Processing payments with Stripe
What's better than using Qwilr to automate the acceptance process with your clients? Getting their payment too!
In this article:
With our Stripe integration, your clients can pay you as they're accepting your your Qwilr Page.
Setting up the Stripe integration
Step 1: Click your initials in the top right corner of the page, then choose Add Integrations.
Step 2: Choose Stripe from the list of integration options. Then click Connect with Stripe.
Step 3: A window should pop up. (If you don't see one, check whether your browser is blocking the pop-up and allow pop-ups from qwilr.com.) Follow the prompts to connect your Qwilr and Stripe accounts.
Once you've authorized the connection, you're all set up with Stripe!
Setting a Qwilr Page to receive payment
Step 1: Head to the Accept Block in your page. In the top left corner, click on the credit card icon.
Step 2: Toggle the switch to Enable pay now.
Step 3. You can also enter your business name as you want it to appear on your clients' credit card statement. Add any notes you wish to show on the credit card form in the Optional extra information field.
Note: If you don't set your company name in the Accept Block, Qwilr will use the company name from your account settings. After the company name, Qwilr will include as much of the Qwilr Page name as will fit after your company name. There's a 22-character limit to what appears on your client's credit card statement.
Payment options available
The Payment Setup menu (pictured above) has two additional options available, to give you more control over the payment requirements.
Enable optional payment
By default, the Stripe integration requires full payment to be made at the time the Qwilr Page is accepted. Toggling the Enable optional payment switch allows your client to choose if they want to pay via Stripe or another method.
Enable part payment
This setting lets you designate a percentage of the full total as the required payment amount. This is useful if, for example, you only intend to collect a deposit when the Qwilr Page is accepted.
Note: If you collect a partial payment during acceptance, you'd then need to invoice your client separately for the balance. The later payment can't be processed through Qwilr.
Disabling the Stripe integration
You can disable your integration with Stripe at any time by going to the Stripe integration settings in Qwilr and clicking Disable.
