If you use Checkfront then you know that you have dozens of options to process payments for your business (see The Definitive Guide to Payment Gateways); part of what makes our software so secure is the fact that we’ve put all the money-related duties into the hands of the professionals, and made it as easy as possible to integrate those payment providers into your website.
While we wouldn’t presume to pick favourites, we are thrilled to announce that we have entered into a partnership with Stripe, which is a very popular payment provider that pairs extraordinarily well with Checkfront’s existing services. While you are by no means obligated to use Stripe for your business (and none of our other gateway options are going away), we’re recommending it as a default for business owners in the following countries:
- The United States
- The United Kingdom
- The Netherlands
Why do we love Stripe? They have no fixed monthly fees, no holdbacks on your money, no fees for refunds, and they pay out your earnings on a weekly basis. Even more excitingly, Stripe has a tokenized billing option; if a customer pays for a tour and then decides they want to add something later, you do not need to take their credit details a second time. It’s easy, flexible, and gives you even more control to provide a fantastic experience for your customer. And, of course, Stripe also integrates seamlessly into Checkfront’s app and your website.
Check out more information on Stripe here, and enable it by logging into your account, going to Manage – Ecommerce, and clicking ‘Enable’. And don’t worry—we still support over 20 different payment gateways if Stripe isn’t a fit for you.
