Get Started

Use Stripe to easily accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and almost any other kind of credit or debit card in your Big Cartel shop.

Bonus: With Stripe enabled in your shop, your customers using Apple Pay can speed up their purchase with Instant Checkout.



  1. Head to the area of your Big Cartel admin.
  2. Click Edit your payment options, and click Connect next to Stripe.
  3. You’ll be prompted to set up a new Stripe account, or log in to an existing one to connect it to your shop. Learn more about the information Stripe requires to set up an account here.
  4. When that step is complete, you’ll be redirected back to your Big Cartel admin, and you’re all set!


  • Your first payout through Stripe can take up to 14 days to show up. After that, payouts will be made on a rolling basis on a 2, 4, or 7 day schedule.
  • Payout schedules depend on the country you’re based in and your business type. You can learn more here.
  • You can also choose to have payments sent either weekly or monthly in your Stripe account’s payout settings.
