Well, it’s finally happened. I’ve actually written a plugin that might be useful to others and I’ve set it up as a public plugin on the WordPress repo.
I’ve just finished working on a site that used WooCommerce and the Stripe payment Gateway. I’d noticed during testing that orders were given a little meta data by the Stripe Gateway; what the fee was and the remaining net income.
I mentioned this to my client who said “Damn, that’s useful information. Can you make it so I can see that data?”. At first I thought there would be a setting in Woo or the Gateway pages, I couldn’t find anything. Seems that they’ve added the meta data (simply called
Stripe Fee and
Net Revenue From Stripe) but not really done anything with it.
This is WordPress we’re talking about here - someone will have made a plugin to show this info… Right???
Wrong! I haven’t found anything yet, Even searching for the meta names just returned the source code from Woo. No body had made something to do it.
Never one to back down from a challenge, I got to work.
