Recently, security has become an important feature and the use of Magesides Stripe Payments extension will ensure you are protected from credit card hacks. All data on the credit card is directly sent from your customers to stripe. The Magento server will not contain any processed or stored form of sensitive information such as credit card number, expiration date, and secure code. The stripe extension implements Stripe elements in all credit card fields, ensuring that no data passes to the server, making it free from compromise. Stripe Elements makes use of client-side tokenization, which is presently the most secure method to handle sensitive information. Tokenization is designed to work in such a way that each field of payment form is implemented as Iframe. Every Iframe field transfers the data through to the server and stripe generates and provides clients with a one-time token which is linked to all the card details. Making use of this token, Magento can perform a lot of operations using customer credit card without having its details.
Pay by credit/debit cards
- The stripe extension is compatible with almost every type of credit/debit card types such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club.
PCI compliance: Stripe Elements collects all credit card data for you
- Stripe elements collate all credit card data on your behalf.
- PCI is an information security standard which is utilized in a lot of organizations that make use of branched credit cards. Stripe is made up of the highest rate of PCI certification. Stripe acquires PCI compliance for all your payments through the implementation of Stripe client-side tokenization in Stripe Elements.
- This feature allows clients and customers to safeguard all credit card details for use in future transactions. As soon as a customer orders through the checkout page and fills in the credit card details, he/she may decide to safeguard such details for future use. Completion of the succeeding order will provide customers with the option of making use of the already saved credit card data without having to input them again.
Authorize or Authorize and Capture
- Two behaviors are available for payments and this must be set based on business processes. The authorize behavior is designed to help you authorize a specific amount and manually capture it by the creation of invoice whenever required. The authorization locks the order amount available in the customer's bank account until it is captured by the merchant. For instance, a transaction can be captured as soon as you transfer order items to a customer. The Authorize and capture action communicates to stripe to capture a transaction at the time the order is created. The transaction will transfer the amount of the order from the customer's bank account to merchants bank account.
- If a payment is authorized and not yet captured, merchants are able to cancel the transaction through the admin panel to ensure the transaction is released.
- Stripe is compatible with two-step card payment meaning you can authorize a charge, and then settle (or capture) it later. As soon as the charge is authorized, the funds are secured by the card issuer and the amount help on the card of the client for as long as seven days. If it is not settled for seven days, the authorization is canceled and the funds returned. By making use of the extension, you can charge for invoice total as a new transaction. It is only available for customers with a stored credit card and sufficient funds in the bank.
Partial order invoices
- Partial invoicing is only available if the process of authorizing payment is used. The administrator includes a few products from an order into the invoice. A total sum of the invoice is captured from the order transaction. Due to the fact that only one capture is available for a transaction, the remaining order amounts will be released. Subsequent invoices for similar orders are possible making use of a stored credit card.
Credit Card Verification (CCV)
- This feature helps to protect merchants from payments made via fake or invalid cards. Credit Card verification will cancel all payments when the CCV of a card is not successful or invalid. As soon as a customer adds some credit card details on the checkout page, the extension will indicate the type of card being used (MasterCard, Visa, American Express etc.).
Country Specific Credit Card Types
- An administrator is able to specify using the configuration panel, the different card types available for certain countries. For instance, you may decide to allow only American Express for the United States.
Multiple currencies support
- Stripe is designed with a nice feature which allows it to receive payments from different countries. Stripe collates different balances for a variety of currencies. If possible, stripe automatically transfers payouts to a bank account associated with each currency, helping to avoid exchange fees. Stripe payment extensions provide you with the option of choosing whether you want to process payments in the local currency or actual order currency.
- Instant purchase is a feature which allows the making of one-click purchases for clients who have a pre-selected default billing and shipping address and also a default stored card in the Magento vault. This feature is completely compatible by stripe payments extension.
Refund your invoices (Online Credit Memo)
- This extension is available only with online Credit Memo function which provides a refund for captured transaction amount to the customers.
Partial order refunds
- This feature is quite helpful as soon as a customer has completed an order and you don’t have all the products in the stock meaning you have to refund a part of a payment. However, it requires returns management.
The extension is built according to best Magento 2 practices by Magento 2 Certified Developer.
