💰 Get paid
With Big Cartel, you can accept orders through your online shop or in person using our iOS app.
- On the web, customers can pay by card via Stripe, or with PayPal.
- If you have Stripe enabled, customers with Apple Pay can use Instant Checkout to complete their purchase directly from a product page.
- If you have PayPal enabled, customers can pay with Venmo or PayPal Credit.
- Payments you accept via in-person checkout can be processed with Stripe or cash.
We don’t charge any fees on the things you sell, so you can keep more of the money you earn. (Processor fees from Stripe/PayPal still apply.)
🤔 So, which one should I choose?
When in doubt, enabling both Stripe and PayPal covers the broadest range of payment options your customers may want to use. Stripe is by far the easiest way for customers to pay - they just add products to the cart, enter their card number securely at checkout, and boom, done!
On the other hand, many swear by PayPal and like the ease of logging in to an account to use a saved payment method (or even check out as a “guest” using a card), so you can give your customers that option too.
Ultimately, it’s up to you and what makes the most sense for your business. And don’t forget: you can add, update, or remove checkout options from your shop any time in the Account area of your admin.
