How To Enable Stripe as a Payment Method

To enable the Stripe checkout, visit the "Ecommerce > Checkouts" section of your Freewebstore Control Panel


To the right of the Stripe logo, click the Edit Settings button to expand the Settings, change the email address if you wish, then click "Authorize Stripe"


Once the Authorization process has completed, you'll be able to see the Stripe Settings


Setting the Account Mode to "Test Mode" will allow you to test the checkout on your store. You'll need to use valid details, but "payments" will be simulated and put into your Stripe test account. Your credit card will not be charged.

Live Mode will charge cards and put real funds into your main Stripe account.

The Return URL dropdowns allow to select where the customer is redirected once a payment is successful or fails.

Finally, you can choose one of the images to display on your store. These will show in the Footer and on your final Checkout Page as a button. You can also upload your own custom image if you wish.

Once you have finished, make sure "Enable Stripe Checkout" is checked and then click "Save Settings >"


If you ever wish to disable Stripe, make sure you have another Checkout option available, then Edit Settings > Uncheck "Enable Stripe Checkout" > Save Settings.
