SilverStripe Shop Payment Woes

Hey guys,

So, I'm setting Stripe as my payment gateway of choice. When moving through the payment process, I get to the page where I need to enter address details and card details, but submitting presents the error "The number parameter is required". I've walked through the code and queried the form values as they pass, and I've noticed the card specific details aren't being parsed to named values that Stripe expects. All the other fields are; just not the card details. Is there a config setting or somesuch I should be specifying for this?

Many thanks,

LeeSylvester, improving Stripe integration is very high on our list. I'm looking into this issue but it may take a few days to get you an answer. Would you mind submitting this as an issue on the silverstripe-omnipay project ( and we can continue to communicate about it there?

Helen, those StackOverflow posts are in reference to a different product - a store module for Expression Engine - so I don't think they will help. We're still working on version 1.2.0 of Shop so I hope he doesn't have to wait to 2.0.4. ;)

Sure, I can do that. I was able to fix it with a hack. I'll let you know what I did. I'm sure its not the correct way to do it, but I can take payments now.
