Setting up Stripe on PinnacleCart

Step 1: Sign up for a Stripe Account

The first step in the setup process is to create a Stripe account. Visit the official Stripe website at and click on the "Sign Up" button to register.

Fill in the required information, including your email, password, and business details. Once you've completed the signup process, you'll be directed to your Stripe dashboard.

Step 2: Enable Stripe Integration in PinnacleCart

Next, log in to your PinnacleCart admin panel and navigate to the settings section. Select "Payment" and click on "Payment Gateways." Look for the Stripe option and click on "Enable."

Enter your Stripe API credentials, including the Publishable Key and Secret Key, which you can find in your Stripe dashboard under the "Developers" section. Save the changes, and Stripe will now be integrated into your PinnacleCart store.

Step 3: Configure Stripe Settings

Once Stripe is enabled, you can customize the settings according to your business requirements. You can specify the currency, enable test mode for development purposes, and configure additional options such as card statement descriptors and email receipts.

Step 4: Test Your Integration

Before going live, it's crucial to test your Stripe integration to ensure everything is working correctly. PinnacleCart offers a test mode that allows you to simulate transactions without charging real funds.

Make a few test purchases using different payment methods to verify the seamless payment flow. This step will help you identify any potential issues and ensure a smooth customer experience.
