Like WP Travel Standard PayPal and Express Checkout, Stripe checkout is also an amazing addition to the WP Travel Plugin. Stripe Checkout creates any type of payments flow and enables you to accept payments in minutes.
So undoubtedly Stripe Checkout will take the WP travel plugin to whole new level.
To enable the booking with payment options at the front end, at first you have to enable the option “Stripe Checkout” by going to Admin panel > Trips > Settings > Payments.
Under this option, there are two modes of booking.
Full Payment: If you desire to go with Full payment then you can simply choose the option “Full Payment” and click on booking button. Clicking on booking button will lead you to PayPal home page. After making the required payment you can return to merchant and if you want, you can even make the booking further.
Partial Payment: If you desire to go with partial payment then you can simply choose the option “Partial Payment” and click on booking button.
Stripe Checkout collects your customers’ payment information easily and securely on web or mobile.
To use the Stripe Checkout option you have to follow below-given steps:
Workflow of Stipe Checkout:
When a user clicks the Book and Pay button, your app sets up the payment and begins the checkout in a popup window.
Stripe takes those details, encrypts the data and pushes them on the Stripe server, makes sure the data doesn’t hit the server, does the basic validation (such as invalid expiry date or invalid credit card number etc), creates a token representing the credit card info and posts the token to your server.
The User can review and authorizes the payment.
PayPal returns control to your site to finalize the payment. The site then shows the payment details as given in the screenshot.
3.Checkout with the version greater than 1.0.7 (SCA Compatibility)
Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), a new rule coming into effect on September 14, 2019 as part of PSD2 regulation in Europe, will require changes to how your European customers authenticate online payments.
So WP Travel Strip Checkout is released with the stripe integration with the SCA.
There is not much difference in the setting. The payment processing using the strip checkout after the update is mentioned below:
From this version, you need to directly add the card no in the checkout page.
After the addition of the card no. and clicking on the “Book and Pay” button, a popup button will appear in the screen for the authentication along with the payment amount.
Clicking on the “Complete Authentication” button will complete your payment process.
