Connect Stripe to Your Store via Key Integration

Integrating Stripe into your online store allows you to securely accept payments from customers worldwide. To get started, you'll need to set up your Stripe account. This guide will walk you through the process step by step, ensuring a smooth setup that enables you to start processing payments quickly and efficiently.

Due to limited functionality, the API Key method is not advised and is set to be phased out in the near future. We strongly recommend using the Open Authorization method instead, due to its enhanced security features.
