Stripe is a great payment processor to use if you are looking to take recurring and one off payments using a credit or debit card.
There are two parts to setting up Stripe, obtaining your Stripe Secret and Publishable Keys and setting up your Stripe Webhook. Please remember to do both.
NOTE: Each website must have its own Stripe account. You cannot use the same Stripe secret key on multiple websites.
Create your Stripe account
- Sign Up for Stripe
How to find your secret and publishable keys
- Log into your Stripe Dashboard.
- In the left-hand menu > Select Developers then API Keys.
- Click Reveal live key Token.
- Copy the Live Secret Key string of characters.
- Open your SubHub site in a new tab/window.
- Log in and go to your Site Settings > Payment Processor tab.
- Paste in your Stripe Live Secret Key into the field.
- Copy and paste your Stripe Publishable Key into the field.
- Click Save Settings.
Your Stripe account will be set to Test as default. Change this to Live to start accepting payments.
We would also advise you to take a test payment immediately to ensure it's working correctly.
Please remember to verify your Stripe account by clicking on the verification link which will be sent to your email address.
Setting up your webhook
- Login to Stripe.
- In the left-hand menu, select Developers then Webhooks.
- Click - Add endpoint for the top option - Receiving events from your account.
- In the URL field add: https://yoursite.com/stripe
- Click the blue receive all events link in the window.
- Click - Add endpoint.
FINAL STEP: Always make a test payment before launching your site.
