How to set up Stripe

On Your Dirigible Website

First things first

What is Stripe?

Stripe is Dirigible Studio’s preferred payment processor. It’s a great alternative to Paypal, Square, and other online payment methods for small businesses.

Let’s walk you through setting up your own Stripe account.

Before you start, you’ll need your:

  • Tax ID Number or SSN
  • Bank account information with routing number

We like Stripe because it’s

EASY TO USE

It’s a snap for our clients, their customers and for our developers

ROBUST & RELIABLE

Stripe has a ton of features, is constantly improving and is extremely reliable.

HAS COMPETITIVE PRICING

For many businesses, Stripe makes a lot of sense. For smaller volumes and those who are just starting out, the rates are very competitive.
