What You Need to Enable Stripe

A Stripe account

If you don't have a Stripe account yet, we recommend you create your account via their website or get in touch with their sales team via their contact form.

Make sure your account is fully active and not in Test Data mode before getting started.

If you see a Test Data banner at the top of the page and your secret key has a Reveal test key button, your Stripe account isn't ready for the integration.


Add the necessary business and bank details to your Stripe account to activate it before moving to the next step. You'll know your account is live when the Test Data banner doesn't appear at the top of the API Keys page anymore.

If you complete the integration using your test details instead of your active (live) details, you won't be able to successfully process and collect payments using Stripe.

Your Stripe Secret API Key

If you don't have it already, you need to obtain your Stripe secret API key. You can get this key through Simply log in if you aren't already, click Reveal live key tokens and copy your secret key somewhere.


Once you have the secret API key, you're ready to enable Stripe in Nexudus.

Enabling Stripe

  1. Log in to if you aren't already.

  2. Click Settings > Payments and currency > Payment methods.

  3. Click on Stripe.

  4. Define a Payment gateway name.

    This is the name of the payment option as it will be displayed on the Members Portal.      

  5. Fill out the Transaction fee section if you'd like to charge customers for using Stripe.

Make sure you comply with your local laws and regulations on transaction fees.

Most European countries, including the United Kingdom, do not allow businesses to charge customers choosing to pay through a card payment option.

  1. Add your Stripe API key.

All set! We recommend you test the payment method as a customer to make sure the integration works as intended.
