WP Cashier utilizes the Stripe API to setup subscriptions in WordPress, and also provides your users with a link to their Stripe Billing Portal, which you can brand to your business identity. For end users it goes like this; 1 > Create an account - Cashier uses ajax to dynamically check if username and email are available. Users will appreciate the time saved. 2 > Enter Payment Method - Cashier uses Stripe Elements for the payment form so you can customize it to match your sites design. 3 > Anytime user logs into your site they can click a link to go to their Stripe Billing Portal. Under the hood it goes like this; 1 > When user creates account on your WordPress site, Cashier calls the Stripe API to create a Stripe Customer. The Stripe Customer ID is stored as user meta data. Cashier creates and applies a custom WordPress role to the new user, called Customer. You may change that to any role. 2 > When user adds payment method Cashier stores payment method on Stripe, and also stores payment method as user meta data ( in case you need it for special charges later ). Stripe Subscription is also created for user at this time. 3 > When user logs into your site, a unique and secure URL is created so they can access their Stripe Billing Portal. At the billing portal they can add/remove payment method, upgrade/downgrade/cancel subscription, and see billing history.
