Discussing Solutions for Stripe Integration and Transaction Handling on Websites
In this meeting, the State Changers participants discussed several technical issues and possible solutions. The group focused on integrating and troubleshooting elements of Stripe, a payment processing service, into an application under development.
One of the State Changers encountered problems with transactional API through Mailchimp and was looking for solutions on how to manage templates.
Another participant, Aaron, needed advice on how to manually handle transactions on his page without redirecting users to another page. He initially thought displaying a Stripe checkout on his website would automatically verify his domain but learned that this was not the case.
The group suggested that Aaron might consider starting with a quick Stripe checkout setup to best debug the payment flow in his platform. It was also advised that Aaron might consider using plugins available in Bubble, a no-code platform, to embed key features into the application. Specific mention was made about considering Billflow, a service providing user-friendly experiences for embedded processes, recently bought by Stripe.
A consideration to make is being aware of the cost of the tools that are being used. But it was advised that spending a reasonable amount of money on these tools can result in saving consultancy costs.
The matter will be looked into profoundly after the meeting, and more recommendations were promised to be offered then. The meeting concluded with the mention that creating quality applications often involves searching for the suitable tools rather than struggling with incompatible ones.
