Enable credit card purchases for your product

Orbitera currently supports credit card transactions processed by Stripe, which is a payment management tool.

After you enter your secret, live (not publishable) Stripe token into the Orbitera platform, you can accept credit card purchases.

Before you begin

  1. If you don't already have one, create your free Stripe account.
  2. Check your email inbox to confirm your Stripe account.
  3. Log in to Stripe with the credentials you created.
  4. Click Activate your account in the left menu.
  5. Complete all the fields, and set your website to your Orbitera marketplace address.

    The activation form varies based on your country, so select that first.

  6. Make sure that View test data is toggled off.

  7. Click API keys, click Reveal live key token, and copy your secret token.

    It should look like sk_live_......

Add your secret token to Orbitera

Go to Third-Party Integrations

  1. Under Merchant APIs, set the merchant to Stripe.
  2. Enter your secret API key to authenticate with the merchant.

After the API key is authenticated, credit card transactions for your marketplace products are functional.
