Step 1 – Navigate to Dashboard > WooCommerce > Settings > Payments. Find the “Stripe Card Payments” line and click on the “Set up” (or Manage) button;
Step 2 – Here, click on “Stripe API Settings”. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on “Manage API keys manually”. This will activate additional fields for adding test and live keys;

Step 5 – Next, go back to the API keys page in your Stripe Dashboard, and enable the “View test data” option. Copy the Publishable and Secret Keys from this page to the Test key fields on your website;
Step 6 – Finally, click the “Connect to Stripe” button to save the keys you added. You will see a “Your manually managed API keys are valid” notification if the connection is successful.
