Complete Your Account Setup

Access the Stripe Dashboard

Create API Secret Key and Publishable Key
  1. In the “Standard Keys” section, you’ll find your existing API keys (if any). If this is your first time setting up Stripe, you’ll see a section to create a new API key.
  2. Click the “Create secret key” button to generate a new API Secret Key. A pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm the creation.
  3. Once confirmed, you’ll see your new API Secret Key. Important: Copy and save this key in a secure location, as it won’t be displayed again.
  4. Next, you’ll find your “Publishable Key” displayed on the same page. This key is used on the client-side to securely interact with Stripe.
Test Your Keys (Optional)

Use Your Keys in Your Application

Step 6: Test Payment Process

1. Once you’ve saved the changes, you may want to perform a test transaction to ensure that the integration is working properly.

    • Create a test invoice or opportunity within Labourless.
    • Proceed through the payment process to confirm that it successfully connects with Stripe for processing.
Step 7: Go Live

1. Once you’ve confirmed that the integration is working as expected be sure to replace the test keys with your actual live keys before going live.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully integrated Stripe with Labourless for payment processing.
