Firstly, thank you for your purchase of the Stripe Payments Plugin.

This article will explain how to set up the plugin easily. So once you have downloaded the plugin, login to your wp-admin portal. You will need to make sure you have Mobile Events Manager 1.3.0 installed.

  2. Select “Upload Plugin” from the top of the main page
  3. Click “Choose File” and select the mem-stripe-payments.zip file you downloaded
  4. Click “Install Now”
  5. Once installation has finished, select “Activate Plugin”
  6. Once activation has completed, MEM Stripe Payments will be fully integrated with Mobile Events Manager

Configuring the Plugin

6. Here is where you enter your Stripe Publishable and Secret keys. The keyword here being secret. You can only view this key and copy it once. If you have deleted the Secret Key from the text box on MEM, then you will need to create a new secret key on Stripe.

See below on how to retrieve your keys from Stripe.

7.  You also have the ability to test the payments before you put this live. Please note: we cannot be held responsible for any loss of earnings due to the test mode being enabled.

Retrieving your Keys from Stripe

  • There are two types of Keys, the Publishable Key and the Secret Key.
  • They can be viewed by logging into your Stripe account, down the left hand side, click on Developers then clicking on API Keys.
  • It’s really important that you put the keys in otherwise you will get a “critical error” on the front end of your site.
  • If you put the live keys in the test text boxes and vice versa, the Stripe Payments will not work.
