The official Supported Payment Gateways page suggests Stripe can only be used in North America, but not in Europe:


I'm wondering if this page simply hasn't been updated since Stripe started supporting markets outside North America.

Can Stripe be successfully set up as a payment gateway with CartThrob for UK stores? And does it work with all the currencies supported by Stripe?

Yes Stripe has a UK version and it works just fine with Cartthrob, see https://stripe.com/gb

  • Thanks for your reply Bluedreamer. I understand Stripe supports the UK and many other locations, but do you know that CartThrob specifically supports using Stripe from the UK? The official CartThrob page above suggests otherwise, and I would think it's possible that CartThrob is hard-coded with US-only in mind (since Stripe used to be US-only). Have you successfully used the UK version of Stripe with CT?

  • As far as I'm aware, the actual integration is on the Stripe side and not on the EE side. Your API credentials will set settings. Commented Mar 18, 2014 at 12:20
  • I've set up a test site using Cartthrob with Stripe GB and it's taking the test payments okay. So assume will be fine for the real thing. What do you think?

  • Stripe works find with Carthrob, I'm currently building a UK EE+Cartthrob+Stripe site at the moment. As Steven said Stripe just does the payment processing behind the scenes, 'where' the processing takes place isn't really important. Commented Mar 19, 2014 at 13:09
