Use Stripe as a payment gateway
Note: Stripe will soon be removed as a payment gateway. We recommend switching to Square. You can do so by following the steps here.
If you don't already have one, you can create a free Stripe account and enable online payments for 2.9% and $0.30 per transactions. Integrating your Stripe account with Occasion is quick and easy.
