9) To configure your Stripe payment options and enter your API keys, click on Stripe Payments under the Registrations menu
Collect your API keys by logging in to Stripe and visiting the API key page. You can collect both “live” and “test” API keys by using the toggle button found on the left sidebar.
Once your API keys are entered and saved, the plugin will begin using Stripe to collect payments for events. Click on the Payments tab to enable test mode if you would like to test Stripe before going live.
9) Choose Your Checkout Type (version 1.3 and newer)
The plugin offers two choices for how charges are made for your events.
Charges are triggered by code on your site’s server. Payments are marked successful immediately. No further setup is needed.
Intents API (may be required if you accept payments from the European Union)
Intent to charge is triggered by code on your site’s server. Actual charge triggered by Stripe and then a notification is sent from Stripe to your site’s server to mark payments as complete.
Additional Setup for Intents API:
Note: Example uses the test API. Switch to the regular live API to collect actual payments
a) Copy “Your Site’s Webhook URL”
This is found on the “Stripe” tab for the Registrations for the Events Calendar settings page. You’ll also want to make sure you select “Intents API” as your checkout type.
Note: If you are migrating from the “Charges” API and are collecting live payments, do not change the checkout type setting until you have set up your webhook to prevent any interruptions
b) Create a New Webhook URL Record on Stripe.com
Log in to your Stripe account. From the dashboard, select “Developers”, then “Webhooks”, and then click the “Add Endpoint” button as highlighted below:
c) Paste Your Site’s Webhook URL and Select Events
After pasting your site’s unique webhook URL (copied in step “a”), configure your webhook to be used for two events “payment_intent.payment_failed” and “payment_intent.succeeded” using the dropdown menu. Click “Save”.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to turn off test mode in Stripe.com and complete the webhook set up steps again so that it will be enabled for both test payments and your live payments. If payments are not being marked complete then this may be the cause.
d) Copy Your Signing Secret
After saving your webhook, copy the signing secret found after revealing it by clicking the button to do so.
e) Save Your Signing Secret in WordPress
Go back to the Stripe settings page in WordPress and paste in the signing secret. Save your changes.
