Q1 Can a default country be set for the billing and shipping addresses?
Answer 1: The country is auto-detected in the stripe checkout popup (it is suppose to pick the country of the user checking out): You can read more about it from the following URL setting-default-address-in-billing-address/.
Q2 Can products be sorted in order or alphabetically?
Answer 1: You can read the following answer provided by (@alexanderfoxc) in the following support thread.
Q3 What is the minimum amount when setting up a donation button?
Answer 1: Please check the following documentation. Stripe does not allow a minimum amount to be lower than what the charging fees are for the currency used.
Q4 I want to customize the dialog box that pops up?
Answer 1: Payment popup design is controlled by Stripe and it cannot be changed, unfortunately. You can read more about it in the following support thread.
Q5 Is it possible to import invoices from stripe account into your plugin?
Answer 1: No, You can read more about it in the following support thread.
Q6 Is it possible to change the text of the ZIP code field on the payment page to ask for a “Postcode”?
Answer 1: Stripe should handle it automatically, based on your customer’s location. One of the developers comes from Europe and it shows “Postcode” for him when he tested this. You can read more about it in the following support thread.
Q1 There is no pop-up to enter payments details, how do I fix this issue?
Answer 1: This is usually caused by the theme not coded correctly. To fix this issue you could add the following parameter compact_mode=”1″.
[asp_product id="178" compact_mode="1"]
You can also troubleshoot the theme in question. You can read more about both solutions above in the following support thread.
Q2 Currently I have the plugin set on test. The transactions stall with the following error:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)
[Error] Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 () (verifications, line 0)
Answer 1: In this instance the solution was provided by someone in the support forum. My linux serer runs CPanel. When I was upgrading the server to a newer PHP version using EasyApache, I forgot to enable/ configure curl. You can read more about it in the following support thread.
That is all you need to do to add a new product to your shopping cart.
I will be updating this post from time to time. So keep coming back for more.
