When it comes to accepting payments on your site, no one does it better than Stripe. Seriously, Stripe makes it super simple to start processing credit cards.
They also have an awesome development mode so you can test that everything is working without actually needing a real credit card.
In order to get started, you’ll need three things:
- Bank Account
- SSL Certificate
- A WordPress Plugin with Stripe Integration
You’ll need a bank account so that you can deposit your earnings.
An SSL Certificate encrypts your requests to Stripe so that hackers can’t steal any credit card information.
Lastly, you’ll need a WordPress Plugin that knows how to integrate with Stripe. For our agency sites, we use WooCommerce. It instantly turns your site into an eCommerce store. It also makes it much easier to run a your digital agency.
We use Stripe on all our agency and client sites. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
