What is Stripe?

Stripe is a payment processing platform that allows you to transfer money from a customer's bank account into your business account by way of a credit or debit card transaction.

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
  • BanContact
  • iDEAL
  • Sofort

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.Untitled-Aug-19-2022-06-59-18-72-AM
  • 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?

First, create an account with Stripe. In most cases, the account approval process is nearly instantaneous. 

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.

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.

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"

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 orders have been placed by the customer 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.

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 for 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.

Screenshot 2022-06-22 at 13.33.31

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.

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.

Default setting

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.Screenshot 2022-06-22 at 13.48.30

⚠️ Since this is a preview, it cannot be edited or removed. If you want to make changes to the payment method or payment 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 shop setting) for this MicroStore.


Use Case 2:

Assign a specific payment method to this MicroStore.
