Setting up Stripe (Recommended Payment Processor)

Step 1: Create Account

Before using Stripe, you will need to create an account. Create your free account here. You can review Stripe's pricing here. Stripe has no set up or monthly fees. They do however, have a rolling 7 day transfer. This means that funds generated on Wednesday would be available in your back account on the following Wednesday.

Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. Be sure to confirm.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Stripe requires an SSL certificate. InkSoft makes a free SSL certificate option available, or you can buy a dedicated SSL certificate. Either way, you need to have an SSL enabled in order to use Stripe.
