Google Pay for Stripe

Thank you for purchasing our plugin!

If you haven't got it yet, please be sure to check it out on CodeCanyon. If you have however, let's get you started on accepting payments with Google Pay!

Installation

From the WordPress plugin installer, click the "Upload Plugin" button and, in the section that drops down afterwards, select woocommerce-googlepay-stripe.zip and click "Install Now".

Be sure to click "Activate Plugin" on the page that follows.

Configuration

To get the plugin up and running, head over to WooCoommerce > Settings > Payments > Google Pay for Stripe.

Here's a list of the available options:

  1. Enable/Disable: lets you switch the Google Pay payment method on and off using a checkbox.

  2. Title: controls the payment method name that your customers see on the checkout page. Defaults to "Google Pay".

  3. Description: this is the payment method description your customers will see if you choose to hide the "Buy with G Pay" button on your checkout page (option 7 below).

  4. Google Pay Merchant ID: holds your Google Pay merchant ID. Your merchant ID is required for processing live payments and is available after requesting production access from Google. However, it's not needed for making test payments.

  5. Your Store name: lets you set the name of your store as will be seen on customers' Google Pay transaction records.

  6. Accept more cards: at the time of writing, all Stripe customers can accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express credit/debit cards. If you are a US-based business, you can use this option to additionally accept JCB and Discover cards.

  7. Show Google Pay icon: lets you show / hide the "GPay" payment icon on your checkout page.

  8. Show Google Pay button: lets you show / hide the "Buy with G Pay" button on your checkout page.

  9. Google Pay button colour: Google Pay payment buttons are available in two colours: black and white. In order to adhere to Google Pay's brand guidelines, you should choose a colour that contrasts with your site's background. If your site's background colour is dark, select the "White" Google Pay button. If your site's background colour is light, use the "Black" Google Pay button.

  10. Allow Google addresses: lets you choose whether or not customers should be able to checkout using their saved addresses on Google, and skip re-entering this on your site.

  11. Test publishable key: holds your test Stripe publishable key, available on your Stripe dashboard. It is required for testing payments.

  12. Test secret key: holds your test Stripe secret key, available on your Stripe dashboard. It is required for testing payments and refunds.

  13. Live mode?: check this box to start receiving live payments.

  14. Live publishable key: holds your live Stripe secret key, available on your Stripe dashboard. It is required for accepting live payments.

  15. Live secret key: holds your live Stripe secret key, available on your Stripe dashboard. It is required for accepting live payments and performing refunds.

Testing

To test receiving payments with Google Pay, you need to ensure:

  • the plugin is activated (see image below);

  • your test Stripe publishable and secret keys are set;

  • the "Live mode?" checkbox is not checked.

Then, head over to your store, add some items to cart, and proceed to the checkout page. You will see Google Pay shown as one of the available payment options.

Click the "Buy with G Pay" button to pay.

Requesting Production Access

Before you can obtain your Google Pay Merchant ID and start accepting live payments with Google Pay, Google expects your site to meet certain functional and branding criteria. Relax. Using our plugin means your site already adheres to ALL the functional requirements and is easily configurable to meet the branding requirements. Additionally, Solidplugs will provide active technical support to our customers, before and during Google's approval process, to make sure you start getting paid as soon as possible.

Once you feel like you are ready to start accepting payments using Google Pay, head on over to the Google Pay production access request form.
