All Brikl-supported payment methods rely on Stripe to process transactions.
Skip to...Configuring non-transactional payments
What is Stripe?
When a customer checks out, they can choose to pay for their order using any of the payment methods that you've enabled with Stripe. You can find a list of Stripe-supported payment methods here.
Brikl currently supports the following online payment methods that are offered by Stripe:
- Credit card
- Apple Pay
- Apple Pay only works in a Safari browser, not in e.g., Chrome or Firefox. Read more about this on the Apple website.
- For Apple Pay to be activated in the Brikl Dashboard, the merchant domain needs to be verified with Apple first. Please contact Brikl Support for more information.
Create your Stripe account
Ready to get started?
Enable Stripe Connect and add online payment methods
Once you have created a Stripe account, you can enable Stripe Connect from your Brikl dashboard and add payment methods.
Step 1 - Navigate to Payment settings
Go to dashboard > Settings > Payments.
Step 2 - Add Payment Options
Click "Add Payment Option"
Payment methods must first be set up on an Account (Shop) level (Dashboard > Settings > Payments) before you can assign them on a MicroStore level.
Select "Stripe Connect" from the drop-down.
Name the Payment option (e.g. Stripe Connect) and select one or multiple payment methods.
Step 3 - Make a Stripe connection
Click "Connect" to make a connection to your selected provider (Stripe Connect). You can also enable Stripe Connect in test mode before taking your store live.
How does Stripe Connect work?
Stripe Connect works by allowing your Stripe account to connect to Brikl’s. Once the two accounts are connected, the API can process payments from your buyers and automatically transfer them to you.
You become the merchant of record and Brikl is able to set an application fee (i.e. a Brikl commission fee) on each transaction. This fee is registered as a payment from you to us and acts as the commission fee from the sale.
After clicking "Connect" in the Brikl Dashboard, you will be directed to the Stripe Connect login page and will be requested to review and update your details and establish a connection.
Once the Stripe connection has been established, you will be redirected from the Stripe page to the Brikl Dashboard. The payment methods will now be visible in your dashboard.
If you select multiple payment methods, they will appear as separate labels.
You can edit or delete payment methods if you want to make any changes.
Step 4 - Assign Payment Methods
The next step is to assign any available payment methods to your store to enable payment options for your customers.
Click "Add" and select "Stripe Connect"
Don't forget to also select your currency.
The assigned payment methods are now visible in your Dashboard.
Assigned payment methods can be removed if you want to make changes.
Add manual payment methods
Manual payments can be considered any payment in which the merchant is not collecting the payment directly through the Brikl platform. Examples are:
- Bank transfers and wire transfers: Customers can pay via ACH (US) or SEPA (EU).
- Purchase order: Once the customer has placed the orders on the Brikl platform, the customer can submit a purchase order directly to the merchant. The merchant will then send an invoice back to the customer with the payment instructions.
- Payroll deductions: Payroll deductions offer employees the convenience of seamless transactions. They can authorize deductions directly from their salaries, eliminating the need for manual payment processing or entering sensitive payment details repeatedly. It also simplifies record-keeping and reduces the risk of errors, improving efficiency in managing employee purchases and payments.
You can give your payment method a custom title to display to customers at checkout. This will enable you to distinguish between different PO options for customers quickly.
You can add as many PO/manual payment options to your dashboard and choose which options are available in a MicroStore. You can assign specific PO options to a MicroStore.
It's important to note that the Brikl commission fee will be payable for any sales by the merchant that originated online via the Brikl platform, even if sales are concluded and paid offline. Check out our terms of service for more.
The first step is to click "Add."
Next, select the manual payment method and provide payment instructions.
Payment instructions can, for example, include bank account details or wire transfer details.
The manual payment methods are now visible in your dashboard.
You can add manual payment methods without adding online payment methods first.
Assign payment methods to a MicroStore
You can assign payment methods to a specific MicroStore. The assigned payment methods will overwrite the default account (shop) payment method.
Overwriting the default payment methods on a MicroStore level is important in case you want to, for example, run a Purchase Order (PO) store only.
