If you use Stripe to process payments on your website, you can offer your visitors multiple options for making those payments — including methods like Apple Pay, Google Pay and ACH direct debit. This variety of payment methods can improve the flexibility and convenience of transactions on your site and result in a better experience for supporters.

This article will walk you through the process of enabling different payment options in your Stripe account.

  • Remember to turn off any payment methods you do not wish to offer.

Additional Configuration

Certain payment methods, including Google Pay and Apple Pay, may require additional steps, like configuring your domain. If that’s the case, you’ll see an alert like this:
