How to Use Stripe for Processing Payments

Have you ever wanted to accept credit cards on your website without sending your customers to Paypal?

All FASO accounts support accepting credit cards via Stripe for sales from your website. 

All you have to do is setup a free Stripe account (if you don’t have one) and connect your Stripe account to your FASO account. 

This provides your customers with a much smoother checkout process and does not send them to a separate site. The full transaction stays in your shopping cart.

Once you enable Stripe on your account, the FASO software will automatically create Add to Cart buttons for any artwork showing a price and Availability left blank or set as Available

The document states that if you do not have an EIN and are an individual (not an LLC, Sole Proprietor, etc.) you can generally use your SSN in place of the EIN.
