Get started

The fastest way to integrate Stripe

Checkout’s intuitive APIs and documentation make it easy to get started, and easy to iterate.

Modular in nature

Use Checkout as your all-in-one payment page, or use it only for specific payment methods by combining it with our embeddable UI components.

Supports advanced use cases

Checkout works with our other APIs to let you set up subscriptions or power your platform or marketplace payments.

Security

Built-in fraud prevention and compliance

Powerful fraud protection

Checkout uses machine learning to help you distinguish fraudsters from customers. Apply extra authentication to high-risk payments, or let us take on fraudulent disputes entirely with Chargeback Protection.

Compliance made easy

Qualify for the simplest method of PCI validation with a pre-filled SAQ A, and easily meet new regulatory requirements like Europe’s Strong Customer Authentication.
