Download and Latest updates – Stripe Prestashop Module
Updated – The module was removed because the contract with Stripe has expired, scroll to the bottom for more info.
I recommended Stripe to a client a mere month ago, safe in the knowledge that adding Stripe would be easy. There’s am official module available for free, it just needs installing an setting up, no problem.
But this weekend, I wander over to the Prestashop website, and absolutely no sign of the module, anywhere. Did I dream it? I searched Google, found many a reference to the module in the forums, but all links just went to the Prestashop Addons homepage. Maybe it was a free module that someone released, but has since removed? I then found a interesting post, someone said they had Stripe in an earlier version of Prestashop, but not the latest. It most have been included in core Prestashop as a ‘partner module’.
Happily, Prestashop use Github to store their code. We can look at the commit history to see what happened.
That is, on the 27/12/13 the Stripe module was removed from the ‘Partner Modules’ – The modules that are already there on a Prestashop install.
So.. Why was Stripe removed from Prestashop? The commit message gives no clues. The module doesn’t appear on their site anywhere else, and there has been no official announcement, even the forum moderators are confused.
The industry partners page (http://www.prestashop.com/en/industry-partners/payment/stripe) has been removed, redirected to their Payments page. – It seems PayPal who were a long time partner has also been removed. Have these contracts expired?
As it was on Git, I simply had to go back another commit to find the module, on version 0.9.7. I have added this to GitHub repository here – https://github.com/franksmule/prestashop-stripejs, and made an easy to use download link here -> Download Prestashop Stripe Module 0.9.7
I have checked the license, and I am allowed to redistribute this code under the Academic Free License.
I have asked on the Prestashop forums, why the module has been removed.
Thanks to Xavier for the response (Below, in comments). As he confirms, that contracts have not been renewed, so please enjoy the module above.
