Connecting ClickFunnels to Stripe is a very simple process. This post will guide you step by step with illustrations on how to integrate Stripe with ClickFunnels.
What Do You Need?
To complete this integration you only need to have a ClickFunnels account setup.
You can sign up for your Stripe account whilst completing the Stripe integration with ClickFunnels if you don’t already have one.
If of course, you’d rather set up your Stripe account directly with them, click here to go to Stripe’s website, but ensure that you are logged out of your Stripe account before proceeding with the instructions.
How To Integrate Stripe With ClickFunnels
Log in to your ClickFunnels account and click on Account Settings:
Click Payment Gateways:
Click Add New Payment Gateway:
Click Create Stripe Account:
Please note, for this example, I am using my ClickFunnels Basic account, hence only being allowed to create one Stripe Account. If you are on the Platinum Plan you will be allowed to create three Stripe accounts.
Name your Stripe account. I suggest something related to whatever products or services you are selling. Something to bear in mind is if you upgrade to the ClickFunnels Platinum plan at any point you will be able to use three Stripe accounts within ClickFunnels.
Decide whether this will be your default Stripe account or not:
Then click Create Stripe Account:
Click Next: Connect With Stripe. You will now be redirected to Stripe’s website.
You will now be redirected to the Stripe login page.
If you already have a Stripe account setup, click Sign In. Once you have signed in, your Stripe account will be connected with ClickFunnels and you don’t need to do anything else.
If you don’t already have a Stripe account, fill in your details then click Authorize access to this account:
Please note that after signing up, you may only be able to use your Stripe account for test transactions for a short time. This is normal as Stripe will need to verify the bank account you entered in your application form.
Conclusion: Why Use Stripe As My ClickFunnels Payment Gateway?
Now you have completed the ClickFunnels Stripe integration you can:
- Create a one-off product using Stripe
- Create a subscription product payment plan in Stripe

I recommend you also offer your customers the opportunity of paying you with PayPal, which is something you can do with Stripe via ClickFunnels 3rd Part Integrations. Please see this article for step by step instructions: How To Integrate PayPal With ClickFunnels
