Easy Digital Downloads Stripe Addon
Stripe Payment Gateway
Accept payments through the Stripe.com payment gateway.
Stripe is the premier option for online credit card processing; it’s also the most popular premium payment gateway for Easy Digital Downloads – and it’s our preferred option!
The Stripe Payment Gateway extension for Easy Digital Downloads allows store owners to accept credit card payments on their sites. What’s more – this extension is, hands down, the most feature-rich payment gateway integration available for Easy Digital Downloads. If you’re selling digital products on your website, there’s no better choice than Stripe!
Earn more revenue
Our extensive research has shown that Easy Digital Downloads stores using Stripe earn 47% more revenue on average than those using PayPal. Take advantage of powerful features such as subscriptions, on-site checkout, and saved cards to increase your conversions and make more money.
For any eCommerce site, the checkout page is the most important page on the entire site. Providing a simple, reliable, and fast way for buyers to give you money is critical. With Stripe, customers are never redirected elsewhere to complete their payment. All purchases are completed securely on your site.
Our experience, and the experience of many other online sellers, has been that acquiring new customers almost always costs significantly more than retaining past customers. Use Stripe along with our Recurring Payments extension to offer subscriptions, which can dramatically increase customer retention!
Configure your products so that customers are charged on a recurring schedule until they cancel – you can even offer a free trial before the subscription begins!
This is extremely powerful for anyone selling licenses for software, services, courses, all access passes, and more. Streamlined and fully integrated, with the Stripe Payment Gateway extension, there’s no need for customers to manually return and purchase again.
Saved credit cards
Make purchases on your site hassle-free by allowing customers to select previously used cards. Customers can securely save their credit cards through our Stripe integration, creating a seamless purchase experience when they return to your store.
Additionally, all customers can add, remove, and modify their saved cards by logging into their account on your site. This makes the purchase process faster and easier, saving customers time and making you more money. And to ensure that customer data remains protected at all times, Stripe securely stores and presents the information, so that no sensitive data is ever stored on your site.
The standard checkout experience with Easy Digital Downloads and Stripe is efficient and streamlined. However, in some cases it can be beneficial to simplify the buying process even further.
Enter Stripe Checkout. With this handy feature enabled, customers can complete a purchase without even having to go to a checkout page. They simply click on your Buy Now button and a small popup will appear, requesting their payment information. After submitting, successful purchasers will be redirected to the receipt page, delighted with the efficiency of your buying process.
If you need to collect and verify payment information from customers but wish to actually process the charge at a later time, this extension is the solution. Customers can complete a normal checkout process when purchasing your products, then you will be able to manually approve or decline the payments from your dashboard.
Refunds are never fun, but at least with Stripe they are easy. Instead of wasting time logging into your Stripe account to return funds to your customers, you can do it all with one click from your site’s dashboard. Edit any payment record, change the status to refunded, and Easy Digital Downloads will do the rest!
If your store isn’t working properly, you are losing money. For this reason, testing every aspect of your site, especially any eCommerce functionality, is critical. Fortunately testing with Stripe is as simple as it gets. Just activate test mode and you’re all set to begin simulating customer actions and troubleshooting issues without it affecting your reports.
We know how busy you are. You have better things to do with your time than spend it installing, configuring, and testing your eCommerce software. Fortunately, connecting your store to Stripe with this Easy Digital Downloads extension is straightforward and painless. Once the plugin is installed and activated, connecting to Stripe is as simple as clicking the “Connect with Stripe” button in the settings. Once that’s done, you’re ready to start accepting credit card payments!
Stripe is currently available in 32 countries with many more coming soon. For those operating in unsupported countries, the Stripe Atlas program is available to help establish a legal presence in the United States.
