How Does Stripe Connect Affect Me?

WP Simple Pay supports Stripe Connect, an easier and more secure way of connecting your Stripe account to your website. Stripe Connect makes it very easy to connect your Stripe account and prevents issues that can arise when copying and pasting account details from Stripe into your WP Simple Pay settings page. With Stripe Connect, you’ll be ready to go with just a few clicks.

Don’t have a Stripe account yet? No problem. The Connect with Stripe button will walk you through the account creation process or you can sign up here. It only takes a few minutes. See Connecting your Stripe Account for more details.

If you already have a Stripe account and have already set up Stripe by copying and pasting your Stripe API keys into the settings page, you may see the following notice asking you to connect your Stripe account.

When you click the link, you’ll go to the WP Simple Pay settings page with the Stripe Setup tab pre-selected. From there, click the Connect with Stripe button to start the process.

If you’ve already set up your Stripe account in WP Simple Pay, you may have questions.

Does this change my account?
No. Nothing is changed. This just connects your WP Simple Pay installation with your Stripe account and automatically sets up WP Simple Pay with the API keys Stripe Connect gives it.

Do I lose active subscriptions?
No. You retain all your current customers, subscriptions, plans, etc. The only thing that changes is how WP Simple Pay communicates with your Stripe account.

Does it change the cost of my plan?
No. There are no changes in costs to you.

Do I pay anything for this?
No. There are no charges for using Stripe Connect.
