With the new Stripe Button widget you can integrate your Elementor website with your Stripe account, enabling you to sell a single item or several items, and accept payments seamlessly, without creating an entire online store.
To encourage future sales and increase brand identity, you can also redirect your shoppers to a custom Thank You page, built in Elementor after a successful purchase.
Create and connect your API key
Creating an API Key
In order for your Stripe Button to function properly, you must first create API keys from your Stripe dashboard. For further documentation, click here.
- Click the button to create a new Secret Key
- Give your key a unique name and click the create button
- Click on the region with the key code, it will automatically copy the code. This will be entered in your Live Secret Key field in the Elementor settings
- Repeat this process for a Test Key in order to use sandbox functions
Add the API Keys to Elementor
You may then add these keys to the Elementor API integrations page. This may be found by navigating to Elementor > Settings > Integrations. After entering each, click the Validate button to make sure it connects properly. Once finished, click the blue Save Changes button.
Payments and Pricing
In this section, you will assign the name of your product or service, the currency, and its price options. Taxes and shipping charges may also be entered.
Setting a Tax Rate
Taxes must be first set up from your Stripe account dashboard in order to show up in the dropdown menu options.
- From your Stripe account navigate to -> Products -> Tax rates.
- Create a new tax rate – we recommend including a description too.
- Return to the editor, save your changes, and refresh the page.
- The Tax rates you created will appear under the Tax rate dropdown.
In the Button settings options, you may enter the text you wish to display by entering it in the field or use the dynamic tags option. The alignment of the button may be set to left, center, right or justified by clicking on the appropriate icon.
If you wish, an icon may be displayed before or after the text. You may upload an SVG icon or choose one from the font-awesome library. The spacing may be adjusted by using the icon spacing slider or entering a value in the field.
If you wish to assign the button an ID for CSS or tracking purposes, it may be entered into the field.
Note: Please make sure the ID is unique and not used elsewhere on the page this form is displayed. This field allows <code>A-z 0-9</code> & underscore chars without spaces.
To redirect to a dedicated page upon purchase completion, choose a page from the list, or insert the appropriate URL in the Stripe Button widget’s Additional Options
Note: When inserting a URL, you should include the http:// or https:// of the URL for the redirect to work.
Using the toggle controls, you may choose to do the following:
- Enable test environment (allows you to test a button without actual charges occurring)
- Open the Stripe payment window in a new tab rather than a modal
- Allow custom error messages (see below)
Testing Your Settings
Test your Stripe Button’s set up by using Stripe test mode:
- Make sure you insert your Stripe Test Secret key in the Elementor Integrations area.
- Turn on the ‘Stripe test environment’ toggle under the Additional Settings section in the Content tab of the widget
- Please note that Tax Rates for Stripe Test mode is created separately and will appear only if a valid Test Secret key was inserted and the ‘Stripe test environment’ toggle is switched to “on”.
- Once all the checkout settings associated with the button have been set up, when clicking the Stripe button on the site’s preview mode, it should redirect to Stripe’s mock Checkout page. In this page, you can insert mock payment details, shipping and billing details. Then, upon success you will be redirected to the page you defined.
Note: Learn more about stripe testing methods here.
In case of an error when shoppers try to make a purchase, you can customize the error message by switching on the Custom Error Message toggle, and inserting the message you’d like to display.
