Allow for additional payment methods via Stripe Checkout
marked this post as
When GiveWP 3.0 rolls out, this will be standard on all the new forms! You can even test that right now (please don't use it for live donations) on the new Beta plugin for the Visual Donation Form Builder: https://givewp.com/next-generation-donation-forms/
Ben Meredith: yes I noticed it's working already on the next gen beta! great!! for info, i can set various payment methods in Stripe now for GiveWP, but as soon as i switch to "testing" on the Stripe Dashboard, it still has the old message that "GIveWP has limited my payment options". On the live payments I can set all sorts of payment options now.
yes this would solve so many problems if GiveWP allowed the addition of any payment method by admins to Stripe Checkout. Many other feature requests are about ACH, IDEAL, recurring SEPA, etc. This would all be solved by this
Also, older feature request (link below) looks to be asking a similar thing as this feature request: https://feedback.givewp.com/feature-requests/p/direct-ach-payments-through-stripe-without-using-plaid?fbclid=IwAR1Hdxx0zNSncW6kIbsMruvOOFQHaQfdpBeTGQPKQfjjf0iulTI0Nhkl2w4
Stripe announced in May 2022 that they have integrated ACH into Stripe Checkout, from my understanding, this makes Plaid to be redundant, especially if the user experience is cleaner in the Stripe Checkout side.
Stripe Support relayed this to me:
To set up ACH payment method via API, when creating a new Checkout Session, you need to:
Add us_bank_account to the list of payment_method_types.
Make sure all your line_items use the usd currency.
Set the permissions parameter to include payment_method.
