WooCommerce: Multiple Stripe Accounts (Solved)

The WooCommerce plugin fully integrates with the WooCommerce Stripe Payment Gateway plugin, developed by Automattic itself. With this free plugin, Stripe payment gateway can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings and once your Stripe “Live Publishable Key” and “Live Secret Key” are set, your WooCommerce shop is ready to take credit card payments powered by Stripe.

Now, there is some documentation online which explains, with a little bit of code, how to switch Stripe account programmatically and conditionally i.e. for a given product ID or product category slug – same as what we’ve seen recently with PayPal Standard (here’s the tutorial for using different PayPal accounts inside a single WooCommerce installation). For example, you may want to use a Stripe account for digital sales and a different one for physical products.

Unlike PayPal Standard, however, online documentation and snippets are quite out of date and require, often, to create a custom Class which is always a difficult task in PHP programming. Thankfully, there are new WooCommerce Stripe hooks and therefore it’s possible to use different / multiple Stripe accounts in a single WooCommerce installation.

WooCommerce: Multiple PayPal Accounts (Solved)

The WooCommerce plugin comes with its own free version of PayPal Standard. PayPal can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings and once your PayPal email is entered your WooCommerce shop is ready to take PayPal payments.

Now, there is extensive documentation online which explains, with a little bit of code, how to switch PayPal account programmatically and conditionally i.e. for a given product ID or product category slug. For example, you may want to use a PayPal account for consulting services, another for online courses and another for physical products.

By adding this simple code and hooking into woocommerce_paypal_args is indeed possible to use different / multiple PayPal Standard accounts in a single WooCommerce installation.

However, there is an outstanding problem with “IPN Validation“: once you tell WooCommerce to use a different PayPal email account, the WooCommerce order is correctly placed, but its status goes “on hold” because IPN validation on the PayPal end fails (and that’s because you’re using a different PayPal account).

So, here’s the fully working version, included the IPN validation fix. Please read the disclaimer below and – only then – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Only Allow 1 Product in the Cart

Here’s how to limit your WooCommerce Cart to just one product at a time.

This simple PHP snippet can be used for many applications. For example, your store may only allow to buy one subscription at a time. On this same website, on the other hand, customers can only purchase one product at a time so it’s easier for me to manage invoicing and payments, given that I switch PayPal and Stripe accounts based on what’s inside the cart.

Here’s the quick fix – enjoy!
