Infusionsoft And Stripe Integration
Today, I wanted to record a quick video just showing you the new Infusionsoft and Stripe Integration.
It was just announced yesterday the latest Infusionsoft And Stripe Integration. And I think that's quite a big deal. We've been waiting for this for a long time now and it's really important that if you've not got a credit card processing or if you've got one already to have a backup one.
Stripe Is VERY Versatile
Now Stripe is very versatile. It's pretty easy to apply for, so I would definitely recommend if you've already got a merchant that you apply for this as a backup. I've seen so many of my clients in recent months and years have accounts turned off, merchant accounts shut down by people and then have a real problem to try and get a new merchant account up and running. Especially if you've got things like recurring payments.
If you've got a backup merchant, it's very, very easy and straightforward, a bit of a pain, but you can actually switch from one merchant to another quite seamlessly in the background without any interruption to service to your actual clients. So a huge thing to think about. I don't think, unless it happens to you, people actually think it will happen. I've seen it many times and it can be a real pain in the ass when it does.
So definitely look into this. Stripe's rates are pretty economical, not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but it's definitely worth, no significant fees every month. They just charge you on the charges that you run through them.
The Set-Up Is Really Straightforward
So to set this up, pretty straightforward, just go to settings, merchant accounts and you can see here now that there's a Stripe option. So I want to now set up a new account. If you've already got a Stripe account, you can sign here and do it. I'm going to just go through the process of setting up a new account. So just going to put my details… I'm going to pause the video now when I complete this form, won't let you be bored through the whole process of me typing things in.
Okay. I've completed the form now, I'm just going to authorize it. Just asking me to… it's a two-step authorization somewhere. It looks like it's doing its thing in the background now to hopefully connect up. And we can see how we've got our connected account here with Stripe. So there we go.
We're all connected up and ready to go. So pretty simple process, quick application. You probably get some verifications you need from Stripe following up from this, but definitely worth doing as soon as possible on your accounts.
NB: As this is a new integration I would suggest you carefully test it before switching your existing payment gateway over.
