Getting started

PeachPay makes connecting your Stripe account to WooCommerce effortless, allowing you to connect with just a few clicks. Whether you're already a Stripe user or need to apply for an account, our platform streamlines the setup process, saving you valuable time.

If you're switching from another plugin, rest easy. PeachPay ensures uninterrupted payouts, providing a hassle-free transition without disruptions. Payments and payouts will continue as normal.

1. Navigate to the Stripe tab of the Payments settings

2. Click Connect Stripe

3. The button will redirect to Stripe's website, prompting you to go through the Stripe connect account flow. Here you can apply for an account or connect an existing one.

4. Once you have connected your Stripe account, the website will redirect you back to PeachPay's settings dashboard, and you should see a prompt:

Test mode

If the "test mode" setting is enabled, the Stripe payment method options will only be visible to a logged-in WordPress admin. This setup allows you to test your Stripe integration without affecting live customers.

Test mode enables you to assess your integration without real charges or payments, providing a testing environment that mimics the creation of authentic objects, all without the potential impact on real transactions or the movement of actual funds. This allows you to see if all payment flows work on your store before you go live.

For additional insights into test mode, please refer to the Stripe test mode help documentation. To familiarize yourself with the credit card details required for test mode, explore the test card documentation.

Troubleshooting

If you go through the Stripe flow and are redirected back to the PeachPay settings, only to see that nothing is connected, please contact our support using the chat in the bottom right corner. This might happen when migrating between staging and live sites, and vice versa. Our team can help sort it out.