Enabling more than one PO method in a MicroStore
You can enable multiple manual payment options at checkout to allow customers to select between them. This may be especially useful for customers with multiple PO types.
Collect PO numbers from customers during checkout:
Customers will be prompted to input the PO number during checkout if a purchase order is selected as a payment method.
This PO number will be stored as part of their order details and listed in any reports generated.
You cannot set payment methods on a storefront level, only on an account (shop) or MicroStore level.
Go to MicroStore > Payment to see two options to set the payment methods for your MicroStore.
The default setting means the MicroStore will use the payment methods from the account (shop) setting. A preview of the default payment method and instructions is displayed below in the dashboard.
⚠️ Since this is a preview, it cannot be edited or removed. If you want to change the payment method or instructions, go to Dashboard > Settings > Payment.
Assign a specific payment method
In case you decide to assign a specific payment method to a MicroStore, you will be offered the following menu. You will need to assign at least one payment method. You can always add more later.
Don't forget to also select the currency you want to make available to your customers.
The assigned payment methods will now be visible in your MicroStore.
How are the payment methods visible to the customer?
Use Case 1:
Use a default payment method (from the account setting section) for this MicroStore.
Use Case 2:
Assign a specific payment method to this MicroStore.
Add instructions under a manual payment option
How to Use
- Navigate to payment settings. This can be accessed either from the dashboard settings or the MicroStore settings.
The settings showcase two purchase order methods.
- When selecting "Purchase Order," choose the method name for which you want to set up instructions.
- After clicking "create," your selections will be displayed in the table. In the example below, we've added instructions for two PO methods.
- On the customer side, the payment instructions will appear when they select a payment method that has instructions configured.
Here's an example when choosing “Payroll”:
And here's what it looks like when “Bank Transfer” is selected:
Creating a quote order store
This feature is incredibly useful for sales reps who want to send stores to customers, generate leads, and drive sales.
You’ll need to set up the MicroStore as a quote store to use this feature. This allows your customers to place orders without making payments. A quote will be generated, which you can then pass on to your customer instead.
Orders can be collated as quotes, but payment links cannot be generated.
How to set this up
Go to MicroStore settings and turn on the “Quotes only MicroStore” toggle to allow orders to be collected and quotes to be generated.
Set up a quote as a payment method
Go to Account Setting > Payment tab
Add a quote payment method to your existing payment configuration (see how you can set these up here) by clicking the three dots highlighted in the screenshot. Alternatively, click Add Payment Option to add the quote payment method.
3. Assign the payment configuration to your MicroStore.
- Go to MicroStore setting > Payment tab.
- Click “Add” and “Quote” to accept it as a payment method.
Payment methods will only be displayed when the MicroStore is set up as a quote store. Please follow the preceding steps in this article if you can’t see quotes as an accepted payment method.
Once the customer orders, the quote order will be visible to you under “Orders” in your dashboard.
Here, quotes will be visible in the payment and shipment status columns.
What your customer sees
Your customer will see the “Request a quote” option on the product page instead of “Add to cart”.
At checkout, quotes can be selected as payment.
All they need to do now is submit their quote.
Configuring non-transactional payment methods in purchase order stores
You can customize a non-transactional payment method in your purchase order stores, e.g., via payroll.
How does this feature work?
You can set these payment methods up against multiple purchase orders in your store.
Step 1: Set up a payment option. Refer to our guide on setting up payment methods to see how this works in more detail.
- Go to your shop settings > Payment tab.
2. Click add payment option > Select Manual.
Add an internal name, select the method as ‘Purchase order,’ then click ‘Add.'
Step 2: Assign a payment method to the MicroStore or shop (this can be set up at a shop level or a MicroStore level).
To set up payment at a shop level
- Go to your Shop setting > Payment tab.
To set up payment at a MicroStore level
Go to the Sales Channel menu > Select the MicroStore.
Focus on the Payment Assignment section and click Add.
Select your desired payment option (purchase orders have already been set up in Step 1).
- In the example below, we’ve added two methods of non-transactional payment to our MicroStore.
On the customer’s side, they can then see these at checkout.
Once the customer places an order, they can see the selected payment method on the order summary page.
