There is no doubt about the significance of payment service providers worldwide.

These services have made receiving payments and managing transactions across various countries less complicated than ever.

One of the most widely recognized ones in this field is Stripe. It directly collaborates with the GoHighLevel platform to enable users to vend their items and charge clients wherever they are.

If you plan to connect Stripe for your online business or marketing agency in GoHighLevel, this guide is for you. 

Why Connect Stripe to Your GoHighLevel Account

The platform doesn’t have its own payment processor. However, it does provide four gateways from which you can choose: PayPal, Stripe, NMI, and Authorize.net. They are all great, but connecting Stripe offers several unique advantages.

  • Convenience. You can easily connect with Stripe. Plus, it supports more than 135 currencies without sign-up fees or hidden charges except for transaction fees.
  • Better Customer Experience. Stripe enables you to reach a broad segment of clients by accepting credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, ACH Direct Debit, Affirm, Klarna, and AfterPay. It can boost sales and ensure the highest rate of client satisfaction.
  • Security and Reliability. This payment processor is the choice for more than two million websites across the globe and holds the top level of PCI compliance, meaning all your transactions are safe with it.
  • Advanced Payment Features. Stripe provides sophisticated options such as text-to-pay, which allows customers to make payments through SMS. Additionally, you can directly send invoices, charge recurring subscriptions, and import your existing Stripe products into GoHighLevel.

Where Can You Use the GoHighLevel Stripe Integration

GoHighLevel lets you connect Stripe to your agency dashboard and each sub-account. You can integrate it with as many client accounts as you like. 

Accepting Payments from SaaS Agency Customers

If you subscribe to the GoHighLevel SaaS Pro plan, you can rebrand the platform and sell it as your white-label SaaS software. 

Connecting your Stripe account to your agency dashboard will enable you to get paid automatically by all your customers. 

This helps ensure that each client opts for the most convenient modes to transact. 

Moreover, it allows you to track payments and manage subscriptions efficiently. 

Receiving Payments for Your Sub-Accounts 

The Stripe integration makes it easy to handle payments for different transactions, whether for your business or you’re doing it for clients.

This integration allows you to sell any digital and physical products or services. 

For instance, you can charge for your online courses, coaching sessions, social media planning, and even products from your online store. 

Moreover, you can offer installments and recurring payments and buy now pay later (BNPL) plans. This will make buying easier, enable customers to complete their payments, and increase your overall sales volume.

Adding Existing Stripe Product

Let’s say you’ve already created prices for your tiered community membership or online courses inside Stripe. 

Importing these existing products inside GoHighLevel only takes a few clicks, so you won’t have to input each product or price again. (I’ll show you how to do this later.)

How Much Do You Have to Pay to Integrate Stripe to GoHighLevel

The good news is that the integration itself is free. LeadConnector (GoHighLevel’s native feature) will act as Zapier, so you won’t have to pay for third-party apps. 

However, to proceed, you must subscribe to GoHighLevel and sign up for a Stripe account. 

GoHighLevel pricing plans are as follows. 

  • Starter Plan – $97/month
  • Unlimited Plan – $297/month
  • Agency Pro (White Labeling) – $497/month

The integration is available in all plans, so you can choose which fits your budget. 

Meanwhile, Stripe itself doesn’t have upfront costs, but there are transaction fees.
