Sell products and services directly on your website in Mailchimp using the Payment section. The Payment section includes a buy button connected to your Stripe account, so visitors can quickly make a purchase through a secure payment service. You can also set up fundraisers to accept donations.
In this article, you’ll learn how to add and customize the Payment section on your website.
Before you start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
Make sure you include taxes and shipping in the product cost. The Payment section doesn't add sales tax or shipping charges to your product.
The Payment section is best suited for one-off products or services.
How it works
When you add the Payment section to a web page, it creates a space for a product image, title, price, description, and buy button. Add your product details directly to the layout, and turn on the payment option to link the button directly to your Stripe account.
When page visitors click the buy button, they’ll see a checkout form to place an order directly from your website.
An order confirmation will be emailed to the shopper, and a purchase confirmation notice will be created in your Stripe account. You can access your Stripe account from the Integrations section of your website dashboard in Mailchimp.
