Accepting credit cards on your online store

When you create your online store with StoreBuilder, it comes ready-to-use with a powerful online payment method: a payment processor (sometimes referred to as a ‘gateway’) called Stripe. A payment processor is a company that handles credit card transactions so that your customers can buy your products online.

Step 1: Sign up for a Stripe account

In order to start accepting major credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, etc. on your StoreBuilder store, you will first need to create an account with Stripe. Setting up an account can be done by registering on the Stripe website.

Step 2: Link your StoreBuilder store to Stripe

After your Stripe account is set up, it’s time to link your account to your StoreBuilder store. Starting in the administrative area of your store, select WooCommerce from the left menu, then select settings. Once the settings page is visible, click the ‘Payments’ tab, and you’ll see Stripe under the method column. Click on the ‘Set up’ button to the right of the description to access the Stripe payment settings.
