Configure Stripe Payment Processor

Configuring the Stripe Payment Processor

After you have signed up for a Stripe account, click the API menu item on the left. You will see a "Publishable" and "Secret" key. You need to click the button to see your secret key:

Next, under the API menu item, is a button called "View Test Data".

Toggle that button to reveal both your publishable and secret keys for testing the payment processor.

You will need both the "live" keys and the "test" keys.

Configure Stripe as a payment processor

Now, in your Powerbase, click Adminster -> System Settings -> Payment Processors.

Click the button to add a new one.

From the Payment Processor Type select box, choose Stripe. If you don't' see Stripe as an option, contact support to have the Stripe Extension enabled.

Select a Financial Account (use Payment Processor Account if you are unsure).

Enter your live and test keys.

Configure Recurring Payments

Stripe can notify PowerBase every time a recurring contribution is processed.

In order to take advantage of this feature, you must configure Stripe with the right "Webhook Endpoing"

You can find the location of this setting in your Stripe Dashboard by clicking the API menu item on the left, and then choose the Webhook tab.

Then click Add Endpoint.

To figure out the "URL to be called" value, please see our help file on finding your web hook end point.

Typically, you only need to configure the end point to send live transactions and you want it to send all events.
