Today we are releasing Stripe integration for WPAdverts. This is an integration which will work with the default Payments Module. If you are using WooCommerce Integration to accept payments then you already should be able to accept payments using credit cards via some third party WooCommerce Stripe plugins.

Click the WPAdverts Stripe Integration link to purchase the integration or read below if you want to find out more about this integration first.

Fast and Intuitive Credit Card Payments

If you are not familiar with Stripe payment gateway yet, you can read more about them on the official site https://stripe.com/

Stripe is a service which allows accepting secure credit card payments directly on your site. This means the user just enters a credit card information and gets automatically charged without ever leaving your site.

Take a look at the animation below to see how quickly and efficiently the integration works.

Adding a new credit card and making a payment.

For logged in users the credit card data is being saved on the Stripe server. When a user will post an additional Advert he will have an option to pay by just selecting previously saved credit card. If the card expired or is no longer valid for some reason the user will also have an option to delete the card.

Using previously saved credit card.

 

Rock Solid Credit Card Security

With the Stripe integration, all the credit card data is stored securely on the PCI Compliant Stripe servers.

You will never need to worry about being hacked or leaked credit cards. In case your website is compromised the hacker will be able to access the customer ID saved in your database only (which on its own is just a random string).

The credit card information is accessed only via the Stripe API which is secured with an SSL certificate. I am sure your customers will appreciate that you are handling their credit cards information safely.

BTW.

This is yet another item checked from our goals list for 2018, for this year there is only integration with Membership Plugins and Rating module left as far as big changes in WPAdverts are concerned.

  • Ahh you tease! I really hoped (and thought) this was going to be for accepting member-to-member transactions (it would complete the classifieds solution from start to finish)!

    A very nice feature though for those who don’t use WooCommerce. Nice work Greg! You’ve had a great year so far in the 2018 roadmap…keep it up

  • Oh, and I’ll keep hoping you do add that transactions between users, it’s the one thing I hate – users are leaving your site to complete a sale. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

    • Thanks, the Stripe integration cannot really support transactions between users (as far as i know) as in order to accept payments from a credit card a user needs to have a Merchant Account.

      Transactions directly between users are possible with PayPal or if the users will have some prepaid accounts, that is the user will first need to deposit some cash amount into his account and then he will pay to some other user account.

      This is a quite difficult feature to develop i have it on my todo list, but right now i am afraid i cannot tell when it will be ready.

      • Without highjacking the post as this feature is beyond the conversation. Take a look at WPAuctionSoftware.com (I have the plugin if you want to see the codebase)

        They attach a PayPal address to your profile, and after the sale the system initiates a PayPal Invoice to the ‘buyer’ once the auction finishes.

        This way, the buyer just clicks the PayPal link to pay the invoice.

        Not sure if you can do something like that, but just wanted to highlight it. I know it’s not on the roadmap right now 🙂
