Connect your account to Stripe to activate your Postcart site and allow visitors to view and make purchases. Stripe is the payment processing system which allows your customers to use any credit card to make a purchase. Stripe has no subscription fee and is the gold standard of online credit cards processors. Rates are: 2.9% + 30¢ per successful charge. To learn more about Stripe visit them here.
In addition to Stripe you can also accept Paypal payments. However, Stripe is required to activate your shop. Paypal is an optional additional payment method available for your use once Stripe is active.
If you already have a Stripe account, simply log in. To create a new account, click "Sign in with Stripe to connect".
Stripe asks for basic information about your business and banking in order to transfer money from your sales to your account. The form seems long, but it requires only basic information and takes just a few minutes to complete.
If you do not have a business website, you may use your Postcart website URL. For example: www.postcart.co/your_shop_username.
Once your Stripe account is created, navigate back to POSTCART to confirm that your Stripe account is connected. The box will say "Disconnect Stripe" if Stripe is activated.
