Welcome (Part 5 of 5): Selling your products and getting paid!
You’ve created a great product or products, now it’s time for you to get paid for your hard work. Before you sell your products online, we want to make sure that you’re set up to get paid! 💵
If your LearningCart site was not configured for you, the out of the box default setting will only allow customers to place orders using purchase orders. The site can be configured to allow either credit card or purchase order payment, or to require purchase order payment for orders above a specific dollar amount.
Credit Card Payments
In order to accept credit cards, you must configure your payment gateway settings.
LearningCart supports accepting credit cards through Authorize.net, Stripe, PayPal (both Paypal Express & Payflow) and WorldPay. Before you can configure your site to accept credit cards you must first sign up for an account with one of those services.
If you do not have an account you can easily sign up for Authorize.net or create a Stripe or PayPal account.
Once you have established an account you can then login to your LearningCart admin area and configure your payment gateway settings.
