When you first get started with Thinkific, there are some essential integrations we recommend setting up to get you up and running!
In this article:
We support direct integrations with PayPal and Stripe to accept payment for your courses. You can integrate with one or both options. You can access both payment integrations by navigating to the Payments tab, located on your Settings page:
Here are some things to consider when choosing your payment solution:
- Stripe supports one-time payments, subscriptions and payment plans
- PayPal supports one-time payments only
- PayPal integration supports USD only
- Integrating with Stripe allows you to change your currency site-wide
- If you integrate with both PayPal and Stripe, changing your currency under Stripe will apply to both integrations
(Note that you must set your desired currency BEFORE accepting payment from students)

Tracking your website traffic and other analytics can help you make informed decisions for your business. We recommend integrating with Google Analytics as you get started! Facebook Pixel is also popular. See our article on Advanced Apps and Integrations for more advanced analytics options.
