How to Improve Site Performance when using Stripe in WooCommerce

The WooCommerce Stripe Gateway is a widely used plugin for adding Stripe integration to your WooCommerce store.

A recent release in version 5.7.0 of the Stripe plugin would cause a number of Stripe-related assets requests and external Stripe requests to load on single product pages and cart pages on your site. This would cause product pages and the cart page of the site to be much slower due to the extra requests being loaded from Stripe on them.

The express checkout options can be controlled in the Stripe payment gateway from;

WooCommerce > Settings > Payments > Stripe

If you are using the current version of the WooCommerce Stripe Gateway plugin which at this time is version 5.8.1 then you will still need to use the code snippet to disable the Stripe scripts from loading on cart and product pages.

Code snippet to use

add_filter( 'wc_stripe_load_scripts_on_product_page_when_prbs_disabled', '__return_false' );
add_filter( 'wc_stripe_load_scripts_on_cart_page_when_prbs_disabled', '__return_false' );
