Common Challenges When Integrating Stripe and Webflow
Even though Stripe is seamlessly integrated with Webflow, some issues may occur.
- The integration between Webflow and Stripe lacks a test mode, which hinders the ability to conduct trial transactions using dummy credit card numbers provided by Stripe for testing purposes.
- Users connecting Stripe to Webflow's eCommerce platform do not receive onboarding assistance, a crucial step that can streamline the setup process and ensure a smooth integration experience.
- Other occasional issues may occur when trying to connect your Stripe account to Webflow, which may need you to contact customer support for assistance.
- You’ll need coding knowledge if you want to use Stripe beyond the simple checkout process when using Webflow.
How to Connect Stripe and Webflow
Connecting Stripe to Webflow isn’t a difficult task, but you’ll still need a Webflow expert if you want to ensure seamless integration and avoid possible pitfalls.
Technically speaking, there are two methods to do it that don’t require third-party apps, such as Zapier. One is super-easy, the other one — not so much.
Here’s the easy method.
- Sign up to Stripe
- Go to Webflow Designer → Settings → Payments → Connect Stripe
You can also do the same using Webflow Editor by enabling checkout from the Ecommerce settings and then connecting Stripe.
However, this process if fairly limited, and bigger websites often need additional capabilities from Stripe. In that case, you’ll need to use some custom code. Here’s how to do it:
- Sign up for Stripe and head to the developers section on the site.
- Go to API keys, where you’ll see your publishable key and secret key. If these are not visible, you’ll have to generate them. These will let your Webflow and Stripe accounts communicate securely.
- Log in to your Webflow and go to Settings → Custom Code. To use this feature, you’ll need a paid ecommerce plan, as adding custom code is not available for free users.
- Add custom code to configure Stripe and connect it to Webflow. This is the part where you’ll require a professional developer’s assistance if you want to get the most out of this integration.
You’ll need a paid ecommerce Webflow plan if you want to perform a Stripe Webflow integration.
