With Stripe, your visitor can pay instantly using his credit card on one of the most secure payment platforms.

The plugin works the way that it displays a form within your web site when the attendee clicks on the Pay button in the booking form. She/he must then enter the credit card details and after the send button is clicked an ajax request is done to the Stripe server without touching your web server. This ensures that you don't have to be PCI compliant and not to deal with the credit card information. All is handled by stripe itself.

Stripe also supports strong user authentication (SCA). After submitting the credit card information an additional step needs to be done to authenticate against the bank to protect from fraud. This function is called 3d secure and is fully supported in DPCalendar.

Testing mode

To use Stripe in testing mode, you have to change it into testing mode by toggle the switcher to "Viewing test data". Then copy the Test keys to the plugin instead of the Live ones. To test different scenarios, use the testing credit card numbers from this page

Basically you can use the card number 4242 4242 4242 4242 for none authenticated payments and 4000 0027 6000 3184 for strong authentication to test 3D Secure. As month and year just put anything in the future and as CVC any numbers you want.
