Let’s say you’ve created a quality product or service that people value and want to pay for. You’ve set up a sales funnel to capture and convert leads into paying customers, and you’re ready to take payments. What do you do?
The answer is surprisingly simple. You can integrate Stripe with Clickfunnels.
Yes, you read that right. You can use the popular conversion tool with one of the most popular payment processors out there. And the best part is that they have a really simple and easy to use API that allows you to build almost anything you can think of.
So let’s dive in and find out how.
Step one: Set up your sales funnel.
If you’re using Clickfunnels, you probably already have a sales funnel created with the tool. So go ahead and open up a new conversion trial and integrate Stripe.
The first thing you’ll want to do is name your funnel. Typically, you’ll use your company name or the product name you’re promoting for sale. But you can also use a unique identifier such as ‘ABC123′ if you want. However, keep in mind that this is a unique identifier and shouldn’t be confused with the Product or Company names.
Once you’ve set up your funnel, head over to the next step.
Step two: Configure Stripe to work with Clickfunnels.
Stripe is all about simplifying payments and accepting online payments for all kinds of businesses, including eCommerce stores and service providers. If you want to accept payments for products and services from online merchants and digital marketers, then Stripe is the answer.
To configure Stripe with Clickfunnels, you’ll want to create a new account. Then, click the Settings icon on the dashboard and select ‘Products’ from the side menu. Then, from the dropdown menu, you can select ‘Stripe’.
From here, you’ll want to create a new Stripe account. Enter your email address and select the secure button to create your new account. You’ll now be able to log in and access all your account information.
Stripe supports various types of payment methods, including credit cards and bank transfers. So you don’t have to limit yourself to only checking one option.
Step three: Add the Stripe button to your website.
The best part about integrating Stripe with your business website is that you don’t have to do much more.
Once you’ve logged in and set up your Stripe account, you can go back to your dashboard, select the tab for your site, and click on the ‘Add Product Button’.
Naming your product is optional, but it’s a good idea to give it a unique name that will help you identify it later. For example, maybe you want to call your product a ‘Download’, ‘License’, or ‘Subscription’.
Then, copy and paste the shortcode into the box that appears.
Finally, don’t forget to save your website’s settings, and you’re done! Now whenever someone buys a product or makes a purchase on your site, you’ll see a notification.
Step four: Display the Stripe button on your website.
You want to display the Stripe button on your website so that your visitors know exactly where to go if they want to make a purchase.
To do this, head back to your website and look for the shortcode you just copied and pasted. Then, from the Appearance menu, select the option for ‘Stripe’.
Then, in the area where you want to display the button, you’ll see three horizontal lines. Simply copy and paste the button into the space above the header.
Step five: Test your integration.
Now that you have the Stripe button on your site, it’s time to test the integration. Buy a product or make a purchase using the button on your site, and you’ll see a notification when the charge goes through.
If everything is working correctly, then you’ll see a green notification area in the upper right-hand corner of your dashboard. If you have trouble, click the link inside the notification area to open up a support email.
In that email, you’ll find a Stripe agent who can help you troubleshoot the issue.
