You can use Stripe recurring/subscription payments with the Checkout – Stripe extension plugin. It is quick and easy!
First, start off by going to Checkout > Products in the Shopping Cart plugin and create a recurring product by setting “Checkout Type” to “Recurring Payment” and then choosing Stripe as the recurring payment method. Then fill in the price, interval, etc.
You don’t need to create the plans in your Stripe account. The Shopping Cart plugin will automatically create the Stripe plans for you and reuse them as possible.
You’ll notice once you select Stripe as the recurring payment method, it gives you instructions and a URL. Go to your Stripe dashboard and under Account Settings > Webhooks, add the URL as a webhook. This webhook is required in order for the plugin to be updated as the recurring/subscription payments are charged by Stripe accordingly.
That’s it, recurring payments with Stripe and the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin.
