A Stripe Terminal WooCommerce plugin would benefit so many businesses, so why not create one?

Arcane Strategies has created a Stripe Terminal for WooCommerce plugin! This plugin is a gateway option for a Stripe Terminal WooCommerce store that allows in-store payments using a Stripe Terminal Verifone P400. This takes advantage of the Stripe API and WooCommerce plugins to provide the functionality necessary for communicating with the terminal reader and the WooCommerce store. We have been working with Stripe for our clients’ in-person payment needs for a few months now. You can see our first post about Stripe here.

Why Stripe? Our Stripe WooCommerce Plugin Explained Further…

Stripe provides an easy to use a payment gateway that addresses multiple aspects of accepting credit card (and other) payments online. They also offer fraud prevention benefits that are typically superior to other products. Unlike other payment gateways, Stripe allows seamless integration of their API on any website. This allows you to keep a certain look and feel during the payment processing. Stripe’s fraud prevention tools are far superior to others.

Stripe also has the advantage of easy signup and setup compared to setting up custom payment gateways through a traditional bank provider. Bank provided gateways often require multiple approvals and processes only to end up with worse than what Stripe offers.

Our plugin provides a seamless and easy way to integrate Stripe’s payment gateway to a website without necessarily relying on a third party during the checkout/payment flow. It also handles the security aspect of maintaining customer information.


A PRO-Version of this plugin is also in development, set for release in November of 2019. Some of its key features will include; 

  • Locations management
    • Multiple locations each maintaining multiple readers and cashier assignment.
  • Customer Data Storage
  • Supports Pre-Dipping cards for faster purchases
  • Subscription Purchases
  • 1 Hour Setup Consultation
