SonicFunnels comes with stripe payment gateway integrated in it. Stripe is a payment processing platform. It allows you to accept credit card payments on your website. After a successful Stripe payment the money will be stored in your Stripe account and then can be transferred into your bank account. In this article we will walk you through the process of activating it. Before you start, please make sure you have SonicFunnels installed and you have an account registered with Stripe. In order to use Stripe, you will also need to use https instead of http. So make sure you have SSL certificate installed on your server.
Before we go into Stripe, you will need to activate this payment method inside SonicFunnels. So log into your SonicFunnels installation and go to “Sales Management” -> “Checkout Settings” and find the “Enable stripe” option. Set it to “Yes“.
Next go to “Sales Management” -> “Payment Gateways” and select Stripe here. You will be presented with a few options:
- Select environment: this can be “Test” or “Live”. We recommend testing it first to make sure everything works fine, but in this example let’s select “Live”.
- Stripe live publishable key: this can be obtained from your Stripe account. Details are below.
- Stripe live secret key: this can also be obtained from your Stripe account. Details are below.
Because we are going to use the live environment, no need to fill out the “Stripe test publishable key” and “Stripe test secret key” fields. The publishable key and secret key are necessary for completing successful payments on your website. The keys identify and connect your Stripe account with your SonicFunnels installation.

To obtain the live publishable key and secret key, you will need to log into your Stripe account.
After logging in you should see something like this:
Here you can see your live publishable key and live secret key. Copy them and paste them into the SonicFunnels payment gateway settings.
After you save your settings, you should also resave your “Checkout settings. After that the Stripe payment gateway should work on your website. We recommend test it with a small payment before you go live with your product or service.
