Recently Stripe reached out for a meeting to sit down and talk about Stripe Identity, how users are using the plugin, and the feedback I’ve heard. Following a great conversation with their Identity Engineer, it was asked to update the plugin to the newer stripe version of identity to v5.
I’ve also become a Stripe Partner , so if you’re someone who is curious and looks at the ‘plugin code’, you’ll see a ‘user-agent’ in the header of the api calls. This is simply for tracking purposes for Stripe, and doesn’t collect any personal data.
Stripe recommends using webhooks to watch for the status of the verification, as the verification process for documents can take anywhere between 1-3 minutes. More info here on that.
If you’ve used the previous plugin in the past, and have feedback, please reach out! Feedback on this new one is also appreciated.
Please note: the old plugin has been renamed with “deprecated” in the title. This will allow users who have the previous plugin to migrate to the new one, without interrupting their apps by just deleting the plugin.
