed to being transparent about the details, please note that there will be an additional 3% fee per transaction processed through Stripe when using the free version of Easy Digital Downloads.
If you do not want the added 3% fee, you can purchase an Extended (or higher) Pass.
The Stripe Pro extension also includes the ability to accept pre-approved payments, whereas the free version does not.
Apple Pay and Google Pay support
Along with introducing Stripe in this release, Easy Digital Downloads now includes the ability to accept payments via Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Microsoft Pay. These payment methods allow your customers to check out via Touch ID, Face ID, and with payment cards saved to their digital wallets.
