Stripe is a simple way to accept payments online. With Stripe you can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards directly on your store. Stripe has no setup fees, no monthly fees, no hidden costs: you only get charged when you earn money! Earnings are transferred to your bank account 7 days after the completed transaction.
Does Stripe Support WooCommerce Subscriptions?
Stripe also supports the WooCommerce Subscriptions extension for re-using cards.
To charge recurring payments, Stripe integrates with the WooCommerce Subscriptions extension. When selling subscriptions with WooCommerce, the Stripe extension does not use Stripe’s Recurring Plans feature, instead, it manages the subscription entirely within WooCommerce. This is to give you complete control over the subscription and allow you to offer a more flexible recurring payment plan.
After a customer purchases a subscription in your WooCommerce store, you will see a charge for the initial amount appear in the Payments area of your Stripe dashboard. Payments will then also appear here for each recurring billing period of the subscription.
