- Can I give students the option to pay using Thinkific Payments, Stripe, or PayPal at checkout?
- Is it possible to integrate with both Thinkific Payments and Stripe?
If you connect with all three payment integrations, only Thinkific Payments and PayPal will be available for your students to purchase through at checkout. If you connect with Thinkific Payments and Stripe, only Thinkific Payments will be available for your students to purchase through at checkout.
Thinkific Payments will be an option for your students to pay with at checkout regardless of the product pricing. PayPal will only be an option for your students to pay with at checkout if the purchase is for a product with one-time payment pricing.
Thinkific Payments if You've Previously Connected With Stripe
When you sign up for Thinkific Payments, students will no longer see the option to pay with Stripe at checkout.
If you had previously integrated with Stripe, you can log into your Stripe account for records of any recurring payments that were processed before signing up for Thinkific Payments.
No new orders from your checkout will be processed through Stripe, however, recurring payments for subscriptions and payment plans purchased before you connected Thinkific Payments will still be processed through Stripe.
PayPal and Thinkific Payments
If you have a PayPal account connected to your Thinkific site - and are also connected with Thinkific Payments - students will still see the option to pay with PayPal at checkout for courses and bundles with one-time payment pricing. As it is currently not possible to process recurring payments through our native integration with PayPal, students will not see the option to pay with PayPal at checkout for courses with subscription and payment plan pricing.
You can log into your PayPal account for records of all transactions processed through PayPal.
Orders Tracking in the Thinkific Admin Dashboard
Order tracking is also available in the Orders Report, which is built into the Thinkific Admin Dashboard. In this table, you will see all of the student transactions completed through Thinkific's Built in Checkout using Stripe, PayPal, and Thinkific Payments.
