Stripe is a PCI Service Provider Level 1 compliant online payment processor. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payment industry. If you’ve ever used a ride share or food delivery app, you’ve used Stripe.
During profile setup, you can choose what payment methods you accept (cash, check, or credit card).
We recommend setting up your credit card payments as a provider because many businesses want to pay online. If a business ONLY pays via credit card and you do not have the credit card payment option set up, the establishment won't be able to find your business.
For help with updating your payment methods and registering with Stripe, check out the article Customizing Your Profile.
