Processing payments is now even easier for small business owners, as Stripe recently was added as a preferred payment option for Keap and Infusionsoft users.
Stripe is a leading payments platform that takes a technological approach to the challenges of getting paid. Millions of businesses—ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies—rely on Stripe’s software tools to accept payments securely, and more than 80% of American adults purchased something on Stripe in the past year.
“We’re very excited to join the Stripe Partner Program as a Verified Partner to help more small businesses by enabling them to grow on a global scale,” said Mandy Gifford, Payments Product Marketing Manager at Keap. “Keap’s seamless integration with Stripe’s payments platform creates a best-in-class payments experience that gets our customers paid faster and removes all the headaches of getting paid.”
Keap has built an integration with Stripe to help users improve their cash flow, fight fraud and go global as they scale. With Stripe, users can start accepting credit and debit card payments almost instantly, and will get paid faster by letting customers pay directly on invoices or order forms.
“The Stripe onboarding process is simple and straightforward, allowing small businesses to streamline and automate accepting payments in minutes,” Gifford said. “With Stripe, small businesses using Keap can let their customers conveniently pay invoices by credit or debit cards, and Keap’s automation makes following up on unpaid invoices a snap. Small businesses love the convenience and, because it’s all in Keap, small businesses can see who has paid, what services or products are selling well, and how their cash flow stands.”
Users can either create a new Stripe account directly in their Keap app or connect to an existing Stripe account.
In Keap, create a new Stripe account or connect an existing Stripe Standard account by going to settings >> products, payments, and invoicing >> connect on the Stripe card.
In Infusionsoft, create a new Stripe account or connect an existing Stripe Standard account by going to e-commerce setup >> payment types >> connect on the Stripe card.
Stripe processes payments from 195 countries and accepts over 135 currencies. By observing millions of global businesses processing billions of dollars in payments each year, Stripe can assign risk scores to every payment and automatically block many high-risk transactions. Moreover, Stripe algorithms adapt quickly to shifting fraud patterns and unique businesses.
Once a user has made their first charges with Stripe, their first payout will be initiated, and should post within seven days. Thereafter, all U.S.-based merchants will receive payouts on a rolling two-day schedule. Payout schedules vary slightly for merchants outside of the United States.
“Partnering with Stripe has allowed us to make a meaningful impact by helping small businesses scale and grow at an even faster pace,” Gifford said. “The speed Stripe moves at is unparalleled and their commitment to ease the burden of getting paid through technology innovation fits well with Keap’s commitment to small businesses.”
