How to Add a Price Field to a Stripe Payment Button

Variable Price is an add-on for the WP Stripe Checkout plugin that can be used to add a price field to your Stripe payment buttons. This lets buyers set the amount they will pay for your products. It can also be used for accepting Stripe donation payments.

Option 1

You can enable variable pricing in the product interface of the Stripe checkout plugin.

Once you have created a new product or edited an existing one with this option enabled, add the shortcode for it to a post/page.

[wp_stripe_checkout id="1"]

Replace the value of id with your product ID.

When the button for this product is rendered on the front end, a price input field will appear that will let buyers set the amount they want to pay.

The default label for the price field (Amount) can be customized in the add-on settings (Stripe Checkout > Variable Price).

Option 2

If you are using the “wp_stripe_checkout_session” shortcode in the Stripe Checkout plugin, you can change it to the following to enable variable pricing.

[wp_stripe_checkout_session name="My Product" price=""]

Leaving the price parameter empty implies that you wish to let buyers enter a custom amount for this item.

  2. Hi,

    I need to accept custom payments on my website, but can`t find variable pricing option in the product interface.
    Shortcode [wp_stripe_checkout_session name="My Product" price=""] is not working. I receive an error message “You need to provide a valid price for your item”.
    Can you help me with this problem, please?
    Thank you in advance!
