Testing stripe on staging site set up as subdomain

We are trying to set up EE on our client site. We have created a subdomain of the main site & have installed EE. As per EE instruction, we have not linked the support license to this site. I would like to test the stripe integration but I cannot seem to connect stripe to the staging site. It keeps bringing up the main site to integrate. I have tried changing the business details in Stripe to show the staging website but it keeps reverting back to the main site. How can I resolve this?

Hi,

May I ask can you clarify something? What exactly do you mean by “It keeps bringing up the main site to integrate.”?

It’s not necessarily because of the URL or even an incorrect URL (was it literally domainname.com that showed up in the modal though?) There could have been a JavaScript error on the page or a security measure that was tripped when the connection was attempted.

Can you try the connection while all plugins are deactivated besides Event Espresso 4 and Stripe?

Thanks, I’ve tried that but I’m still getting the same thing. It is http://www.domainname.com

Since that goes to a splash page, that might be preventing the connection. What you could do is bypass using Stripe Connect and instead input the API keys directly into the Event Espresso > Payment Methods > Stripe settings. The API key fields are hidden by default, but you can make them visible by adding this code to your site:

add_filter('FHEE__EE_PMT_Stripe_Onsite__generate_new_settings_form__hide_key_fields', '__return_false');

You can add the above to a functions plugin, then activate the plugin.

Thank you – that’s worked!

I spoke too soon. I’m now getting the following error…
Stripe Checkout can’t communicate with our payment processor because the API key is invalid. Please contact the website owner or support@stripe.com.

The API keys are for the test data
