Setting up Stripe

This article relates to the Stripe add-on

Learn how to get your Stripe API keys over to Sunshine to begin accepting credit cards on your website. Don’t forget, you will also need an SSL certificate as well.

Step 1

Generate your Stripe API keys (or from www.stripe.com, login and go to Your Account > Account Settings > API Keys)

Step 2

Copy and paste all 4 keys into your Sunshine settings in WordPress (Sunshine > Settings > Payment Methods > Stripe)

Step 3

If you have your SSL installed, make sure to check the “Force HTTPS” option in the Payment Methods settings.

Step 4

Check the “Test Mode” option if you want to make test transactions but not actually charge the card on file. To make tests, use the card number 4242424242424242, CVV 123 and any valid expiration date. Uncheck “Test Mode” to start accepting real payments.

You MUST install an SSL certificate in order to accept payments using Stripe otherwise your orders are not secure. We cannot emphasize this enough.
