During this covid-19 lockdown, online business has started booming all over the world.

Online business has started thriving. By the end of 2020, online sales have increased by 44% which is almost $867.12 billion dollars.

This is why it is really important for your website to have a good payment gateway.

MemberPress is one of the best WordPress plugins that makes it easy to charge your users for access to your content like software, e-books, and online courses.

You can easily integrate digital wallets like Apple Pay or Google Pay for your checkout process.

In this article, I am going to discuss how you can take advantage by integrating these two digital wallets and how you can add them to your MemberPress using Stripe.

How To Add Stripe Checkout To Your MemberPress Website?

Stripe is a very popular tool when it comes to MemberPress websites. Stripe is a fully integrated online payment processor.

It provides a gateway for your users so they can pay using their credit or debit cards.

Stripe has added the option to pay with Google pay and Apple pay.

After this new addition, Stripe will be able to provide a quick and convenient way to pay for something.

You can also customize your checkout section and also select a color that goes with the theme of your business.

To add Stripe to your MemberPress website, follow the steps mentioned below.

  • First, you need to go into the MemberPress Settings and then select the option “Payment page” and a new gateway.
  • Click on the blue “stripe” button.
  • You need to verify your membership account by putting your ID and password into the respected field.
  • Next, you need to authenticate your Stripe account. If you don’t have a Stripe account, then you need to click on the sign-in button in the top right corner of your screen.
  • Select your account and click on the option called the “Connect my Stripe account” button.
  • You need to click on the option called “Live mode” in order to enable this option, you need to have your account verified and then you can only enable this option.
