Stripe

Stripe is a United States-based online payment solution provider, allowing businesses to accept credit cards and other payment methods.

Fill in your credentials #

In case your API Credentials are required to connect with your Stripe account, these are the credentials that must be completed:

  • Publishable Key: The key solely used to identify the account with Stripe.
  • Secret Key: The key to sign the merchant account with Stripe.
  • Webhook Signing Secret: When you enable your webhook on your Stripe account, this signing secret must be set to authenticate the messages sent from Stripe to CPA Books.

To retrieve the publishable and secret keys, follow this link to your API keys, or log into your Stripe dashboard and go to Developers ‣ API Keys ‣ Standard Keys.

Generate a webhook #

In case your Webhook Signing Secret is required to connect with your Stripe account, you can create a webhook either automatically or manually.

Make sure your Publishable and Secret keys are filled in, then click on the Generate your Webhook button.


Enable local payment methods #

Local payment methods are payment methods that are only available for certain merchants and customers countries and currencies.

CPA Books supports the following local payment methods:

  • Bancontact
  • EPS
  • giropay
  • iDEAL
  • Przelewy24 (P24)

To enable specific local payment methods with Stripe, list them as supported payment icons. To do so, go to Payment Acquirers ‣ Stripe ‣ Configuration and add the desired payment methods in the Supported Payment Icons field. If the desired payment method is already listed, you don’t have anything to do. If a payment icon record doesn’t exist in the database, its related payment method is considered enabled with Stripe.

Select and add icons of the payment methods you want to enable
