Stripe Checkout Considerations

Payment Method Type Limitations

If you are not seeing your preferred Payment Method type as an option this is because it is not currently support by Stripe Checkout. A list of supported Payment Method types for checkout can be found here.

  • Example: ACH is NOT supported in Stripe Checkout. Please use one of our other solutions for this Payment Method type. "afterpay clearpay" is also on this list; however, it is not supported.

Apple Pay and Google Pay

In order to see the option for Apple Pay or Google Pay in Stripe Checkout you must be viewing Stripe Checkout from a supported device. Discover more about wallets here.

Example: To view the Apple Pay button in Stripe Checkout you must be using an iOS device AND have your Apple wallet configured.
