Credit Card Payments
Credit card payments are a safe, secure and well-understood payment method that's familiar to all consumers.
Trolley qorks with Stripe to take credit card payments from your customers.
A credit card is a payment card issued to users (cardholders) to enable the cardholder to pay a merchant for goods and services based on the cardholder's promise to the card issuer to pay them for the amounts plus the other agreed charges. The credit card industry is complex, with a huge number of overlapping terms and names and many companies involved in every transaction - merchants, acquirers, processors, gateways, schemes.
Trolley simplifies this landscape. We work with a single partner, Stripe, who cover a number of these roles in a single, tidy way.
All you have to do is connect Trolley to a Stripe account - which is free to create and only takes a few minutes, and when a customer pays with Trolley, Stripe will deal with all the background activities and transfer the money to you.
What the customer sees
From a customer perspective, the magic behind the scenes is invisible.
They see an optimised and easy-to-use payment flow that offers the choice of credit card or Bank-to-Bank payment, lets them securely enter their card details, and then lets them know when the payment has gone through.
The benefits of credit card payments are:
- Accepting credit cards legitimizes your business.
- Accepting credit cards can boost sales.
- Accepting credit cards helps level the playing field with your competition.
- Credit cards are convenient for customers.
How to accept credit cards with Trolley
It's really simple - all you have to do is click the "Connect with Stripe" button in your account dashboard.
That guides you through the process of connecting to Stripe - including creating a (free) Stripe account if you don't have one yet.
You're then returned to Trolley and you can start creting products and payment links straight away, and receiving funds from your customers.
